What is an airline-approved crate?
While we always recommend to cross-check with the airlines to be in line with the most recent set of rules and regulations, there are a couple of general guidelines to keep in mind when getting your pet’s travel crate made. First, the crate should be made of hard plastic, metal or wood and the roof of it should it be solid without gaps or doors; the door in front of the crate is required to be made of metal only plus, the hardware of it, i.e. nuts and bolts should be in good condition to function properly. The crate should accommodate two water dishes in the inner part and should be accessible from outside with the floor of it being solid and leak-proof. An absorbent material, towel, shredded newspaper or a thick padding should be placed at the bottom of the crate. These are a few basic guidelines to ensure your crate falls under being airline-approved.
