Eva Airlines Only transports Dogs, Cats, Birds and Rabbits
Pets As Unchecked Baggage in the Passenger Cabin:
Pets can be accepted only in Economy and Evergreen Deluxe Class. The total weight of the pet and kennel cannot exceed 5 kg/11 lb. Onboard the aircraft, you will be required to keep the pet inside a crate, kennel or container which is varied with aircraft type. Please contact EVA Reservations for more details. Kennel or container must be made of rigid plastics material which can provide a strong packing during the carriage; further information please refer to Pets As Checked Baggage.
Your pet and its container must safely fit under the seat in front of you. A bird in its cage must be covered with a cloth. You cannot feed your pet inside the aircraft cabin but can give it water. Your pet must remain in its container/crate/kennel throughout the flight.
A properly harnessed seeing-eye/hearing-aid dog accompanying a vision or hearing impaired passenger can be transported in the passenger cabin. These special needs dogs will be admitted without being caged without weight or size limitations, and will be required to lay on the floor next to a cabin wall without occupying a seat.
Pets As Checked Baggage:
Pets can be accepted for carriage by air only if they are being transported in containers that must be: leak, escape and claw-proof.. Constructed so that there is no risk of your animal escaping, injuring itself or causing damage to other items in the aircraft. Designed for air transportation, including handling and care, e.g., feeding, watering, cleaning, etc., ensuring that the animal is comfortable without risk of it injuring or causing discomfort to personnel responsible for its safe transit.
The carrier must have functioning ventilation openings on more than one side. Easily recognizable as an animal container. Have moisture-absorbing material covering the bottom or floor. Kennel or container must be made of rigid plastics material which can provide a strong packing during the carriage.
Height: Height of the animal in standing position, without touching the roof of the cage. Length: From nose to root of the tail, plus half height from ground to elbow-joint. Width: Twice that of the animal across the shoulder blades.
The container must be large enough to allow your animal to stand upright or lie down comfortably. A sufficient supply of food and water with appropriate feeding receptacles must be securely attached to the container along with easily understood feeding instructions.
The compartment in which your pet will be carried will have the same pressure and temperature as the passenger cabin, and lights will be turned on.
There is no restriction on weight for pets transported as checked baggage with the exception of structural limitations on some aircraft. For details, please contact EVA Air. No more than two adult animals of comparable size, weighing as much as 14 kg/31 lb. each, can be shipped in the same kennel. For their safety and comfort, animals that weigh more than that must travel individually. A maximum of three animals that are less than six months old and from the same litter can be shipped in the same cage.
Your pet(s) and their kennel or container, as either checked or unchecked baggage, will be charged as excess baggage and excluded from your free baggage allowance. Seeing-eye/hearing-aid dogs will be carried free of charge without weight limits when they accompany passengers who depend upon these animals. Weight system: Normal excess baggage charges apply. Piece system: An accompanied pet that meets all requirements will be charged as TWO units of excess baggage. If one pet is heavier than 32 kg/70 lbs., an additional THREE-piece charge will be collected for weight between 32~45 kg/70~99 lb. For pets weighing more than 45 kg/99 lb., an additional ONE-piece charge will be collected for every 10 kg/22 lb. over 45 kg/99 lb.
