The biggest thing is to make sure that he is comfortable being in the same crate that he will be using for travel. If he has not been in it before you should acclimate him to it by putting in a few treats and letting him walk in and out of it. After a few times of this you can close him in and leave him for a short period of time. If he does well with this you can slowly start to increase the amount of time that he is in the crate. If he is good in the crate then he will likely not need any medications for the flight. You do want to make sure that you have a valid health certificate from your veterinarian showing that he is healthy enough to fly. If you have any further questions your vet can answer them for you at this visit.
