Condor Airlines Pet Policy
Condor Airlines, recognized by its IATA Code DE, extends its warm welcome to pets, provided certain guidelines are met. The airline encourages pet owners to book their pet's journey as soon as possible to ensure a smooth travel experience. It's noteworthy to mention that transportation of pets may be denied at check-in if the pet carrier doesn't meet the IATA standards or if it's too small. For further details, Condor's Reservation Team is available for assistance and can be reached at 866-960-7915.
The privilege of enjoying the journey alongside their pets in the cabin is granted by Condor Airlines to cats and dogs on selected flights. This, however, is subject to the total weight of the pet and the carrier not exceeding 13 lbs (6 kg). The fee for this facility depends on the travel zone. For instance, travel in Zone 1 that includes countries like Spain, Italy, France, etc., costs $73.00. Zone 2 comprising of regions like Iceland, United Arab Emirates, Turkey among others, charges $91.00. While for Zones 3 to 5 that cover regions like USA, Canada, East Africa and more, the fee stands at $122.00.
For dogs exceeding the cabin's size limit, Condor offers the option to transport them in the hold instead. The fee for this service depends on the destination zone and the size of the carrier. A medium carrier, with maximum dimensions of 31" L x 21" W x 39" H, comes with varying charges for each zone - $97.00 for Zone 1, $134.00 for Zone 2 and $188.00 for Zones 3 to 5. Larger carriers, not exceeding 49" L x 29" W x 39" H, are priced at $188.00 for Zone 1, $255.00 for Zone 2 and $310.00 for Zones 3 to 5.
Guidelines for pet carriers stress on them being well-ventilated, waterproof and lockable. For cabin travel, carriers should not surpass 21" L x 15" W x 8" H in size and should include food and water containers. In terms of hold travel, carriers should be stable, clean and have a watertight base, with a size limit of 31" L x 21" W x 39" H or 49" L x 29" W x 39" H. In both cases, pets should have enough room to stand, turn around, and lie down comfortably.
It is important to note that certain breeds are generally not accepted for transportation by Condor, including the Pitbull Terrier, American Pitbull, Staffordshire Bullterrier, and several other breeds. Similarly, snub-nosed breeds of dogs and cats, including the Boston Terrier, Boxer, Bulldog, etc., are also not permitted. However, trained assistance dogs are allowed on all routes, subject to the rules of the respective country.
Keep in mind that air carriers can change these policies at any time, so you should always check directly with the airline you are traveling on, before you book, for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
