Which Asian Airlines Allow Dogs in the Cabin in 2022?

The easiest way to get around Asia, including travelling to and from the region, is by flying. However, if you’re travelling with a dog, things are harder.

Unlike in Europe and the Americas, the majority of airlines don’t allow pet dogs to fly in the cabin. Most airlines only permit dogs to fly in the hold, either as checked luggage or as cargo, if at all.

To find out what Asian airlines allow dogs in the cabin, plus an overview of the pet policies of 41 major Asian airlines, including those in the Middle East, read on…

Asian Airlines That Allow Dogs in Cabin

Do Any Asian Airlines Allow Pets in the Cabin?

Below, I’ve summarised the pet policies of 40 major Asian airlines, including whether they allow pets to fly in the cabin. However, you’ll quickly notice that nearly all these airlines don’t allow pets to fly in the cabin.

To save you from scrolling, here are the few major Asian airlines that allow pets to travel in the cabin:

On most of these airlines, the maximum weight limit for your dog or cat and their carrier bag is a total of 7kg, lower than the most common weight limit of 8kg in Europe. This applies on Asiana Airlines, Korean Air and Royal Jordanian.

Air India has a lower weight limit again, with a maximum weight of 5kg. Note that this needs to include the carrier bag, too, which will likely weigh at least 1kg. On the other hand, Etithad Airways has a more generous 8kg weight limit, while El Al Airlines has a 9kg weight limit.

Note that Vietnam Airlines used to allow pets in the cabin, but this has not been permitted since April 2020. This is no date yet for when they will again allow pets in the cabin, if at all.

What is the Most Pet-Friendly Asian Airline?

When reviewing the pet policies of these Asian airlines, one airline in particular stood out as the most pet-friendly, Etihad Airways.

Etihad Airways only recently started to allow pets in the cabin, but they have a very generous policy. As well as the highest weight limit of any Asian airline, 8kg, they also allow the option to purchase the adjacent seat.

Purchasing the adjacent seat is optional in Economy class, but compulsory to fly with a pet in the cabin in Business or First class. If purchasing the adjacent seat, the weight limit remains the same but the maximum carrier dimensions are far greater, with a maximum height of 50cm.

Note that Etihad isn’t particularly pet-friendly for larger pets, who need to fly as cargo.

Do Any Asian Airlines Allow Pets as Checked Baggage?

While most Asian airlines don’t allow pets to travel in the cabin, a large number do allow pets to travel as checked baggage. Out of the 41 airlines listed below, 26 allows pets to travel as checked baggage. The remaining airlines allow fly pets as cargo or not at all.

The advantage of flying pets as checked baggage rather than as cargo is that you can drop-0ff and pick-up your pet in the regular passenger terminal, rather than at the freight terminal. Plus, prices are typically lower than for cargo.

If flying your pets as checked baggage, you’ll pick them up afterwards in the regular passenger terminal

Note, however, there are some destinations in Asia that only permit pets to arrive on flights as cargo, such as Brunei, Dubai and Hong Kong. This also applies on flights to Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Larger dogs who exceed the weight limits (when in their crate) for checked baggage may also need to fly as cargo.

And here’s the key details of the pet policies of all the major Asian airlines…

Air Arabia (UAE)

Pets Allowed in the Cabin? No

Only falcons are permitted to be flown in the cabin on Air Arabia flights, as long as certain conditions are met.

See: https://www.airarabia.com/en/animals-and-pets

Air China (China)

Pets Allowed in the Cabin? No

Air China permits the carriage of small pets as excess baggage, with a maximum weight limit including the carrier of 32kg. Only a single container is permitted per flight, containing only a single animal. The pet will be charged according to the special baggage fee standards.

Larger animals are accepted only as cargo. There is also a long list of breeds that are not permitted to fly, mainly aggressive and snub-nosed breeds.

See: https://www.airchina.com.au/AU/GB/info/assistance/pets.html

Air India (India)

Pets Allowed in the Cabin? Yes

On domestic and international flights, Air India will transport pets in both the cabin and in the hold, whether as excess baggage or cargo. A maximum of two animals are permitted per flight, including service animals. 

For pets flying in the cabin, there is a maximum weight of 5kg, including the carrier. Passengers with pets will be seated in the last row. Larger pets are only permitted in the hold.

There are some flights where the carriage of pets is not currently possible, either in the cabin or in the hold, including non-stop flights to and from the USA, any flights to Germany or the UK, and ultra long haul flights. Double check these latest exceptions on the Air India website.

Flying with pets in the cabin on Air India is also not a dog-friendly experience. Those who have flown their dogs with Air India report that the final approval is up to the captain, with approval often not given until the last minute, a stressful process for everyone involved. Dogs are also required to be muzzled even inside the carrier.

Additionally, if flying internationally, it is only possible to import/export pets from India at six airports: Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai.
