Did you know that both children and pets are frequent fliers of ours here at FlyPrivate? Not only do we welcome the entire family on our private flights, we are also competently equipped to accommodate their often unique requirements.
Whether you and your family are flying from one home to another, traveling to a vacation destination, or in need of transportation to and from an event, we’ve got you covered! Our Client Services team has 18+ years of experience arranging these types of flights and with fellow parents and animal lovers in your corner, we understand the importance of keeping the whole family happy. If you travel with your children, pets, or both, here are a few pointers to make your trip as relaxing and pleasant as possible.
When booking your next family flight, here are just some of the things we take into consideration for our clients:
FlyPrivate with Children
Safety is the number one concern for all of our passengers, especially when flying with children. All of our operators adhere to strict safety guidelines and we only charter aircraft that has met very strict and specific safety standards. All flights arranged by FlyPrivate are operated by Part 135 Certified Air Carriers.
From in-flight games and activities to catered kid-friendly meal options, our goal is to make your private flight as enjoyable as possible for you and your children. If you have a request, we will do our very best to accommodate it.
We understand that adequate, restful sleep is an important part of a child’s daily routine. Many private jets have reclining seats as well as divan seating for a great napping spot. We can also arrange your flight times around a schedule that works best for you and your family.
At times, flying with children can create the need to bring extra luggage on your trip. From strollers to portable cribs, we will make sure your aircraft has adequate space for all of the necessities and extras. Flying private also offers you the added benefit of having car service drop off and pick up right outside of the aircraft. The less time you spend worrying about the details, the more pleasurable and restful your experience will be.
FlyPrivate with Pets
We recognize that pets are an important part of your family. If you choose to fly private, your pets will get the same care and service as his human counterparts. For starters, this means that your pet will be welcome to fly with you and the rest of his family in the cabin.
On commercial flights, most animals are shipped with the cargo, making flying a very stressful experience for the animal and owner. Flying privately helps eliminate this stress and makes for a much more favorable experience for everyone. This can be especially important to clients traveling frequently with their pets.
The rules for flying with pets can vary by country as well as by airport. At FlyPrivate, we will make all of the travel arrangements and make sure your pet has the right documentation ahead of time to board and land at your destinations without any hassle.
As with all members of your family, your pets’ flying experience is very important to us. If you would like any extras on board (i.e. treats, a bed, toys, etc.) we can arrange this for you with advance notice.

Chartering a private jet allows you the opportunity to experience the convenience, timesaving, flexibility, comfort and luxury not
available on a commercial flight, even in first class. In this blog, we will outline the most important things to consider when flying on a private aircraft. We hope this will serve as a helpful resource for first-time private flyers and a good reminder to those of you who are private aviation veterans.
1. Let the experts help you choose the right jet. The jet companyyou choose to work with will be your best and most valuable
resource in this instance. You provide them with the details of the trip (i.e. your flight plan, number of passengers, baggage you will be bringing, amenities you would prefer, and any other needs you would like met) and they should be able to give you several jet
options that will suit those needs and wants.
2. Learn how private charter can save you valuable time and
therefore money. While private jets do not generally travel at faster speeds than commercial airliners, a private flight is undoubtedly faster. This is due to may factors including: more direct routes, less time waiting on the tarmac, easier check-in procedures, no baggage x-rays, security procedures or baggage pickup, car drop off and pickup on the tarmac, and access to private airport terminals that help avoid crowds that can cause additional delays.
3. Safety procedures. All pilots are required to follow the precise policies mandated by the FAR Part 135 regulations, which also
require them to follow a training program approved by the FAA. The program must include recurrent air, ground and emergency training at a Part 142 approved facility. In addition, insurance regulations
require flight simulator training at a Part 142 approved facility. All aircraft are operated by select air carriers that a) have been certified under Part 135 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR); and b) meet the strict standards for safety, administered through a
strategic alliance with Aviation Research Group/U.S. (ARG/US) and other independent auditors.
4. Once you have chosen your jet company, keep the following in mind…
Communicate your needs. Whether your concerns pertain to the aircraft, pilots, crew, FBO, or your trip details, communicate your needs. It is also wise to ask for recommendations if you are
unsure of the options available to you. Do you need a certain type of aircraft due to passenger count, range or baggage? Would Wi-Fi be helpful? Will you be traveling with your pet(s)? Do you need car service or specific catering due to dietary needs?
Communicate your destination address so the closest airport can be determined.
Advanced booking is recommended. While many jet companies can arrange last minute flights, it is in your best interest to plan in advance whenever possible to give you more options in the
booking process. Availability is strongly subject to how far in
advance your trip is booked. Get the exact aircraft you want/need before someone else books it. We recommend a lead-time of 1-2 weeks to have your choice of aircraft. During peak travel seasons and holidays however, booking a month or two in advance is

1. Always tell us in advance if you plan to travel with your pet. We want to ensure that your aircraft is pet friendly and the crew is not allergic to pets.
2. Keep in mind that the rules and regulations will change if you’re flying internationally and each country does have varying laws about the importation of pets.
3. Bring a small, carry-on kennel or crate so your pet is safe during take-off and landing. Most jets allow dogs to fly outside of the crate by their owners’ side during the rest of the flight, as long as they are well behaved.
4. If traveling with your dog, bring a harness in case there is
turbulence on the flight. This will allow the dog to be strapped to a designated seating area with his owner.
5. Bring a cozy blanket your dog can use as a bed during the flight. The blanket will also help protect the seats on the jet from damage.
6. If you’re flying during your pet’s mealtime, be sure to pack food for your dog or we will be happy to arrange to have dog treats on the flight.
7. You may also wish to bring a quiet toy or bone to keep your dog occupied and quiet during the flight.
8. Make sure your pet gets a bathroom break before boarding the aircraft. If you’re planning a longer trip and need a stop-over during your flight to give your dog a break, let us know in advance and we will arrange this for you.
