Whether you’ve always had a pet or added a four-legged companion to your life during the pandemic, furry friends are part of the family. Now that summer is almost upon us, it’s time to start planning your getaways and excursions. Many people prefer to bring their pets with them on vacation instead of sending them off to boarding, but traveling with a pet can be trickier than herding cats. Here are a few tips to avoid the turbulence of pet travel by air.
The Ups and Downs of Flying Commercial With Pets
When your vacation plans require traveling by plane, you have a few options for your furry companion. You can ship them to your destination or take them on the plane with you. Neither option is ideal: Shipping is impersonal (and potentially dangerous), and bringing them with you can be a headache-inducing hassle. Flying commercial with your pet can be extremely stressful for both you and the animal. Animals can feel extreme levels of anxiety and disorientation while on crowded airplanes, especially if they are separated from their owners. Not to mention, there are many requirements that you’ll have to adhere to and there have even been recent bans on flying with pets. Some airlines don’t even allow service or emotional support animals anymore. With all these restrictions, rules, and crackdowns it makes a lot more sense to fly private if you’re looking to travel with a pet.
The Benefits of Flying Private With Your Pet
Flying private allows you unparalleled freedom, comfort, and peace-of-mind. You and your pet will be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy your trip while receiving the most bespoke experience that travel has to offer. Plus with jet share programs like Jet It, you don’t have to own your own private jet! You can gain access to a Honda Jet or another top-of-the-line jet without all the hassle that comes with upkeep and maintenance.
A private flight will ensure that the needs of both you and your pet are met, which alleviates the anxiety and stress associated with commercial travel. You can feel good, knowing you are preventing a potentially traumatizing experience and start your vacation off on the right foot– or paw!
While commercial flights may be subject to breed and size restrictions, private air travel welcomes pets of all sizes, weights, and breeds. You will be able to get from point A to point B without worrying about whether or not your desired airline will allow your pet.
Avoiding a crowded plane also helps you and your pet stay healthier by avoiding high-traffic surfaces and potential airborne illnesses. Now more than ever, people are looking for every opportunity to stay safe and healthy. Flying via jet share is one more way to ensure you and your family avoid crowded places where germs thrive. And since your flight crew will only be catering to you and your family, the safety and comfort of your loved ones, pets included, will be top priority. Your dog or cat will be able to lounge, nap, and stretch out in their own space instead of being crammed into a kennel or carrier.
