Private jets are undoubtedly one of the most luxurious ways to travel. Lucky passengers get to skip long airport lines and enjoy plenty of onboard amenities. But one private aviation company wanted to extend that pampered experience to a different type of flyer: pets.

VistaJet recently unveiled its new pet program, VistaPet that aims to make flying a luxurious experience for pets and owners alike. What does that entail exactly? Onboard passengers get a VistaPet Pochette aka a bag with items to take care of pets during and after a flight.

Passengers and their pups get bio-organic pet food from Rockster, a handmade Labbvenn sleep mat, a Random Rewards treats created by Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux, a Kibble Pet’s Travel Care Kit with water-free shampoos and soothing, and rope toys by Furzu will keep dogs entertained throughout the flight.

In addition to the pet perks, VistaJet’s customer service team will provide passengers with information on pet travel regulations depending on the destination such as details on vaccinations, microchips, permits and certificates. They will also arrange a fear of flying course for dogs with The Dog House to help ease your pooch into the experience during a flight.

Working with veterinary practitioners, groomers, dieticians, and coaches, the company ensured their offerings actually helped ease the anxiety for pets. For example, they worked with a clinical veterinarian, Dr. Bruce Fogle, to develop a balanced menu to keep pets hydrated and healthy. Cabin hosts can offer natural flower essences to mix with pets’ drinking water to aid relaxation during the flight.

And when you land, a team can help guide you to the best pet-friendly hotels and pet salons. The team can also help book pet walkers or trainers, and set up on-ground experiences like pet yoga and surfing. They’ll even arrange for a photographer to capture those special moments with your pet in a destination. The reason for the offering? VistaJet has seen a 104% increase in the number of animals flown over the last two years. In fact, one in four members regularly flies with their pet. “The VistaPet program makes traveling with pets seamless,” said the company in a release. “Even at the destination.”
