Once we have all pets booked and confirmed on our flight, we collectively shift the PEQ bookings for each pet to match the incoming flight date or the next available date given by the facility based on their availability to accept the group. This guarantees that all pets secure the same arrival date into PEQ.
To avoid import complications whilst transitting through countries to/from Australia and New Zealand, ALL pets must stay on board during any fuel stops. Refuelling at each stop will take approximately 45-60 minutes.
