Pet Transport NZ had dozens and dozens of wonderful cats and dogs enter from all over Aotearoa to win an IATA compliant travel crate. Our esteemed international pet transport consultants aka judges had to take some time to deliberate amongst themselves to choose our finalists. Points were awarded for clear demonstration of the pet's personality and of course dashing good looks. Being a photography competition, humans were also awarded points for clear photos in great lighting.
Congratulations to all our winners and a big thank you to all our wonderful pet loving community to entered for themselves or rescues and fosters they wanted to help. It was our pleasure to share our passion for safe pet transport with all of you and thank you for inviting new members into our group. Happy travelling pet fam!
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.
