This pandemic has caused many pet owners to be separated from their pets; some are restrained in countries that are miles away from their owners.
Both longing for hugs and kisses from one another, but recently there was an initiative started by a 25-year-old woman, Deepika Singh, when she intended to arrange a private jet to bring her stranded relatives back to Mumbai.
She revealed that some of the relatives refused to travel with pets. Thus this led to the idea of arranging a pets-only flight.
Therefore, the cybersecurity researcher approached Accretion Aviation – an aggregator of private jets, helicopters and yachts – to arrange a six-seater private jet.
According to ThePrint, the entire jet costs Rs 9.06 lakh (about RM51,172), and a single seat is Rs 1.60 lakh (about RM9037).
The owner of Accretion Aviation, Rahul Muchhal, mentioned that the plane will be ready to fly in the second week of June. He also revealed that most people who charter private jets travel with their pets, but the pets are required to be in cages during the flight.
This particular protocol will be followed for Deepika’s all-pet jet as well. Other than the cage requirement, the animals will be screened before boarding, and their temperatures will be taken as well.
Deepika said that so far, she is only arranging one jet to Mumbai, and if she gets a good response, she would consider expanding the operation to other states in India.
