Transporting animals by air is by far the fastest and safest method of travel. Etihad Cargo offers customised solutions for transporting animals, from family pets to global conservation projects. And when you transport your pet with Etihad Cargo, you'll earn Etihad Guest Miles too thanks to our Personal Cargo programme.
We strictly adhere to all regulations to ensure the safest treatment of all species entrusted in our care.
Dedicated handling, pallet build-up and ramp transport by specially trained staff
Climate-controlled and pressurised compartments to ensure maximum comfort in the aircraft hold
Dedicated vehicles, available for bulk hold loading, to transport animals between the aircraft and our animal handling facilities
Adherence to Etihad Aviation Group Animal Welfare and Conservation Policy
Working closely with local vets, we’ve transported over 600 pets worldwide.
We understand that your pets are members of your family, so we make sure they’re well taken care of in climate-controlled and pressurised compartments. Your pets are safe in our care.
We always recommend that you speak to a vet before transporting your pet. In Abu Dhabi, please contact the British Veterinary Centre , American Veterinary Centre or the German Veterinary Clinic.

Almost all animals will need to have a health certificate, import /export permit and vaccination passport.
