Animals in cargo hold
Animals that are checked in as cargo must travel in transport boxes
that are solid, tight, clean and disinfected.
The box must be made of
fiberglass, metal (not wire or metal mesh) or hard plastic and equipped with handles on the sides. The box must also be equipped with containers for food and water and the bottom of the cage should be covered with a layer of newspaper or sawdust (not hay or straw).
For the animal's comfort,
the cage must be large enough so that the animal can stand up, turn and lie naturally. If the cage does not fulfill the requirements, check-in staff can reject the cage.

When animals are transported in the cargo hold, the pressure and temperature are the same as in the passenger cabin.
The availability of oxygen in the cargo hold for live animals limits the number and size of the animals that are transported at the same time.
