South African Airways carry all breeds out of Heathrow and offer direct services to JNB with connections to Cape Town, East London, Port Elizabeth and Durban. They use evening flights which is very handy for clients who want to meet us at the airport with their pet and this is beneficial to the travelling dogs as it mimics their natural sleeping patterns meaning they will be more likely to settle and relax for the duration of the flight. We always get a very good service from SAA and would recommend them as a great option both for direct flights and for connections when we want to send pets on to other African destinations such as Entebbe.

Your dog, cat or bird will fly in the cargo hold during the flight inside a secure travel kennel. All travel kennels are secured to ensure your pet has a comfortable journey and is kept safe even during take off, set down and turbulence. The South African Airways staff are professional, experienced and will look after your pet throughout its journey on their Airline.
