Success! Qatar Airways announces changes to their pet excess baggage policy

 In News

Qatar Airways have updated their pet excess baggage policy and drastically reduced the costs. They have made flying your pets far more affordable than initially proposed, and we could not be happier! Not only have they responded to popular demand, they have also considered the importance of such a service and have not used it to exploit their customers.

The rates are now as follows:

  • Small to medium – Up to 32kg – To/From Qatar: $200, All other routes: $350
  • Large – Between 32kg and 75kg – To/From Qatar: $300, All other routes: $450
