AIRCARGO ASIA-PACIFIC • August-September, 2018 • Page 19 EMIRATES Pets, which promises a conven- ient and comfortable air transportation experience for do- mestic pets, builds on Emirates SkyCargo’s existing capabilities to transport pet ani- mals on its flights and offers new features such as door to door transportation as well as booking return flights for pets. With Emirates Pets, which is the entry level solution, the carrier will offer airport to airport trans- portation for pets, but the pest’s owner will be responsible for completing all the required pa- perwork and clearances needed for the transport of the pet from one country to another. To round out its offering, the airline has now inked a deal with Dubai-based Snoopy Pets to offer a new premium door to door transportation service branded Emirates Pets Plus, across 16 markets. Under its premium service, the complete logistics of transport- ing the pet, including filing all the required documentation, taking the pet for any required veteri- nary checks and transporting the pet to and from the airport, will be managed by Snoopy Pets on behalf of the customer and the airline. The markets where this service is available are Bahrain, Brazil, Cyprus, France, Germany, Ire- land, Italy, Malaysia, Netherlands, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, UAE and UK. With the new service, owners wishing to take their pets with them on extended holidays also have the option of booking a return flight for their pets with Emirates SkyCargo. Over the last two years, the car- rier has transported over 11,000 domestic pets - mostly dogs and cats on its flights.
