Qatar Airways allows its customers to carry up to six birds in economy class, with prices varying between $ 350 and $ 2,000 per bird, depending on destination. Etihad, another company in the region, also lets owners take their birds as long as proper documentation is provided.

Habitually used in hunting, falcons are very popular animals in the United Arab Emirates, where falconry is a sport that moves millions of dollars.

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the Emirates, has the largest hawk hospital in the world.

Falcons are birds of prey that can be found all over the world. There are around forty species with heights ranging from 25 to 65 cms tall.

Unlike other birds of prey falcons have a special tooth on the side of their beaks which they use for killing.

Peregrine falcons can reach diving speeds of 200 miles per hour (320 km/h) which makes them one of the fastest-moving creatures on Earth.
