This work discloses similarity properties of a high-aspect-ratio pulsating jet with lateral confinement exhibiting axis switching in a region close to the jet exit. The analysis is conducted separately within the major and minor planes of the jet source. The similarity relations derived from the in-plane flow equations are combined with experimental data collected in a recent three-dimensional velocimetry study of a glottal-like jet. Empirically, non-collapsing profiles are shown to rescale as collapsing profiles in the similarity variables within ranges of the streamwise coordinate, which are determined by the analysis. The similarity properties are shown to be useful to make predictions on the jet axis-switching characteristics.
