There’s no getting around it – taking your pet travelling by air away from UK, whether on a quick holiday or even more permanently, is expensive, time-consuming and may be complicated.
There are always a host of regulations which have to be followed, both country and airline specific, and they frequently change.
Generally speaking, the farther away or maybe more exotic your destination, the more work is necessary to meet import regulations, veterinary requirements and to navigate through the area rules.
Our job at Pets by Plane is to help you find the right flights (many airlines won’t carry snub-nosed breeds of dogs and cats) navigate the rules and regulations, advise on the proper travel kennel and be sure that your pet can travel comfortably, securely and as economically as possible.
With over 25 year’s experience in transporting animals around the globe, we’ll ensure everything is really as stress free that you can and we could make the calm well-being, comfort and safety of one’s pet our top priority. We take our motto of’We care in the air’extremely seriously and pride ourselves on giving a dedicated, efficient and caring service.
