Cathay Pacific Pet Policy
Cathay Pacific requires that your pet be accompanied by a certificate of good health, and that your dog or cat is transported in an approved cargo crate. Cathay Pacific does not allow pets to travel in the cabin.
Your veterinarian will be certifying that your pet is healthy enough to travel and is free of diseases communicable to humans. In addition, during periods of very cold weather, an acclimation certificate may also be required. Cathay Pacific further requires that you provide copies of the veterinary certificates and other documents required by the country to which you are traveling.
Your airline pet passport package includes:
- Instructions, in cabin and cargo regulations, and other airline pet policy or transporting your pet on Cathay Pacific
- Acclimation Certificate and instructions for its use (Optional - add $2.00)
- Airline Veterinary Certificate and instructions
- Pet Passport Folder - included with First Class Mail Delivery Options above
- Unlimited Email Support
During periods of very cold weather, an acclimation certificate may also be required for pets traveling in cargo. On most airlines, pets are not accepted for transport in the cargo section of the airline when the ground temperature is below 45 degrees Fahrenheit (8 degrees Celsius) at any location on the itinerary UNLESS the pet has a veterinarian's statement of low temperature acclimation (Acclimation Certificate). Add this item for cold weather travel by selecting the option above.
All instructions and Cathay Pacific pet policies are verified at the time of order. Requirements to fly your dog or cat with Cathay Pacific are included. Enforcement may not be consistent at every airport and having proper documentation will better ensure that no problems will arise during your travels.
Additional forms can be self printed from the Email Attachment option.
There are no refunds on airline pet policy packages packages unless there is a problem with the information or forms provided.
Snub nose cats/dogs
Posted by Unknown on 11th Jul 2012
We did not use the CX form/info in the end as our cat is a snub nose cat which was not mention in the pet travel website that snub nose cats/dogs are not allowed to be on major airlines as excess baggage as well as cargo. We only found out after we bought the CX forms/info and made further enquiries with CX. However, Jerry is nice and allowed us to have a replacement of another airline free of charge.
