Oman Air Pet Policy

While traveling on airlines, you ensure before boarding a plane or while checking in whether the luggage carrying capacity has not been exceeded or you are carrying your tickets (which you have booked) and passports; also, there is a separate procedure to book a ticket. Similarly, if you are taking a pet along with you, there is a procedure, documentation process, and policy at Oman airlines which is mentioned below:

  • One must fill "Live Animal Transport Request."
  • Produce the documents that are essential to get an allowance for your pet, which are veterinary certificates, permits, etc.
  • Your pet cannot fly in the cabin along with you.
  • Cats and also dogs are the ones who are permitted to travel in Oman Air. (Maximum two animals are allowed per person.)
  • Your pets can fly as checked baggage or air cargo in the cargo section. (on the basis of rules and regulations of Oman Airlines and the destination country.)
  • Inform Oman Air 48 hours before your scheduled flight about the pet you're carrying.
  • Produce the Health Certificate to Oman Air, and this certificate must not be old than 10 days from your traveling date.
  • A pet must be in a pet crate. (If a pet is traveling in the cargo section.)
  • The weight of a pet and its carrier should be 75 kg (165lbs), and the crate's size should be 115 inches or 292 cm. (if your pet is flying as checked baggage.) if the limit exceeds, then it should travel as air cargo.
  • You must check in 4 hours before your scheduled flight at the airport
