Different types of animals are transported on domestic and international routes daily, following high standards of care.
Aircrafts are designed to provide a safe, pressurized and temperature controlled environment for animals. All animals are transported in compliance with International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations for the humane treatment and transportation of animals, as well as those of other major international organizations.
Depending on the live animal you transport, you must provide a suitable container with food and water accessible. Containers should be properly marked and labeled, and must comply with all necessary documentation applicable at the points of origin, transit and destination for the particular animal shipped.
LAN CARGO also provides clients the access to caregivers who can travel onboard with the live animals. We suggest contacting your LAN CARGO local Office to make these arrangements and for details on the applicable fees.
If you need to ship pets, please visit the Pets section.
Shipments of live animals must bear the following labels:
- Label of live animals, using dark green on a light background. The kind of animal being transported should be identified in a circle on the tag itself (e.g. mammals, birds, reptiles, fish);
- Package orientation labels on all four sides of the container; and
- Any other label required by countries of destination or transit of the expedition.
For more information, please contact your LAN CARGO local Office.
