Animals are not permitted in the cabin of Emirates flights, with the exception of falcons between Dubai and certain destinations in Pakistan, and Guide Dogs for the Blind – please see our information on passengers with special needs.
For all other itineraries, falcons, cats, dogs and pet birds can be transported as checked baggage in the hold, provided the total journey time (including any transit time) is less than 17 hours, and all appropriate conditions are met. Please contact your local Emirates office well in advance of travel for more information.
Emirates charges normal excess baggage rates for animals transported as checked baggage, based on the combined weight of the animal(s) and container. These charges apply in all cases, even when no other checked baggage is being carried.
