Virgin Blue Cancelling - Small animals Freight sign now

We wish to forward our concerns regarding Virgin Blue's recent directive immediately ceasing carriage either, as excess baggage or freight, of small animals on it's aircraft.

As responsible exhibitors, fanciers, judges, and breeders who, as Virgin Blue customers, move exotic rabbits around Australia, in pursuit of our hobby, we the undersigned request the service be reinstated. As prospective, current and past customers of Virgin Blue, we are concerned for the health and well being of our animals, we use approved pet packs to ensure safe arrival, and attempt not to endanger those baggage handling or the animals involved.

With Virgin Blue's new Company directive, prohibiting transport of small animals, besides cats and dogs, not only do Virgin Blue lose freight, but also our support and airfares as customers and travellers. We are disappointed to say the least, as Virgin Blue's service is reliable, safe, reasonably priced, and convenient to most.

Not only does this effect the rabbit hobby, but anyone exhibiting or breeding small animals. As hobbyists Australia wide, we're are now inconvenienced by this sudden change. We ask that you reconsider your directive, and restablish your much needed service to our hobby.

CEO Virgin Blue
