Pet Travel on a Private Jet
6 October 2018
To travel with your pet on a Private Jet, you will need the usual pet travel documentation, however the main difference is that your pet can travel in the cabin with you and not in the hold.
Chartering a Jet means that your pet will enjoy the same comfortable luxurious environment as you. He or she will not be enclosed in a crate in dark noisy surroundings, where they most probably would not be very happy.
You will need to have a Pet Passport, an up to date Immunisation Record, as well as a microchip. In some countries you will need to worm your pet within 24 hours of departure and be vaccinated for specific diseases such as rabies.
The EU Pet Travel Scheme permits the movement of pet animals (dogs, cats and ferrets) around Europe without the need for quarantine, subject to the general conditions.
Within the USA there are similar guidelines, and differences from State to State, but it is quite straight forward to comply with the conditions.
We can advise you about the different regulations depending on your departure and arrival airports.
If you speak to your vet they will usually have the relevant information for you and will make sure medical certificates and vaccinations are up to date, ready for travel.
Once you have everything in place then your pet is able to stay with you whenever you travel by a private jet. Some countries will quarantine your pet - however long quarantine times are not frequent. For example just 10 days is now the standard in Australia.
