The Alitalia Airlines pet policy is as follows:
Pets — cats, dogs and ferrets — are accepted in the aircraft cabin and in the aircraft hold.
Due to structural constraints, pets in cabin service may not be available on all aircrafts in every class.
Brachycephalic races or snub nose, are particularly susceptible to stress and temperature. To ensure the wellness and safety of your pet, we suggest you to evaluate carefully the overall health of your pet and consequently to assess the risks associated with this type of transport.
Pets that are younger than three months cannot travel.
No pets can travel to the United Kingdom or Ireland.
In order to prevent the spread of avian (bird) flu, the EU and the Ministry of Health have placed a total ban on the importation of birds from Asia, Turkey, Russia, South Africa, Romania and the Balkan Peninsula.
When travelling to South Africa, animals cannot be transported in the cabin and hold, only with the Cargo service. For flights departing from South Africa, animals can travel in the cabin, with a maximum allowed weight of 7 kg including the transporter. If the weight exceeds this amount, transportation should take place via the Cargo service.
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.
