Upgraded Safety Protocols for Pets on Private Jets
By David CastilloSeptember 1, 2010
[Sit ‘n Stay press release] — Carol Martin, head of Sit ‘n Stay Global LLC, and leading pet travel expert, announced new guidelines for flying with pets aboard private jets. The procedures will help cabin crews and owners deal with the unique situation of having pets in the cabin of their jets.
“One of the nice things about traveling by private jet is sharing the trip with your best friend. This can also mean considering some new pre-flight and in-flight procedures to protect your pet while on board. Not to mention taking care of your investment in the aircraft.” Martin said.
A few of these considerations start with a pre-flight briefing that includes bracing positions for your pet depending on size and location in the cabin. Another requirement is a size appropriate car harness attached to your pet’s designated seat with a blanket draped over the seat to secure your pet during turbulence. The blanket helps protect that nice buttery leather from Fido’s claws which he will use for traction and also aids in evacuating an injured pet. These are just a sample of issues to be covered before your flight to make sure your flight is safe and relaxing. Just as too many pets have been lost in cargo holds of commercial aircraft, too many have died or been injured unnecessarily in the cabins of private jets because they were improperly secured in the cabin.
She added, “Our business is providing cabin crews that are trained, not only in the highest safety, culinary and service standards of private flight attendants, but also how to insure the flight goes smoothly with Fido along.”
Sit ‘n Stay Global is a national pet “nanny” and pet sitting organization that provides discreet, secure and loving care to each client’s best friend on board the aircraft, at the destination or in the client’s home.
