Vietnam Airlines

Vietnam Airlines is the national carrier of Vietnam and a proud member of the SkyTeam alliance. They currently fly to some 47 destinations in 16 countries around the globe. Their young and modern fleet provides regular service to cities in Europe, Asia, Australia, and North America.

If you will be travelling with your pet, be advised that Vietnam Airlines will allow animals to travel either in-cabin or as checked baggage, depending on the size and weight of your pet. If you would like your animal companion to travel in the cabin with you, they ask that you contact them at least 36 hours prior to departure. Fees will vary depending on the point of departure and the destination.

Restrictions

  • Travelers are reminded that every country has different rules and regulations governing the acceptance and transportation of animals. It is strongly recommended that you contact the consulate, embassy, or government authority for any country (or countries) you will be visiting to ensure that you have met all entrance requirements.
  • Space for pet travel is limited. Please call before you travel to ensure that your animal friend will be able to travel with you.

If you are unable to travel with your pet

If your pet will be travelling unaccompanied, Vietnam Airlines Cargo may be able to help. As part of the SkyTeam family they have experience transporting everything from cats and dogs to birds, fish, monkeys, and reptiles (except for poisonous snakes). They do ask that arrangements be made in advance in order to confirm space from the point of origin to the destination.

Codeshare flights

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.
