Travel Tips

  • Do not provide food or water inside the cage as it may spill and cause your animal discomfort during flight. Instead, please secure a small empty bowl inside so that the animal can be fed/watered in the event of a delay.
  • We suggest owners put a familiar object in the cage to reassure the animal during the flight, such as a blanket or a toy.
  • IATA regulation states that it is not recommended to have older animals travel by air due to stress-related effects. Air Transat will not be responsible for problems due to stress-related effects on older animals. (Consult your veterinarian).
  • Agriculture Canada and IATA do not recommend giving tranquillizers to travelling animals. If you're thinking about doing so, please consult your veterinarian.
