Pet Travel with Lufthansa

We have partnered with Lufthansa to offer our customers safe, efficient and reliable pet transport.
Lufthansa is the largest German airline and combined with all their subsidiaries, they are the largest airline in Europe as well. They serve locations worldwide and are approved to fly into London Heathrow, Dublin and Edinburgh.

They welcome pets onboard both in the cabin and the hold on several of their flights.

Shipping Your Pet with Lufthansa

Many travellers opt to fly with Lufthansa Airlines, because unlike most airlines, they allow certain sized pets in the cabin. This means owners can travel alongside their pets making both parties feel more relaxed and at ease during the journey.

Alternatively, if your pet exceeds the cabin size restrictions and depending on the regulations applicable in the destination country, your pet can travel as excess baggage in the aircraft’s air-conditioned cargo hold. Lufthansa Cargo also offers pet transport as air freight.

Lufthansa Pet Travel Restrictions

Animals that are classified as fighting or dangerous must be transported in special crates in the hold. This includes breeds such as; Bull Terriers, Rottweilers and American Bulldogs.

Although it’s not forbidden, the airline advises that snub-nosed animals such as Pugs, Chow Chows and Boxers are not transported due to health complications.
