Lot Polish Airlines Pet Policy
Lot Polish Airlines welcomes pets on select flights, allowing small cats and dogs to travel in the cabin with their owners. However, it's important to note that LOT only takes a limited number of pets in the cabin, so it's recommended to make reservations for your pet as soon as possible. You can do this by calling their Contact Center at (+48) 22-577-77-55. In the event that the limit is reached, LOT may refuse your pet's travel.
If your pet meets the requirements, they can accompany you in the cabin as long as the combined weight of the pet and carrier does not exceed 17 lbs (8 kg). During the flight, your furry friend must remain inside their carrier, which should be placed underneath the seat in front of you. The fees for this service vary depending on your destination: domestic flights cost 12 EUR, flights to Europe and the Middle East cost 50 EUR, and flights to the USA, Canada, China, and Japan cost 70 EUR.
In case your pet exceeds the weight limit for cabin transport, LOT provides the option to transport them as checked baggage in the hold. Your pet must be able to fit comfortably in a carrier, so it's important to inform your LOT booking agent about the size of your pet's carrier when making your reservation. The fees for this service also vary depending on your destination: domestic flights incur a charge of 280 PLN, flights to Europe and the Middle East incur a charge of 150 EUR, and flights to the USA, Canada, China, and Japan incur a charge of 290 EUR.
If your pet does not meet the requirements for cabin or checked baggage transport, you can consider transporting them as cargo. Fees for this service depend on the size of the pet's carrier, the weight of the animal, and the route. To find out more about the cargo service, you can contact LOT at (+48) 22-606-77-77 or (+48) 22-606 80-88.
It's important to ensure that your pet's carrier meets the allowed weights and dimensions. For pets traveling in the cabin, carriers must not exceed 21" x 15" x 8" (55 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm) or 17" x 12" x 8" (45 cm x 30 x 20 cm). The carrier should be spacious enough to allow the animal to move freely, stand, turn around, and lie down comfortably. LOT requires carriers to be clean, tight, securely closed, and the bottom to be lined with absorbent material from the inside.
For pets traveling in the hold, carriers must not exceed 49" x 38" x 18" (125 cm x 96 cm x 64 cm). They should be labeled with a relevant sticker, fitted with a water and food container inside, and ventilated on at least three sides. Carriers in the hold should be made of fiberglass, metal, rigid plastic, or solid wood.
It's important to keep in mind that air carriers can change these policies at any time, so you should always check directly with Lot Polish Airlines before you book for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
