Pets in the Cabin
Pets are permitted to travel in the cabin with Air Austral if the combined weight of the animal and carrier does not exceed 13 lbs (6 kg). Fido should remain inside their carrier throughout the journey. Dogs and cats under the age of 4 months are not accepted in the cabin. The fee for this service is included within your carry-on allowance.
Pets in Checked Baggage
Pets who exceed the combined weight to travel in the cabin may be allowed to travel in the pressurized hold instead. Animals and their carriers are included within the baggage allowance. Any animals who exceed the weight limit will be charged an excess baggage fee.
For pets traveling in the cabin, your carrier must be specifically designed for transport in the air. For pets traveling in the hold, carriers can be between 21" x 16" x 15" (54 cm x 41 cm x 39 cm) and 40" x 27" x 26" (102 cm x 69 cm x 67 cm). You should make sure the carrier has your pet's name and contact information inside.
Air Austral doesn't allow dogs they consider to be attacking, guarding, or defensive, including mastiffs.
