Pet Jets Travel Club – Share a Pet Friendly Air Charter!

Pet Jets Travel Club

In response to the latest news that a major international airline is no longer taking reservations to fly pets in cargo, Pet Jets has received a significant increase in inquires for pet friendly air charters. While the cost of air charter can significantly be higher than the cost of airline flights, air charter offers a great solution for relocation or vacation flights. Many inquiries find that pet owners require a large jet for their flight that can be cost prohibitive . For example,  from the west coast of the U.S. to Hawaii, a large private jet is required for the flight, but many of our inquiries only have a small party of two or three passengers with one pet leaving ample space on the aircraft for another similar party to share the flight and cost. Pet Jets Travel Club was created to offer an opportunity to lower the cost by half by providing an opportunity to network with other pet owners to simply share a flight. To meet this need, Pet Jets has a member only section of their website for Pet Jets Travel Club members as well as a private facebook group page for members to post their flight requests and network. Once you find another party to share a flight, Pet Jets assist with finding the best aircraft at the best price to assist with arranging your pet friendly air charter. Pet Jets Travel Club provides the opportunity to reduce the cost of private air charter at a time when pet owners who don’t want their pets to fly in cargo or can’t find air transportation solutions for relocation or travel.

Thinking of Traveling With Your Dog? Here are 5 Dog-Friendly Countries to Consider

Dogs, just like humans are your friends and the least they want from you is to feel wanted or a sense of belonging. Besides eating together, your dog will have the time and appreciate the love and friendship you share when you include them in your travel plans. So, where are you traveling to next? Have you gone through the dog culture at your travel destination? Do you have your dogs and your travel documents? And, how will you reach your destination? Having these in mind is important if you don’t want to leave your dog with your babysitter.

If you are like most of us, you die a little every time you leave your dog whining, don’t you? Well, then, let’s take a look at some of the dog-friendly countries you and your furry friend should tour:

1.     France

France is a magical travel destination that offers the best sights and sounds, as well as food. But, that isn’t all. It is the nation of dog lovers – no wonder the French are always happy! On your first trip, you’ll most probably see several canines walking down the streets. You will also spot a few resident dogs napping at shop counters, markets, cafes, and even bars.

2.     Austria

Going to central Europe soon? Make your destination Austria. This country is a popular travel destination although it is commonly overlooked due to its beautiful neighbor Germany. Austria’s dog-friendliness means that you will have the best outdoor experience walking and swimming in the pristine lakes and hiking the scenic Austria hills. All you have to remember if you are planning to take a scenic hike is to get adequate protection for your dog’s paw because of the rocky landscape.

But that isn’t all, Austria is among the best dog-friendly countries, and it has some of the most progressive animal rights laws. Pet stores do not sell dogs and cats, and there are some training accessories deemed harmful to pets. So, in Austria, you will be on the wrong side of the law if you give your pooch shock collars or install invisible containment systems. Austria has several dog-friendly hotels and holiday inns.

3.     Hungary

If you are looking for an alternative destination to Austria, go to Hungary. There, dogs are part of the family, and there are strict dog protection laws to protect your furry friend. Hungary requires you to microchip your dog as a resident, and for the dog’s protection, tail docking isn’t allowed.

You will get to walk through Hungary’s beautiful historic city centers of Budapest. Dogs are welcome in parks, restaurants, and hotels. Some parts don’t require leashing as long as your dog recognizes voice commands.

4.     Sweden

This picturesque country will be home to you and your pup in the next few days if you make your travel plans now. The climate is ideal for your pup in the warmer months and dogs are allowed in public transport. In some parts of Sweden, you will come across food bowls and water dishes for pets. So, get ready to explore the rugged coastline or the sites in the modern-day Stockholm.

5.     Great Britain

This is an advanced country that makes dogs and pets feel protected. Pets are welcome in trains across the country, and you can easily plan your trip with your dog. With your dog, you can discover the most amazing historical treasures like medieval castles, prehistoric sites, and ancient forests. How about a chance to visit Wales, England, Northern Ireland, as well as Scotland? You just may get back home with an accent!

Hawaii Pet Flights

Hawaii Pet Flights – Aircraft Charter Solutions and Planning

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.
