Edinburgh airport pet travel 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.
