Travelling with Pets

Your furry friend is welcome aboard Sunair flights. Here's what you need to know..

Who is travelling?

Traveler information for animals:

Dogs under 10kg can be carried on the lap of the person booking at no extra charge. Please note, the weight of the dog becomes part of the passengers luggage allowance. If you dog weighs 10kg, your luggage allowance is now 5kg. Excess luggage fees apply for anything over 15kg.

Dogs between 10-20kgs, these may sit at your feet if not too large. There is a $65 fee (per flight) for dogs within this weight range. 

Dogs over 20kg we ask that you purchase a Childs fare ($120-$250) so that we can make allowance for their weight aboard. These dogs can either sit at your feet or on the seat next to you, if room allows.

*All dogs are required to be on a leash unless they are in a crate. If your dog is not a good traveler or quite energetic, we ask that you place them in a crate for the safety and comfort of all on board. There is currently no provision to book pets on our online system. Please call us to advise you will be bringing your pet so we can ensure your booking is noted correctly.

Other Animals
If you require passage for other animals, they need to be in a crate or box with standard pricing per weight as above.

Unaccompanied Animals
All unaccompanied animals are at a flat rate of $95 per animal/crate (we will combine pricing for smaller animals). We will send you a waiver/release form to fill out prior to the flight. Unaccompanied animals must be in a box or crate so that they can not roam freely aboard the aircraft.
