How Our International Pet Transport Services Work?

What to expect when your Pet Travels to England & around the UK

Our highly qualified Team of experts work in collaboration to ensure that your pet’s comfort, safety and welfare is our top priority.  Here are just a few services you can expect directly from our team members.

Pet Travel Consultants just like a travel agent, they will organise your flights to United Kingdom in line with your travel arrangements as best as possible and include a special pet delivery service to your new home.  Our team will require all the important details of your pet including health conditions, microchip details, vaccination history and information to ensure your pet will be comfortable on their overseas adventure.

Pet Handlers can collect your pet from your house, transport them into our transit lounge for a stretch, toilet stop and a drink of water.  Once your pet has been cleared for flying, they will be safely transported to the airport and checked in for their flight.  Depending on your itinerary, our Pet Handlers will provide a pet travel update prior to your pet being checked in on the aircraft when travelling through one of our Transit Lounges.

In-House Vets are available to provide the export veterinary work and quarantine requirements for entering the United Kingdom and ensure your pet is in the ideal condition before they embark on their long flight ahead.

Connecting Flights & The Luxury of a Comfort Stop for Your Pet

Depending on your flight carrier and itinerary, your pet may require connecting flights and/or a comfort stop. Comfort stops are designed to give your pet a short break whilst they are in transit on route to their final destination. At Jetpets, we have dedicated and trusted partners around the world that cater for your pets comfort stop on our behalf.  All of our overseas partners are equipped with boarding/accommodation facilities to house your pet on their short or long term comfort stop depending on your final destination.  For more information please chat with our Jetpets Pet Travel Consultant.

Trusted By The International Industry’s Best

Jetpets Melbourne has become the first pet transport company in the Asia Pacific Region to be awarded The Centre of Excellence for Live Animals Logistics (CEIV) Certification, and is one of only five companies in the world to have received the honour. “Jetpets customers can be confident that their precious animals are traveling in safe and healthy conditions” – Glyn Hughes, IATA Global Head of Cargo


What Happens at the Airport?

  • The captain of the aircraft is aware that your loved one is on board their flight
  • The captain will set the temperature to approx. 18 degrees Celsius so that the animals are comfortable
  • The cabin is dimly lit so that your loved one can see what is going on around them
  • What we feel and hear in the cabin of the plane is the same as what animals experience (except in a travel crate they have much more legroom than us!).

Q: Do I Need To Check That My Travel Crate Is Airline Compliant?

Yes, if you are using your own travel crate you need to check it is airline compliant. If your pet is travelling in a Jetpets travel crate you can be assured it is airline compliant and sized up perfectly for the comfort and safety of your pet.

Q: Why Do Pets Have To Be At The Airport 3 Hours Before Departure?

Like humans, pets are required to check in early for their flight too. Some airlines require pets to be checked in 3 hours before departure. Your Pet Travel Consultant will advise you on the specific check in time based on your pet’s travel itinerary.

Q: What Happens When My Pet Arrives At Its Destination?

Once the plane has landed, pets are always the first to be taken off the plane and into a secured and comfortable waiting area. Each arrival airport procedure is different so your Jetpets Pet Travel Consultant will have all of this outlined in the travel itinerary that is personalised for your pet.

Q: Do Dogs Need Passports In England?

To travel from Australia to the UK, your dog won’t need to have a pet passport. However, you will need to get an official veterinary certificate from an authorised vet, amongst other supporting documents. If you plan to travel to or within the EU after arriving in the UK, you will need to get a pet passport upon arrival.
