Pets are only allowed to travel with TAROM once they have been accepted and approved. The plane you are flying on will have an affect on how many pets are allowed in the cabin: ATR 42 - maximum 2 cages accepted; B737 - maximum 3 cages accepted; and A318 - maximum 3 cages accepted. As for the hold, there are limitations on how many pets can fly with each passenger there too. On ATR 42/72 aircraft, only 1 pet is allowed for each passenger. On all Boeing aircraft, 2 pets are allowed per passenger in separate carriers. As there are only a limited number of spots on each flight for pet passengers, you should speak to them as soon as your travel plans are confirmed. You can reach the Customer Service Team directly at 973-884-3254 to guarantee Fido a spot.
