Corsair Pet Policy 2024

Does Corsair allow dogs and cats in the cabin?

Dogs and cats in the cabin are accepted by Corsair in their travel bag, up to a combined weight of 7kg.

The travel bag or kennel must meet the Corsair specifications outlined in their pet travel policy. On the flight, the travel bag will be stowed underneath the seat in front of you, you can’t remove your cat or dog during the flight for safety reasons.

Each passenger may take one pet in the cabin, and if you’re travelling with a friend who also has a pet you won’t be able to sit together on the flight.

Corsair accepts species other than cats and dogs, including:

  • Birds
  • Guinea Pigs
  • Hamsters
  • Rabbits
  • Rodents

But cold-blooded animals are never permitted to travel in the passenger cabin, they will always fly in the hold of the plane. Birds must be at least 2 months old, and two may travel together in a suitable cage.

Brachycephalic (snub-nosed) breeds of cats and dogs are only accepted for travel in the cabin, they can’t fly in the aircraft hold.

Dogs and cats in the hold

If your feline, canine or other pet weighs more than 7kg, and up to a maximum of 50kg they must travel in the hold. Any pets in excess of 50kg are required to fly as cargo.

For the safety of your cat or dog, the kennel must meet the legal requirements of International Air Transport Association (IATA). Also, if your pet kennel has wheels, make sure that the wheels can be dismantled or locked before travel so that the kennel is not able to roll around in the hold.

Two pets of the same species, weighing up to 14kg each, and of similar size, may travel together in one travel crate. However, in this case, you’ll pay the pet fee twice.
