What does IATA Standards mean?
IATA stands for International Air Transport Association which has regulations on the material, dimensions, door specifications, attachments, flooring and other requirements.
The IATA Live Animals Regulations are the worldwide standards for transporting live animals by commercial airlines. The objective of the IATA Live Animals Regulations is to ensure all animals are transported safely and humanely by air. It is an established fact that carriage of live animals by air is the most humane and expedient method of transportation over long distances.
So what does IATA ensure? To begin with, your pet’s travel crate is required to be made of ultra-strong, preapproved materials, especially for larger breeds to ensure they are designed for security and mobility. Second, all crates should be mindfully crafted keeping the ventilation at the forefront, which means zeroing out the chances of suffocation or lack of air traveling through and across the crate. Lastly and the most critical element of all would be ensuring that the crate is spacious enough for your pet to comfortably stand, turn around, stretch and lie down in without being big enough for your pet to toppled and turned during turbulence or general movement.
