Depending on the size, weight, and destination of the pet, guests may bring their dogs and cats on board in the cargo hold or cabin according to Lufthansa airlines pet policy. Pets travelling in cabins must weigh less than 8 kilogrammes (including the carrier) and fit beneath the passenger's seat in front. Depending on the kind of aircraft, there are weight and size restrictions for cargo pets. Specific requirements must be met by pet carriers in terms of durability, size, and ventilation. Because there are a limited number of spots available on each trip and pet transportation is subject to surcharges, travellers travelling with pets on Lufthansa must make reservations in advance. Depending on the location, passengers should also go over the necessary paperwork for their pet's journey, including health certifications and immunisation records.
