Pets in the Cabin
Falcons are allowed in the main aircraft cabin, as long as all necessary documents have been obtained, but pet dogs and cats are not permitted.
Pets in Cargo
The Etihad Cargo Team takes care of the transportation of pets, horses, and other animals for Etihad. This cargo service transports pets to/from airplanes in climate controlled vehicles. All pets are then moved to climate-controlled, pressurized compartments on the aircraft. Cats and dogs are temporarily housed in larger kennels when not in transit. Each animal requires different documentation depending on type, final destination, and country of origin. However, you will definitely need to have a health certificate, an import /export permit, vaccination proof, and a pet passport. For more details and to book your pet as cargo, you can contact the Etihad AVI team at Cargocs@etihad.ae or call (+971) 259-900-99 to speak to somebody outside of the UAE and (800) 2535 for calls inside the UAE.
