Ensure that your dog is safe when travelling in the air with an IATA approved dog travel crate!
If you're transporting your dog via aeroplane, there is nothing more stressful than worrying about if it's safe and comfortable in its dog travel cage. Now, there's no need to experience any uneasiness - just browse our selection of suitable and approved dog transport crates. An important factor to remember before travelling with your dog is that their transport must be IATA approved. The IATA (International Air Transport Association) has a set of safety criteria to ensure safe travel for all pets in a dog travel cage. This means that you'll need a certain type of approved dog travel crate to allow your pet to travel comfortably with you.

Choosing the correct, approved dog travel crate for your pet is essential before air travel. Here are some of the requirements for IATA approved pet carriers.
Your dog must be able to turn around while standing, sit up straight and lie down in a natural position: all of the IATA approved pet carriers available from zooplus offer sizing charts, guidance on measuring your dog and suggestions on which crate size you might need depending on your pet’s breed.
It must be made of a strong material, so that your dog is unable to escape or that the crate can withstand damage if struck by other cargo: the dog carriers available at zooplus are made from strong, sturdy materials, with metal lids and doors that can withstand strain.
Food and water troughs must be available to your pet during the flight: just as you wouldn’t want to go without food or water on a flight, neither would your dog! Many also come with an integrated food and water bowl that can easily be attached to the bars at the front of the cage, so you can have peace of mind while your pet is travelling.
Here at zooplus we offer an extensive range of (IATA) Compliant Dog Crates, including options with integrated bedding.
