Flying Private With Pets
Written by Alex M. Early, CEO of The Early Air Way
So you have a special bond with your furry friend, I understand. Unless your dog or cat can fit in a carrier under the seat in front of you on a commercial flight, he or she will have to be checked into the baggage compartment on the aircraft. You don’t want that for your canine or feline partner.
An incredibly large number of people charter private jets so that their pets can join them in the passenger cabin. We have pets on our flights very regularly, basically every day.
When you travel with a dog on a chartered jet, you can forget about cages altogether. You can have your dog on a leash and walk him/her right up the steps onboard the aircraft. Your dog can lie down on the couch and gaze out the window and with the high tech air purifiers for dander every one will be in comfort. You can travel with your furry friend worry free of what might be happening down below. We’ll even cater to your four-legged friend if desired.
Cats are allowed onboard aircraft as well, however cats will have to remain in carriers so they don’t hide in hard to reach places, as cats can be known to do. Regardless however, your cat’s carrier can stay with you right in the main passenger cabin.
Private flight is extremely pet friendly. If you travel with pets and haven’t yet flown private, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is. Generally speaking, there is no extra charge to bring your pets with you on private jets; charges would only be incurred if Fido happens to soil the carpets.
