Petition Let airlines allow pets in the airplane’s cabin to and from the UK
Change the rules on animal travel so they can travel with their owners (with all the documentation and vaccines in order) inside airplane cabins instead of in the hold with luggage.
It is allowed in many other countries around the world, including in the EU, South America, and the USA.
Pets are often seen as an extension of the family. Many airlines allow pets up to 9kg to travel to most countries inside the airplane cabin, in their pet carrier, instead of in the cargo hold.
However, they are not allowed on commercial flights coming to the UK, regardless of their size.
This can not only distress the pets and owners, but can also risk their health and safety. There are cases of pets that are treated as manifest cargo being killed, injured or lost.
