Thumbs down Gutted ! Air transat are no longer taking pets!

Air Transat told my hubby (Bob aka Snowman) that as of last week they are no longer taking pets!

Adds £900 to the bill:curse: :curse: to go with Air Canada!

Anyone know of another courier?

Just typical after I have just bought cat boxes to transport them in. Does this mean we will have to pay a fortune for a pet transport company to take them, as Air Canada don't fly direct from Manchester to Calgary, and I don't fancy having to take two kids and two cats via Heathrow.

I hope that means they are no longer taking bookings for pets - we're flying with them on 21 May with 3 dogs and have bookings (at least we hope we still do!)

We're flying with Zoom and our cat is (hopefully!) on the same flight through Jet Set Pets. Manchester to Calgary, including the travel box for her was £418 for June.

Out of interest are you using a company to transport your cat?
