What are the advantages of private travel for pet owners?
For many people, leaving their pets behind for a trip is not an option. Just because you’re traveling with pets, doesn’t mean they should go through an unpleasant journey. If you want your pet to stay calm and comfortable during the flight, the only option is chartering a private jet. Having your beloved pet close by might be all you need when deciding on a private flight, but here are a few benefits of private travel for pets:
Give your pets the comfort they deserve
One of the major benefits of flying pets privately is being able to keep them comfortable. No one enjoys having to be cooped up with no space to move around during a flight. This is what makes private charters appeal to most people. Passengers get the luxury of getting to have the space to make themselves comfortable, which is something every pet owner wants for their pet as well. Many airlines require pets to either stay on their owner’s lap for the entirety of the flight, or in a cage in cargo. If you’re going to be flying for several hours, this is no way to keep a pet. Private charters give you pet the opportunity to relax and spread out during a flight. Pets frequently have enough anxiety to begin with when traveling, and the way they are treated on many flights only worsens it. This allows you to comfort your pet, and give them the chance to enjoy flying, as well.
Travel with all of your pets
Many pet owners end up having more than one pet, one person might have several. Many airlines have restrictions regarding how many pets you can bring with you. Some might only allow one pet per passenger. When traveling with more than one pet, one might be able to stay with you, while the others have to be kept in cargo. For pet owners with multiple pets, this can’t work. You love your pets equally, so you want all of them to be able to travel comfortably with you. By chartering a private jet with Paramount Business Jets, you never have to choose which pet you take, you’re free to bring them all along for the ride. If you have more than one pet you intend to travel with, there is no other way to do this than with a private charter.
Fly with your pets year-round
If you’re like most people, you most likely try to plan your vacations for the winter or summer. For extended vacations, or just to keep pets close by, many people prefer to bring their pets along. Unfortunately, pets are restricted from flights during some of the most popular travel times. When temperatures are extreme, either too high or too low, the cargo of planes can get to be unsafe temperatures. If this happens, animals are no longer allowed to be kept there, which is the only way to bring them on many planes. Even when temperatures are not extreme enough to be kept off of flights, it can still be too much for you to feel comfortable making your pet sit through. On a pet charter, your pets will be kept with you, not by themselves in cargo. This keeps them at a comfortable temperature, no matter the time of year
Bring along any breed or size
Owners of certain breeds and sizes are used to running into some problems that can occur when bringing them around other people. If you have a specific breed, like dog owners with pitbulls or mastiffs, you might already be aware of the difficulties that come with flying them. Many flights have restrictions about what size or breed of dog are allowed to board a flight. You know your pet better than anyone, so you know if they’re able to handle themselves on a flight, however, just because you know this, doesn’t mean others do. If you need to bring a pet with you while traveling, there shouldn’t be restrictions based on other people's conceptions of them. We don’t want you to ever feel like you have to leave your pet behind, just because of their breed. At Paramount Business Jets, we can help find a jet for you that works for any size dog.
Keep them in your care
Leaving the care of your pet up to a stranger for hours at a time can be stressful for any pet owner. Your pet might not be treated with the same level of care that you would. On flights that aren’t accommodating to animals, you aren’t even able to keep an eye on them. Leaving pets alone in a strange environment doesn’t sit well with most pet owners. Being stuck in cargo can also become unsafe for some pets during flights. The Humane Society even advocates against keeping animals in the cargo of airplanes due to safety concerns. Keeping them out in the open with you by their side is much safer. If your pet needs something during the flight, you want to know that you’ll be right there to help. This is a comfort to owners and pets that’s invaluable.
What are the legal requirements for pet travel?
Understanding legal requirements is one of the hardest parts of traveling with pets. Each country has different requirements, and it can often be quite confusing to understand. Depending on what type of pet you have, the rules for flying might vary as well. Legal requirements can be especially difficult if you plan to travel to multiple countries as a part of your trip. This is also one of the most important things that need to be taken care of to jet a pet, so you need to know that it’s being done correctly. While countries have different guidelines regarding traveling with pets, as long as the pet owner provides current documentation for their pet, Paramount Business Jets can handle the rest. We will be able to work through the appropriate channels to ensure that your trip is as smooth as possible for both you and your pet.
Requirements for Pet Travel in the USA
- Up-to-date rabies vaccinations are required when traveling through any part of the country.
- Cats and dogs must also be at least 8 weeks old.
- Animals must also be weaned.
- Some states require health certificates from a veterinarian.
In short, flying with your pet does not have to be a stressful experience. For owners concerned with the safety and comfort of their pets during air travel, flying by private charter is clearly the preferred option. Paramount Business Jets can help everything to jet your pet is in order, no matter where you’re going.
Choosing the Right Aircraft for Travel With Pets
Even in the comfort of a private jet, pets may become stressed at certain times, particularly during takeoff and landing. It’s best to choose the aircraft that will allow them to relax while in flight, including in terms of available space and cabin noise levels. On the right jet, pets might not even notice that they’re traveling, which is something every pet owner hopes for. Of course, the pet jets cost might also come to many people. Costs can vary greatly depending on the details of your trip. We have access to a total of over 4,000 private jets that we can arrange for you, so you’ll surely find something that works for you.
What works for one person’s pet, won’t be the perfect match for a different breed. We don’t expect you to know everything about the jets that are available for private charter. Even for those who travel often on a number of different jets might not understand what they need to look for private air travel for pets. Owners of large breed dogs know that not all aircraft are suitable when flying with their pets. For example, aircraft with dropped center aisles may be uncomfortable for larger breeds, as they can only lay down in one direction down the aisle. Understanding what jet is best is part of what makes working with Paramount Business Jets a great value. We work with you to go through your best options until you settle on the right jet.
Pet Charter for Large Breeds
When it comes to traveling with pets, larger breeds are typically the ones that have the most challenges. Fortunately, we have more than enough jet options that are perfect for big dogs and other large animals. For traveling with larger breeds, we recommend using aircraft with a flat floor cabin that provides these animals the comfort of being able to lie down on their side and stretch out. Some of the aircraft we can arrange that with flat floor cabins suitable for large dogs include:
- Beech Jet 400 and 400A, light jet
- Hawker 400XP, light jet

- Hawker 4000, super mid
