arrivals from outside the EU
Although pets can be transported as excess baggage or even in the cabin on some flights, they aren’t allowed to enter the UK in this way. They must arrive as ‘manifest cargo’ which is a more expensive way to fly and incurs additional landing charges, too. It may also mean your pet can’t travel on the same flight as you.
If you land at a Paris, Brussels or Amsterdam airport instead of a London airport, we can collect your pets (and you) and bring them into the UK by road, travelling via Eurotunnel.
