Fly your pets with ANA

ANA provides assistance for customers traveling with a much loved pet. ANA accepts carriage of dogs, cats, birds and other small animals such as rabbits, hamsters and ferrets. You must prepare a suitable container for your pet to travel in. In principle, only one animal or one pair of birds (male-female) may be allowed in one container. Total linear dimensions per container (cage) exceeding 292 cm (115 in.) or total weight of pet and container (cage) over 45 kg (100 lb.) will not be accepted.

Service dogs

Disabled passengers can travel together with service dogs under “animal in cabin” service. For further information and details (such as limitation per flight, fees, etc.), please contact your local ANA International Reservation and Information Center.

Health, breed and age restrictions

The check-in of short-nosed dog breeds is suspended during the summer period (June 1 – September 30)*. This is because they are more susceptible to heatstroke and respiratory difficulties compared to other breeds, and are more affected by higher temperatures.

* From 2018 onward, the period for which the handling of short-nosed dogs is suspended will change to May 1 – October 31.

(Breeds which are not one of below, even similar names, are accepted.) Even when traveling outside of this period, please take notice of the days when the temperature is high as it may affect the physical condition of your pet.
