How to Travel with Pets by Air

Going on a holiday with your pet? Be sure to follow the steps below to ensure both you and your pet have a good journey.

  • Take your pet to the vet before travelling and ensure they are safe from all respiratory and heart conditions and are perfectly safe to travel. It is very important that your pet is also free from motion sickness to travel by air.
  • Pick a few toys that they like to play with and place them in their crate to keep them occupied.
  • Keep your pet in a closed crate and take them on long drives before you take them on their first air  travel. This would help them to get accustomed to staying within a closed space for a long time.
  • It is important for your pet not to panic during their journey as they might injure themselves. Use a pheromone collar to soothe pets during travel. Alternatively your vet might also suggest tranquilizers which are safe for your pet.
  • Remember to book your pet’s flight when you book your own. Make sure you only use the airline’s approved crate or carrier.
  • Do not over feed your pet right before departure. Add some food and water to the crate in which the pet is travelling. Also make sure that their bowels are emptied before the journey.
  • Add your contact address and phone number to the crate or your pet’s name tag.
  • Finally, on reaching your destination choose a pet friendly hotel.
