Customer Feedback:

Glen & Doug
Sydney to Christchurch, New Zealand
I could not say a nicer word about Jetpets! They were absolutely wonderful during our recent move from Sydney to NZ. The move itself was stressful enough for us, but knowing that both our cat and dog were well looked after made it so much easier. Jetpets are with you every step of the way and always super friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for getting Glen and Doug to their new home, that was really the most important part of the move to us! 🙂
Han Solo
Sydney to Christchurch, New Zealand
I was very happy with the service Jetpets provided for our cat Han Solo to travel from Sydney to New Zealand. Justin was more than happy to answer my thousands of questions which made for stressless travel. I was sent a photo of him having a snuggle with one of the staff before departing from Sydney which was a cute gesture. The collection process was super easy and Han Solo cage had been cleaned and refreshed before we collected him. Han Solo is now living his best life in New Zealand with us.

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

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!)
