Vincent Jets is a pet-friendly private jet company, and If you are planning to fly with a pet the team at Vincent Jets offers a few suggestions and would love to help with a few common questions you may have.
We suggest reducing the animal’s water intake 4 hours before boarding the plane to mitigate the chances of a mishap; be sure it gets lots of exercise on the day of the flight so that it will be less restless if not relaxed, and bring along the animal’s favorite toy or blanket to help ease the stress of flying.
The United States Department of Agriculture, which regulates air transportation of pets within the United States, requires that to fly in a plane—commercial or private—an animal must be at least 8 weeks old and in good health. Depending on your destination, you may need additional paperwork for international travel.
Every day Is Flyday at Vincent Jets, so let us answer any common questions you may have…
Do pets fly in the main cabin along with passengers?
Yes – your pet will be right in the passenger area with you.
Do pets need to stay in kennels/cages while in flight?
Dogs and cats can be loose in the cabin. Birds, reptiles, etc are handled on a case-by-case basis.
Are there size/breed restrictions for dogs on private jets?
There are no size restrictions, but for bigger dogs, a larger aircraft is often recommended for their comfort.
Can you provide food for my dog/cat or do I need to bring my own?
It’s up to you – we can arrange for any kind of food on the aircraft or you can bring your own.
We are animal lovers to the core at Vincent Jets and we are proud to provide a fantastic experience. Pets are part of the family, and they receive royal treatment on every Vincent Jets charter flight!
