Transport in the cabin

The only animals permitted to travel in the cabin are cats, dogs and small songbirds (budgies, canaries).

The weight of the pet with its crate should not exceed 8 kg. Crate sizes should not exceed 23 cm height, 30 cm width and 40 cm length.

The transportation of pets is not included in the free baggage allowance and is subject to a fee. Fees and rules for pets accepted on board AnadoluJet flights may vary.


Important considerations

  • Passengers traveling with pets in the aircraft cabin must keep the animals in a carrier/cage under the seat in front of them.
  • Passengers traveling with pets in the cabin are restricted to window seats (with the exception of emergency exit or infant bassinet rows).
  • Cats (Birman, Exotic, Persian, Himalayan, Burmese, Scottish Fold, etc.) and dogs (Affenpinscher, Pekingese, Pug (all breeds), Shar Pei, Shih Tzu, Japanese Dog, Lhasa Apso, Tibetan Spaniel, Chow Chow, English Little Spaniel, English Bulldog, French Bulldog, Boston Terrier, Boxer, Brussels Griffon, Bullmastiff, English Mastiff etc.) with respiratory problems are permitted in the cabin (PETC) if they do not exceed 8 kilograms in their carriers/bags and the carriers do not exceed 23 centimeters in height, 30 centimeters in width, and 40 centimeters in length.
  • Parrot and pigeon breeds (except those in CITES List-1) must be transported in the aircraft’s cargo hold (AVIH). As small bird breeds other than budgies and canaries are not permitted in the cabin, they can be transported via Turkish Cargo.
  • Only animals of the same species and living habits may be transported in the same cage within the cabin. Two birds, two cats, or two dogs that are accustomed to each other may travel in the cabin and in the same cage, as long as their combined weight does not exceed 8 kilograms.

Turkish Airlines is not liable for the health of pets during or after the flight.
