Are there any additional fees when flying private with your pet?

No, of course not, we’re not an airline!

You are welcome to bring your pet(s) along with you when flying private under the Access by Airly program at no extra charge.

This is of course on the provision your pets fit safely into the Cessna Citation Mustang cabin!

Some tips to make travelling with your pet stress-free

  1. Make sure you bring an IATA-approved travel carrier with you. Although we’ll allow most pets out of the cage once onboard they are still required to be contained before boarding and upon landing. No one wants to be chasing an escapee on the tarmac.
  2. Bring along a blanket or bed that has a familiar scent. This will help reduce the natural anxiety experienced by most pets in unfamiliar environments.
  3. Make sure your pet is hydrated and has had plenty of opportunity to expel some energy and empty their bladder so there’s no mishaps at 35,000ft.

Aside from that, enjoy how simple it is travelling with your furry family members.

Airlines believe your pet and luggage are one and the same

In December the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), Australia’s aviation regulator, passed legislation allowing for the transport of pets in the cabin of commercial aircraft.

As a note, assistance dogs have always been allowed on board.

A moved welcomed by pet owners alike, but realistically, none of Australia’s airlines have moved to change their policies.

Qantas and Jetstar turned a blind eye to the change, giving it no further thought.

Virgin and Rex said they’ll explore the option. Subtly flagging new revenue opportunities. Virgin even ran a poll on Facebook resulting in 68% of respondents voting in favour of allowing pets onboard.

Although we’re your pet’s biggest fans, we’re not quite sure what it would be like flying in a cabin full of anxious cats and dogs.

The good news is, your beloved furry family member is welcome on all Access by Airly flights.

Pet on Private Jet

There’s no additional fees to pay, just allow another 5-10mins for your pilot and ground staff to admire them.

It was our pet-friendly policy that resulted in Ally and Joey signing up to the program, ensuring little Ollie could travel with them stress-free.

šŸ¾ Pets on Private Jets: Memberships for four legged family members

Did you know you can take your pets on private jets.

We’re extending our private jet membership programs to include your four legged family members.

2020 and 2021 have seen a large number of interstate relocations.  And thanks to border restrictions the reduction in commercial flights have seen four legged family members get left behind.

We continue to hear heartbreaking stories of furry family members being stranded due to hotel quarantine requirements or the huge backlog experienced by animal transport providers.

So we’re in the process of enabling your pets to also be included into theĀ SHAREDĀ andĀ ACCESSĀ program free of charge.
