One pet per passenger is allowed. If the same passenger wishes to carry 2 pets (2 cats or 2 dogs/ the combination of 1 cat and 1 dog is not allowed), the main requirement is that the pets must be transported in the same carrier with enough room for both, and their weight together with the pet carrier must not exceed 8 kg and the pets must be accustomed to each other.

In order to travel with your pet, you must inform our Call Center at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled departure of your flight.
