Traveling with pets in the passenger cabin

When traveling with your pet you can keep it with you during the flight. Your dog or cat will be right there, next to your feet under the seat, comfortably protected in the container you have brought with you.

The number of pets traveling on our flights is limited and transport of pets 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 about the type of pet you will be traveling with, the combined weight of pet and container, and the dimensions of the pet container. You will be required to have a confirmed seat reservation.

Please arrive at the passenger check-in desk at least two hours before the flight to allow for formalities.
