Flying Your Pet To London

16.06.2020 01:54 pm

At Pets Lets, we work closely with a number of trusted pet companies, from travel, food, accessories, groomers, walking, bloggers as well as insurance and legal firms. For our relocation clients and people travelling with pets, we recommend Airpets as one of our few trusted travel partners. Pets Lets is also a member of the Pet Alliance Network

Airpets has kindly outlined the process of arriving in the UK with your pets. They can also ‘taxi’ your pet in comfort to your home, which is a pawsome idea and will be welcome news to many at Pets Lets.

Our Pet Arrival Lounge at London Heathrow is here to alleviate the stress of reuniting after a flight arrival for both owner and pet. After travelling apart for long periods of time, the last thing you need is to worry about how, where and when to pick your pet up at the LHR Border Inspection Post.

Located opposite Heathrow Terminal 5, our Pet Lounge makes for a convenient and comfortable place to be reunited with your pet after a long journey, offering maximum flexibility over your own personal circumstances.

Or if you prefer to go straight home from the airport we can deliver pets to any UK mainland address was well as some European destinations by request. We have a team of dedicated pet transport drivers and climate-controlled vehicles that are committed to your pets comfort, safety and overall well being.

The standard delivery takes place on either the same or next day following the pet(s) arrival to the UK. However, if more time is needed to settle into your new home, we can care for your pet(s) for as long as needed in our 5* rated pet hotel at our Heathrow location.

Planning to Leave the UK? Don’t leave a loved one behind! Taking your pet out of the UK for a holiday or more permanent move can require a good deal of planning and research. By using Airpets you can leave us to do the hard work, letting you concentrate on your own travel arrangements. Airpets are the most experienced pet relocation company in the UK, having completed tens of thousands of professional and safe pet moves since inception in 1966. Located close to Terminal 5 is essential in minimising the time pets spend in their Sky Kennels, allowing us to make the journey as short and stress-free as possible.

At Pets Lets, we see first-hand how important it is to our clients to know their pets have arrived safely. Our dogs and cats are part of the family and if we, as pet owners, could buy them a seat next to us on the airplane, then I am sure many would. That is how much pets mean to people. The in-flight meal could be tricky though.
