What kind of travel container should I have for my pet?

The container must have ventilation openings, must also be of an adequate size, suitable design and of sufficient strength to prevent escape. For the animal’s wellbeing Qatar Airways reserves the right to refuse carriage for any animal if the container is too small.

You must supply food and water for the animal in the travelling container or kennel.


Per the diagram above, a suitable container for your pet would fit the following minimum measurements:

Length of container = Length of the animal + ½ the length of their legs
Height of container = Height of the animal
Width of container = Width of the animal’s shoulders x 2
