Flying Pets on Private Jet Charters

No one wants to leave their furry friend behind when heading off to your favorite destinations! Flying private with your pets can offer a more comfortable and convenient solution for both you and your furry friends. With these helpful tips, it doesn't have to be a stressful experience for you or your pet!

Here are some tips on how to fly private with your pets:

  1. Plan ahead and book early

When flying private with your pets, it's important to plan ahead and book your flight early. This will ensure that there is enough space on the aircraft for your pet and that you have enough time to prepare for the trip.

  1. Check with the aircraft operator

Before booking your flight, check with the aircraft operator to ensure that pets are allowed on board. Of course, Odyssey Airways knows how important your pets are so we make sure to accommodate those special family members.

  1. Get a health certificate and required vaccinations

Depending on the destination, your pet may require a health certificate and certain vaccinations. It's important to check with your veterinarian beforehand to ensure that your pet has all the necessary paperwork and vaccinations before flying.

  1. Familiarize your pet with the aircraft

Before the flight, it's a good idea to familiarize your pet with the aircraft. Arrive early to the airport so they can get acclimated and explore the aircraft. Allowing them to get used to the surroundings can reduce their anxiety during the flight.

  1. Bring a familiar blanket or toy

Bringing a familiar blanket or toy can help comfort your pet during the flight. The scent of home can help reduce anxiety and stress, making the flight more comfortable for your pet.

  1. Pack essential items for your pet

Pack those essentials, such as food, water, medication, and waste bags. It's important to pack enough supplies to last the entire trip so you’ll be ready if there’s anything they need during the flight.

  1. Consider a pet carrier

A pet carrier can help keep your pet safe and secure during the flight. Make sure the carrier is large enough for your pet to move around comfortably and has enough ventilation and visibility.

  1. Choose the right aircraft

Choosing the right aircraft is important when flying with pets. Larger aircraft with more cabin space can provide more room for your pet to move around and be comfortable during the flight.

  1. Be respectful of the aircraft and crew

When flying private with your pet, it's important to be respectful of the aircraft and crew. Follow all pet policies and clean up after your pet to ensure the aircraft remains in pristine condition.

Flying private with your pets can be a great experience, offering a more comfortable and convenient solution for both you and your furry friends. By following these tips, you can help ensure a stress-free and enjoyable flight for you and your pet.

Are private jets safer than commercial airlines?

Private jets are equally as safe as commercial airlines. This is largely attributed to the stringent federal regulations and oversight that govern both private and commercial aviation sectors. At Odyssey Airways, we adhere to these strict safety standards to ensure the highest level of safety for our passengers. Rest assured that your well-being is our top priority, and we maintain a steadfast commitment to providing a safe and secure travel experience. Fly with confidence and peace of mind with Odyssey Airways.

Are there any special requirements or documents needed to fly private?

When flying privately, you typically only need a valid photo ID to board the aircraft, unless you are traveling internationally. For international flights, it is important to have a valid passport and, if required, a visa. These documents are necessary to comply with the regulations of the countries you are visiting. At Odyssey Airways, we prioritize the seamless travel experience of our passengers, and we recommend ensuring that you have the proper identification and travel documents for international journeys. Our team is available to assist you in understanding and fulfilling the necessary requirements for your international travel.

Can I bring my own food and drinks on a private jet?

You are welcome to bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages on your private jet rental. Our dedicated Odyssey team will ensure that any alcoholic beverages you desire for your private jet charter are stocked on the aircraft. Additionally, we can cater to your specific culinary preferences and accommodate any food requests you may have. Please note that Federal Regulations prohibit passengers from carrying alcoholic beverages on board for consumption. However, you are permitted to transport special wines or beverages for your personal enjoyment at your destination, such as for a special occasion or dinner. Let us assist in creating a delightful dining experience during your private jet journey with Odyssey Airways.

Can I request a specific pilot or crew for my private jet flight?

Flight crew members undergo specific training for particular aircraft types. While it is possible to request a specific flight crew for your private jet charter, this request is subject to scheduling and availability. At Odyssey Airways, our pilots are passionate about providing exceptional service to our valued passengers, and we strive to fulfill such requests whenever feasible. We understand the importance of building rapport with your preferred crew, and we will make every effort to team you up with your favorite crew members.
