Travelling is great and all, but it can be heartbreaking to part with your furry friends. Many pet owners are forced to choose between leaving their beloved companions behind or placing them in the plane’s cargo section all alone. Plus, there are endless rules about pet sizes, breeds, and carriers to consider.
But now, a new era is dawning for passengers flying with pets. Private airline company K9 Jets has started offering pet-friendly flights between New York and Paris, Lisbon, and London. Their mission is to provide an on-demand pay-per-seat private jet for you and your furry friend. You have two choices: you can buy a separate seat for your pet or your pet can sit on the floor with no additional charges.
Although the company offers fixed prices for its seats and passengers are only expected to pay for the seats they buy, a private jet comes with its expenses. A seat on a K9 Jets flight will cost you about $9,000, which includes your seat, taxes, snacks, and refreshments.
It’s pretty steep, but who can put a price on peace of mind, eh? You and your furry companion will walk straight onto the plane without any queues, cages or cargo sections. And at least you know exactly who you’ll be sitting next to for the next few hours.
