Royal Air Maroc Airlines Pet Policy
When planning to travel with your pet on Royal Air Maroc, there are specific guidelines to ensure a safe and comfortable journey for your furry friend. Small dogs, cats, and household birds are allowed in the cabin if the combined weight of your pet and the carrier does not exceed 11 lbs (5 kg). This makes Royal Air Maroc a friendly option for those with small pets, as more than one pet can share a carrier, given they are used to each other and fall within the weight restriction. Please note that the applicable fees vary based on your travel destination.
Pets that cannot be accommodated in the cabin due to size or weight limitations can travel as checked baggage. The maximum combined weight for a pet and its carrier for travel in the hold is 165 lbs (75 kg). Again, fees for this service are determined by the weight of your pet and carrier, and your travel plans. These rules ensure that even larger pets can travel comfortably and safely.
It's important to remember the required dimensions for carriers. For pets in the cabin, carriers should not exceed 21" x 15" x 8" (55 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm). For pets traveling as checked baggage, carriers must be robust, leak-proof, lockable, and provide adequate ventilation, allowing your pet to move comfortably within it. These measures aim to provide a secure and comfortable environment for your pet during the flight.
Despite the flexibility offered by Royal Air Maroc's pet policy, some restrictions apply. Pets are not permitted on flights to the UK, as well as on certain chartered flights operated by Qatar Airways. Pets are also not allowed on flights to and from Bilbao. In addition, certain snub-nosed breeds of cats and dogs are not accepted due to the potential health risks associated with air travel for these breeds. Emotional support dogs can travel for free with the necessary documentation, providing comfort for those who require their presence during travel.
Keep in mind that airlines can change these policies at any time, so it's important to verify this information directly with Royal Air Maroc before you book, for the most accurate and up-to-date details.
