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!

Hawaii Pet Flights

Hawaii pet flights can be accomplished with air charter and planning. Pet Jets has been pleased with providing our clients with air charter needs for Hawaii pet flights as more pet owners learn about aircraft charter as a travel solution when visiting or relocating to the Hawaii Islands. While air charter can be expensive, Pet Jets has been able to assist with finding one way and empty-leg flights for clients that are flexible with their flight schedules. Pet Jets has recently created the  Pet Jets Travel Club for members that might be interested in sharing a flight that can assist lowering the cost by up to 50% by splitting the cost with another party.

What is most important for pet owners interested in pet flights to Hawaii is understanding Hawaii’s Animal Quarantine Law that requires some planning in order to avoid up to a 120 day quarantine upon arrival in Hawaii. Hawaii is rabies-free. Hawaii’s quarantine law is designed to protect residents and pets from potentially serious health problems associated with the introduction and spread of rabies. All dogs and cats, regardless of age (puppies and kittens included) or purpose, must comply with Hawaii’s dog and cat import requirements.

Chapter 4-29 Hawaii Administrative Rules, governs the importation of dogs, cats and other carnivores into Hawaii. 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. For a complete understanding of the rules and requirements for the importation of pets into Hawaii, visit the State of Hawaii Animal Industry Website that offers contact information and online brochures explaining the steps required.

Book Your Charter Flight Early for the Upcoming Holidays!

As we approach the upcoming 2015 holiday season, we wanted to remind our clients to book your holiday charter trips early to reserve the best pricing and aircraft! We also wanted to add some Winter travel tips to keep in mind to ensure a safe, secure and stress-free trip for everyone.

  • Let’s see some ID – Make sure the information on your dog’s ID tags is current and the tags are securely fastened to their collar. Also, carry a recent photo with contact information in case you get separated.
  • Vacation vaccination – Schedule a visit to the vet if your dog isn’t completely up to date on all shots before you leave. Keep copies of vaccination documentation on hand and also bring along any medications your dog might need.
  • Comfort – Bring a favorite blanket and pillow to create a familiar, comforting environment in the aircraft. Try to stick to a regular feeding and sleeping schedule.
  • Watered down – Along with food, your dog will need plenty of bottled water for the flight. Bring your pets favorite watering bowl!
  • Shake your booty – If you’re planning some backwoods winter adventures with your pooch, bring along a set of all-weather dog booties to protect your pet’s paws from raw, frozen terrain.
  • No more salty paws – Walking on roads or sidewalks coated with de-icing salts can irritate a dog’s paw pads. Bring along some baby wipes to help keep paws clean and salt-free.
  • Be prepared – Pack an extra leash, first aid kit, and cleaning supplies for unexpected emergencies.
  • Sweater weather – If your dog is prone to the shivers, he or she might need a warm doggy sweater to keep the chills at bay during your flight.
