We work daily with the vets who check and sign off the documents and animals at Heathrow at point of departure.
  • Delivery to the flight in just 5 minutes to Heathrow Cargo Centre
  • Air kennels (lined with absorbent, cosy Vet Bed) which meet current IATA specification, manufactured in our own workshop. Air freight is calculated on the volume of the air kennel and IATA regulations ensure pets have room to stand, turn around and lie down. Our air kennels are made to measure ensuring comfort to the pets and saving on unnecessary expensive air freight charges.
  • Australian quarantine kennels are well run. The staff there will help with booking onward flights to Brisbane and Adelaide.

Airpets customers are assigned their own pet travel consultant who will apply for the import permit / reserve quarantine space in Australia, provide the forms for all veterinary requirements and guide you through each stage of the process. So no matter where you live in the UK we will hold your hand from start to finish.  Onward travel to Perth and Brisbane can be arranged by our pet travel agents in Australia.

Please note:

  • All pets should be up to date with their annual vaccinations/kennel cough at least 14 days before departure
  • We need to ensure a negative blood test result and so it's important to speak to us before updating the annual vaccinations. 
  • All  cats and dogs from the UK, Malta, Republic of Ireland and Sweden will be required to have a rabies vaccination and rabies titre test prior to entry in Australia.
  • We strongly suggest checking the requirements on the import permit as they can change periodically.
