We’re often asked by our clients if their pets are welcome aboard their private jet in the cabin. And the answer is of course that they are. When you fly on a commercial, scheduled airline, then you must either leave your pet behind or the pet must go in the hold of the aircraft. This can be a very traumatic experience for the pet, and a private jet charter can alleviate the issues surrounding pet travel by allowing your pet to fly with you in the cabin.
We are able to handle all the relevant documentation for travelling with pets, all you have to do is inform us of your pet travel requirements when booking your flight. One thing to keep in mind is that different countries have different regulations regarding pet travel. We can liaise with the relevant authorities and agencies to help ensure your flight booking is handled as smoothly as possible.
Many FBO’s at airports (these are the companies that “handle” your flight at each airport you use) are able to provide services for pets, and many have staff trained in handling pets safely and in a way that ensures your pet is kept calm and happy. The government in the UK also has a PETS travel scheme that allows your pets to travel with you to other EU countries without quarantine, providing your pet meets the rules and regulations.
