The check in process

Receiving pets on private jet from overseas.
Appointment needs to be made with the local authority eg AFCD in Hong Kong, to ensure there are staff on hand to check the pets microchip and other documents, when you arrive.
Safely and care in the air
Apart from convenience, this is the appeal of private jet. Being together with a pet enables you to reassure them and let them take their medical treatments if required.
Private jets are usually designed to climb faster than bigger planes, so they’re above bad weather sooner- so flights are smoother. They have more advanced air pressure systems than commercial airlines, e.g. the Gulfstream G650 is pressurized to 3,000 ft/ 914 metres, twice as low as commercial airlines. This low pressure in the cabin reduces fatigue and is less tiring and you and your pets can take rest better.
