Want to take your pet abroad?

The Pet Travel Scheme, offered by the UK Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA), allows cats and dogs to travel between some countries and UK airports, without the need for quarantine. If you are going away for a long period of time and want to take your pet abroad from East Midlands Airport, we have listed a few companies that can help you with this.
