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!
