“Aeroflot” has launched testing of the service of transporting animals in a container on a nearby passenger seat

On December 22, Aeroflot started testing the service of transporting animals in a container on the adjacent passenger seat (in any class of service: Economy, Comfort, Business). At the initial stage, the service will be available on the airline’s own flights until March 20, 2024, after which the airline will decide whether to extend the service on a permanent basis.

Aeroflot explained the conditions for transporting animals in a container on the next seat in the plane cabin:

  • payment according to the tariff for an adult passenger;

  • the weight of the container together with the animal is 15 kg;

  • maximum dimensions of a rigid container – 50x30x30 cm;

  • one passenger can transport one container with an animal or bird in any class of service;

  • the container can be placed only near the porthole, and the pet will have to sit in the carry-on for the entire flight;

  • carrying “must allow the animal or bird to stand up to its full height and turn around”.
