Preparing properly for your pet’s trip

To ensure your optimum travel conditions for your pet, we suggest you follow the advice below:

  • Avoid carrying it for too long in your car boot just before boarding. Give it some exercise just before putting it in its cage.
  • Think about feeding your pet several hours before the flight (4 to 6 hours) to prevent the digestive phase from occurring during the flight.
  • Remember to give it a drink just before departure to prevent excessive dehydration during the flight.
  • We recommend not giving it any medicines or tranquilisers. Ask your vet for advice on this subject. Cover the bottom of its cage with an absorbent material, such as a blanket.
  • Do not hesitate to put a piece of your clothing in its cage. Since it has your scent, your pet will be less stressed during the flight.

Your pet must be kept in the container throughout the flight, and remains under your entire responsibility.

Everything you need to know about carrying a pet in the cabin (animal weighing less than 5kg)

In the cabin, you can travel with only one pet. And if you are accompanied by someone else carrying a pet, you will be separated on-board, for safety reasons. The pet is your responsibility throughout the flight.

Attention

  • Your pet is not included in your cabin allowance. You must pay the following allowance fee :
  • 50€ between Paris and Pointe-à-Pitre, Fort-de-France, Reunion island and Dzaoudzi
  • 75€ between Paris and Montréal, Tananarivo, Dakar or Abidjan
  • Carrying pets in the cabin to/from Mauritius island, Saint Lucia, Saint Barthelemy or San Marteen  is prohibited.

Your pet must be kept in a regulatory container locked throughout the flight:

  • This container must be equipped with an appropriate locking system and air holes. It must not exceed hand luggage dimensions, so that it can be placed under your seat (length + width + depth = 115 cm maximum).
  • Upon departure from Orly, Pointe-à-Pitre, Fort-de-France and Reunion, you can buy a regulatory container (length + width + depth = 115 cm maximum) for €50 (guide price on 23 April 2012, subject to modification without notice)
  • The maximum authorised weight of the pet and its container is 5kg. Above this weight, your pet will need to travel in the hold.

If your dog is a guide dog, it will be allowed in the cabin provided that it does not occupy a seat, is properly muzzled, harnessed and kept on the lead. It will travel for free, and as for all pets, you will need to make a prior request at least 72 h before departure.  Contact us
