Pet Friendly Private Jet Charter
There are so many ways to travel with pets. Driving, cruise ships, commercial air travel, and if you can afford it, a pet friendly private jet charter just for you and your furry friends.
Of course, the cost for a private jet is substantially more expensive than the alternatives. Keep in mind, you are reserving the entire plane just for your flight, on your schedule, and you have your very own private pilots. This does come at a cost. Every trip is different depending on the duration of the flight, how many passengers are flying and the size and number of pets accompanying you.
It will certainly be a trip not soon to be forgotten; a special experience for both you and your best friends.

Why charter a private jet for you and your pet?
There are many different reasons for chartering a private aircraft to fly with your pet instead of flying on a commercial airline.
Size - In today's world of shrinking airline seats, it is getting more and more difficult to take your pet in the cabin of the aircraft. If your best friend is over 15 pounds or more than 12 inches tall, then it will probably have to fly in the cargo hold (depending on the airline). This section of the cargo is pressurized and temperature controlled, but you might be concerned about putting your pet in the cargo hold of a commercial airline.
Summer/Winter Embargoes - During the summer when temperature exceeds 84 degrees F on the runway, many airlines will not accept a pet as checked baggage or as cargo. During the colder months, airlines will not transport your pet if the temperatures fall below 45 degrees F.
Number of Pets Traveling with You - Most airlines limit you to one pet per passenger in the cabin. If you have multiple pets or the pets are traveling unaccompanied, then they will need to travel as checked baggage or as cargo.
Breed of Pet - very few airlines will accept snub nose breeds such as Persian cats, Bulldogs, Pugs and Shih-Tzus in the cargo hold as they may develop breathing problems at high altitudes.
Immigration Requirements - Many countries such as the United Kingdom, will only allow pets to fly commercially as manifest (air) cargo and not in the cabin.

Comments from one of our happy travelers
We can't thank you enough for the most incredible experience. This flight was the best flight I have ever taken and I have flown many commercial airlines in all classes of service but the private plane can not compare. It didn't even feel like we were flying in an airplane, our bunnies did great, much better than we expected. They were relaxed and even went into their routines, sleeping and eating. Our bonded girls stayed in the carrier, they are a little skittish because they are ex-lab bunnies we rescued. Roger and Maribelle (adopted from a rescue) were definitely more relaxed and explored. Car rides are much worse for all of them compared to this flight. The pilots were amazing. The Captain brought ice and cooler because you had mentioned that I needed to bring greens for my bunnies.
Thank you. Everything went so smoothly and we can't thank
you enough for being so supportive and accommodating our needs and concerns. I am now confident that
I can move easily in the future with my bunnies anywhere! Thank you again.
With gratitude, Kitty and the buns
