Pets & Animals

Air Chathams is happy to carry your pets and animals under the following conditions.

All animals (dogs, cats and other pets) are to be properly and securely caged with appropriate absorbent material lining the base of the cage.

Please prebook your live animal or pet’s travel between any of our scheduled destinations by calling 0800 580 127.

 

  • The transport cage or box is appropriate for the animal carried, able to be locked and leak-proof.
  • The carriage of the live animal is part of the checked luggage allowance when accompanying a passenger and so may incur additional luggage charges.
  • If a live animal is carried without an accompanying passenger, standard freight rates will be charged per kilogram plus a handling fee of $25.00 per animal.
  • Live animals must be checked in as freight or as part of a checked luggage allowance prior to the flight and collected on arrival.
  • Pets and other live animals are unable to be held overnight at any Air Chatham premises.
