What would my pet’s trip be like from South Africa to Europe?
On arrival at the airport, ahead of your pet’s journey, one of the airline’s experienced freight handlers will check your pet’s welfare, and proceed to start the customs clearance process.

Transporting your pet by air is the quickest and most efficient way of relocating to or from Europe with the least amount of hassle. For international flights, live animals travel in the cargo cabin, which is pressurised just like the cabin you fly in. The plane’s captain is aware that your pet is on board and keeps the air conditioner set to a comfortable 18ºC.

Your pet won’t have to be quarantined upon arrival in Europe if you comply with all the above health and documentation requirements. We give our loyal customers the peace of mind that their pets will receive the best possible care, and that they will be financially protected with liability minimised.
