Hi, I want to bring my cat across from Stansted to Derry. It's a large male Syberian Tiger. He's 285kg and nearly 6 foot long. Don't worry about that, Tigger will be heavily sedated for the journey. If there are no delays, we won't have any problems. For safety reasons I will be traveling on an earlier flight, but hope to meet him in the arrivals lounge. If I don't have to pay by the kilo, we can make this happen. Thanks for your help.

RyanAir does not transport live animals of any sort. However, many other airlines do.

RyanAir does not transport pets of any kind, but most airlines will transport them as checked baggage in the cargo hold. Find another airline that serves your route (do not change airlines - airplanes, OK - airlines NO) If you are traveling with your guinea pig, then contact their reservations for the cost.

We are not an airline; we assist people flying with pets. You may consider hiring an agent for this transport. (the airline may require it anyway). You can find one at

Why not find a fair solution for pet owners? It can only do good for Ryanair ´s image

I have a kitten. Four weeks old without a mother. How long until she would be able to fly? The flight will be four hours to Tenerife.
Posted on 2014-06-05 10:27:49.0
Hi Shannen - You don't mention what country you are entering Terife from. As Tenerife is a island of Spain, your kitten will not be able to enter until it is microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies (3 months) then a 21 day wait if you are entering from another EU country or a rabies controlled country. If you are entering from a high-rabies country, then a 30 day wait after the vaccination then a Blood Titer test. Assuming acceptable results, your kitten can enter Tenerife 90 days after the date the blood was drawn. You will also need an Annex II form for Spain issued 10 days prior to entry by your vet or an EU pet passport.

i have a parrot and i want to travel with me from paphos to thessaloniki ho much it will cost??
Posted on 2014-06-12 18:16:41.0
Agree with you. Ryan Air has great routes, too. Not too many airlines do not carry pets and it certainly would make good addition to the bottom line.

How much is it to transport a small dog Raynair to 6 kg , and how must be the size of the crate so that it can be carried on board ? Anyone Know ?
Posted on 2014-06-24 01:38:31.0
Can you advise on best way to bring a 4kg cat from Romania to Northern Ireland or Ireland (from there i can take it by car or bus)? I see neither British Airways nor Ryanair won't accept small pets as cabin baggage... Thank you.

Stefan - there is no commercial airline that will transport a pet into the UK in the cabin. You can investigate a pet friendly ferry as an alternative.

Veronika - Ryan Air will not transport pets at all. What cities are you traveling from and to?

Posted on 2014-07-11 23:12:30.0
Daoine - try contacting Aer Lingus or British Airways for the cost information as the cost will vary according to size. They also may require an agent to book.

im on holiday and fell in love with a puppy and purchased her. im meant to fly with ryanair next week monday to the uk. but just found out that they supposedly dont allow pets on their flights. what should i do?
Posted on 2014-08-19 20:27:08.0
Janney - you will not be able to bring an puppy into the UK without a microchip and rabies vaccination and a titer test (depending on what country you are entering the UK from). If you are entering from the US or Canada, it will take 21 days after the microchip is implanted and the vaccination is given to enter the UK. Your pet must be 3 months old before the vaccination is given. You will also need an Annex II form for the UK. You can find the details here:

Michelle - thanks for your comments. We wish Ryan Air would accepts period. They have sweet routes and would benefit many traveling pets....

I am a little bit confused....I have just read that Ryanair does not allow small pets and dogs in the cabin, but i was travelling sometime ago with Ryanair and i did see a woman with a little dog on her lap in the is it possible then? Do you or do you not allow dogs on board? Many thanks

Hi, Could you please clarify if we can travel with a small dog from London UK to Poland, Gdansk by Ryan Air? Thank you.
Posted on 2014-09-10 21:44:33.0
Hello Lesya - Ryan Air does not accept pets either in the cabin or as cargo. You can try LOT, SAS or Lufthansa. They fly the route with only one stop.
Posted on 2014-09-13 15:43:53.0
Malgorzata - most likely the dog was traveling as a service or comfort animal.
