  • Pet transportation is not included in the free baggage allowance and is subject to a fee.
  • A reservation must be completed and confirmed at least six hours prior to the flight in order to transport a pet either in the cabin or in the aircraft hold. Even if a request to travel with a pet is granted during the booking process, it may be denied at the airport.
  • The number of pets that can be carried on the plane varies depending on the aircraft type. Except for shipments via Turkish Cargo, a maximum of two pet carriers are permitted for each passenger. However, only one carrier may be carried in the cabin; the other is subjected to AVIH (carriage in the cargo section of the aircraft).
