On Cathay Pacific, pets are not accepted in the aircraft cabin. Most pets can join you on board as check-in baggage, but some countries have certain restrictions when it comes to animals on aircraft. Unaccompanied pets or pets not acceptable as check-in baggage must be shipped through cargo. Cathay Pacific does not accept brachycephalic (snub-nosed, short snout or flat face) animals, including Brachycephalic dogs and cats, either as check-in baggage or cargo carriage. Certain dog breeds are not accepted.
