Traveling with your pets

Keep dog or cat close to you. During the flight, your pet will be comfortable in the carrier at your feet, in front of your seat.

Dogs and cats older than 12 weeks are welcome on our flights.

Your pet will not need a plane ticket like you, but you must give us notice if you plan to travel with them. If you book your ticket online, you can announce your pet and submit a request by calling the Contact Centre or in one of our branches or authorized travel agencies. If you buy a ticket through the Contact Centre or at a branch office, you can submit a request for pet transport while you are buying the ticket.

When booking the service, you will inform us about the type of animal (dog or cat), the weight of the pet together with the carrier (maximum 8 kg), and the dimensions of the carrier (maximum sum of dimensions 94 cm).

The number of pets is limited on our flights and their transport must therefore be confirmed before the start of the trip by Air Serbia, and by other airlines if they are indicated on your ticket.

When traveling with a pet, your seat on the flight must be confirmed. Unaccompanied children may not travel with a pet.
