Lufthansa will transport your animals either in the cabin or in the cargo hold of the aircraft depending on their weight and size. Please note that the valid import and export by-laws of the respective countries have to be observed – in the UK this is the PETS scheme. For some dog breeds special transport regulations apply.
If you like to take your pets along on your Lufthansa flight, please notify us when you make your booking but at the latest 24 hours before the departure date.
You may take a dog or cat into the cabin, if the weight of the animal (including transport container) does not exceed eight kilograms. The animal has to be kept in a box measuring not more than 55 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm. You may use your own transport box if it has the necessary measurement and is watertight and bite proof. In addition, Lufthansa offers you a "Pet Box" for most stations at the check-in counters free of charge.
