Adria Airways ships all types of goods. There are some restrictions regarding special cargo.
We undertake airport-to-airport bulk shipping. For certain destinations, we also offer you airport-to-door service.
Despite all the technology, people are still the key element of cargo service. That is way we have motivated, equiped with knowledge and experienced people in our cargo operatios, who deal with your cargo shipements with care and high degree of professionalism.
Special types of goods include shipments that require special receipt, storage, loading and transportation because of their nature (hazardous materials, live animals, perishable goods, human remains, etc.), value (high value shipments), dimensions and weights (heavy packages), or state regulations (weapons, ammunition, etc.).
We transport the following types of animals:
- domestic pets (dogs, cats)
- other small animals
Animals must be ready for transportation according to the latest version of IATA Live Animals Regulations.
The consignor must prepare the following documents for each consignment of animals:
- veterinary health certificate issued by the competent veterinarian;
- the consignor's certificate for live animals, issued by the sales representative.
In addition, the following are required for the transportation of domestic dogs, cats and ferrets:
- European pet passport for the movement of pet animals within the European community;
- veterinary certificate for commercial and non-commercial movement, and transportation from third countries into the European community;
- vaccination certificate for rabies and other contagious diseases;
- animal identification (microchip or tattoo).
Detailed information regarding the required document and certificates is available at the Veterinary Administration of the Republic of Slovenia.
Cages and containers
The animal must be housed in a suitable cage or container, as defined by IATA regulations for the transportation of animals.
We do not accept animals that are sensitive to low temperatures (tropical species) between 1 November and 31 March.
We accept perishable goods that are sensitive to changes in temperature (fresh or frozen foodstuffs, fruit, vegetables, flowers, meat, blood samples and tissue, reagents, etc.); however, we do not accept responsibility for any damage caused by climatic changes, temperature fluctuations or other causes if the goods are not suitably packed and marked.
The consignor must submit the documents required by the country of destination or transit, e.g.:
- phytosanitary certificate
- health certificate.
It is not possible to regulate the temperature in the cargo bay during the flight. The consignor must therefore use suitable packaging with insulation material and cooling or heating inserts. The goods will be stored appropriately in a freezer, refrigerator or heated enclosure at the required temperature, which must be visibly indicated on each package and on the transportation documents.
We only transport eggs for hatching when the outside temperature is between +5°C and +24°C.

- corrosive materials (class 8);
- other dangerous materials, such as internal combustion engines, dry ice, magnetic material, strongly pungent and irritating materials, etc. (class 9).
We do not accept valuables for shipping that are listed in the TACT 3.7.6 regulation, except on routes for which there is a special agreement. For more detailed information, please contact our Cargo department.
Valuables include the following:

We accept cremated and non-cremated mortal remains for transportation.
The consignor must provide the following documents:
- travelling documentation
- consent of the nearest diplomatic mission, if so required by the country of destination.
We accept non-cremated human remains for transportation in an airtight internal coffin made from zinc or other material, which must be additionally packaged in a solid wooden crate. Cremated human remains in an urn may be packaged in a strong cardboard box.
