IAG Cargo has moved all LHR Live Animal Imports and Transits to the new Animal Aircare LHR facility.
From February 1st, 2023, all Live Animal collections will be at the new Animal Aircare LHR facility.
Taking advantage of paperwork pre-check will help prevent any non-commercial failures.
They will continue to collect the facility fees at origin, UK clearance/APHA and any additional applicable UK arrival fees will be collected locally as is done today.
There is NO longer any requirement to obtain a “LHR Slot”, so you can just book with the Sales agents. They will continue to need your UK clearing agent to provide the OK to Forward – no change to current process. There are no restrictions to days of the week so all weekend arrivals, including Sundays, are welcome.
Animal Aircare is located with both landside and airside access. This allows for much quicker delivery times direct from aircraft to the Animal Aircare LHR facility for UK clearance and collection. We are pleased to note that both pallet and bulk hold delivery times will be a welcome significant improvement.
