At BaggagePets, as specialists in international pet and animal transportation since 2011, we are Authorized Agents of IAG CARGO.
IAG CARGO, through its Pets and Live Animals department, has been transporting since 1950. As one of the leading airlines in the industry, they understand the importance of taking perfect care of both their customers and their pets.
IAG CARGO encompasses 5 airlines, but only 4 of them transport pets and animals, which are some of the ones we collaborate with at BaggagePets:
- BRITISH AIRWAYS
- AER LINGUS
All pet trips to the United Kingdom must be carried out through an authorized IPATA agent like BaggagePets. The British government, in collaboration with the airlines, has determined that journeys accompanied by animals can only be conducted by professionals. This is due to concerns for the comfort of the pet and the control of disease spread.
If you wish to enter the UK, your dog, cat, or ferret must meet the requirements of the Pet Travel Scheme set by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA), and thus arrive at Authorized airports, avoiding Quarantine.
At BaggagePets, we will provide you with all the necessary details to ensure your pet flies in perfect condition, allowing you to pick them up at the destination airport with the utmost speed and convenience.
If you need to travel to the UK with your pet and require assistance, you can fill out our no-obligation quote form, and we’ll advise you on the best route, the documentation you need to fill out, and the requirements.
