- Remember About Safety
- Bring Stress-Eliminators
If you’re planning on traveling with your pet on a private jet, there are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind to make the experience as smooth and stress-free as possible. Here are our top tips:
- Make sure your pet is up-to-date on all their vaccinations. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires that each pet that goes across state lines, with the exception of a guide dog, have a rabies vaccination and a valid health certificate from a licensed veterinarian within 30 days of travel.
- Bring along any medications or other supplies your pet might need during the flight, such as food, water, a bowl, and a leash.
- Remember about safety and seatbelts. Having a loose animal in the cabin during takeoff, landing, and turbulence can be dangerous to the pet, human passengers, and the interior of the aircraft.
- Be prepared for takeoff and landing. These can be especially tough on pets, so have some treats on hand to help them relax.
- Make sure you have your pet’s ID with you, in case they get lost during the trip.
- Stress-eliminators can help your dog relax. For dogs, bringing along favorite or blanket toys can help to alleviate the tension of flying.
These tips will help ensure that your pet has a safe and comfortable flight when traveling on a private jet.
