Live Animal Flight Ticket

Two adult animals accustomed to living together, each weighing up 14 kg and of comparable size, can be transported in a single cage/container. Animals weighing over 14 kg should be transported in separate cages/containers.

Three animals from the same delivery, of ages up to six months, can be transported in the same container/compartment.

Sedated or otherwise medicated animals pose a significant risk because their reactions to stress caused by transportation may be unpredictable. They may also need a veterinarian’s supervision for an emergency response. As the medications for sedating these animals, or anesthetic dart weapons, are forbidden in the aircraft, these animals are not accepted.
