Etihad Airways Criteria for Traveling with Pets

Etihad Airways announced that passengers can now travel with their pets in the cabin when paying an additional fee. The announcement has also stated certain criteria for passengers.

Etihad said, the pets "must be at least 16 weeks old and weigh no more than 8kg including their carrier" and travellers must be aged 18 and above to travel with them. 

Veterinary and official documents are a must, with the passenger ensuring "all entry and exit regulations for the country they are flying to and from" are met.

The fee for economy travellers is $150 (AED550) per pet for a flight six hours or less, and $250 (AED 920) for flights more than six hours.

The airline has also said that travellers can also purchase an extra seat for their pets on business or economy cabins if the travel bag or kennel fits the airline specifications.

They'll need to book their pets online 72 hours before the flight and check-in 3 hours before flying out.
