Flying your pets Overseas
PDF E-mail

There are three different ways to transport your pet by air. aereo

First, some airlines will allow you to travel with a small pet in the cabin of the plane if your pet will fit in a approved carrier under a passenger seat.

The second way offered by many airlines is “accompanied baggage” where your pet travels in the cargo hold alongside your checked luggage. What’s important to know is that the airlines allow you to transport your pet as accompanied baggage only when you are a passenger traveling on the same flight as your pet.

If you will travel on the same flight as your pet, you don't need to be assisted by a pet transport company: 
just call the cargo department of the airline.

The third option available through many airlines is to transport your pet as a “live animal” Cargo Shipment. In the cargo system, pets are transported in the same pressurized holds as those in the checked-baggage system. This method is safe and humane ways to transport your pet.

Contact us directly to determine the best option for you and your pet.
