Travel with your pet!

You can take a dog, a cat or a ferret on board our planes. Please note that the number of animals on any given type of aircraft is limited. Check the availability of the service by booking your ticket on or later, up to 12 hours before departure, in Manage My Booking

Transport of an animal on board

When travelling on board, your pet must spend the entire trip in a special container (either a transporter or a soft bag for the transport of animals) suitable for its weight and size. The animal has to fully fit in the kennel (no part of the body may protrude outside the carrier) with freedom of movement guaranteed so that it can stand, turn around and lie down. The weight of the animal transported in the cabin together with the container may not exceed 8 kg

For security reasons, if you are transporting your animal as carry-on baggage, we cannot assign you a front section seat (in the case of a B787, this means the first rows of each cabin class; for other aeroplane types, this means the first row in the LOT Business Class).

  • for B787 and B737 planes: 55/40/20 cm*;
  • or for DH4, E70, E75, E95 planes: 45/30/20 cm*.

Remember that your animal must remain in a transporter or a special bag throughout the flight, and during take-off, landing and in the case of turbulences, the container must be placed under the seat in front of you.
