On our flights, you may bring your pet aboard the aircraft. We accept dogs and cats that are at least 3 months and 21 days old. Just like you, we want the best for your loyal four-footed friend during the flight. So read this information carefully and prepare for your journey well in advance.
To transport your pet in the cabin, it will need to be placed in a travel bag or kennel. This will be placed under your seat and, for the safety of your pet, may not be opened or moved during the flight.
€ 40 per one-way journey.
You can transport your pet in our hold. This is a special heated section provided with climate and air pressure control so that you can be assured that your dog or cat is travelling as comfortably as possible.
For the safety of your pet, it is important that the kennel meets the legal requirements set by the IATA (International Air Transport Association). Ask your pet shop for more information about these permitted kennels.

As a responsible pet owner, you want to have your dog or cat transported as comfortably as possible during the flight. This is why it is important for the kennel or travel bag to be large enough for your dog or cat to be able to stand up in it (without touching the top), to be able to turn around, and to be able to lie down comfortably. The kennel must have a fiberglass or rigid plastic shell. A kennel made of metal or wood is not allowed. Place a soft blanket, towel or some newspapers on the bottom of the kennel. For reasons of safety, toys cannot be transported in the kennel.
Snub-nosed dogs like pugs, boxers, bulldogs, Pekinese dogs and Persian cats can have difficulty breathing during the flight because of the high temperatures and stress. To ensure their well-being, most of these snub-nosed pets are therefore only transported in the cabin.
So-called 'fighting dogs' or 'attack dogs' that fall under the categories below may not be transported either in the cabin or in the hold. These dogs may not necessarily be of a particular breed but are comparable to:
Your dog or cat also has to be accompanied with a passport: ‘the pet passport’. This must be issued by an authorised veterinarian. The passport must contain the following information:
In order to fly with your pet, your pet must have been microchipped with an electronic identification system (transponder). If your pet received a clearly visible tattoo prior to 3 July 2011, your pet can also travel within the European Union using the information in this tattoo.
Unfortunately, you are not allowed to take pets to all destinations as the transport of pets may not be permitted by the local authorities. For this reason, Transavia does not transport pets to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Scotland, Malta, the United Arab Emirates and Chambéry. (This is due to the regulations at the airports and has nothing to do with the regulations in these countries).
