If your pet will be travelling unaccompanied, Korean Air Cargo may be able to help. It is important to note that any pet entering or leaving Korea should have documentation which is considered equivalent to an EU pet passport (such as a microchip for easy identification, as well as any required vaccination and health documentation). Any animal without the proper documentation may face quarantine.
As part of SkyTeam, they feature the Variation® Live program, which specializes in the transportation of a diverse range of live animals. Please contact Korean Air Cargo for details.
Pets may not be accepted on flights operated by codeshare partners. It is strongly recommended that you contact any codeshare partners or other airlines directly to familiarize yourself with their individual policies regarding pet travel.
