People love their pets – that’s no secret – and when it comes to flying, owners are understandably concerned about providing a healthy, safe trip for Fido and Fluffy.
Now VistaJet, a global business aviation company, has enhanced its comprehensive VistaPet program due to an 86% increase in the number of pet-related travel requests it has received over the past two years.
Matteo Atti, executive vice president for marketing and innovation at VistaJet, says: ”The fast increase in pet adoptions is paired with a habit of having pets as daily companions. Rabbits are a recent new breed of pet flown by VistaJet, and while dogs continue to make up the majority of animal passengers, the number of cats spiked 357% from 2019 to 2020. It’s important to continually evolve our services to offer best-in-class travel solutions to all our passengers, making them feel safe and cared for at all times. VistaJet is dedicated to ensuring dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and any other guests benefit from the same unparalleled service their owners expect from us.”
As safety, security and the well-being of its clients – even those with four legs – is fundamental for all, VistaJet’s team of more than 200 Cabin Hostesses now have received extensive education with MedAire instructors that includes courses on vital signs, animal behavior, fear of flying, CPR procedures and more.
If VistaJet can provide this kind of stellar service for pets, just imagine how great it makes flying private for humans. – Debbi K. Kickham
