Virgin Australia Pet Policy

Virgin Australia understands that pets are an important part of many families. However, when it comes to traveling with pets, there are certain restrictions and guidelines that need to be followed. Here is what you need to know about Virgin Australia's pet policy.

Unfortunately, pets are not permitted to travel in the cabin with Virgin Australia. This means that you cannot bring your furry friend with you in the passenger cabin during your flight. While this may be disappointing for pet owners, it is important to ensure the safety and comfort of all passengers onboard.

If you need to transport your pet, Virgin Australia does offer the option to transport them in the cargo hold. However, this can only be done through an International Pet and Animal Transportation Agent. These agents are experienced in handling the transportation of animals and will ensure that your pet is well taken care of during the journey.

Guidance, Tips, & info on Airlines and Airports

When transporting your pet in the cargo hold, you have two options. You can either travel on the same flight as your pet or send them on their own. The choice is yours, depending on what works best for you and your pet.

For more information on fees and restrictions associated with transporting pets in the cargo hold, you can contact Virgin Australia at 800-828-6822 if your pet is flying from the US, or 800-016-742 if your pet is originating in Australia. The Virgin Australia team will be able to provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding your specific situation.

It is important to note that air carriers can change their pet policies at any time. Therefore, it is always recommended to check directly with Virgin Australia before you book your flight to ensure that you have the most accurate and up-to-date information.
