Autumn 2021

Private Aviation & Premium Travel
Pet Care on Air

VistaJet, a global business aviation company, has further expanded its comprehensive VistaPet programme, as the number of animals onboard soared 86 per cent over the last two years and global pet ownership continues to rise.

VistaJet’s team of over 200 cabin hostesses now has tuition in all segments of pet first-aid to ensure safety for all in-flight and the loyal companions receive the same leading service as their owners.

The extensive training programme includes:  Pet CPR procedures; recognising warning signs of chocking; checking vital signs such as heart rate, varying pulse locations and body temperature; understanding indications of poisoning; and crew members also learn how to read body language, whether that be a friendly dog holding its ears up and a loosely wagging tail, a fearful dog with ears back and tail tucked, etc.

Matteo Atti, EVP Marketing & Innovation at VistaJet, said: “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 per cent 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.

“With one-in-four members flying with pets, VistaJet is dedicated to ensuring dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, and any other guests benefit from the same unparalleled service their owners expect from us.”

VistaJet makes flying private with pets seamless, even at destination.

VistaPet’s leading offerings also provide additional solutions for comfort and health, including: Fear of flying courses for fearful ones; balanced menus to keep animals healthy and hydrated; a safe and soft cabin; and in-flight amenity kits.

The VistaPet Pochette includes bio-organic, nutritional pet food from Rockster, treats created by Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux for The Dog House, and Kibble Pet’s water-free shampoo and wipes for salon-quality fur care. For inflight entertainment, there are Furzu rope toys.
