Fido-Friendly Flying: Why Private Flights are the Best Choice for Pet Owners

Fido-Friendly Flying: Why Private Flights are the Best Choice for Pet Owners


Traveling with pets can be a challenge, especially if you’re flying on a commercial airline. You have to worry about whether or not your furry friend will be comfortable in the cargo hold, whether they’ll be properly cared for during the flight, and whether they’ll be allowed to travel with you in the cabin.


In addition to the risk to your pet’s health, traveling commercially with pets can also require months of early planning and a lot of back and forth with airlines. But with all the prep you can do, a horrible outcome doesn’t seem all that unavoidable.


But what if there was a better way? What if you could travel with your pet in comfort, style, and safety? That’s possible on private flights.


Private flights are a game-changer for pet owners. Here are some important benefits pet owners can expect when flying with pets on L’Voyage private flights:


Simple Pet Clearance Process

One of the biggest advantages of traveling with your pet via private flight is the simplicity of the pet clearance process. All you need to do is prepare the necessary pet documents such as a pet passport or Rabies vaccination card and you’re good to go.


There’s no need to hire a pet import agent to assist in clearance. This saves you time, money, and the hassle of communicating with more middlemen just to bring your best friend along.


Pets are Considered Hand Carry Luggage

When you fly on a private plane, your pet is considered hand-carry luggage. That means they get on and off the plane when you do. There’s no need to worry about your pet being left alone in the cargo hold or being separated from you during the flight. Your pet can be right by your side, making the journey more enjoyable for both of you.


No cargo hold and your pet can enjoy the same comforts you do – lounges with proper air conditioning, food, water, and the irreplaceable comfort of them just being near you.


Your Pet Can Come Along in the Cabin

Another great benefit of private flights is that your pet can come along with you in the cabin. This means they’ll be able to sit on your lap or in their own designated seat, depending on the size of the aircraft. This can be a huge relief for pet owners who worry about their pets being uncomfortable or stressed during a flight.


Owners can be there for anxious pets (or vice versa).


No Cargo Hold

On a commercial flight, pets are usually placed in the cargo hold. This can be a scary and stressful experience for pets, especially if they’re not used to being separated from their owners. But on a private flight, there’s no need for a cargo hold. Your pet can travel with you in the cabin, where they’ll be safe, comfortable, and happy.


Traveling with your pet via private flight is a game-changer. With L’VOYAGE’s exclusive pet-friendly Gulfstream G100, we now offer even more pet travel availability for our clientele.

So next time you’re planning a trip, consider all these benefits of booking a private flight when bringing your pet along for the ride. You won’t regret it!
