Pet Travel News: Approved Pet Flights to Edinburgh

It was previously announced that pets wishing to fly into Scotland will no longer have to be diverted to London or Manchester. A new facility at the Edinburgh airport accepts pets directly, making life much easier for Scotland-bound animals and their owners.

Travelers with specific questions about what routes are affected by this expansion now have an official document to reference. See below for the air routes approved by the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) as of Oct. 4, 2012.

Keep in mind that routes may change in the future, but for now this is a good guide for all pet travelers going to Edinburgh. As you can see, it's possible to gain entry to Edinburgh with pets via United Airlines, British Airways, KLM and Lufthansa.
