Special Attention

For a comfortable and safe journey, ANA will handle your pet with the utmost care, but since an aircraft is different from its usual environment, there may be a possibility that its physical condition may be affected. Please read the following points before you travel with your pet.

Flow of check in and pick up at the airport

1. At the Baggage Drop-off Counter

Check in your pet at the baggage drop-off counter.

Please come to the counter early as more time will be required than usual to check in.

  • * Your pet may excrete in its cage due to stress from lengthy travel and changes in environment. Please take your pet for a walk and allow it to relieve itself before bringing it to the baggage drop-off counter.
  • * For Premium Class customers, check-in is also available at the "ANA PREMIUM CHECK-IN" and "ANA SUITE CHECK-IN" counters.
