Edinburgh Airport has 1 terminal, with 33 airlines and 188 routes. In 2016 they saw over 12.3 million passengers. They accept flights from leading airlines such as British Airways, KLM, and Scotland based Loganair.

Edinburgh works by the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) whereby pets can enter the UK without quarantine if they meet the conditions. This scheme is also the same for transporting pets out of the UK. Be advised that some countries may have their own rules regarding pet transport. We can advise you on any rules that may apply to your pet when entering other countries.

Edinburgh Airport ensures that pets are transported safely and comfortably, by regulating that animal containers meet the IATA requirements. PetAir are IATA agents, meaning we can advise and ensure you have acceptable pet crates, whilst making sure your pet has their home comforts. We can build crates specific to your pets size. This will keep them feeling comfortable and secure for their whole journey.

There is a Border Inspection Post (BIP) at Edinburgh Airport – the only small animal BIP in Scotland. The Border Inspection Post gives owners of dogs, cats or ferrets under the EU Pet Travel Scheme the option of touching down in the Scottish capital.

The Border Inspection Post has been designed to meet the needs of pets of varying sizes. Fresh water and dry food will be provided and your pet will have access to a secure exercise area. This facility aims to reunite passengers with their pets within three hours of arrival.

PetAir have lots of experience in transporting pets to and from Edinburgh Airport.

We understand that flying your pets can be stressful for owners, we can take care of everything to make sure the journey runs smoothly.

Harley dog to Canada

Harley flew to Canada during coronavirus lockdown. April 2020

Thank you for the follow up!  Harley made it safe and sound and honestly PetAir UK made this the EASIEST process of my life.  I was not worried about her and the fact that you were able to pick her up and provide a crate for her made things that much better.  I am so happy to have my fur baby back.
