Canberra to Napier, New Zealand
Hi Jasmine & Rachael, Thank you so much for transporting Alfi from Canberra to Napier. He arrived last night and has settled in very quickly with his new housemates Bailey ( pictured below) and Brandy. Coming from Canberra Alfi hasn’t seen a lot of the beach so he enjoyed the Napier waterfront on a big walk this morning. Very impressed with the service received by Jetpets. Many thanks Anouschka x

Thank you so much for all of your help and encouragement, it means a lot. Melanie, thank you for being so responsive & helpful and always helping sure we had the right info and got booked on the right flight together. To everyone else; the Handlers, the vets and the office and admin staff, you blew us away with your attentiveness, live updates, photos & info our dogs wellbeing.

Did you know?

  • The captain of the aircraft is aware that your loved one is on board their flight
  • The captain will set the temperature to approx. 18 degrees Celsius so that the animals are comfortable
  • The pets’ cabin is dimly lit so that your loved one can see what is going on around them
  • What we feel and hear in the cabin of the plane is the same as what animals experience (except in a travel crate they have much more leg room than us!)
