Petflyers is your one-stop shop for moving your furry friend to or from Western Australia. We understand that relocating your pet can be a stressful experience, which is why we offer a comprehensive range of services to make the process as smooth and comfortable as possible.
A Thriving Industry:
Petflyers is constantly bustling with activity, thanks to the high demand for pet relocation services in Western Australia. This is partly due to the limited number of breeders in the state, leading to a steady stream of puppies flying in from the Eastern states. Our team even jokes that all our rental crates seem to end up in being used Perth and require transport back East!

Important Considerations for Pet Transport in Perth:
1. Weather: Western Australia’s hot summers can pose a challenge for Perth Pet Transport. Airlines have the right to cancel pet bookings if the forecast temperature exceeds 35 degrees Celsius. This applies to the maximum temperature for the day, not just the time of your pet’s flight.
Recommendation: Avoid flying your pets during the hottest months (December to February) if possible. If you must relocate during this period, have a backup plan in case the airline cancels your booking due to extreme heat.
2. Aircraft Suitability: Not all aircraft used within Western Australia are suitable for pet travel. Qantas and Virgin operate some planes with non-air-conditioned cargo holds, which are not safe for transporting animals.
Recommendation: If you’re planning to travel on the same flight as your pet, call Petflyers to confirm the aircraft assigned to your flight is air-conditioned before booking your tickets.
