  • Travelers are reminded that every country has different rules and regulations governing the acceptance and transportation of animals. It is strongly recommended that you contact the consulate, embassy, or government authority for any country (or countries) you will be visiting to ensure that you have met all entrance requirements.
  • Space for pet travel is limited. Please call before you travel to ensure that your animal friend will be able to travel with you.
  • Pets may not be able to travel in the cabin of the aircraft on select routes.

If you are unable to travel with your pet

MEA does not list any immediate options for pets travelling unaccompanied. However, as a member of the SkyTeam alliance they may feature SkyTeam Cargo's Variation® Live program, which was designed specifically to meet the needs of animals in transit. Please contact a service agent to determine what options may be available to you.

Codeshare flights

Pets may not be accepted on flights operated by codeshare partners. It is strongly recommended that you contact any codeshare partners or any other airlines you may be travelling with to familiarize yourself with their individual policies regarding pet travel.
