IATA recommendations and standards
IATA provides recommendations and sets standards relating to the air transport of live animals and provides information to help you prepare your animal for its flight.
We provide travel boxes that meet IATA’s guidelines. You will need to provide us with your animal’s dimensions and weight. If your animal already has a travel box you will need to check it is still the right size.
very young animals
IATA stipulates that puppies and kittens under eight weeks old may not travel by air. Most airlines prefer them to be at least 10 weeks old and in some cases 16 weeks, depending on the length of the journey. There may also be other restrictions if the weather is very hot or very cold.
