Saudia Airlines Pet Policy
Saudia Airlines understands that pets are an important part of many travelers' lives and offers various options for passengers who wish to travel with their furry friends. It is important to note that air carriers can change their pet policies at any time, so it is recommended to check directly with Saudia Airlines for the most accurate and up-to-date information before booking your flight.
If you are planning to bring your small cat with you in the cabin, Saudia Airlines allows it as long as the combined weight of the pet and carrier does not exceed 11 lbs (5 kg). Each passenger is permitted to travel with one pet in a carrier. Please keep in mind that there is a fee for this service, which is charged at twice the excess baggage price of the final destination. For example, if you are flying from the USA to Guanzhou, China, the pet fee for one way would be $250, and the same amount would apply for a round trip journey. However, if you are traveling from the USA to Saudi Arabia, the pet fee for one way would be $150.
For those who prefer to have their dogs travel in the checked baggage area, Saudia Airlines allows it if the aircraft you are traveling on is equipped with appropriate ventilation. Similar to pets in the cabin, there is a fee for this service, which is charged at twice the excess baggage price of the final destination. The regular excess baggage charges will apply in addition to the regular pet charges for pets larger than the specified cage dimensions. It is important to ensure that your pet's temporary home meets the required dimensions of 21" x 13" x 16" (52.5 cm x 32.5 cm x 40 cm) and has adequate ventilation and is leak-proof.
It is worth mentioning that Saudi Arabia allows the entry of hunting, guard, seeing-eye, and hearing dogs for blind and deaf passengers only. Additionally, cats are allowed with the appropriate documentation.
