Pet travel with Qantas Freight

We understand your pet is an important member of the family and, just like people, pets need to enjoy their travel experience on Qantas.

For most pet breeds, Qantas Freight offers an accompanied pet rate which is available when your pet is travelling on the same Qantas domestic flight as you.

Booking pet and animal transport

If you want your pet to travel on your flight, we suggest you make your pet's booking prior to making your own flight booking as the number of pet containers allowed on an aircraft is limited and there are some restrictions regarding the flights pets can travel on due to aircraft type. Qantas Freight also offers a service for unaccompanied pet and animal travel, so your pet or animal can fly even when you’re not travelling. This service is ideal when you need to send your pet to stay with family or friends interstate.

Please note that only Service Dogs can be carried into the passenger cabin of the aircraft. All other animals and pets travel in a special area in the hold of a passenger aircraft where the temperature and noise is similar to those experienced in the cabin.
