Flying with multiple pets or larger animals on a private jet are among the top reasons pet owners enjoy flying privately.
With over 55 years of experience, we are well versed in arranging private jet flights for your four-legged friends and our team can offer you all the expertise and information you need. We've highlighted the benefits of private travel for pets and answered the some of the most frequently asked questions we get asked by pet owners.
Flying with your pet on board
Flying with your pet by private jet is a safe solution and will give you peace of mind. Having your pet in the cabin with you is a much safer option than them traveling in hold. Having pets travel in hold, typical of many commercial airlines, can be both unsettling for the pet and the owner. When flying privately, there are always rules in place to ensure safety – such as dogs being on a leash on the tarmac and having a harness on-board that can be attached to the seats' safety belts, should you experience any turbulence on your journey.
Flying with multple pets?
Nowadays many more people are pet owners, and many pet owners have multiple pets. Among our top requests is taking multiple pets on a private jet charter. We've successfully organized dozens of private flights with pets, and our clients enjoy having their dogs or cats nearby during the flight. Recently, we handled a private jet flight from Hawaii to the mainland for a family of 9 - of which 8 were cats. Flying on board with their owner by their side, who was relocating, provided the perfect solution. With each cat comfortably situated in their spacious crates, placed neatly across the interior of their private jet, there was still plenty of room to walk around. The owner was able to feed and hold her cats throughout the flight's 6-hour duration as she wished.
will my pet get the perks of flying private?
Animals who fly privately particularly enjoy the additional freedom, and owners can relax knowing their pets are perfectly taken care of. We have a trio of dogs who fly privately quite regularly, all of whom enjoy being pampered as much as their owner. As we provide custom catering for our clients, this is naturally extended to our beloved pet passengers too. Simply ask your Account Manager to have your preferred pet food and water made available during the flight.

When booking your private jet trip with JetCard, be sure to let your Account Manager know you will be traveling with a pet on board so that any arrangements can be made prior to your travel date. When flying domestically within the U.S., no documents are required to fly pets intrastate or interstate via private jet. International travel has specific regulations. To satisfy the UK and EU law now, your pet need only be micro-chipped, hold an EU Pet Passport (or an accredited non-EU Vet certificate), be vaccinated against Rabies and have been treated recently for tapeworm. Once you have this paperwork in hand, you can choose to fly direct into specific airports across the UK.
