Air New Zealand does not accept animal bookings directly from the public because of the complexity involved in completing the pre-flight documentation, civil aviation, animal welfare compliance and veterinary checks pertaining to domestic pet travel. We are Air New Zealand Approved Pet Transporters and as such we go through a formal registration and approval process so you can trust us to care for your pet's travel arrangements.

Feedback from clients who moved their pets within New Zealand.

Nelson – Hamilton
Hands down amazing from start to finish, Sarah was so helpful and so thorough, she explained everything and kept me up to date. Pixie arrived happy, safe and calm. I would recommend Hamilton pet transport to anyone wanting a wonderful experience. Thanks again Sarah and team from one happy puppy and family.

Highly recommend Sarah and Hamilton Pet Transport. Sarah was super friendly, professional and highly organised. We had never transported an animal before and was uncertain about the process. Sarah contacted the breeder, arranged the date, time, flight details. She met the breeder and puppy at the Hamilton airport, sent us a photo of our puppy once she had her and called with clear instructions re what to expect after she had flown. We also received a text after our puppy arrived to check everything was okay. Highly recommend to others.
