Fly your pet abroad

Working closely with local vets, we’ve transported over 600 pets worldwide.

We understand that your pets are members of your family, so we make sure they’re well taken care of in climate-controlled and pressurised compartments. Your pets are safe in our care.

We always recommend that you speak to a vet before transporting your pet. In Abu Dhabi, please contact the British Veterinary Centre , American Veterinary Centre  or the German Veterinary Clinic.
