The Journey

 

Moving any dog 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 dog.

 

PetAir UK will use the best airlines and the quickest routes for your dogs, avoiding the cheaper routes where there may be a stop on the way. Where possible, the journey is made shorter to reduce stress for your dog.

Where in the plane does my dog travel?

 

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

 

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