Is there a possibility of my pet’s travel crate being rejected?
Yes, there is a possibility of your crate being rejected if it isn’t big enough for your pet, doesn’t meet the IATA Standards or isn’t airline-approved. A few factors to consider to ensure your pet has a crate that meets best global practices and is in compliance with the regulatory framework would be the following:
- Material of the crate and if it meets the guidelines required for it to be, based on your pet.
- Size of it and if it will be comfortable for your pet to be in for a long duration. You will need to consider if your pet has enough room to stand, stretch, turn, or sleep in.
- Is it leak-proof and have adequate bed padding?
- Is the crate’s door hard metal with fully efficient, well-functioning hardware attached to it?
- Is the roof of it fully solid and sealed?
- Does it house two water dishes inside that can also be accessible from outside for refilling purposes?
These are a few surface requirements for your pet’s travel crate to ensure that it is airline-approved. In the case of exotic animals, birds or reptiles and rodents, it’s best to cross-check the exact requirements before design a custom crate to ensure the chances of it getting rejected are as minimum as possible.
