At Access Jet Group, we get a lot of questions about how to best transport your belongings when flying. This is by far one of the biggest advantages of using a private plane broker, since you have more space for your cargo and more control over how it’s handled.
We’ve put together our top best practices to keep in mind when bringing your most precious people and items on board. Whether you’re traveling to Art Basel in Miami, a high end auction, or simply taking a vacation with your entire family (pets included!), we’re helping you move from Point A to Point B in the best possible way:
1. Keep Valuables in the Cabin
When you book with a private plane broker, you have the added flexibility in keeping your valuables close to you or storing them in the cargo area. On most private aircraft, you have significantly more overhead luggage space in the cabin, which makes your precious items accessible to you at any point in the flight.
We’ve had art collectors load their new investments into the cabin and serve as inspiration for the trip home. We’ve had families who are relocating bring many items from their home on board, such as fine rugs or small pieces of furniture. The most important thing is that you have more options with a private flight versus a commercial one, not to mention the added security and privacy of getting your items on board.
2. Ensure Your Pet Has Proper Documentation
Flying with your pets is a much easier experience on a private aircraft. Pets are less confined and don’t have to endure the stress of airports and crowds. And unlike commercial flights, pets are always welcome.
If you plan for your pet to roam about the cabin with you, you will need to have proper documentation detailing your pet’s health and vaccine history. Depending on where you’re flying, the Access Jet Group team can advise on the specifics you need when crossing into another country.
3. Make Cargo Arrangements Ahead of Time
One thing to keep in mind that is you can contact your private plane broker ahead of time and let them know what you plan on bringing on board. Our team at Access Jet Group has accommodated guests with a range of items, including prized art work, pets, jewelry, or other precious cargo. We can offer advice on how best to transport these items on an individual basis, as well as prepare the cabin crew to offer special care and assistance when loading items onto the aircraft. Just let us know how we can help.
As a general rule, a private plane broker is your best support system for transporting precious cargo, be it your prized possessions, your pets, or your family members. At Access Jet Group, we give careful attention to your travel party and belongings to ensure a smooth transition from takeoff to landing.
