Pets in the Cabin

Unfortunately, Singapore Airlines does not accept animals to travel in the cabin on any of their flights.

Pets in Checked Baggage

Your pet can travel with you on the same flight as checked baggage, as long as it's at least 3 months old. The combined weight of your pet and carrier should be under 70 lbs (32 kg) to qualify for transport as checked baggage with Singapore Air. If more than 1 pet is travelling with you, they must be housed in separate carriers. Puppies or kittens from the same litter may occupy the same carrier if they're 3 months or older, and have a combined weight less than 30 lbs (14 kg). A maximum of 2 puppies or kittens are allowed in each carrier. The fee for this service is calculated as checked baggage and varies depending on the weight of your pet and your travel plans. The fee for journeys to/from the US is between $150-225; and the fee for trips elsewhere is between $50-120.

Pets in Cargo

Pets that exceed 70 lbs (32 kg) with their carriers can be transported as cargo instead. You can contact the Atlanta Cargo Office at (770) 755-1909 for more information.

Carrier Guidelines

For pets traveling in the hold, carriers must not exceed 22" H (56 cm) on A330 aircraft, 40" H (101 cm) on B777 aircraft, 23" H (60 cm) on A380 aircraft, and 30" H (76 cm) on A350 aircraft. They must be of the right size: should have enough space for your pet to turn around while standing, sit erect, and lie in a natural position. They must also be well ventilated on at least 3 sides, with the majority of the ventilation on the upper part of the carrier. Additionally, they must come with food and water containers fixed inside the carrier or accessible for replenishment from outside, and be leak and escape-proof.

    Be careful about "special feature" of Singapore airlines.

    On their site on 'Connections, transshipments and transits' page is specified:

    Note that we do not accept pets from other airlines on all our flights.


    By simple words, if flight has 2 parts, say - first one operated by Lufthanza (which allows travel with pet) and second one operated by Singapore airlines (which also allows travel with pet), then you CANNOT travel with pet.
