Can I carry my pet with me on a Lufthansa flight?

Asked 9 months ago
Yes, Lufthansa allows passengers to carry pets on their flights. However, certain guidelines and restrictions apply. Small dogs and cats are permitted in the cabin, but they must stay in a suitable carrier that fits under the seat. The carrier's dimensions should not exceed 55 x 40 x 23 cm and the weight, including the pet, should be no more than 8 kg. Pets that exceed these limits or other animals such as birds, reptiles, or rodents must be transported in the cargo hold. Special reservations and fees may be required for transporting pets. Additionally, specific documentation, such as health certificates and country-specific regulations, may be necessary for international travel. It is recommended to contact the Lufthansa Service Center in advance to ensure compliance and make the necessary arrangements for traveling with pets.
