Can my dog travel inside the plane with me as opposed to putting the crate in cargo?


Hi Karen,

The answer to this question depends on the size of your dog as well as the airline you choose. Each airline has different rules (KLM restricts cabin travel to dogs who weigh less than 13 lbs, for example), so we encourage you to start researching early to determine what your options may be.

Take a look at the pet import requirements for Austria, read about cabin vs. cargo pet travel, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any more questions. Good luck!
