Malaysia Airlines Pet Policy

Malaysia Airlines understands that pets are an important part of many travelers' lives and they strive to make the journey as comfortable as possible for both pets and their owners. Here is everything you need to know about Malaysia Airlines' pet policy.

Pets such as dogs, cats, and household birds are permitted to fly as checked baggage on Malaysia Airlines. However, there are certain requirements that need to be met. Firstly, the pets must be carried in an appropriate carrier that allows them to stand up, turn around, and lie down comfortably. Additionally, valid health and vaccination certificates, entry permits, and other documents required by countries of entry must be provided.

The maximum combined weight of the animals and their carriers should not exceed 55 lbs (25 kg) to be accepted on board. It is important to note that pets are charged as excess baggage and the price varies depending on the weight of your animal and your travel destination. The pet fee is calculated per kilogram, with a minimum charge of 5 kg. The cost can range between $8 and $40 per kilogram.
