IAG Cargo has launched a new pet transportation service on flights from the UK through its partnership with PetAir UK and British Aiways. It offers an improved online booking experience and custom crates to suit each pet and coincides with the unveiling of IAG Cargo’s new meet-and-greet pet area at London Heathrow.
PetAir UK offers a UK-wide home pet collection service and can also manage all import permits, export documents and fulfil veterinary requirements in house. All pets are flown in a temperature-controlled environment in customised crates that are lined with layers of absorbable vet bedding that wicks away moisture.
IAG Cargo manager of global products, Daniel Johnson, said: IAG Cargo’s dedicated team of skilled and passionate animal handlers work alongside PetAir UK to ensure the highest level of care for pets for their journey to any of our 350-plus destinations.”
PetAir UK veterinary director, Luke Gamble, added: “Our team offers a wealth of expertise, with many of us being vets or vet nurses. The new service allows us to elevate the standards of pet shipping to a new level and give our customers an elite service and total peace of mind.”
