British Airways World Cargo offers new option for unaccompanied pets.
British Airways World Cargo has announced that it will be enabling customers to send dogs, cats and ferrets unaccompanied into London's Gatwick Airport from approved non-European origins.
According to the airline it has been working with the animal health division of the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) in order to gain approval for these animals to be carried as part of the Pets Travel Scheme and cleared at the Gatwick animal reception centre (ARC) without their owners travelling with them.
Unaccompanied cats, dogs and ferrets will now be accepted at the ARC between 07:30 and 17:00 on weekdays for veterinary inspection. Pets will then be kept at the reception centre until collected by their owners.
