Due to company policy, pets accepted as baggage on routes operated by StarPeru are limited to dogs and cats (house animals). The transport of these animals is not included in the baggage allowance permitted. Therefore, they will always be treated a baggage excess and the passenger will be charged the appropriate rate for their transport.

Important information:
The pet transport service has certain number limitations per flight, so it is important that you request the service at the moment of booking or purchasing the tickets.

Remember to be at the airport at least 2 hours before departure, so we can check all the proper documentation as well as the animal’s vaccination records.

Other animal species and/or unaccompanied pets will be transported only through our cargo service.

In some cases and on domestic routes we will transport fight roosters. In case you need this service, please contact us to our call center 705-9000 or at
