Nordica only allow a limited number of pets in the cabin, so you need to let them know as soon as your travel plans are confirmed to guarantee Fido a spot. You can do this by contacting Nordica Customer Service at (+372) 664-2200. They advise you do this within 24 hours of your own reservation, but at least 24 hours before departure of your flight. If Nordica meet the maximum number of pets to travel in the aircraft, the team may refuse your pet passage on board.
Pets in the Cabin
Pets are welcome to travel in the cabin on certain Nordica flights. The combined weight of the pet and carrier cannot exceed 17 lbs (8 kg). Animals in the cabin must stay in the carrier during the whole flight, and be placed under the seat in front during take-off, landing, and in case of turbulence. The fee for this service is 50 EUR for each direction of travel.
Pets in Checked Baggage
Pets who exceed the weight limit to fly in the cabin can be transported as checked baggage instead. The combined weight of the pet and carrier cannot exceed 132 lbs (60 kg) for animals to be transported as cargo or checked baggage. The pet fee for animals that weigh under 33 lbs (15 kg) is 100 EUR; and the fee for animals weighing more than this are 200 EUR.
Pets in Cargo
The carriage of animals as cargo in the baggage hold is subject to the same requirements as animals as checked baggage. The pet fee for animals traveling as cargo depends on the size of the carrier and the combined weight. There may be additional fees depending on the destination of your travel. Nordica will notify you of extra fees regarding carriage of animals when you reserve your spot on board.
