Pegasus Airlines Pet Policy
If you're planning to travel with your furry friend, it's important to know the pet policy of the airline you're flying with. Pegasus Airlines understands the importance of keeping your pet safe and comfortable during the journey, and they have specific guidelines in place to ensure a smooth travel experience for both you and your pet.
To book your pet's spot on board, you should call the Pegasus Call Center at 0888-228-12-12 as soon as your travel plans are confirmed. This will allow you to secure a reservation for your pet and ensure that there is space available for them on the flight.
In the cabin, Pegasus Airlines allows cats, dogs, and household birds to travel with their owners. The combined weight of the pet and carrier should not exceed 17 lbs (8 kg). It's important to note that pets must be healthy, non-threatening, clean, and free of odor to qualify for travel in the cabin. There is a fee of 60 TRY for pets traveling in the cabin.
If the combined weight of the pet and carrier exceeds 17 lbs (8 kg), pets can be transported in the ventilated cargo compartment of the aircraft. Medium-sized pets weighing between 17-33 lbs (8-15 kg) are considered medium, while pets weighing over 33 lbs are considered large. Just like in the cabin, pets must meet the same health and cleanliness requirements. The fee for transporting medium pets as checked baggage is 120 TRY, while the fee for large pets is 180 TRY.
For both cabin and checked baggage travel, there are specific requirements for carriers. Carriers must not exceed 21" x 15" x 8" (55 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm) in size. The carrier must have proper ventilation on three sides, be made of easily portable material, and have enough room for the animal to move around comfortably. It must also be clean, disinfected, and sterilized. In addition, carriers must have locks made of iron that are strong and secured.
It's important to note that Pegasus Airlines has certain restrictions and limitations on the types of pets allowed on their flights. Wild, predatory, and fighter dogs and birds are not permitted. Kangal dogs are only allowed until they are 6 months old. Additionally, specific breeds such as American Pit Bull, American Staffordshire Terrier, Boxer, Bulldog, Caucasian, Chow, Doberman, Dogo Argentinos, Fila Brazileiro, Japanese Tosa, Mastiff, Mastino Napoletano, Pit Bull Terrier, Presa Canario, and Rottweiler are not allowed to fly with Pegasus.
Keep in mind that air carriers can change these policies at any time, so you should always check directly with Pegasus Airlines before you book for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
