Taking Pets Abroad

Taking pets abroad for either a holiday or moving to a new home can be a daunting prospect, with all of the paperwork, differing regulations and quarantine rules. However Airpets have many years of experience relocating pets all around the world and are able to organise every aspect exporting your pet.

Airpets can pick up your pet anywhere in the UK and bring them to their kennels and cattery near Heathrow Airport where they will be looked after until their flight. All documentation will have been completed by Airpets and a vet will make sure your pet is healthy and ready to fly before it is loaded onto the most direct flight to the destination in an IATA approved sky kennel. Finally once in the destination country an Airpets approved agent will transfer your pet from the airport to the final destination.

Importing Pets


When animals arrive into the UK they must undergo certain checks to ensure no diseases are being brought into the country. Importing pets from a country that does not qualify for the Pet Travel Scheme requires the animal to be kept in quarantine for six months.

Airpets is located just five minutes from Heathrow's cargo centre and has all of the facilities to accommodate cats and dogs in the highest comfort. All new animals are checked over by the Airpets vet to ensure they are healthy and are cared for by the dedicated kennel staff.

The Airpets import department are also able to advise and help with the complicated paperwork associated with importing a pet.

Sky Kennels

Airpets can provide IATA approved sky kennels for the safe and comfortable transport of animals. High quality wooden sky kennels are available in 22 different sizes to cater for all animal types. However Airpets are able to offer a service to construct custom made sky kennels for any animals that do not fit the standard sky kennels sizes. These sky kennels only take three working days to construct and also meet IATA standards.

Airpets also offer high density plastic sky kennels that are ideal for multiple uses. These kennels are available in six different sizes, and feature a steel door, leak proof floor and secure positive latch to make sure the animal is comfortable and secure.

Airpets ensure that all animals shipped in their sky kennels have the room to stand, sit, lie and turn around comfortably according to IATA Live Animal Regulations.less
