Pets on Kulula Airlines

mango airlinesKulula is one of the most prominent air lines companies in South Africa and is completely adapted to also transport your pets, though they work under some restrictions when it comes to animals. Only cats and dogs are allowed on board in the flights. Other species have to be carried in the cargo. To make their transportation as safe and accurate as possible under the laws of pets transportation, you have to be as well adapted to bring your little friends with you, though the policy of Kulula Airlines is no different than the one applied by many other flight companies around the world and South Africa, so you will need to prepare your pet for vaccinations and certificates delivered by governmental authorities allowing your pet for a safe travel.

Which pets are allowed on Kulula airlines

Despite Kulula Airlines allow cats and dogs to be transported, the age of the animal is restrictive. Puppies and kittens are not allowed if they are under 10 weeks old. Females that are pregnant and lactating are not either allowed. These specifications follow the international laws that protect the integrity of the animals. Air trips can be quite stressing for pets that are carrying babies and lactating, and they can behave on survival mode, get really stressed and be hard to be controlled – as well as they cannot be sedated.
Be sure to check your pet is not even on early stages of pregnancy otherwise the stress of the trip might cause involuntary abortions and the animal will not have the required assistance on board.

Apart from pets that match these criteria, you can bring dogs and cats of any other age on board of your flight on Kulula Airlines, and pets of other species will come in the cargo. The restrictions of lactating females are only applied, of course, for mammals.Kulula airlines

They charge the same R350 for the transportation up to 23kg, but the maximum weight is also 32kg with the same extra fee of R250.
