Travelling with animals
When your pets travel with you
Most airlines transport lightweight dogs and cats (less than 5 kilograms) in the aircraft cabin. Heavier animals, and pets such as birds, guinea pigs or rabbits, may only be transported in the hold.
If you want to take your pet with you, you have to register it well in time and in writing at your travel office.
Animal transport containers for pets must generally be procured by the traveller. In Bremen, these can be purchased for dogs and cats from Lufthansa, for example, Tel. +49 (0) 421 53 61 426/ 27 (Fax +49 (0) 421 - 53 61451).
Fares vary from one airline to another. Please address your enquiries to the airline or your travel agency.
Animals are normally checked in at the same time as passengers, without extra waiting.
