Carriage of pets is not included in free baggage allowance and is subject to fees. When weighed together with the crate to be carried in the cabin, it should not be more than 8 kg. 

The pet is weighed with its crate, regardless of the passenger’s free baggage allowance. The pet fee is calculated by multiplying the price per kg according to the table below, which applies to the route along with the weight. 

The excess baggage fee is charged per box or crate. For example: If a passenger traveling from Istanbul to Frankfurt has two cats in one crate (container), the container is weighed with the two cats. If the total weight (crate and cats) does not exceed 8 kg, the passenger is charged by multiplying the pet fee per kg according to the table below.
