Passengers with animals - Montpellier Airport

+A -A

Subject to the laws in force in the country of destination and prior approval of the airline when booking, passengers can travel with their pets from Montpellier Mediterranée Airport.

As a precaution, you are advised to carry the animal’s health certificate and prepare its trip as early as possible, to meet the formalities.

When booking or buying your ticket, notify your airline or travel agency that you will be travelling with your pet.


  • In the cabin: pets weighing up to 4Kg are allowed, with prior authorization from the airline, in a soft-sided, closed carrier* (maximum dimensions 50 x 40 x 20 cm) allowing the animal to breathe; its head must not protrude from the carrier. Rigid cages and baskets are not allowed in the cabin.
  • In the hold: animals weighing over 4Kg must travel in a specially adapted cage, sold by the airlines. To make the animal’s journey as comfortable as possible, the hold is ventilated, pressurized and heated.

> NB: some airlines do not accept pets, apart from guide dogs.

> For more information, Montpellier Mediterranée Airport advises passengers to contact their airline or travel agent.



  • In the case of European Community air carriers, assistance dogs are allowed in the cabin on flights departing from airports in the European Union and Non-EU member countries, destined for the EU.
  • In principle this service is provided free of charge.
  • In some cases, airlines can still impose restrictions, depending on the destination and the number of passengers travelling with an assistance dog. Check with your airline!
