TRAVEL WITH PETS

We are concerned about the safety and comfort of our passengers as well as that of their pets. We are pleased to inform you that Air Century transports pets under the following health requirements, kennel dimension, and behavior.

The pet service charge in cabin or cargo is $100 USD per leg.

The acceptance of pets for travel is subject to availability. The passenger must request pet service after their ticket purchase on our web page or by calling us at (809) 826-4333. Air Century reserves the right to refuse transportation in the event that the passenger did not request pet service at least 48 hours prior to the day of departure.

BEFORE YOU FLY

  • The transportation of pets and their acceptance will be subject to the approval of the governmental and sanitary authorities of the ports of embarkation and disembarkation.
  • Pets may not travel without a passenger.
  • The passenger is responsible for all the necessary documentation for the entry of your pet to the travel destination.
  • It is possible that some destinations require a health certificate for your pet. This must be issued by a licensed veterinarian within 30 days before transport and must show inoculation against rabies. Your veterinarian can provide you more information.
  • Pets must be transported in waterproof, hard-cased, ventilated kennels with a maximum dimension of 9″x 14″ x 14″ (23cm x 36cm x 36cm).
  • Pets must be clean and odorless for travel.
  • The pet must fit comfortably in its kennel and with the ability to move/turn around.
  • Your pet counts as an item of carry-on baggage and must remain inside your kennel during boarding and disembarking.
  • Air Century reserves the right to accept pets depending on it’s conditions for travel and the container in which it is transported.

HEALTH

  • Your pet must have a minimum of 16 months of age if traveling to the USA.
  • The use of tranquilizers for pets during air travel is unpredictable and is not recommended.
  • The transportation of dogs and cats belonging to brachycephalic (flat-nosed) breeds is not recommended. These have restricted airways due to their anatomy, which causes them to have respiratory issues such as breathing difficulties. Their transport is subject to special provisions and conditions.

SPECIAL ASSISTANCE

  • If you are traveling with a service animal or emotional support animal, you must notify it at the time of reservation or no later than 48 hours before the flight.
  • Service animals can be transported free of cost and do not require the use of a kennel, but they do require a leash.
  • The passenger is responsible for providing a valid authorization from his licensed physician.
