Can a cat be taken onboard an airplane for a transatlantic flight? What is needed as far as paperwork?

Thank you,



Hi Tomas,

Yes, many airlines allow pets, including cats, to fly on board the plane either in the cabin or in the climate-controlled cargo area. To figure out what you need to do to arrange this cat move, take a look at the pet import requirements for the Czech Republic and do a little research into your airline choices to find out who your best choice is and what they require. Finally, be sure your cat is well-acquainted with the travel carrier.

If you have any more questions please contact us, and good luck with the trip!
