Special rules apply to travel with guide dogs for persons with visual and/or hearing impairment
A trained guide dog for persons with visual and/or hearing impairment will travel free of charge.
The number of dogs traveling on our flights is limited and their transport is therefore subject to prior Air Serbia approval and the approval of other airlines (besides Air Serbia) indicated on your ticket (if any).
We will need advance notice at the time of booking that you will be traveling with a guide dog and the breed and weight of your dog. You will be required to have a confirmed seat reservation.
At check-in you will be asked to present a valid certificate issued by the competent institution that your dog has passed the required training for guiding persons with visual and/or hearing impairments.
Please arrive at the passenger check-in desk at least two hours before the flight to allow for formalities.
