Pets traveling as cargo
Whether your pet is flying as cargo, it will travel in a temperature controlled and pressurized compartment right under the cabin. Most airlines flying larger aircraft accept live animals as cargo and have made special provisions for their handling.

Requirements for Pet Cargo Crates
Your pet must travel in an IATA compliant pet crate and meet certain other requirements depending on the airline. It is considered best to have only one animal per container, but the IATA rules state that two animals can share the same container if the animals are under 14kg (30lbs) and are of the same species and compatible. It is up to the airline to set their own rules and most of them do.

Minimum Cargo Crate Requirements

•    The pet crate must be large enough for your pet(s) to stand, turn around, and lie down comfortably. Brachycephalic breeds (snub nosed) will require one size larger than normal for most airlines that permit them to fly in cargo. See sizing instructions below.
•    Handling space bars or handles must be present on the long side of the crate.
•    The container door must have a secure, spring loaded, all around locking system with the pins extending at least 1.6 cm (5/8 in) beyond the horizontal extrusions above and below the door. Many airlines will also require that the door be further secured with cable ties at each corner. Doors must be constructed of heavy plastic, welded or cast metal strong enough so that a pet cannot bend them. (We recommend metal.) The door must be nose and paw proof so as not to injure your pet in any way.
•    Both water and food bowls must be attached to the inside of the front door and be refillable from the outside of the crate without opening the door. Small funnels attached to the door by cable ties make it easier for airport handlers to refill water bowls. Food can be attached to the top of the crate in a plastic bag.
•    NO WHEELS. If the container has wheels, they should be removed or taped securely so that the kennel cannot roll.
•    The container must be identified with your pet's name and owner's contact information. The best way to do this is to attach your pet's information to the outside of the crate with duct tape or other sturdy tape.
•    Forklift spacers must be provided when the pet exceeds 132 lbs. (60kg)
