Terms & Conditions of Pet Transportation:

  • Pets must be clean (a check must be performed prior to entrance into the cabin), quiet and also must not upset other passengers during the flight.
  • The animal must have a valid Anti-Rabies vaccination on the day of the travel. The Anti-Rabies vaccination is repeated every year. If the animal had his first Anti-rabies vaccination, it should not travel, unless 21 days have passed from the date of vaccination. The same restriction of 21 days applies in the event that the vaccination is applied after it had expired.

If you wish to transfer your pet you must contact the Reservations Department at least 48 hours prior to departure, in order to register the pet and (if possible) to confirm its carriage, as the number of pets allowed on each flight is limited.
