Hi.i assume the dog is your own and not a rescue dog. It’s very easy. You need to get the passport done 21 days before the flight. Your vet can advise you on this. If you contact easy pet export Larnaca on 97897912 they will tell you everything you need to know and even come to your home to give you a quote. They do all the required paperwork and flight booking. They are also advertised in the Daxi magazine. They have a Facebook page and website. Very professional and caring.

If you search 'shipping and dog' on here you will see lots of threads.
Our experience was from the UK to Larnaca. If you fly with the animal as checked baggage you are only charged a relatively small amount that changes based on the airline and weight of the pet. You have to have the appropriate cage, waterers, labels etc but this is information is usually found on the airline's website or the IATA website. If you use a courier company the pet goes as cargo and is much more expensive. I think we were quoted around 2k for 3 dogs and a cat.

We flew with Aegean from Heathrow to Larnaca but I believe you cannot fly into Heathrow with them.

Here is their website which gives you some idea of prices and requirements.

I would say check and check again as we received lots of bum info from official people that should have been in the know.
Good luck.
Paul.

Hi

We shipped two dogs and two cats to the UK but they have to go as manifest cargo. There are different rules for sending animals to the UK which makes the cost a lot more - but they still go in the hold and everything else seems to be exactly the same. If you search the airline websites it says “except for the UK” in red - it is cheaper to send them anywhere else in Europe!

I can also thoroughly recommend Easypets - they kept us informed by text every step of the way and were extremely helpful and efficient. You can get the crate from them or use your own but you will need to check the size very carefully if you get your own.

We flew our pets with cobalt airways:-
