Meet our first pet passengers of 2024, Labradoodle Duke from the US, Mia from the Czech Republic, and Skye and Tilian from Italy.

Duke, a dog from the US to the UK

Duke’s owner, Sydney, relocated from Denver in the US to Birmingham in the UK to take up a new post.

Our role was to source Duke’s airfreight out of Denver, meet him on arrival at London Heathrow Airport, and drive him up to Birmingham.

Everything was going swimmingly until we heard there was a problem with Duke’s plane, meaning his departure was delayed by 24 hours. Sydney’s flight left on time, so she went on ahead and made sure everything was ready for Duke’s arrival.

The dear boy arrived in fine form and courier Helen drove late into the night to make sure he wasted no time in being reunited with Sydney.

Mia, a dog from the Czech Republic to France

Courier Trevor drove to Brno in the Czech Republic to collect lovely Labrador mix Mia. She’s a rescue dog who’s been adopted by Dave. He asked us to drop her off with a dog trainer in the Vienne region of France.

Irresistible Mia — we can see why Dave fell for her!
