  • NYC to Sofia Bulgaria

    This is our last "big flight" to Europe, but we want to make it as quick as possible for the pups. It's going to be a long one... 13 hours with probably a layover in Warsaw, flying with a Bulgarian Airline. OR I might fly direct to somewhere like Amsterdam or Madrid and then drive, but that's rough on the dogs too!

    Anyone ever do one of these long haul flights with dogs in cargo?

    Taking your pet to Europe

    We deal with hundreds of traveling pet owners who take their pets with them to Europe. We always recommend that they depart from the East Coast in order to cut down on the time the pet will be in the crate.

    Be sure that you have a pet crate that is large enough and is IATA/APHIS compliant or they may turn your pet away at check in. I am not sure which EU country you are flying to but I assume your pet has been properly micro chipped and that you have the EU form 998 for that country. If you decide to enter another country on the way to your final destination then you will need the EU form for that country as well.

    As long as your pet is not a snub nosed breed it should do fine as the airlines are generally very careful with handling of pet animals.

      Hi Jerry,

      We've actually flown the NYC to Madrid flight before, so we're familiar with the regulations (and both of our dogs are microchipped with the EU compatible chip). You wrote, "I am not sure which EU country you are flying to" um... the title of this thread might give you a hint! I understand what you're saying though. I think and correct me if I'm wrong, but I won't need to fill out the form for countries that are simply layovers, as I won't be going through customs with the dogs, they will be put into a hold area and moved to the next plane for the second leg of the trip.

        I'm considering taking a road trip across Canada (I currently live in NYC) with my dog (a 65 lb Golden Retriever) and am researching budget, pet-friendly housing alternatives for the trip.Seems that most hostels do not allow pets and, while I've identified some pet-friendly hotels, the cost will add up quickly.
