Carriage of animals on flights to Sweden

In addition to our existing regulations for carriage of animals on our flights, please note that for entry into Sweden the pet must:

  • be ID marked / microchipped
  • be accompanied by a pet owner’s declaration
  • have a valid rabies vaccination
  • be accompanied by documentation proving that it has passed a rabies antibody blood test. The blood test must be taken at least 30 days after the rabies vaccination is administered and at least three months before the animal enters the country.
  • the pet must be checked at an Entry Point upon arrival in Sweden

Please note that if the pet travels within five days before or after the date on which the passenger is traveling, the pet must also be accompanied by a copy of the passenger’s ticket / travel reservation.

Detailed information can be found on the Swedish Board of Agriculture’s official website.

Carriage of animals on flights to the United Kingdom

According to current regulations, we are not able to carry pets to the United Kingdom on our flights – whether it is in the cabin or in the cargo hold. Please click here to read the approved routes and other details regarding traveling to the UK with pets.

Traveling with pets

Please make your special booking for animal transportation as soon as possible, but not later than 3 working days before departure. To do so, please call our Customer Service Center.
Import regulations, customs documents, veterinary health certificates, inoculations, customs specifications for foreign countries etc. are all the responsibility of the passenger. Please contact the Foreign Embassy of the country you are visiting for information on import requirements, e.g. for inoculations and identification.
Animals may only travel if accompanied by a passenger, and must be registered. Please observe the relevant entry conditions.

Animal passport

Animal passports have been a legal requirement since 1st October 2004. Anyone wishing to take a dog or cat abroad will need the blue EU document for their four-legged friend. It is valid in all member states of the European Union, and confirms that the animal has been inoculated against rabies. The international certificate of inoculation previously issued will apply for twelve months from issue.
For further information please contact your veterinarian or the Federal Department for Nutrition and Agriculture.
