GAC UK launches pet transport service
ECS Group member Globe Air Cargo (GAC) UK has launched a new service, "PetCare by ECS Group", which transports pets by air to and from the UK. Managing director Michelle House: "The service means that we look after the pet as though it were part of our family too – with care."
GAC UK allows pets to travel on the same flight as their owners, in a heat-controlled environment. In addition, they advise customers of the documentation required for the country they are travelling to as per the Iata live animal regulations.
GAC UK sets itself apart from similar pet transport services: As the GSA for the airlines it represents (Gulf Air, Aero Mexico, TUI, Air Transat, Royal Brunei, Vietnam Airlines), it has preferential access to capacity and a closer relationship with airlines and handling agents. (ah)
