What to Expect When Your Pet Travels to USA

Our highly qualified team of animal loving experts work together to ensure your pet’s comfort, safety and welfare is top priority.  Working in collaboration, our teams work with you to get your pet ready for their travel journey and on their flight who include:

Pet Travel Consultants just like a travel agent, they will organise your flights to USA in line with your travel arrangements as best as possible and include a special pet delivery service to your new home.  Our team will require all the important details of your pet including health conditions, microchip details, vaccination history and information to ensure your pet will be comfortable on their overseas adventure.

Pet Handlers can collect your pet from your residence, transport them into our transit lounge for a stretch, toilet stop and a drink of water.  Once your pet has been cleared for flying, they will be safely transported to the airport and checked in for their flight USA bound.  Depending on your itinerary, our Pet Handlers will provide a pet travel update prior to your pet being checked in on the aircraft when travelling through one of our Transit Lounges.

In-House Vets are available to provide the export veterinary requirements for entering USA and ensure your pet is in the ideal condition before they embark on their long flight ahead.

Connecting Flights & The Luxury of a Comfort Stop for Your Pet

Depending on your flight carrier and itinerary, your pet may require connecting flights and/or a comfort stop. Comfort stops are designed to give your pet a short break whilst they are in transit on route to their final destination. At Jetpets, we have dedicated and trusted partners around the world that cater for your pets comfort stop on our behalf.  In the USA, we are proud to use our sister company, Pet Express who are equipped with boarding/accommodation facilities to house your pet on their short or long term comfort stop and look after any onforwarding travel within the USA.

What Happens At The Airport?


  • The captain of the aircraft is aware that your loved one is on board their flight
  • The captain will set the temperature to approx. 18 degrees Celsius so that the animals are comfortable
  • The cabin is dimly lit so that your loved one can see what is going on around them
  • What we feel and hear in the cabin of the plane is the same as what animals experience (except in a travel crate they have much more legroom than us!).
