Some airlines recently experienced incidents where large, strong or upset dogs escaped from their plastic kennel simply by chewing the sides of their crate. This has resulted in much damage to the inside of the plane and danger for human passengers in flight. Below is a special kennel constructed to respect the IATA Container Requirement No. 82, called “CR 82″ to relocate these dog breeds in safety.
The list of potentially aggressive dogs will include breeds such as Pitbull, Rottweiler, Bull Mastiff, English Mastiff, Dogo Argentino, Cane Corso… etc. as well as all the crosses of these breeds. The list of the potentially aggressive dog breeds would vary depending on the airline.
At Pet Express – Sri Lanka, we can construct any size of CR 82 travel crates with solid timber and strong plywood. These IATA compliant CR82 flight kennels can be tailored to fit any dog’s dimensions.
We suggest that, before you buy a travel kennel for your dog, you verify if his breed needs a CR 82 flight kennel.
Should the airline requires a IATA compliant CR 82 for your four legged fur friend, contact us as soon as possible as we would require about 14 working days to construct this type of flight kennel for the above breeds. If you have an urgent departure and you must leave in a rush, we may be able to construct your crate sooner for your dog’s specific dimensions but there would be an additional fee for constructing your crate outside our business hours.
