Benefits of Private Jet Charter for Flying with Pets

  • You avoid the risks, stress, and inconvenience of flying commercially with your companions.
  • You fly with your pet in the cabin which is significantly safer for them than being locked in a cargo hold and much more comfortable than being stowed under another passenger's seat.
  • Your pet can be of any size while on commercial airlines size regulations are getting stricter and stricter leaving large pet owners very little flexibility when traveling.
  • There's no maximum number of animals in the cabin per passenger, while any commercial air carrier allows a limited number of pets - usually it's one and other animals must be stowed in the cargo hold.
  • You can travel any time of the year unlike with many airlines who don't allow pets to fly in the cargo hold during warmer and colder months due to the increased risk and liability issues.
  • You're not affected by breed restrictions which ban some breeds from flying.
  • You can give your pets full attention and monitor their well-being throughout the flight.

Legal Requirements for Pet Travel

Internationally, countries have different guidelines regarding traveling with pets. However, as long as pet owners provide valid documentation for their pets, Paramount Business Jets will handle the rest. By working through the appropriate channels we'll ensure a perfectly pet friendly private jet charter.

Requirements for Pets Flying in the USA

  • Up-to-date rabies vaccinations are required when traveling through any part of the country.
  • Cats and dogs must be at least 8 weeks old.
  • Animals must be weaned.
  • Some states require health certificates from a veterinarian.

These are a few restrictions to keep in mind before getting on the aircraft with a pet. Remember that to ensure the ultimate safety and comfort of your pets during air travel, using a private charter is clearly the best option.

Choosing the Right Aircraft to Travel With Pets

Even in the case of a private jet charter pets may get stressed at certain times, especially during take-off and landing. Therefore, you might want to choose a type of aircraft that will help them relax. The available space and cabin noise levels are particularly important factors which usually make the aircraft pet friendly.

The owners of large breed dogs know that not all aircraft are suitable for flying with their pet. For example, aircraft with dropped center aisles may be uncomfortable for larger breeds as they can only lie down in one direction down the aisle. When traveling with larger breeds, we recommend choosing an aircraft with a flat floor cabin. These planes provide big animals the comfort of being able to lie down on their side and stretch out.
