There’s no quarantine on landing for most of the places we fly dogs and cats to; the only places that impose quarantine restrictions out of the common destinations are Australia and New Zealand. Otherwise, dogs and cats land at the destination airport and can be collected and brought home that same day.

This is Cookie the Bearded dragon that we flew to Zurich, Switzerland earlier this month. Bearded Dragons for obvious reasons are slightly different from the usual cat and dog exports. Paperwork aside, handling pets of this nature require special care. One of the advantages of PetAir is that we're staffed by many vet nurses and vets who have handled all sorts of pets over their various careers.

This is the story of Barney an 11 year old Golden retriever who flew from UK to Australia, by quite the convoluted route. Barney was left behind in UK with the owner’s daughter, while he waited for his date of flight to come around. The parents had to travel to Australia for work and it was a treat to be able to leave Barney behind with a family member, where he would be spoiled and loved.

In September 2015, Petair UK celebrated flying our 10,000 client – which amounts to around 18,000 pets assuming many of our clients have more than one pet. This is quite a milestone as Petair was a good idea dreamed up by 2 vets on one of the vets’ honeymoon, with the simple premise of doing pet shipping “better”. The vast majority of the time we succeed in this. We aim to look after the pets first and foremost and in the event of problems we default to “What would we do if this pet was our own pet”.
