An executive in private aviation, Edgar Alacan leads Jets.com, a firm that delivers luxury travel at competitive prices through private charter flights. Edgar Alacan maintains a strong presence in a dynamic industry that is uniquely positioned to meet specific client requirements, such as traveling with a pet.
For pet owners, whether dogs, birds, or cats, one key advantage of a private jet flight is that the well-loved member of the family can travel directly with the owner. Instead of being confined in a cargo hold, pets are able to pass through airports’ private terminals directly. This avoids the confusion of crowds, lines, and baggage and security screenings.
One important aspect of any private flight with a pet companion is to ascertain with the charter company that the specific aircraft has pet-friendly policies in place and allows animals in the cabin. If the go-ahead is given, owners typically have the option to leave the pet in the carrier throughout the flight or allow them out to sit on a lap.
Keep in mind that any pet accidents that require attention will often result in an additional fee. Also make certain that all health documents for the animal meet appropriate regulatory requirements, at both the departure point and destination, before inducting your loved one into the “pet set.”
