Brachycephalic animals

Conscious of the importance of caring for your pet, we cannot transport them in the aircraft hold since they are more susceptible to heat stroke and breathing problems when exposed to stress or high temperatures.
You only can travel with it on board but it must meet the conditions for carriage in the cabin.

You can also contact IAG Cargo to find out how to transport them as cargo.
