Can you take pets on a private jet? Yes! Pet jets are a common aviation requirement and Flight Charter has arranged many private pet flights over the years. Dogs on private jets is a frequent request, however pet friendly private jet charter is available for many animals – flights for dogs, cats, birds, reptiles.. we have even had a request to move monkeys! We are experts when it comes to charter flights with pets, having arranged many pet air charter over the years.

We understand that your pet is a part of the family, so you can be sure they will be well looked after for the entire process including boarding, during the private flight, disembarkation and the eventual reunion with you. Pet jets are the safest way to move your beloved pet.

Commercial airlines move pets in the luggage hold, which are often too hot or cold, dark and noisy. This results in a stressful environment for pets, which is why many people prefer travelling with pet by private jet charter. There may also be the need for multiple stops with a commercial flight, extending the time your pet is separated from you. A direct route is arranged with private air travel for pets. In fact, all problems and safety issues are easily solved with pet friendly charter flights.

Pet friendly private jet charter ensures a temperature controlled luxury journey. In most cases, direct flights are arranged to minimise the time your pet spends in transit and minimise unnecessary stress. A key benefit to travelling by private plane is that the itinerary is tailored to you and your needs. This flexibility simply cannot be matched by commercial airlines. It is not necessary for you to be on the flight with pets, we can arrange for them to meet you at your destination or travel prior to your trip if required.

Flying with pets – frequently asked questions!

Can I bring pets onboard a charter flight?

Yes, the great thing about charter is you can bring your pets on board and they can be in the cabin with you (not in cargo). Some flights will require a crate, and we can help you work out the size you need. Read more about crates for pet flights here

Can I fly pets of any type (i.e guinea pigs, lizards, birds etc)?

Yes, most operators will allow you to bring different kinds of pets on board. Make sure you let us know what kind of animal you want to transport, their weight, breed (not mandatory but helpful) and the dimensions of their pet crate. Then we can recommend different aircraft options to suit your needs. Please ensure you have checked the biosecurity rules of bringing pets into the country and state you are travelling to as well as additional restrictions, paperwork, vaccinations and quarantine requirements that may apply.

Can I send my pets on flights on their own, without me or someone accompanying them?

Yes, pets can travel on their own, you would just need to supply the contact details of the person dropping off and collecting your pet on the other side.

I don’t have a pet crate, can you supply one for me?

Yes, on most occasions we will be able to assist with hiring a crate for you for an additional cost. Learn more about crates for pet flights here.

Can I book my pet to travel on a flight that’s already flying / travelling with other pets to save on costs?

We work with a number of pet transport companies that offer a spot on flights already running, so if this is of interest please reach out to the Flight Charter team for more info.

“Fantastic! Cian was determined to get my puppy from Perth and she did it! We were able to get a chartered flight from Perth to Melbourne. The communication was fantastic every step of the way and we were able to track the plane. My puppy flew in style with 2 others from her litter with no risk of being left on a hot tarmac.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Sue Womersley

“Needing to return to Melbourne quickly with our 2 dogs, and the commercial airlines not allowing us to fly with our dogs from Cairns/Melbourne ….. we decided to fly with All expectations were met. We were more than satisfied with the service – no hassles with checking in or waiting around with crowds / COVID. Our Pilot Logan took care of the luggage and within 15 mins. we were off. Great aircraft – very smooth flight with comfortable armchairs, refreshments and champagne. A fabulous experience.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Wendy Futschik

“Flight Charter helped me with a private charter plane to transport my 3 cats from Melbourne to Queensland. Everything went smoothly and the pilots were very friendly. We all arrived with minimal fuss and stress.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Angela Plakidis

“We flew our dog out from the UK to Australia where she spent ten days in quarantine in Melbourne. She was then due to fly on to Brisbane. Unfortunately after multiple flight cancellations due to Covid, it looked like our poor doggy may be stranded in Melbourne! Thankfully Flight Charter saved the day! In just a few hours (late on a Friday night), they were able to charter a flight for our dog from Brisbane to Melbourne, where she received first class service! Within 24 hours of contacting them, our dog was safely in Brisbane! I am especially grateful to Cian Voets of FlightCharter, who spent her Friday evening and Saturday morning organising this for us! Would wholly recommend using this company both for humans and canines alike!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Elizabeth Goode

“During the COVID-19 pandemic – Dogtainers have had to find solutions to reunite families with their furbabies. Tasmania was a particularly hard problem to solve; as we have had so many pets to relocate both from and to Tasmania. This is where Flight Charter came to the rescue. Offering solutions that would enable Dogtainers transfer these Pets to their families. The whole process could not of been easier from the scope of work required, loading of the aircraft to the delivery of the service, all was very seamless. Our clients and their pets which ranged from Small exotic parrots through to 65kg Mastiffs all travelled amazingly well in temperature controlled luxury throughout.”
