What are the advantages of pet friendly charter flights?
Private jets are the most luxurious way to travel, whether passengers are walking on four legs or not. When it comes to pet travel, while it can seem excessively indulgent, there many practical advantages to flying in a jet with your pet.
As airline seats continue to shrink, it’s more difficult to bring your pet with you inside the cabin of the aircraft. If your pet weighs more then 15 pounds or is taller than 12 inches, it will likely have to travel inside the aircraft’s cargo hold, depending on the commercial airline/plane. Although this cargo section is pressurized and temperature controlled, many travelers still have concerns about placing their pet in the cargo area of a commercial aircraft. You’re also entrusting the airline to properly handle your pets, and not leaving them in potentially dangerous or life-threatening situations.
When summer temperatures exceed 84 degrees F on the tarmac, most airlines won’t allow your pet to board and travel in the cargo section. When the thermostat drops below 45 degrees F in the winter, the same rules apply, and airlines won’t allow you to fly with your pet.
Number of Pets
Most commercial airlines limit the number of pets you can travel with, and the number is usually one per passenger. If you’re traveling with multiple pets, or your pets are flying unaccompanied, they will need to travel as checked baggage or as cargo.
Type of Pet or Breed
Some breeds are denied service by many airlines, including Persian cats, Bulldogs, Pugs and Shih-Tzus as they are prone to breathing problems at high altitudes while inside the cargo hold. Charter flights allow you to bring whoever or whatever you want!
Every country has different requirements regarding documentation, vaccinations, and other requirements. Some countries like like the UK will only allow pets to fly commercially as cargo, and won’t be allowed in the cabin. Our team will help you obtain all of the necessary paperwork and documentation for international travel wit your pet.
Peace of Mind
When flying with pets inside a charter plane, you won’t have to worry about placing your pet’s care in the hands of another. Whether you prefer keeping your pet in a travel crate to keep their claws off the upholstery, or want them to roam the cabin freely and playfully, your pets will be more comfortable, feel more relaxed, and suffer far less stress than commercial pet transportation.
