The origin of Airpets stretches back over 50 years, when Mr John Woodward, a farmer, established Airpets with a small number of boarding kennels. Following the introduction of the Rabies Act 1974 and located so close to Heathrow, the kennels were then used to provide animal accommodation to meet the quarantine requirements. The increasing demand for people bringing their pets to the UK led to further expansion of the kennels, providing larger and more comfortable facilities for all types of domestic animals.
Our Heathrow Site
All of our facilities can be found together at one site, immediately opposite to Heathrow Terminal 5. Our prime location is essential to minimising the amount of time that pets spend in their Sky Kennels, making their journey as short and stress-free as possible. Should a flight be delayed or cancelled, your pet can stay with us in a more comfortable environment until their flight is due to board.
Our facilities at Heathrow include a 5* cattery and generously sized heated kennels. Here we can take care of your pet before they leave for the airport or after their arrival. Our experienced and compassionate kennel staff are joined by a local vet each day, to ensure the animals we look after are healthy and happy at all times.
Airpets dedicated pet travel consultants are also based on-site, allowing them to have personal contact with the pets they help to move. From our offices we are able to manage the entire relocation process so that your pet’s journey is organised both quickly and efficiently.
