Dogs do well at Cambridge

ExecuJet has launched what is claimed to be the UK’s first free travel service for pets at Cambridge Airport. 

The complimentary pet handling service will enable domestic cats and dogs to travel internationally, without quarantine and overseas vet inspection.  ExecuJet and Cambridge Airport are now approved by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) for the UK’s Pet Travel Scheme (PETS).

New regulations introduced this year bring PETS fully into line with EU regulations; cats and dogs coming from the EU and certain non-EU countries will no longer require a post-vaccination blood test and the pre-entry waiting period will be reduced from six months to 21 days.

Under PETS, the team at Cambridge Airport will check the pet’s passport, travel credentials and microchip, with the owner or the pet’s escort in the cabin.  Once the paperwork has been cleared and stamped as required, the pet will be free to disembark.
All applications to bring a pet into the UK under PETS regulations must be emailed to the ExecuJet Cambridge pet handling team at least 24 hours before flight departure. www.execujet.net
