Experience flying with your pets in comfort and safety of the private jet

APRIL, 2021

There are so many ways to travel with pets. It could be a driving trip, travel by cruise ships and flying a pet in the cargo of commercial airline. These options, nonetheless, may be limited by complex set of rules and regulations over the species, breed and size of a pet.  If you are looking for a safe and friendly travel with pets – a private jet charter will be there just for you and your furry friends.

There are a variety of reasons to charter a plane and fly private with your pets instead of traveling commercial. In the GCC region, many expatriate clients want to fly their pets relocating from the region to their home countries; some travelers take their pets with them when going on a lengthy vacation. Whatever the reason is, a private jet travel always has considerable advantage, for both, the owner and a pet.

In today’s airline industry, less and less airlines allow pets on board, the seats are reducing in size and it is getting more and more challenging to fit a pet in the cabin of the aircraft. If your pet is over 15 pounds or more than 12 inches tall, then, most commonly it will have to fly in the cargo hold. This section of the cargo is pressurized and temperature controlled, but some gentle souls are intolerant to enclosed spaces, which makes the flight a traumatic experience.

Most airlines imply a limit of one pet per passenger in the cabin. If there are multiple pets or the pets are unaccompanied, then they will have to travel as checked baggage or as cargo. 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 the flying altitudes.

During the summer heat and in winter colder months, when temperature on the runway exceeds comfort levels, many airlines will not accept a pet as checked baggage or as cargo.  Many countries such as the United Kingdom, will only allow pets to fly commercially as manifest (air) cargo and not in the cabin.

On ASM Charter Learjet, pets can travel with their owner in the aircraft cabin and enjoy to a full a private flight, tailor-made with precision, entirely exclusive to the traveler.
