Pet Air Travel

Pet Air Travel Summer 2020 Update

As the summer officially approaches more people are considering pet air travel with private charter as an alternative to the airlines because of obvious health concerns, reductions in available flights, and with the difficulty of flying certain breeds of pets. More individuals and families need to relocate to new homes around the world and the task of flying their pets can often be stressful when trying to find solutions.

Pet Jets utilizes industry software to find approved charter aircraft that offers you the best pricing for your itinerary. While the cost of private air charter can be expensive, our clients often find the cost to be justified when they arrive to their destination with their pets safe and without stress. Recent trends find many of our clients requiring larger private aircraft for long flights such as New York to London that typically seat 9-14 passengers, however, our clients may only require half the seats which is why our founder created Pet Jets Travel Club.

The goal of the club is for members to network with the purpose of sharing a flight with another party and to save up to 50% by sharing the cost between two parties. Pet Jets markets the member requests on social media and our website. When members network and agree on sharing a flight, Pet Jets will research the best pricing and aircraft options and arranges the flight with approved air carriers representing our members with safety as our priority.

While there are still many Covid-19 travel restrictions for humans at this time, the same restrictions can occur for pet air travel depending on destinations worldwide. For your pets it is best to check with your veterinarian before travel for needed vaccinations and a general health check to fly. Charter aircraft often leave from their own private terminals, compared to risk exposure in an overcrowded commercial airport lounge. Our clients pass thorough security more quickly and have no lengthy waits in line, either to check-in or to board. These conveniences of private charter are prime benefits for health reasons and means less stress on your pets!

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’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.
