        Aer Lingus does fly the route non-stop, and they do accept pets in cargo, however, they may require that an agent book the transport.

            Who told you that you needed an agent in Germany?

              Cargo reservations of aerlingus. I questioned it and he got back to me to say he had made a mistake. Do you know if I was to get an agent in the UK can I still travel on the same flight or will the dog be stuck in UK for a couple of days?

                When a pet travels as manifest cargo, there is no way of knowing whether it will travel with you until the day of the flight when the manifest is made. It depends on the demands of the cargo area. You should be able to find out the day you travel.

                  Thanks for info but the reason I was flying to the UK was to travel with the dog.The first leg is no problem Malta to Uk then its very difficult.I contacted two agents and neither have got back to me as yet.

                    If you are looking to keep your pet's transport under the rules of the Pet Travel Scheme, then you can travel within 5 days of your pet's transport. The airlines will not hold your pet any longer than they have to, and there is a good chance that your dog will travel on the same plane as you will, but it is not guaranteed.
