The Emirates Airlines pet policy is as follows:
Animals are not permitted in the cabin of Emirates flights, with the exception of falcons between Dubai and certain destinations in Pakistan, and Guide Dogs for the Blind
For all itineraries connecting or terminating in Dubai, animals must be transported as cargo.
For itineraries that start in Dubai and travelling to countries that allow animals to enter as “excess baggage” (i.e., not as manifested cargo), falcons, cats, dogs and pet birds can be transported as checked baggage in the hold as long as the total journey time (including any transit time) is less than 17 hours, and all appropriate conditions are met.
For all routes, the charge for the animal(s) and container will depend on the weight and size of the animal plus cage combined.
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.
