Travelling With Pets
If you are flying from the UK to Malaga Airport with your pet, you will need a pet passport from your vet. Certain airlines and airports in the UK will allow you to take pets but none allow them in the cabin. Instead, and unlike other European airlines and airports, your pet will have to go into the baggage hold. Click on the UK Government website here to find out which airlines and UK airports transport pets.
If you are travelling with a guide dog or an assistance dog, it might be able to board with the passenger without any additional charge. Your pet must be properly equipped with muzzle, collar and lead. You will also need an official hardcopy certificate qualifying your pet by Assistance Dogs International (ADI) or the International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF).
If the dog is going to travel in the cabin, it will be placed next to the passenger in a place indicated by the crew. In this event, we recommend that you notify the airline a minimum of 48 hours in advance.
Please also check that you have all the correct vaccinations, microchip and necessary paperwork from your airline before you travel.
