fiberglass PET CRATES

IATA Approved - Crates & Kennels


For your pet’s safety they are only allowed to travel in an IATA-approved fibre crate. Made from metal and fibreglass, these crates range from 21 inches to 48 inches in length and are designed specifically for your pet’s safety and comfort while travelling.

Every airline lists an IATA-approved crate as a mandatory travel requirement, both for domestic and international pet travel. The Indian Railways also list it as a mandatory requirement, but only for cats. A crate is recommended during road travel as well for passenger and driver safety, provided your pet isn’t too large to fit in one.

Why do I require an IATA-approved crate for my pet’s air travel?

IATA has specified certain guidelines for crates permitted in airlines for pet travel. Fabricated from fibreglass, these crates remain stable, strong and sturdy on the ground as well as during the landing and taking off of a flight.

They have wired steel windows for proper ventilation and two food bowls can be installed in the mesh gate of the cage for feeding pets. Also equipped with detachable wheels, these crates make transportation of the pet easier.

How can I select an appropriate crate for my pet’s travel?

You can measure your pet using the following guidelines. Based on these dimensions and certain calculations, an appropriate kennel is finalised for the pet’s flight.

  • length of the pet – from the tip of the nose to the root of the tail,

  • width of the pet – Across shoulders

  • height of the pet – From the top of the head to the floor.
