When looking for the right transport bag for the next flight with your dog or cat, you will come across the IATA standard dimensions of the dog bag 55x40x23 cm. Depending on the airline, the dimensions of the transport bags for the dog and the total weight of the animal including the transport bag vary. We recommend that you register your dog as soon as possible with the airline. The number is limited. Check with your airline in advance about their transport conditions and entry requirements.

Our customers fly with all TARIGS backpack models. However, the MountainRock Backpack from size Medium is officially at least 2 cm too deep. The PeakStone Backpack in sizes Small and Medium meets the requirements of many airlines. To be safe, check with your airline in advance to determine what requirements must be met in order for you to take your pet into the cabin.
Typical requirements for the transport container, in order to take your pet into the airplane cabin, are:
- The animal must be able to stand, lie down and turn in its natural position.
- The container must be escape-proof, leak-proof and bite-proof.
- The inside of the container must be lined with absorbent material.
Usually, you should “stow” your dog or cat in the footwell of your front seat. Probably no one will measure exactly at check-in. Exceptions confirm the rule. (All information is without guarantee).
