Documentation

You’ll need to show documentation for your service dog at the airport and on board the aircraft. A current service dog ID card, service dog accreditation or Jetstar approval letter is acceptable.

Dogs that are not approved for travel in the aircraft cabin can't travel with Jetstar as we do not have pressurised cargo facilities.

International Flights

It’s your responsibility to check the service dog restrictions in the countries you’re travelling to. Those restrictions may include the uplift, transit, disembarkation, inoculation and quarantine of the service dog.
