What is a “third Party shipper” some websites refer to?
A “third party shipper” is terminology made up by a very few disgruntled pet shippers who feel that other pet transporters should only work in their own backyard, and not make or receive shipments in other locales. This is not a term used industry-wide.

In reality, many corporations hold contracts with one pet transport company. They do not want to deal with dozens of pet shippers internationally. Therefore one pet agent makes the arrangements to move pets from place to place even if the move is not within their city or state, or country. Many of us, even without corporate contracts, do the same thing. Since there is a network of us around the world, and we all work together. So my company does not need to be in your city or state to make the arrangements for a shipment. Airborne Animals LLC can use a local agent who will handle the physical movement of your pet, and to supply the shipping crate if needed, while we will handle the airline arrangements, security forms, & the agent on the receiving end.

Keep in mind the media always focus on the bad things in life. In reality, airline reports show fewer than 30 animal injuries or deaths in an average year. Compare that to the statistic of over a million and half pets flying per year; it means on a fraction of one percent ever have a problem. In reality, most problems are caused by good intentioned pet owners who do not know about shipping pets. Using an inexpensive crate for example, creates a bigger chance of escape than using a heavier more expensive model; flimsier plastic kennels are more likely to have doors that pop open.
The majority of pets who become ill or die usually have an underlying health issue that was either undiagnosed or ignored.Airborne Animals LLC can supply an appropriate shipping crate for your pet bird’s travel. Although a crate can be custom made from wood, it must then meet international requirements for wooden containers. More frequently, we modify a cat or dog crate to meet the IATA requirements for a bird container. These work perfectly for budgies, cockatiels, parrots and most other pet bird species.
