How to add a pet to my flight on Air Europa?

  1. Inform Air Europa about your pet while making your reservations.
  2. Prepare your pet’s passport.
  3. Check that the container is IATA authorized.
  4. Check to see whether your pet does have a microchip implanted in its body.
  5. Consult your veterinarian.
  6. Check in at least 1 – 2 hours before your flight.

Tips

  1. Before booking your tickets, contact your airline or go to their website to find out about the in-cabin pet and carriage policies. Most airlines allow dogs weighing up to lbs to fly in-cabin as provided as they are comfy and can turn around in their container.
  2. Your airline may also demand extra proof and current vaccinations, so inquire regarding their vaccination and paperwork requirements. Most airline companies have lately begun requiring evidence of rabies vaccination at the ticket desk.
  3. If your dog has never traveled before, you should consult with your veterinarian to ensure that he or she is ready for takeoff. The veterinarian can also provide you with the essential immunizations and documentation requested by your airline. Your carrier may have particular papers for the veterinarian to fill out in some situations, so we recommend verifying the relevant documentation with your carrier prior your visit to the vet is especially important for overseas travel.

Inquire with your veterinarian about any worries you may have during your appointment. This is also an excellent moment to ask your veterinarian whether any supplements are recommended to help your dog relax throughout the trip.

  1. If you’re going overseas or have a long flight, you might want to break it up with connections each six hours or so. Most domestic & global airports feature pet relief facilities in which you can let the pup sprawl out and empty themselves, making the long flight much more bearable for your pooch.
