Flying with Pets on a Private Jet

Cielo Aviation believes that pets are part of the family and we make every effort to ensure that their travel is as pleasant and stress-free as possible. By chartering a Private Jet your pet can travel with you in the aircraft cabin, rather than in the baggage hold.

To ensure a smooth journey, please provide us with the following documentation:

  • For flights between EU member countries, a valid EU pet passport is sufficient
  • For flights between most non-EU countries or for entering the EU from a non-EU-country, such as Great Britain, you will need to provide an Animal Health Certificate (AHC), which must not be older than 10 days at departure. The AHC is valid for four months and can be used for travel within the EU. However, a new AHC is required for each new departure from a non-EU country into Europe
  • In addition to the pet travel documents, for flights outside most EU-member countries, your pet is required to have a microchip, a vaccination against rabies and dogs are required to have a tapeworm treatment
  • When travelling to the USA, your pet needs to be eight weeks old or above, fully weaned and in good health. In addition, dogs are required to have a rabies immunisation as well as a valid health certificate from a licensed veterinarian within 30 days of travel.

How to make your pet's journey safe and enjoyable


Ensure that your pet is in good health

It is essential to take your pet to your veterinarian before departure for a general check-up and to ensure it is in good health, if needed you will obtain a valid health certificate, showing that all vaccinations are up-to-date. I

Limit water and food intake

Water is essential for any pet before departure, but not in excess. Provide a rational amount of water in order to limit the animal’s use of the bathroom during the flight. Limiting food intake is also essential to prevent upset stomach or vomiting while on board. Taking your dog/cat for a little walk before departure can help to calm his nerves and also go to the bathroom before the flight.


Bring your pets favourite toys

To make your pet’s journey more pleasant, bring along toys or blankets they are used to in their daily lives to help them calm down if they are experiencing anxiety.

Bring a solution for in-flight relief

Based on the pet, owners usually bring along training pads or a litter box to provide clean in-flight relief.
