  • Airline Travel With Cat


    I'm planning on taking my cat from Germany to Ireland in June and although the most important things (blood test, paperwork, vaccinations, and microchip) are arranged, I'm freaking out about the actual travel. I keep hearing horror stories about cats not being allowed in cabin despite the booking. I've found on so join the forum to give a shot.

    I'm doing all the research that I can, I have started shopping for all the travel essentials (wee pads, wipes, bin bags, foldable drink bowl, etc.) but I would love to hear some positive stories from others who took their cat (in cabin) and how everything went fine and perfectly.

    Thanks in advance!

    nathandev - all live animals must enter Ireland as air cargo according to regulations of commercial airlines. You can research pet friendly ferries between the mainland and Ireland such as Irish Ferries so you can avoid this requirement. :-)

      If transporting your pet by air is the only option, find out whether they can travel in the cabin with you. Most airlines will allow you to take a cat or small dog in the cabin for an additional fee. But you must call the airline well in advance; there are limits to the number of animals allowed in the cabin.

        The weight of the pet including the container should not exceed 5 kgs. for carriage in the cabin. Pets of larger size / weight will be carried in the cargo hold. Dogs and cats must be at least 8 weeks of age to travel. ([url][/url]) instagram saver ([url][/url])
