Traveling Worldwide with your pet — 609 Comments

  1. Allison – it is best not to have layovers if at all possible. It appears that your dog is flying in the cabin with you. The best airport is the one where you can fly in and out on the same airline, otherwise you will need to clear customs and your pup will need to enter the country. The route is more important than which airport you layover at. We are not aware of any Asian airport with pet relief stations; however, we are not located in Asia. Perhaps another pet traveler can weigh in.

  2. I am taking my dog from California to Thailand. What are the best airports to have layovers in in Asia? What airports in Asia have pet relief stations?

  3. Yumi – you and your dog will stay in the secure area of the airport until you board your next flight on Asiana. Do not clear customs. No documentation should be required.

  4. Hi, Admin
    I am going to Bangkok with my dog by Asiana in cabin (from Vancouver) but I have 5 hrs 40 m layover at the Incheon Airport.
    Do I have to get a transit permit or anything? Please help.

    Thank you

  5. Lia – you will need to check your dogs in at Air New Zealand’s cargo facility at Narita for the flight to Auckland. You can contact their international cargo facilities in NZ at CSBookings@airnz.co.nz or you can contact their cargo offices in Japan at +813 5521 2738.

  6. Hi, my two dogs will be flying from Narita to Auckland on Air NZ, and I was just wondering if anyone knows the exact procedure for what to do at Narita.
    Where do we take them after the AQS quarantine health inspection? I won’t be on the same flight, so are they “checked in” at the Air NZ counters, or another special area for pets? Will Air NZ cargo staff be looking after them until boarding, and will we be able to stay with them?

    I hope perhaps someone will be able to answer these questions, thank you!
