Singapore Airlines Pet Policy

Unfortunately, Singapore Airlines does not accept animals to travel in the cabin on any of their flights. However, your pet can travel with you on the same flight as checked baggage, as long as it's at least 3 months old.

The combined weight of your pet and carrier should be under 70 lbs (32 kg) to qualify for transport as checked baggage with Singapore Air. If you have more than one pet traveling with you, they must be housed in separate carriers. Puppies or kittens from the same litter may occupy the same carrier if they're 3 months or older and have a combined weight less than 30 lbs (14 kg). A maximum of 2 puppies or kittens are allowed in each carrier.

The fee for transporting pets as checked baggage is calculated based on the weight of your pet and your travel plans. For journeys to/from the US, the fee ranges between $150-225, and for trips elsewhere, the fee is between $50-120.

Guidance, Tips, & info on Airlines and Airports

When traveling in the hold, carriers must not exceed certain dimensions depending on the aircraft type. For A330 aircraft, carriers must not exceed 22" H (56 cm), for B777 aircraft, carriers must not exceed 40" H (101 cm), for A380 aircraft, carriers must not exceed 23" H (60 cm), and for A350 aircraft, carriers must not exceed 30" H (76 cm).

Carriers must be of the right size to provide enough space for your pet to turn around while standing, sit erect, and lie in a natural position. They must also be well ventilated on at least 3 sides, with the majority of the ventilation on the upper part of the carrier. Additionally, carriers must come with food and water containers fixed inside the carrier or accessible for replenishment from outside, and be leak and escape-proof.

There are certain restrictions and limitations to consider. Singapore Airlines does not accept the following breeds of dogs as checked baggage or cargo: Akita, Boerboel, Boxer, Brussels Griffon (Petit Brabancon), Chow Chow, Dogo Argentino, Bulldogs, Fila Brasileiro, Japanese Chin (Japanese Spaniels), Lhasa Apso, Mastiffs (including Neapolitan and Dogue de Bordeaux), Perro De Presa Canario, Pit Bull, Pugs (including Carlino, Mopshond, Mops Hund, and Pekingese), Shar-Pei, Shih Tzu, English Toy, King Charles and Tibetan Spaniels, Boston, and Pit Bull Terriers, and Tosa.

In addition, pets may not be transported as checked baggage on flights to/from Australia, Brunei, Denpasar, Bali, New Zealand, South Africa, Dubai, Hong Kong, Taipei, and the United Kingdom due to regulations.

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.
