Pets on Jets - dogs on charter aircraft steps


Your pet is more than just an animal you need to feed, for most of us, our pets are true members of the family.  You wouldn’t risk putting your kids or your parents in the luggage compartment of a commercial jet, so why risk your pet?  Luckily, Navair agrees – we love working with you and your pets to ensure safe and comfortable journeys for both you and your whole family.

Our experienced customer service specialists will craft bespoke travel experiences for you and your pets, ensuring – for the end to end journey – they never leave your side. Fly to anywhere in Australia with your dog or cat on board, right there in the cabin of your private jet; enjoying the same comforts as you from take-off to landing.

Not only is a private jet charter the safest way to travel with pets, it is the only way you can travel with them on board with you. Commercial airlines require pets to travel in a locked crate, inside the dark, noisy and often either extremely hot or extremely cold baggage compartment of a passenger jet – and sometimes even on a completely separate plane to you!

It doesn’t just have to be cats and dogs either – we’ve travelled with all kinds of pets including birds and reptiles. No matter how unique your pet is, our experienced team can make sure not only your trip is one to remember, but also one your pet won’t easily forget (unless they’re a goldfish 🙂 ).

Call our experienced customer service team on 1300 759 722 or email us on to talk through your furry friends requirements or to take a tour of our facilities. 

We’ve also put together a helpful list of Frequently Asked Questions here.
