When traveling with SAS, you can take your pet with you. It will travel safely and in comfort, either in the cabin or in the cargo section.
The number of pets allowed on each flight is limited.
Pets traveling in the cabin must be able to stand up and turn around inside the carrier (maximum size 40 x 25 x 23 cm). If these requirements are not fulfilled we have the right to deny your pet on board.
Remember to have the correct documentation certifying your pet's health for entering and traveling through all countries on your journey. If possible, your pet should have a microchip or a tattoo as well as a pet passport for travel within or to the EU.
Different countries have different conditions for bringing animals in to the country. For this reason you need to have all the necessary information before booking your ticket.
If you are continuing your trip on another airline, other rules may apply.
Each passenger can bring one container/carrier, holding up to two animals, as carry-on baggage. The maximum weight of a container/carrier, including the animal, is 8 kg.
We follow operational regulations and guidelines to keep your animal safe and healthy when traveling in the cabin.
A cat or dog traveling in the cabin is considered one piece of carry-on baggage.
The maximum dimensions for a container/carrier are 40 x 25 x 23 cm.
The maximum weight of a container/carrier, including the animal, is 8 kg.
Each traveler can bring one container/carrier as carry-on.
The carrier/container can be soft or hard, but it has to be suitable for flight transport of animals. It has to be made of a well ventilated strong, leakage and bite proof material.
The container/carrier must be large enough for the pet to stand up, lie down and turn comfortably in. If you don’t fulfill these requirements you may not be allowed to bring your pet onboard.
The pet must remain inside the container/carrier for the entire flight. It must be placed under the seat in front of you.
Up to two cats or dogs can travel in the same container/carrier. It has to fit under the seat in front of you and its total weight cannot exceed 8 kg.
At SAS, you pay a flat rate per container/carrier and direction, outbound or inbound, including connections. Service dogs travel for free in the cabin with SAS, when on active duty. You can bring one service animal per person.
We follow operational regulations and guidelines to keep your animal safe and healthy when traveling in our cargo hold.
Animals checked in as cargo must travel in transport containers/carriers that are leakproof, solid, tight, clean and disinfected.
The container/carrier must be made of fiberglass, metal (not welded or wire mesh), rigid plastic, solid wood or plywood with handles on the sides and a solid floor. Net floors are not accepted.
The container/carrier must be equipped with containers for food and water. The bottom of the container/carrier must be covered with a layer of newspaper or sawdust – not hay or straw.
For the animal's comfort, the container/carrier must be large enough for the animal to stand up, lie down and turn comfortably. If the carrier does not fulfill these requirements, you may not be able to transport your animal.
SAS only transports containers/carriers approved by veterinary authorities. Containers and carriers are available at Trust Forwarding.
Animals weighing more than 14 kg must travel in separate containers/carriers.
Two adult animals of comparable size up to 14 kg each can be transported in the same container/carrier if they are accustomed to living together.
Up to three animals can be transported together, if they are under six months old and come from the same litter.
When animals are transported in the cargo hold the air 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 we can transport on the same flight.
