  • Travel with pets to Edinburgh Scotland from the USA

    I will be moving to Edinburgh Scotland around the last week of August or at the latest September 4th. I will be moving with a small dog and two cats. Does Icelandair allow the pets to have water in their cage when travelling and how much does it cost for pets? Or are there other airlines that are recommended. Thank you!

    Hello Emily - according to IATA regulations, a water/food bowl must be attached to the door of your pet's crate. We recommend getting the largest bowl you can find (like this one: http://www.pettravelstore.com/pet-crate-bowl/) and freeze the water the night before traveling to reduce spillage. In order to avoid having to file an import permit, your pets will need to fly into either Edinburgh or Glasgow on an airline approved to import live animals. For Edinburgh, your options are Air Canada, Etihad, KLM/Air France, Lufthansa, United or Qatar. For Glasgow, your options are United, KLM/Air France or Emirates. Just be mindful of the temperatures in your originating and along your route as your pets will be traveling as air cargo. The temperature should not exceed 85 degrees F anywhere along the route.
