Live Animals

Singapore Airlines Cargo carries a diverse range of live animals — ranging from precious racehorses, to rare animals on zoo-to-zoo conservation exchange programmes, to household pets.

Professional Handling
We handle the live animals with care in compliance with IATA Live Animals Regulations (LAR). You can also rely on our dedicated staff to ensure the welfare of the animals.

Conducive Environment
Our B747-400 freighter regulates temperatures in the cargo compartment between 4°C and 28°C. A cabin pressure system also provides a comfortable environment for the animals.

Travelling with Pets
We take measures to ensure that your pets travel comfortably and safely with us. You can travel with your pets either as “Accompanied” (part of checked baggage) or “Unaccompanied”. Please click here for more information.

Kindly note that we do not uplift the following:
Birds (except those shipped from one government zoo to another)
Live pigs on all passenger aircraft
Primates intended for research purposes
Greyhounds for racing

For more information, please refer to SQ Operator Variations in the IATA LAR or contact your local SIA Cargo office.
