The Air France pet policy is as follows:
Pets may be transported in the cabin, in the hold, or by air freight.
In certain cases, your pet cannot travel with you in the cabin or in the hold. It must be transported by freight if: the animal and its container weigh more than 75 kg / 165 lb.; or it is traveling to a country that authorizes animal transport only by freight.
Snub-nosed dogs and cats, such as Boxers, Pekingese, Shih Tzus and Persian or Burmese cats, are permitted for transport by freight on flights provided by Air France.
From 15 July 2019: Pug, Bulldog and Boston Terrier snub-nosed dog breeds are no longer permitted for transport by freight.
Category 1 dogs, as defined by the French Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, are not permitted for transport in the cabin, or as baggage or cargo. These so-called “attack dogs” do not belong to a particular breed but are similar in morphology to the following: Staffordshire Terrier or American Staffordshire Terriers (pit bulls), Mastiffs and Tosas.
Category 2-defined dogs are permitted for transport on cargo flights provided by Air France. These include the following breeds: pedigree Staffordshire Terriers, pedigree American Staffordshire Terriers, pedigree Tosas and dogs that are similar in morphology to the Rottweiler breed (with or without pedigree).
Taking a pet to a foreign country involves preparation and planning far in advance of your departure date. Requirements for pet travel to a foreign country are set by the destination country. If you are you traveling to another country and bringing along your pet you’ll need to meet the animal health requirements of the country you are visiting.
