Chinese airline allows pet to travel


Good news for pet owners in China. Local airline has now made it possible for pets to travel with their owners under specific conditions.

Hainan Airlines is the first in China that has considered the dilemma of all animal owners who think twice before taking a long vacation worrying about their fur babies home alone and miserable.

The new pet policy was recently announced in a Weibo post where the airline also set a few restrictions. 

According to the airline, one passenger is limited to carry only two animals and the combined weight of one animal and the container should not surpass five kilograms.

 Pregnant pets or those that have given birth within the past 48 hours will not be allowed on board. 

Pets not older than six months will also not be permitted to fly.

They have also issued precise dimensions of the cage which should be placed under the seat and should not go over the size of 35cm (length) x 28cm (width) x 24cm (height). 

The pets are required to stay in their cages during the entirety of the flight in order to not disturb any passengers. 

The owners are prohibited to carry any food or water for their pets and are also required to make their pets wear masks to prevent noise and diapers to avoid accidents.

Pet owners considering to make use of this policy are required to apply directly with the Hainan ticketing office at least 24 hours before where they will be asked to pay a fee of 800 Chinese Yuan equaling to an approximate of 125 USD. They will also be asked to present some documents from Animal Quarantine Certificate of Conformity that is issued by Animal Health Supervision and evidence of the animal being vaccinated.
