Empty Leg Flights – Save Money when you Charter Aircraft with Your Pets

Every day there are hundreds of aircraft that operate on air carrier certificates that fly empty leg flights available for pet friendly air charters around the world. Today’s technology provides daily updates on when these aircraft are available often at a significant discount that can make an air charter much more affordable for pet owners who are flexible with their travel plans. For instance an aircraft that might be based out of the Los Angeles area flies to Houston with a client, however after dropping off the client, the aircraft needs to return to its home base in Los Angeles for another charter trip. The air carrier operator will then post their empty leg flight special to industry software in order to sell the trip from Houston to Los Angeles for revenue often at a significant discount rather than flying the aircraft back to base empty. While these flights are not scheduled service, they are considered on-demand flights and can assist pet owners with flying with their pets! If looking for an empty leg visit our website often or complete and air charter request form with Pet Jets and we will do the search for you! Empty leg flights are excellent for domestic trips, however, for international trips, pet owners should first make sure their pet will be able to enter the country of arrival as many countries have restrictions or quarantine requirements. For some countries this may require months of planning, but for domestic trips for example in the United States with the exception of trips to Hawaii, empty leg flights flights are a great way to save money when flying with your pet in the cabin for those pet owners who are flexible with their travel!

This law states that dogs and cats meeting specific pre- and post-arrival requirements may qualify for 5-day–or-less quarantine program, which has a provision for direct release at Honolulu International Airport after inspection. Furthermore, the law requires dogs and cats that do not meet all of the specific 5-Day-Or-Less program requirements to be quarantined for up to 120 days upon arrival in Hawaii.  Please read thoroughly the following documents containing details on the rabies quarantine programs for importing dogs and cats.
