KLM Pet Travel

KLM Pet Shipping Service

KLM is a great airline for many destinations via Amsterdam that are not covered by other airlines, such as Shanghai during the summer months and also various African destinations.

KLM and Air France have a very quick and efficient booking process, very high welfare standards and a brilliant safely record.

They will carry snub nosed puppies up to 6 months of age, but not once they are older. This is because it takes puppies this long to develop the upper airway breathing problems associated with BOAS (Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome), so they consider puppies to be at low risk of developing problems during the flight.

KLM Pet Export Information

The height restriction for travel kennels delivered to Heathrow is only 33 inches, so this restricts us with some breeds, but if necessary, we are able to use a Martinair freighter out of London Stansted to Amsterdam where all of their big planes fly onwards to the many destinations covered by this airline.

KLM actually own the transit facility in Amsterdam, will feed the pets if the comfort stop is long enough and will also exercise dogs on a grassed area to ensure they are likely to relive themselves.

KLM are also partnered with Air France, so we are able to use routes via Paris that are not offered by other airlines such as Reunion. Again, we have good options for transiting pets in Paris, including an agent who can collect pets from one aircraft, give them a rest in a secure kennel or cattery unit and then deliver out to the onwards flight.
