Everything you need to know for charted air travel with pets

Travel with your pets in a private jet to your favourite destinations, and you will avoid the stress of flying with your pet on a commercial flight is possible. Some families can find it difficult to leave their pets behind when they travel. Pets are part of the family, and all pet owners dream about flying with their furry friends on vacation. Travelling with pets is becoming more and more popular, with pet owners wanting to travel with their pets as much as possible.

A private jet eliminates your cat or dog's anxiety about being confined when flying commercially; you can rest easy knowing that your pet will be comfortable and safe on board. Flying with pets on board a private jet is a fantastic experience. Not only will your pet be able to travel in comfort and style, but you'll also have access to a large cabin and all the amenities you'd expect from a luxury service.

Whether transporting a beloved dog to a sunny summer retreat or looking forward to seeing your new tabby kitten, many people are concerned about the stress of flying on a commercial airline with their cat or dog. You can alleviate this concern by choosing to fly privately; no matter your pet type, your pets will feel right at home!

Taking your pet with you on your vacation is a great way to provide them with some rest and relaxation. However, most airlines do not allow you to take your pet with you in the cabin. This can cause issues with your pet as they are restrained in their cages and subjected to loud noises that would scare the average human, let alone a pet.

Why is flying with pets commercially difficult?

Restrictions, limitations and regulations to meet to travel with pets

When travelling with your pets, they may become overwhelmed and frightened when flying. It removes them from familiar and comfortable environments, forcing them into a loud, bright atmosphere with thousands of people. Combined with the many restrictions currently imposed on commercial aircraft, the experience can be traumatising for our furry friends.

Pets can travel on a commercial airline in one of 3 ways: in-cabin, checked baggage and manifest cargo.


Your pet may travel in the cabin if it is small enough to be carried. The general rule is that the pet must not weigh more than 20 pounds/9 kilograms or more than 10 inches/25 centimetres tall.

If your pet is small enough, an airline-compliant carrier must be stowed under the seat. An adult passenger must accompany a pet travelling in the cabin to fly. At the passenger check-in desk, an agent will inspect all your dog or cat documentation to allow it to fly on board. You will head to security after you have paid the pet carry-on fee and received approval.

Checked Baggage Cabin:

Any pet that exceeds the airline's cabin size restriction must travel as checked baggage in the cargo hold. You have no control once you deliver your pet to airline employees.

It is not guaranteed they will pay special attention or care to your dog or cat in their cage. The airport personnel try to make dogs comfortable in the cargo hold, but it's a challenging experience for your pet. In addition to being separated from you, objects may fall or shift around during the flight, which may be loud and terrifying.

Manifest Cargo:

If a pet is too large and cannot travel as checked baggage, the pet would need to travel as manifest cargo in the hold. They may be followed throughout their journey by an AWB or Airway Bill Number Manifest cargo is commonly more costly to transport your pets than excess baggage.

Tips for flying with your pets

Everything you need to know about flying with your furry companion

The GlobeAir #DreamTeam has developed some tips on travelling smarter and ensuring that your dog or cat is ready for their dream vacation.

Tips before departure

  • Ensure that your pet has all the necessary documents for your specific destination. Generally, a pet would require a health clearance from a veterinarian and an approved EU pet passport showing proof of vaccination against rabies.
  • Make sure your pet is healthy and vaccinated. If it’s a puppy or kitten, consider getting them microchipped before you travel with them.
  • Know your destination. For example, when flying from the United Kingdom to Ibiza or Palma? In this case pets need to be cleared by customs in France or any other Shengen area.
  • Ensure your pet is comfortable travelling in different environments and situations (for example, being confined in a small space).
  • Make sure your pet behaves well on the flight by keeping him/her quiet and calm throughout so as not to disturb other passengers.
  • Before departure, taking your dog or cat for a quick stroll can help calm their nerves and also allow them to relieve themselves.
  • Be aware of additional costs. Certain countries like Great Britain will charge an extra variable cost depending on the airport you arrive in.*

Tips for looking after your pet during flight

  • It is essential that your pet be well-rested and not over-tired before you get on the plane
  • Make sure that your pet is safe inside the cabin. It can be a danger not just to your pet but to you as a passenger if your pet is loose in the cabin. We recommend keeping your pet on a leash or crate, depending on your pet's comfort level.
  • Bring a blanket with you: Bring your pet’s favourite bedding as a stress-relief measure while flying
  • You may also want to consider bringing toys to play with your pet. If your pet has particular grooming needs, be sure to bring those along, as well.
  • Keep it comfortable: Make sure your pet feels comfortable during the flight. You can always ask GlobeAir to arrange some special treats for him/her beforehand
  • Get your pet ready: Make sure that your pet knows the basic behavioural commands
  • Finally, depending on how far away our destination is, ensure they stay hydrated with plenty of water available. To add to their luxury pet travel, why not bring along their favourite treat?

Tips for your pet after you land

  • Ensure all your documentation is ready to be checked by the local authorities at your destination.
  • Pets often become dehydrated and hungry after a trip. Make sure they are adequately nourished and well hydrated when they arrive, especially if the journey has been long.
  • Take your dog for a walk immediately once you have landed. An airport pet relief area can help you stretch your legs and pups after flying.

Flying with your pet on board a private jet is an enjoyable experience for both of you. The plane's luxurious interior and spacious seating make your pet comfortable throughout the journey. You'll also have all the time in the world to enjoy each other’s company since there are no delays due to boarding or disembarking passengers from commercial flights.
