Icelandair: Pet Policy

What methods of transport does Icelandair provide for my pet?

All pets transported on Icelandair travel in specially climate controlled transport areas in the cargo area of the aircraft. Escort, rescue, and sniffer dogs may be carried in the cabin, however they must also be booked in advanced.

What are the restrictions for traveling with a pet?

A maximum of four animal crates can be carried on each aircraft, however two animals can share a crate if both are small and of the same species. The passenger must provide their own pet crate. The charge for pet transport is the excess baggage charge applicable to the destination.

Please note: Many countries require a mandatory quarantine of pets upon entry. It is the responsibility of the passenger to determine the requirements of the country being entered. Please contact the embassy of your destination to determine if travel with your pet is permitted before you book your pet.

How do I make travel arrangements for my pet?

To book your pet for transport please contact an Icelandair reservation office. When booking your pet for transport, you will be required to provide the exact dimensions and weight of the crate including the pet inside for a confirmation.

Please contact the airline directly for information about traveling with a service animal.
