Pet Air UK is a familiar name across many airline pet travel policies, having 12 years’ experience in animal transport. In fact, Pet Air UK is the only animal transport company that’s both managed and owned by qualified vets! Operating under a ‘one of the family’ policy, all animals are treated with the same respect and care as the Pet Air UK team’s own pets during transport. As the cargo arm of Virgin Atlantic, British Airways, Qantas, Air New Zealand, TUI and Singapore Airlines, any pet cats and dogs flying as manifest cargo with these airlines will be handled by Pet Air UK. That is, except pets flying to the UK, as due to a partnership, Pet Air UK appoints IAG Cargo for all animals flying to the UK. But, if you’re flying a pet from the UK as cargo, they’ll instead travel with Pet Air UK. If you’ve transported your pet with Pet Air UK, remember to leave a review!
