It is important that any pet travelling is in the correct size travel crate. If the crate is too small, your dog or cat may be very uncomfortable which may result in them being sore and stiff on arrival. For the welfare of the animals, airlines are very strict in ensuring that the dog or cat be able to stand in a natural position and be able to turn around and lay down comfortably. If your pet cannot do this, the Virgin Australia Cargo may simply refuse to transport your animal. It is for this reason that we ensure that your pet is travelling in the correct crate.
