New Zealand and Canadian governments have an agreement to prioritise shipments of bees from NZ to Canada every year during bee season which runs from February until May 16 in 2019. This restricts the live animal bookings available on Air New Zealand during this time.
Pet Transport NZ work closely with Air New Zealand to respect our international obligations and national ecological priorities. We anticipate this annual period of restricted air travel by pre-booking AVI spaces that are not occupied by bee pallets to Canada on Air NZ and remain in constant dialogue with the airline to request extra spaces as they come available.
We also predict the influx of pets travelling to Canada during the summer months in New Zealand and are able to provide alternate routes with other airline carriers throughout bee season. Whilst some pet transporters may refuse bookings to Canada during the bee embargo period, we are confident in our ability to assist you and your pets during this time.
Diego the Rottweiler is booked to fly to Vancouver from Auckland Airport. This is testament to our ability to service Canadian destinations during a period of restricted air travel for live animals. If you need to travel to Canada with your pets between February and May either this year or next, we encourage you contact us as soon as possible to secure one of the limited space available.
Relocating pets from New Zealand this month has seen a whole lot of moving pets to Canada! August has been full of sending dogs to Canada, and some back again! So here are some of our favourite regular clients and furry friends plus some tips for shipping pets to Canada successfully!
Our biggest international pet transport clients this month were the MacDonald dogs, a team of working dogs we flew to Canada last month. Half the troupe of dogs had their contracts extended and remain in Canada working. The other half were sent back to Auckland to complete 10 days of quarantine together before going home to their farm.
Although return interntaional trips are not the norm at Pet Transport NZ, we are proud to be the world leaders in this pet travel field. Return flights for pets are not a common thing due to the added costs and logistical complications of 2 exports and reentry requirements into New Zealand. However, where there is a will there is a way! This is not the MacDonald dogs first return flights overseas from New Zealand with us. nor is it likely to be their last!
