Townsville to Adelaide, Australia
I wasn't exactly sure who to write to because so many people at JetPets helped Baylor get to me safely! I was really anxious about him flying to me so young--on the very day he turned 8 weeks! But you were all so amazing. I was so glad that you checked the weather and kept an eye on that for him, and then rearranged the flights to make it a more comfortable journey. And I was surprised myself at the relief I felt when I got the report card from his stopover in Brisbane! It was such a relief to know that he was happy and content--as well as friendly! When I picked him up in Adelaide, he was so chilled and happy--he obviously enjoyed his flight! He licked me all over and knew I was his mum straight away. He's settled into his new home so quickly, and is so delightful. Sorry to be going on so much, but I'm totally in love with him, and I'm so grateful to all of you for looking after him so he could come home!
All best wishes,
Adelaide to Newcastle, Australia

Melbourne to Perth, Australia
Big shout out to the team at Jetpets for the transportation of my little jack russell Milly from Melbourne to Perth . I'm more than happy with your service guys, thank you so much!
Brisbane to Sydney, Australia
Thanks Jetpets for getting my new puppy home safe and sound to us! I missed him being dropped off home by about 5 mins, but my kids and husband were home to receive him. He was in good spirits and happy little puppy (albeit a little tired – no doubt a big day for a 9-week-old pup travelling from QLD to NSW!). The whole process from start to finish was so easy and I was kept informed via text at all times of his movements. I called the customer service people twice on his travel day as I had some questions - Once to confirm what time he'd be dropped to my home and the 2nd was to double check how far from my home they were so I had a better ETA on his arrival. Both times the customer service staff were friendly and helpful and I really appreciated Lara (2nd call) making the effort to contact the driver to find out a more exact time for my puppy, Rubble, to arrive.

Brisbane to Perth, Australia
Hi, I would like to say a massive thankyou to Jetpets for organising the flights and having my 3 pups safely delivered from Brisbane to Perth today! Jetpets were more than happy to help with any enquires I had and had a speedy reply. I definitely would recommend using this company for any future pet flights you may have. Not only are they great and fairly priced but they try their hardest to keep not only the pets safe and calm but also are there just as much to reassure their owners in what can be a stressful time. I definitely would use their services again! Picture of puppies happy as Larry after a 5.5 hour flight today!

Puppy Transport FAQs
Q: My new puppy is coming from interstate. Can they be transported on a plane?
Yes, it is very common for a puppy to be transported by plane from their breeder or rescue organisation to their new family based interstate. Jetpets cares for puppy travellers each and every day.
Simply call a Jetpets pet travel consultant on 1300 668 309 to step you through the process and provide a quotation.
Q: Is it safe for a puppy to fly?
At Jetpets our sole focus and expertise is providing the safest and most comfortable pet travel. Our team of pet loving experts includes Pet Travel Consultants, Resident Vets and Pet Handlers, and we safely and comfortably transport in excess of 60,000 pets every year.
The most direct travel route will be selected for your puppy through one of our reputable airline partners being Qantas or Virgin Australia. Your puppy will travel in the pet cabin which is air pressured, climate controlled and dimly lit, just like the main cabin. They will enjoy some extra leg room in their travel crate, which is securely fastened to avoid movement. The captain is aware that your puppy is on the flight and as soon as the flight lands, your puppy will be offloaded from the plane and checked on straight away.
Puppies tend to nap during flight which generally means that they’ll have endless energy when they meet their new fur-parents!
Q: How old does a puppy have to be to fly in Australia?
Your puppy will need to be a minimum age of 8 weeks old on the day of their flight. To fly at the age of 8 weeks to 12 weeks, your Jetpets pet travel consultant will ask you to supply a fit-to-fly certificate. A veterinarian will be able to provide you with the fit-to-fly certificate which acknowledges that your puppy is fit and healthy to fly. Important note – the certificate must be dated within 14 days of your puppy’s flight date.
If your puppy is aged 12 weeks or older, you do not require a fit-to-fly certificate.
Q: Do I need to provide my puppy’s microchip details?
Yes, you will be required to provide your puppy’s microchip details before they fly. Generally, all puppies are microchipped between the age of 8 to 12 weeks of age by the breeder or rescue organisation.
You can provide your puppy’s microchip details at the time of making your Jetpets booking, or if it is not yet available simply call us with their microchip details before they travel.
Quite often puppy siblings travel on the same flight so our pet handlers identify and confirm your puppy’s identityby scanning their microchip and cross-referencing our records. It is okay if the puppy is not registered in your name upon arrival, but it is critical that you provide the correct microchip number.
Q: How much does it cost to fly a puppy?
Interstate puppy transport is very affordable and the cost differs depending on the size of the puppy and the travel scenario. As you can imagine puppies come in all shapes and sizes, and their unique size determines which crate best suits. The cost of air travel also varies depending on the travel route and the level of service you require, e.g. a transit lounge service or door to door service. Your Jetpets Pet Travel Consultant will provide you with a customised itinerary and quotation for your puppy.
