As a heartwarming expression of love for animals, a woman booked an entire Air India business cabin to travel with her pet. The woman was traveling from Mumbai to Chennai and spent a whopping price of approximately Rs. 2.5 lakh to book the entire business cabin for her pet dog.


The dog, named 'Bela', a Maltese snowy furball boarded the Air India flight AI-671 early on Wednesday morning. Reportedly, the J-class cabin on Air India A320 aircraft has 12 seats and the average cost of a business class ticket on this 2-hour long flight from Mumbai to Chennai ranges from Rs 18,000 to Rs 20,000. The dog owner booked all the seats for her dog to travel comfortably.

It should be noted that unlike other flights’ policies, Air India is the only Indian airline which allows small pets like cats, dogs and birds on flight under certain conditions. A passenger is allowed to travel with two of his/her pets and the pet will be traveling in the cabin or in the cargo hold depending on its size. The pet should be perfectly healthy and the owner must carry the rabies vaccination certificate.

In June-September 2020, Air India flew about 2,000 pets on its domestic flights. But this is the first time the entire business cabin was booked for a pet.
