Do you mean in the cabin? One way or return?

Other than trained and registered service animals, dogs aren't permitted to travel in the cabin if you're entering the UK

Have you checked the requirements eg certification, tests, vaccinations for each country?

You'll need to check each airlines websites. Some lowcost airlines only take service animals

I think the answer is likely to be no. Ryanair, Easyjet & Jet2 only accept assistance dogs in the cabin. Jet2 don’t mention dogs in the hold. TUI only small dogs in the cabin, no mention of hold.

Maybe BA via LHR, KLM via AMS?

If you are relocating then possibly use a pet relocation company.

It’s possible, you’ll need all the vaccines, microchip, fit to fly ( which is stupidly expensive). All this takes time. Make sure the dog container is at a suitable height and width.rabies and a blood test done if you plan on returning to the U.K.

Drive. We do it every year Lincolnshire to Seville & back. Either Portsmouth to Santander or Dover to Calais. Its better for the dog and you can have a holiday on the way to your holiday !!
