Planning & Booking
Dangerous goods are items that could jeopardise the safety of an aircraft or people on board.
Dangerous goods are also known as restricted articles, hazardous materials and dangerous cargo. Their carriage on Jetstar aircraft is primarily governed by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority Regulations.
Jetstar and Qantas follow the same dangerous goods policy.
