Travelling With Pets

Contact your airline in advance to determine the airline's policy on passengers travelling with pets.

When going through security please keep the following in mind:

  • Remove your pet from its carrying case and send the carrying case through the screening equipment
  • Hold your pet in your arms and proceed through the metal detector
  • Take your pet out of its cage or carrier if it is being transported in the belly hold of the aircraft. A Screening Officer will screen the cage or carrier separately
  • Be responsible for your pet and its behaviour throughout the screening process
