Singapore Airline

Singapore Airlines is the flag carrier airline of Singapore, currently offering passenger service to more than 60 cities in over 30 countries around the globe. They are also a proud member of Star Alliance, the world's largest airline network.

Singapore Airlines does not offer the option of transporting pets in the cabin of any of their aircraft. However, they do offer the options of carrying pets either as checked baggage in the cargo hold of the aircraft (accompanied) or as manifest cargo (unaccompanied). It is worth noting that pets are not accepted on all flights, as some aircraft in their fleet are not equipped to carry live animals. If you are planning to travel with your pet, they recommend contacting them at least 2 weeks before you plan to travel to ensure that they can accommodate you and your animal companion. When you call please be prepared to provide the Reservations agent with information about your pet (Type of pet, gender, name, age, weight of carrier and pet, dimensions of carrier, etc).

Pets and carriers are not included in your baggage allowance: they are considered excess baggage and will be charged accordingly.

CARRIER SIZE Singapore Airlines does not accept pets in the cabin of any of their aircraft. Carrier size will depend on the size of your pet.
CARRIER WEIGHT N/A Weight will vary depending on the size and weight of your pet and the carrier.
