Transport of birds: It’s all about the crate
Choosing the right crate is very important. In principle, birds should be transported in a dimmed crate, as this helps calm them down and make the trip much more pleasant. The size of the crate and the attached water and food bowls must, of course, be adapted to your bird’s speciﬁc needs. In addition, the crate should allow for enough space for your bird’s tail, but not too much to ensure none of the feathers are broken or pulled out. The crate must also be made or modiﬁed according to the latest IATA guidelines. When transporting birds, some additional things must be considered. For example, you should not put all the food in the crate, as diﬀerent countries have diﬀerent requirements or prohibitions. Some countries only allow animals to enter with an import permit. In some other countries, it is compulsory for the pet owner to ﬂy as a passenger on the same aircraft. In general, no anesthetic should be administered and it should be researched which birds are protected species. In case your bird is listed under protected species, you should pay special attention to the export, customs and import regulations. This is the only way to ensure an entry with no issues.
We will ensure your pet’s pleasant and relaxed journey, with no unnecessary waiting times and with a good, all-round support - because at PetAir, we care!

I have sent a dog to the United States twice using PetAir…
… once in August 2016 and again now in January 2018. The service was excellent both times: every question has been answered promptly and competently, I have received all the relevant data (ﬂight numbers etc.) within 24 hours and of all the annoying paperwork, I have only had to deal with the absolutely necessary. The care of the dogs during the transportation was to the point. Given my experience, I can only recommend PetAir.
