When buying a ticket, you need to notify the carrier about your plans of travelling with an animal, so that the airline has time to prepare a place for it. It is necessary to submit the notification at least two days prior to your departure in order to avoid a situation when there is no space for your animal on the aircraft, as every aircraft has certain restrictions on the number of animals that can be transported at a time.
