Pet Travel

PetAir UK have more than 12 years experience in pet travel. We work with airlines who provide pet travel, so we can organise every step of their journey. PetAir UK can offer as much or as little help as you would like – just ask us.

PetAir UK is registered with IATA, IPATA and DEFRA approved. All of the vets at PetAir UK are official veterinarians, and the vets have undergone extra training and can complete the DEFRA export certificates and pre-travel health checks for your pets.

Pet travel to a new destination can be difficult, but the team at PetAir UK does all we can to ensure your pets welfare always comes first.

The Journey

Moving any pet from their home to a new place can be stressful for owners and the animal. All of our flight routings are based around what is best for that particular pets travel.

PetAir UK will use the best airlines and the quickest routes when travelling with a pet, avoiding the cheaper routes where there may be a stop on the way. Where possible, the journey is made shorter to reduce stress for the pet during their travels.

There are a number of requirements needed for your pet to travel including a pet passport, microchip and other vet checks depending on their destination. You can find more details on pet passport requirements here.

 

Where in the plane does my pet travel?

Your pet will usually travel in the hold of the aircraft, in a special area which is heated and pressurised. There are some exceptions where pets are allowed in the cabin, however each airline varies.

There are more details about your pets travelling in the hold on our FAQ’s page.
