Register an animal for transport in the cargo hold
You can take your dog or cat with you on your Lufthansa flight as excess baggage in special transport containers in the air-conditioned cargo hold. We’ll check the availability and make the booking for you no later than 72 hours before departure. We shall inform you by email if it is not possible to make the booking for your pet. If your booking is successful, you must pay the fees incurred when checking in at the airport.
Since 1 January 2020, the transport of dogs and cats belonging to snub-nosed (brachycephalic) breeds is subject to restrictions.
Due to the current situation, no new bookings for animals in the cargo hold will be accepted on Lufthansa flights that are operated between 16 July and 30 September 2022. Existing bookings are not affected by this.
