We all had a fantastic flight
London, UK (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
Private Jet Central has made its first flight across the Atlantic carrying some unique passengers. Three Golden Labradors and their owner made a safe and enjoyable flight from the Luton Airport to the US earlier this month. Rightly concerned about the welfare of her pets the owner decided that a commercial flight was out of the question and turned to Private Jet Central for help.
Worried about the effects a long haul flight alone and in the dark would have on her three boisterous dogs Bowie (4), Bolan (4) and Zappa (3) the owner began to look for other alternatives. Private Jet Central were more than happy to help arrange a charter flight from the UK that would avoid the many problems pets face on commercial flights and allow them to travel together. From the moment the party arrived at the Luton FBO the dogs were treated like royalty and spoilt by PJC’s staff there. The three dogs happily boarded a Challenger 300 jet and prepared for the flight with the help of a few relaxing treats. While there were a few nerves before take-off the presence of their owner kept the dogs calm and an enjoyable flight was had by all. During the flight the dogs all enjoyed their favourite foods and were free to explore the cabin and to stretch their legs.
Following the flights arrival in the US at the group went through customs with no delays and completed the final leg of their journey. With a return journey planned in a few weeks the problem of where to fly into needed to addressed as many smaller airports and airfields in the UK do not allow pets and animals to fly into them from overseas destinations. Fortunately Private Jet Central was able to find one (Biggin Hill) that is located conveniently for onward travel with the necessary facilities.
The problems faced by pet owners wishing to travel with their pets overseas are numerous. While some commercial airlines do allow small cats and dogs to travel with their owners in the cabin, larger animals generally have to travel as cargo. While deaths involving the transportation of pets on flights are relatively rare there are enough of them to cause concern to pet owners. In 2011 there were a reported 224 deaths on flights in the US alone. Most problems are related to issues on the ground rather than in the air as the cargo hold for pets is pressurised and temperature controlled following take-off although it will be in complete darkness for the duration of the flight. However delays on the ground, cages being crushed and even animals being sent to the wrong destination are all issues that can cause concern.
The owner of the airborne animals said “I would like to thank Private Jet Central for their help arranging this flight” and “We all had a fantastic flight”.
