Video: Explore the Lufthansa Animal Lounge in Frankfurt

Pet travel by air is safer and more transparent than ever before, but the details and processes can still feel mysterious, especially if you're planning your very first pet shipping experience.

That makes it great to see videos like this one just released by Lufthansa Cargo. Lufthansa is a very pet friendly airline, largely thanks to its dedicated Animal Lounge in Frankfurt, Germany.

Pets who are traveling to Frankfurt or just transiting through can take advantage of this modern and accommodating facility, ultimately making their overall trip much more orderly and less stressful.

Take a look at the video to find out more about the first class care offered by the Frankfurt Animal Lounge.

Hi Cherif! We are unaware of any comfort area inside Frankfurt Airport (besides the Animal Lounge) however, feel free to contact Fraport directly here. Hope this helps!

Lufthansa sounds like a great pet transporter, but what if one of my nine cats gets overwhelmed by the experience or becomes sick during the flight? Does anyone check them during the flight? I'll be travelling from Kuwait to Corfu. I'm really worried.

Hi Min, When your cats fly in cargo they will be unattended, but Lufthansa's staff will make sure they're secure and comfortable before takeoff and after landing. We know it can be stressful to have a pet flying on a plane, which is why we use airlines like this to help ensure the smoothest travel experience possible. The best thing you can do to help with their anxiety is to get them acclimated to their crates! This will make a tremendous difference in how they experience a long trip in one.
