We provide professional pet relocation services by air for both domestic and international travel using pet friendly airways and we thoroughly investigate any requirements for importation to a foreign country.
We personally make pet deliveries to and pick ups from Newark & JFK airports. Additionally, through a network of other professional pet shippers, we can make arrangements for out of state shipments. We’re well known for providing safe and hassle-free pet shipping. Whenever possible, we use direct non-stop flights to reduce the length of travel, especially for overseas moves. We use crates made by Petmate Pro/Skykennel, manufacturers of the safest and strongest shipping crates for air travel, which pet friendly airlines readily accept. They meet all IATA recommendations and requirements. While there are less expensive shipping crates available, they tend to open unexpectedly and can be less safe.

Many people worry about the safety of air travel. Nearly two million pets a year are shipped, according to airline estimates. Each year a few well-publicized accidents detract from that fact. Actual airline industry statistics reported to the government account for fewer than 50 animal injuries or deaths per year. Often accidents happen because of poor planning, improper containers, or other human error; sometimes things are truly an accident with no one person to blame. Most deaths are a result of a pre-existing medical condition or from sedation of the pet. Professional pet transporters like us meet all regulations and use the highest quality products available. Using a pet relocation service is not the least expensive alternative, but often can be the best choice.
Past terrorist events have prompted strict guidelines from the government for shipping cargo. Pet owners may not be able to ship their pets themselves or travel with them as excess baggage. Some airlines and countries will require pets be shipped as cargo through a pet transportation company which has an established account with the carrier. We like to establish an appropriate client relationship with you prior to shipment. This includes identification information, credit information and a contract between the Airborne Animals LLC and you. In general, a week’s notice is the minimum amount of time required to adequately set up a move domestically, and 2 weeks for an international move. You will be paying cargo costs plus the fees for services of the transporter. In most cases this will be significantly more than taking pets as excess baggage or sending them yourself.
