Pet Travel Question: Choosing Pet-Friendly Airlines

Is there a good website that reviews/ranks specific airlines for history in moving pets as cargo? Just when I think I have figured out our dogs travel I Google and end up getting horror stories!

Are there any airlines that suggest to use/not use?


Hello Stephanie,

You’re right to place a lot of importance on this decision. Choosing a pet-friendly airline is one of the key parts of planning a successful pet move. We definitely prefer some airlines over others, as some have made an effort to follow pet-safe programs and made pet safety a priority.

We actually wrote a whole series of on our blog about pet-friendly airlines (hopefully you’ll take a look!), and for Australia we generally choose Qantas and Air New Zealand.

We’d be happy to offer more specialized advice to you if you need it—you can fill out our free quote form or give our office a call at your convenience. Good luck!
