Air Hamburg has become the first charter operator to be approved to fly with pets into all 16 entry airports in the UK, after receiving London Heathrow approval last month.

Flying together with pets in the aircraft cabin is said to be an important reason why passengers choose to fly privately, which led Air Hamburg to invest two years of work into the project.

Animals are only permitted to arrive at specific airports approved by the UK government. In addition, each individual aircraft operator must seek approval from each airport to arrive with pets. The process requires careful auditing to ensure that the operator adheres to the highest standards.

Algernon Trotter, VP of sales, comments: “Our pet-loving clients flying to the UK represent a significant portion of the 60,000 passengers we fly annually. We wanted to provide maximum flexibility to these clients and we think that this unrivalled network of pet-approved UK airports is a great way to offer that.”
