Travelling with Animals

Customers travelling on a commercial flight with their pets need to arrange transportation with the airline they are travelling with. Currently, Qantas and Virgin aircraft are equipped to carry animals.


The animal drop-off and collection point for animals travelling on Virgin flights is Virgin Cargo, currently located at 102 Holyman Avenue (next to Rotor-Lift).


For animals travelling on Qantas flights the drop-off and collection point is the Qantas Freight Building, located on the corner of Long and Johnson Streets.


Customers are advised that there may be biosecurity import requirements relating to bringing pets, wildlife and livestock into Tasmania. The Biosecurity Tasmania website provides customers with further information on importing animals into Tasmania:
