Looking For Lufthansa Pet Travel Advice? Get in touch with our expert team today.

We use Lufthansa from Heathrow via their main hub in Frankfurt, where we then have access to more than 300 worldwide destinations with this efficient airline. They will tranship to any destination that permits them to land dogs and cats.

All pets must have a rabies vaccination at least 21 days prior to transiting in Frankfurt.

They are a great airline for snub nosed dogs and Persians as they will carry these providing temperatures are below 27 degrees at origin, transit stop and destination.

Lufthansa have been carrying pets safely for over 30 years and the transit lounge in Frankfurt is amongst the most advanced in the world. Pet dogs and cats get to come out of their crates and relieve themselves during the journey and are fed if they have a long break between flights. This is an airline we have great faith in with an excellent record in animal welfare and use frequently with the utmost confidence in the service they provide for us.
