How to fly with your dog when money is no object

Imagine that you are about to pack your suitcase for a long-awaited vacation, and your four-legged friend looks at you with his soulful eyes. The thought of leaving them behind tugs at your heart, especially when the only travel options seem less than ideal.

As commercial airlines tighten the leash on traveling with pets, your four-legged friend often finds themselves in a comfy carrier or, even worse, isolated in the cargo hold. But what if there was a better solution?

Enter the world of private jet charter companies like Bark Air and K9 Jets, which realize there is a segment of dog owners willing to break the bank for a chance to soar into the skies with their pets in luxury. No more cramped spaces or lonely journeys: just you and your pet, flying high with ease and comfort.

Transporting dogs from coast to coast

Bark Air is making transcontinental hugs a reality, starting with routes from New York to Los Angeles and London. It partners with Argus, a platinum-rated charter company.

However, this pet care does not come cheap. Prices vary depending on routes, time of year and round-trip or one-way tickets. For example, flights between New York and Los Angeles cost $12,000 round trip per dog (and the human companion flies for free). A one-way ticket from New York to Los Angeles costs $6,000 and from New York to London costs $8,000.

The company says:

“We plan to add more routes, more infrastructure, more equipment, more staff and more high-end amenities for dogs unlike anything else on the market.”
