Traveling with a pet

Traveling with a pet

Carrying a small pet is possible

Carrying a small pet is possible on any SKY express route if this transportation is not subject to restrictions under applicable law and does not jeopardize flight safety in accordance with applicable international and domestic regulations and flight safety guidelines. The ability of your pet to travel in the cabin or luggage compartment depends on the aircraft type, the weight of the animal and the size of its transport cage. However, your pet will travel safely and comfortably, whether in the aircraft’s cabin or aircraft’s hold.

The reservation for your pet’s transportation can be made no later than 24 hours before the departure of the flight, either online or by contacting the SKY express call center. The pet/animal’s health book must be presented for inspection and the pet/animal must have been fitted with the required ID microchip.

In case you are travelling with an infant, you are not allowed to travel with a pet in cabin as well.

Remember that if you are carrying a pet, you should be at the check-in point at least one hour before your scheduled departure time, and you must have your pet’s health booklet to be checked.

If the pet is not accompanied by their owners, you must provide a written transfer license from them.
