Pets in the Cabin
Small pets (cats, dogs, hamsters, turtles etc.,) can fly in the cabin with Air Algerie if the combined weight of the pet and carrier does not exceed 13 lbs (6 kg). Your pet must remain in their carrier under the seat in front of you for the duration of the journey. Animals traveling in this manner are charged the excess baggage fee which varies depending on your destination, except on flights to/from China. Pets being transported from Algeria to China incur a charge of 15,000 DZD; China to Algeria incur a charge of 1300 CNY; and China to Africa incur a charge of 1700 CNY.
Pets in Checked Baggage
Animals who exceed the limitations to travel in the cabin can be transported as checked baggage in the hold instead if the combined weight of the pet and carrier does not exceed 50 lbs (23 kg). They'll be transported in a warm and pressurized compartment in the cargo hold. The fee for this service varies depending on your destination and is charged as excess baggage. Pets being transported from Algeria to China incur a charge of 15,000 DZD; China to Algeria incur a charge of 1300 CNY; and China to Africa incur a charge of 1700 CNY.
