Embargo Partially lifted on Brachycephalic Breeds

Qantas has added Petflyers to the list of Pet Travel Specialists who are authorised to ship Brachycephalic Breeds and we have completed the first shipments under the new regulations. At the moment they are only accepting bookings on flights between Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. We expect more Ports to be opened to these bookings at a later date.

Brachycephalic Pets must have a Special Vet Check before the flight and we will email the relevant paperwork to you. They must travel during Cooler Weather.

We are also required to have our Agent present at origin and destination to check the Pets so all bookings will be charged as a Door to Door Service and pick up and delivery will be included in our quote.

The following Breeds are subject to Brachycephalic rules;


Affenpinscher, American Bulldog, American Bully, Australian Bulldog, Boston Terrier, Boxer, Brussels Griffon, British/English Bulldog, Chow, Dogue de Bordeaux, Dutch Bulldog, French Mastiff, French Bulldog, Japanese Chin (Japanese Spaniel), King Charles Spaniel (English Toy Spaniel), Lhasa Apso, Neapolitan Mastiff,  Pekingese, Pug, Shih-tzu, Tibetan Spaniel, Valley Bulldog

Please call us for more details about your Pet’s Shipment.
