Book a flight and have a furry friend waiting for you when you board.
As part of our goal to make flight search super simple and provide travellers with the most options, Cheapflights is launching a new cat flights filter. With the rising popularity of cat cafes, cat bars and cat-friendly flights around the world, it’s easier than ever to enjoy a little kitten companionship while travelling.
And the benefits are pretty purrsuasive. From promoting happiness to easing stress felt by nervous fliers, select flights offering onboard cats make flying more enjoyable than ever before. Cheapflights is the first flight comparison site to offer this search functionality, making it easier than ever to search for available cat flights. Talk about an unfurrgetable getaway.
How to find a cat flight
Simply search for flights as you normally would on Cheapflights.com.au and click the “cat flights only” option to find available cat flights on your chosen route.
Now, you can find all available cat flights in one place. Does it get any simpler than that?
Why choose a cat flight?
While this may seem obvious to some (all the cats to play with), the benefits of taking a cat flight are rooted in science. Time spent with pets has been shown to increase happiness and lower stress.
Studies show interacting with a cat can improve your mood, making long-haul flights less tedious. Petting an animal releases endorphins and other feel-good brain chemicals including dopamine and oxytocin, having a calming and uplifting effect, reducing anxiety and relieving stress. Nervous flyers can put down that glass of wine and pick up a furry friend instead.
With all the benefits, it’s no wonder more and more airlines are embracing this feline-forward trend. With new cat-friendly routes being added all the time and Cheapflights’ new cat flight search functionality, you can easily sort your flight results to find available cat flights from your departure point.
