What are the Delta Air Lines rules for importing animals?
The ability to transport an animal on an airplane depends on the weight of the pet and the rules for importing animals into the country of destination (for international flights). In all cases, the service for transporting animals in the aircraft cabin or the luggage compartment is paid.
There are several pre-flight formalities and requirements related to border, customs, sanitary and quarantine, and veterinary, which the passenger must complete at the transfer airport for further transportation along the route, as well as the requirements of state authorities at transfer points for international transportation. You can familiarize yourself with these requirements at Delta Air Lines Customer Service of the official departments, as well as on the official website of the carrier airline.
How to book a flight with animals?
Transportation of animals on an aircraft is permitted by Delta Air Lines regulations, but transportation requirements may vary. In addition, a limited number of animals can be transported on the plane. Therefore, try to contact us at Delta Air Lines Booking Number, before you are flying as soon as possible to find out its conditions and to book a seat in time.
How does the transportation of pets is carried out?
To transport an animal, the passenger is obliged to provide a container, a cage of sufficient size with air access. Without a cage/container - transportation is strictly prohibited. The bottom of the container (cage) must be waterproof and covered with absorbent material. The animal must be able to stand up "full length" and turn around its axis. The lock must be secure.
The cost of transporting an animal depends on its weight. As per Delta Air Lines, pets travel in the hold of an aircraft. It is allowed to transport animals in the aircraft cabin, the weight of which, together with the container (cage), does not exceed 5–8 kg, with dimensions in the sum of three dimensions not exceeding 115 centimeters.
Safety tips for preparing your pet for the flight:
Stock up on drinking water - you get dehydrated faster in an airplane than on the ground.
Feed your pet a light meal two hours before departure.
Remember to walk the animal before leaving.
Make sure your pet does not suffer from a lack of air in its container or cage.
Do not try to calm the animal with medication.
