There are not a few who consider their pet part of their family and that leads them to accompany their owners on many trips. In Animal DNA, we share useful information when moving with your pet by plane, within the country.
The comfort of our pets is the main axis
“Cabin or hold?” It is one of the most popular questions among those who must travel with their pets by plane.
We always recommend first contact the airline having enough time to carry out the previous procedures that will be required.
Requirements (in cabin and hold):
🐕Minimum age for dogs and cats: 12 months.
🐕 Maximum cabin step between 7 and 9 kilos according to airline.
🐕 Pets must be transported in a container provided by the passenger.

Waiting before traveling
In addition, it should be noted that Only one dog or cat per passenger can be transported in the cabin and another in the holdor both pets in the hold. If you wish to travel with more than two pets, they must be transported through the cargo system.
Minors traveling alone cannot carry animals in the cabin.
Although it seems incredible, the reservation does not guarantee that the pet can travel on that flight. In the case of transport in the warehouse, the transfer depends on the weather conditions and the possibility of transporting them safely inside the container.
