Options for pet air travel are extremely limited at this time and it is unclear when travel will begin to normalize. Our PenderAIR team is closely following the changing regulations and requirements to ensure we continue to provide the highest level of service for our clients and their pets.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you are planning on traveling with your pet, as some destinations may require additional time to prepare requirements and/or may be impossible at this time. Due to high volume, we are responding to all new requests in order of travel date.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

You book your flight and call your airline to arrange for your pet’s travel. Then you realize how much is involved with pet travel and the steep learning curve that comes with it.
More and more often airlines are looking out for their pet customers by requiring their families to make their booking through IPATA (International Pet and Animal Travel Association) members, like PenderAIR.
While this may seem like an extra step in an already stressful and hectic schedule, there is good reason for this requirement. No one wants to arrive with their traveling pet only to discover one seemingly small piece of the pet travel puzzle has been missed or the required documents are out of date by just one day.
Traveling with pets to and from foreign countries is complicated. PenderAir assists clients and their valued pets in arranging for safe and smooth travel from start to finish. The PenderAir Team is well versed in the ins and outs of the travel and health requirements of both airlines and various nations.
The PenderAir team is well versed in these diverse requirements and is able to navigate them on behalf of you and your pet.
Airlines began to require professional pet travel agents in order to save all travelers from grave disappointment due to innocent errors and ever changing conditions. Early planning combined with critical timing will make both your travel and your pet’s travel a lot less stressful.
