The Journey


Moving any pet somewhere new can be stressful and upsetting. PetAir UK journeys are all routed around what’s best for your particular pet. We use the best airlines and the quickest routes, avoiding cheaper routes that may require a stop. We take the time to plan the best journey for each individual pet to their destination. Keeping connection and waiting times to a minimum.


In the plane, your pet will travel in the hold of the aircraft. This is a special area which is heated and pressurised, just like the cabin.

Long haul pet flights

Long haul pet travel is any flight lasting long that 6 hours, to destinations such as to the UAE, the USA and more.

If you are looking to transport your pet on a long haul flight, there are some key things to know before booking. We recommend being aware of the importing regulations to your country of choice, which you can find more detail on here, as well as the Airlines we fly with and the Airports we fly from.

We have ample experience in long haul pet flights for your dogs and cats to over 250 destinations.

For their international pet flight, we want your pet to be as comfortable as possible. This is why we can make special crates that are built to specifically fit your pet. Their crates will be sprayed with pheromones and lined with veterinary bedding and incontinence pads for extra comfort. They can even have a favourite toy or blanket to make them feel secure on their journey.
