  • Can small pets travel with Lufthansa from Bahrain to the US?

    We are leaving Bahrain with our cats for the US next month and would like to have our cats in the cabin with us. We contacted Lufthansa (their offices in Germany, UK and the US) but are getting conflicting information each time we called. We were told that no small pets are allowed in cabin for flights from and to Bahrain.

    Has any one traveled FROM Bahrain with small pets in the cabin recently?

    Thanks.

    Hi Ksakitties - Bahrain requires that live animals arrive in the country as manifest cargo. That is why Lufthansa will not permit pets to travel to or from Bahrain in the cabin of the aircraft.

      Does it mean that they should be transported on some special boxes and in a cargo part of a plane? Or this makes travelling with pets impossible?

        No, live animals can travel as manifest cargo. They need to be in a cargo crate like these: http://www.pettravelstore.com/categories/Pet-Crates-%26-Accessories/Pet-Crates/ They will need to travel in the cargo hold of the airplane. You will need to contact the cargo department of the airline.
