There are several airlines that allow flying with a pet onboard (i.e. Iberia, Vueling). It is up to the company to establish regulations and additional tariffs. Therefore we advise you to get in contact with the specific airline you plan to use. In most of the cases the pet shall not weight more than 10kg (together with a carriage), shall be vaccinated and microchiped.
The general rule is that pets (together with their crate) which remain below a certain weight may be carried in the cabin, whereas pets exceeding such threshold weight must be carried in the cargo area.
What's required to keep the pet in a given country?
You will need to have a microchip or other approved type of identification on their bodies, a valid rabies vaccine, a health inspection certified by an official veterinarian and certified copies of the identification and vaccination documents.
