So far Indians have only been able to carry pets in cabin domestically on Air India. With India’s newest airline, Air Akasa beginning to fly on the 1st of November it is anticipated that they will begin to fly allowing pets onboard and even in the cabin.

The airline’s founder, Vinay Dube stated that pets weighing up to 7kg are to be allowed onboard. 7kg and 32 kg will need to be checked in at airports while dogs weighing more than that will be checked in cargo.

On each flight, only one pet is permitted in the cabin and one more in the cargo hold so in total, only two onboard. Pets in a cabin must be in a crate and a muzzle.
