Terminal4Pets offers comprehensive manifested cargo shipments for unaccompanied pets. While the process of cargo shipment is a procedurally more involved process than a flight with your pet, they will still travel safely in the same hold of the plane. The difference is the process surrounding the shipment. Your pet will be handled with the same extreme care from the airline.
Cargo flights are booked separately from your flight, using the cargo department of the airline. You will not take your pet through the check-in process in the airport but they will be loaded through the cargo entry to the plane. Using Terminal4Pets cargo service means that our pet transportation specialists will handle all aspects of your pet's cargo shipment including flight booking, ground transportation, export customs clearance, document preparation, and customs release. We work within regulations to book the easiest flight route for your pet on the best pet friendly airlines to ensure that they have the most comfortable and quick release at their destination. We realize that leaving your family member in anyone's hands is difficult. We strive to make the process stress free for you and your pet.
Manifested cargo is usually more expensive than flying excess baggage with your pet but you may choose this type of flight for different reasons. It is mandatory to use cargo shipments for your pet to import to several countries such as UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, UAE, Kenya and more. You may also choose cargo due to airline restrictions or if you are unable to travel with your pet.
