Pets on-board Mango Airlines
You surely can bring your dogs, cats any other legally registered pet with you on your trip flying with Mango Airlines. Apart from all the standard protocols most companies provide for flying with pets, Mango airlines offers some exclusive advantages many companies actually do not offer and they are all set prioritizing the well being of the animals for a safe and comfortable trip for your little friends.
Mango Airlines allows at least One Guest to travel in the cargo hold with the pets depending on the availability of space, so you could make your trip with your pet to let your friend more calm and feeling protected. This is a good way to avoid more delicate measures like applying sedatives or other soothing drugs since some animals might be allergic to such substances.
On the other hand, is also a responsibility of the owner to provide a suitable container, which should be made of metal, polyethylene or fiberglass, leak proof and must be under governmental requirements that ensure the transportation facility is really safe and comfortable for the animal. The container must not weight more than 32kg and only two containers are accepted by plane. The weight is total, so you have to consider the sum of the weight of both units to find out if you are following the requirements of Mango Airlines
You have to book your pet flight before you do your own booking with Mango Airlines because the transportation is also subject to space availability, so be sure your pet can travel with you on your schedule.
Is also mandatory the animal is healthy, was quarantined for the required time by law before the date of the flight and has all the vaccination required by South Africa law.
Also, be sure you are really under all the aforementioned criteria when you are about to check in. The lack of documents and specific vaccines, as well as inadequate containers will not be accepted by Mango Airlines and your pet will not be able to travel.
People who are, however, transporting guide dogs are allowed to take the pets with them in the cabin, but the animal must be as well under all the vaccination requirements and legally registered as a guide dog. Is also important the animal is able to do aircraft trips since some dogs may get really stressed with the trip, so you have to check as well with a veterinarian if your guide dog is able to come with you healthy and safe. Sedative measures are also allowed to transport pets in the cabin.
