Ryanair Pet Policy

Ryanair is a popular low-cost airline that allows passengers to travel with their pets. If you are planning to fly with your furry friend, here is some important information about Ryanair's pet policy.

Ryanair only allows small dogs and cats to travel in the cabin with their owners. The maximum weight allowed for the pet and carrier combined is 8kg. Your pet must remain in a suitable carrier that fits under the seat in front of you throughout the flight. It's important to note that only a limited number of pets are allowed on each flight, so it's recommended to book early and inform the airline about your pet.

If your pet does not meet the requirements to travel in the cabin, Ryanair also offers the option to transport pets in the hold. However, this service is not available on all flights and there are certain restrictions and guidelines to follow. Pets traveling in the hold must be transported in an IATA-approved pet carrier and are subject to additional fees.

Guidance, Tips, & info on Airlines and Airports

Before traveling with your pet on Ryanair, it's essential to contact the airline directly to make a reservation for your pet and to confirm all the necessary details. 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.
