(IPATA - International Pet And Animal Transportation Association)
Airsupply Shipping (Passportforpets.co.uk) has been a member of IPATA for many years because this organisation is dedicated to the safe, worldwide transport of pets which is our ethos. We cooperate with many other IPATA members worldwide to ensure the efficient remote handling of your pets. We share IPATA's views on the care and welfare of all animals whilst being shipped (sometimes very long distances), from one home to a new one.
For the many years (now 30+) we have been shipping pets, we have built up a wealth of experience and many worldwide contacts which we sometimes use to assist us with resolving remote logistical issues. Some airlines will only allow pet shipping on their flights through an IPATA approved agent such as ourselves. Clearly airlines do not have the resources to check out every pet transport operator which is why they rely on an organisation such as IPATA who impose a strict standard of member's conduct, which we view as the minimum conduct level. Our aim is quite simple: 'to provide a safe, caring and reliable pet transport relocation service for our many customers, worldwide'.
To minimise pet discomfort during any long distance flight, the shipping kennel (or pet carrier) must be of sufficient size and include water bowls and a funnel to be IATA (International Air Transport Association) compliant (we comply with all pet shipping regulators). It is for these reasons that we ask for pet measurements on our online pet shipping quotation form so that we can ensure we include an adequate kennel in our quotation.
