Animals with Air France

If you have decided to travel with your animals with Air France … you can sleep peacefully. You can take your faithful friend on board with you, as long as he has had all the mandatory vaccines, and he is at least 15 weeks of age.

The animal must be transported in a container with maximum dimensions of  46 x 28 x 24 cm; or, in a transport case with a maximum size of  46 x 28 x 20 cm. Good ventilation is recommended because the animal will not be able to go outside for the duration of the flight.
For intercontinental flights, you must go to the check-in desk AT LEAST 3 HOURS BEFORE the departure of your flight. For other flights, however, it is necessary to show up AT LEAST 150 MINUTES before the flight.

Each passenger can bring on board only one dog or cat inside the container. The maximum weight allowed is 8 kg including the pet carrier.
