Specifications of pet aviation cage

 

Pet transport cages must meet specifications approved by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) before they can be accepted by airlines. Airlines require pet carriers to have enough space for your pet to stand up, enough space for your pet to turn around, and provide a comfortable transportation environment.

 

Materials and design used in pet transport cages

According to relevant regulations, pet aviation cages must be made of fiberglass or sterilized solid wood, with stainless steel mesh and plastic switches for the cage door. In addition, the pet transport cage should be separated into two layers on the bottom, and the upper and lower layers need space for ventilation. There also need to be two bowls in the cage, one for water and the other for food. Please see the pet airline cage below. In addition, if you choose to let your pet fly with you and plan to put your pet in the cabin, you will need to prepare a pet transport bag. Airlines generally require that its width cannot exceed 50cm, and its weight cannot exceed 8kg.

 

How to help your pet adapt to the environment in the pet transport cage as soon as possible?

First of all, if your pet is entering a pet cage for the first time, your pet will definitely not like being in a cage. Our professional team recommends putting food or your pet’s favorite toys into the cage, and then allowing your pet to come and go freely to retrieve food and toys. Repeat this action over the next few days to allow your pet to slowly adapt to the cage and temporary life inside it. When you feel that your pet is no longer resisting life in the cage, you can close the door for a few minutes and then let the pet out immediately. Continue to repeat this action for several days, and gradually lengthen the time by a few minutes until he calms down after entering the cage. You are already halfway successful.

Can some debris be placed inside the pet transport cage?

In addition to two bowls, one for water and one for food, airlines do not recommend that you put anything else in the cage, such as pet toys, felts, pillows or other items. But generally airlines allow you to stick a small amount of dog food and a dog collar or rope on the top of the cage.

Can my pet be clothed or collared before boarding?

Airlines do not allow pets to wear clothes or collars, because there have been cases where dogs wandered around in the cage and got tangled in the rope, causing accidents. In fact, dogs don’t have to worry about feeling uncomfortable if the temperature in the warehouse is too low, because there are places in the warehouse specifically for placing pet transport cages, and the temperature and lighting in these places will be suitable for pets.
