Travelling With Your Pet – Commercial VS. Private Airports

For many of us, our pets are part of our family, and we want to bring them with us on vacation and share the excitement of travel with them. However, flying commercially with your pet is very different to using a private aircraft – here are some insights from Monmouth Executive Airport in New Jersey.

Flying on a commercial airliner with your pet 

  • Paperwork: Your pet needs to be 8 weeks or older and have all required vet vaccinations up-to-date, complete with paperwork. Rabies vaccinations are compulsory, while some airlines also require parvo vaccination certificates.
  • Tickets: Each airline has different booking requirements for pets, so it is important to call ahead and find out exactly what you need to do. Some require fees for travel in the form of a ticket, while others are weighed on-site and dropped off at a specific airport location up to a few hours before your flight.
  • Travel housing: Because your pet will be travelling in a pressurized hold, you will be required to house your pet in a travel kennel that meets certain size specifications. Some airlines also require a food and water supply in the crate. Some airlines will, however, allow you to keep your crated pet in the cabin with you – but only if there is space.
  • Travel experience: Pets are generally separated from their owners and from before they board the aircraft, as they are loaded by staff into the pressurized hold. While every precaution is taken, there have been instances where pets have been left in harsh environmental conditions out on the tarmac while flight delays and other issues are solved. They cannot be monitored properly during the flight and the noise of the experience itself can be very stressful for even the most well-adjusted pets.

Private jet travel with pets 

Flying with a pet from a private airport like Monmouth Executive Airport where we offer world-class FBO services and amenities is a very different experience, both for you and your furry friend. Private jet companies are happy to go above and beyond for all their clients – and this includes pets. Although the same vaccine and health requirements are in place when you fly privately, the similarities stop there.

Simply notify the charter company that your pet will be accompanying you and they will do everything they can to accommodate them in comfort, from keeping your pet with you in the cabin to planning specific meals and treats for your pet. Leashes are important for safety purposes on the tarmac, and crates are advisable for smaller pets to ensure their safety during takeoff and landing, but you will always be in close contact with your pet to keep them calm, happy and enjoying their flight.

3 REASONS TO INVEST IN HANGAR SPACE IN NJ THIS NEW YEAR

It’s the beginning of 2017 and this means it’s the perfect time to take advantage of our new opportunities and invest in hangar space for your aircraft. Find out why from Monmouth Executive Airport and Jetport.

  1. New investment opportunities: The New Year is a great time for businesses and individuals to create new opportunities and make positive changes – and that goes for private airports as well as everyone else. At Monmouth Airport, we’re opening significant acreage for development, including the building and leasing of aircraft hangar space – some of which is already available.
  2. Better variety of options: Finding hangar space is no longer a matter of taking what you can get, when you can get it. Thanks to our new development strategy, private owners and charter companies can utilize hangar space in a way that suits them – all at a competitive rate and available immediately. With hangar space for rent or purchase, as well as a range of t-hangars, communal hangar space and hangars with attached office space, you have different options at your fingertips. In addition, we’re offering the opportunity to also develop custom hangar space that is built according to your exact specifications.
  3. Save money: An aircraft is a significant cost and simply using a tie down and letting it face the harsh elements head on is not maximizing your investment. Not only can your aircraft be damaged by freezing temperatures, wind, storms, sunshine and hail, outdoor aircraft also suffer from more frequent repair and maintenance issues. They usually have to be moved off-site or into a working hangar to get necessary repairs done, while housed aircraft can be worked on in all weather conditions easily and conveniently.
