Cookie the bearded dragon
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.

Barny the Golden Retriever with owner
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”.

Ok, so we often get people calling us asking to move their pets and they are shocked at how expensive it can be and so our clients will change their plans or book the flights themselves. Very few airlines will take a booking direct from a client and the main reason behind this is that if a pet lands at its destination with incorrect paperwork, then it is the airline who gets the fine and the job of flying a pet back to its destination. Petair UK has helped with 2 recent events which highlight why it is sensible to use a good pet shipper.

Anyone taking their pets to Sydney in the foreseeable future ought to know that Sydney is going to be closing soon and all dogs and cats will be flown into Melbourne and from there will be flown to their final destination in Australia. Over the course of Petair UK's life, we have had the options of Perth, Melbourne and Sydney. Perth quarantine has been opened and closed and opened and then finally closed and now it seems Sydney is doing similar.
