Dog Travel

PetAir UK has been arranging dog travel since 2004. Working with every airline that allows dogs, 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, which means that the vets have undergone extra training and can complete the DEFRA export certificates and pre-travel health checks for your dogs.

Travelling with a dog to a new destination can be difficult and stressful, but the team at PetAir UK does all we can to ensure your dog’s welfare comes first. Our priority is getting your dog, to your destination, with as little stress to them as possible.

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 makes moving with a dog a calmer and more relaxing process.

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.
