Pet Travel Question: Moving from Turkey

Name: Cansu
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Labrador
From: Turkey

I wanted to use a direct flight from Turkey to US to make the trip shorter for my dog. Only direct flight is with Turkish Airlines. Is Turkish Airlines a pet friendly airline? Or would it be better to use KLM or Lufthansa and make a transit somewhere in Europe.



Hi Cansu,


Thanks for contacting us. These are the pet import requirements for the United States just in case you'd like to review them. We often use KLM and Lufthansa and generally find them good options for travel, and when scheduling trips we often opt to break the journey into parts in order to allow for stretching/bathroom stops.

As far as flying out of Turkey goes, it will be important to do some research and find a trustworthy agent to help you get through customs, etc. Airport regulations aren't exactly standardized here and situations can be unpredictable. We'd be happy to help you out with any questions you have about this process!

Please contact us if you would like to speak to a Pet Relocation Specialist, and good luck with everything!
