Pets in the Cabin
Aeroflot accepts small pets (dogs, cats, and household birds) in the cabin on certain flights, as long as the combined weight of the pet and carrier does not exceed 17 lbs (8 kg). Each passenger can bring 1 carrier onto a flight, however, several animals (birds) of the same species can be transported in the same carrier if their weight does not exceed the maximum. The pet fee for animals traveling in the cabin is 75 EUR for international flights and 61 EUR for domestic flights.
Pets in Checked Baggage
Pets that exceed the maximum weight for transport in the cabin can travel in the hold instead. Animals and carriers being transported in the hold must weigh less than 110 lbs (50 kg). Passengers who travel with multiple pets in separate carriers will be charged for each pet separately. The usual fees for traveling with a pet in the hold are 92 EUR for international flights and 61 EUR for domestic flights.
Pets in Cargo
Customers who would like to transport their pets separately from them, or own animals that exceed the maximum weight limits, can contact Aeroflot Cargo by phone at (+8) (499)-755-2-555 or by email at email@example.com
