FAQ: Can I and my Pet Travel Together?

You consider your pets to be part of the family. When you have multiple cats and/or dogs, they usually come to think of each other as family, too. So, if you’re planning to move that includes air travel for your pets, you might wonder if they can travel together on the plane. The answer is maybe.

Are you talking about “together” as in traveling in the same crate?

Indian Airlines sets the basic guidelines for pet transportation in India. If you are looking for international pet travel, you’ll need to research the specific rules for your airline. Like other details of pet delivery, each airline sets their own policies.

In-cabin rules generally allow only one pet/carrier per person. If you’re traveling with another person you should each be able to bring a pet/carrier on board. It’s important to note that all airlines restrict the total number of pet kennels they will accept on any given flight, either in the cabin or in the cargo hold. Here are some examples of airline rules about pets traveling together:

Spicejet Policy

SpiceJet allows 1 dog per passenger with a maximum of 2 passengers flying with dogs so only 2 dogs per plane. They allow animals such as dogs, cats and other pets when properly crated and accompanied by valid health and vaccination certificates and other documents.
