Pets

Enquire to bring your dog or cat in the cabin or cargo hold, and other animals in the cargo hold. Book online by adding a comment that you wish to bring your pet, as well as weight and dimensions for an approved travel crate, in the field "Message to helpdesk" at the end of the booking process. We will apply for space for your pet and confirm by e-mail if it is OK. Tickets will not be issued until space for the pet is approved. If you book the flight less than 72 hours before departure, we will try to help as best we can, but unfortunately we can't guarantee that we can accommodate your needs on such short notice. 

Please be aware that the fees are paid cash at the airport.
