VistaJet launches global pet travel program as it sees a 104% increase in animals flying

VistaJet, the first and only global business aviation company, announced today the launch of VistaPet, the most comprehensive program designed to ensure all passengers feel welcome – even if they are four-legged.

Emerging travel behavior trends highlight why offering solutions to provide for animals is increasingly important:

  • VistaJet has seen a 104% increase in the number of animals flown over the last two years;

  • One in four VistaJet Members flies regularly with their loyal companions, and an estimated 30 million people travel with their pets each year;

  • There was a 47% increase in the number of dogs flying on board VistaJet in 2018 against the previous year;

  • For many, pets are simply part of the family – 95% of American animal owners agree as they become increasingly integrated into our lives;

Travel standards to date have failed to reach expected service levels, with 75% of owners distrusting commercial airlines to safely care for their pets, making the journey stressful for both animal and human.

VistaPet has been designed in collaboration with experienced veterinary practitioners, groomers, dieticians and coaches to respond to the needs and challenges faced when traveling with animals. From care kits, sleep mats and balanced menus, to travel advice, global flying regulations and fear of flying courses, all VistaJet passengers can expect the same exceptional service and support.

The most comfortable journey with a pet starts with a simplified booking service, continues with a happy and uneventful flight, and ends at a pet friendly destination.
