Rent a private plane to fly with a parrot
The Italian Private Jets company provides services for the organization of business aviation flights with parrots and birds on board a business jet. We will find a suitable plane where you can take a pet directly in the cabin of the liner, next to you. We have got 15 years of work in business aviation, and we have accumulated a lot of experience in comfortable transportation of pets, together with their owners. We will help you collect all the necessary documents and take care of organizational issues. We will provide you and your parrot with maximum comfort at all stages of the flight.
Parrots, like other birds, are transported on airplanes much less often than dogs and cats. There are certain mandatory requirements for the air transportation of birds. The list of documents required for importation into the country can be obtained at the consulate of the state or by contacting the airline. Italian Private Jets will help to organize a private flight with a parrot inside Italy and to other European countries. We will take care of all the nuances so that the customs services do not have unnecessary questions, and you will pass customs and border control without any problems.
Rules of air transportation of parrots
The package of documents for the parrot is prepared for each country separately. In almost all states, they require:
- A certificate from a veterinarian confirming the health of the bird and the absence of infectious diseases;
- An international veterinary passport indicating the vaccinations and procedures for the removal of parasites;
- Certificate of chipping (banding) of the feathered;
- Negative infection tests;
- A certificate for a parrot or a contract of sale.
When assessing the possibility of importing birds into the country during a customs inspection, they are guided by the CITES list. It specifies which birds and animals cannot be imported into the state. All documents must be translated into the official language of the destination country or into English.

Conditions for transporting a parrot on a private plane
On ordinary civil aviation aircraft, birds are allowed to be transported both in the luggage compartment and in the cabin. If the parrot's cage is more than 115 cm in size (the sum of all sides), then it is transported only in luggage or by buying a separate place.
The parrot should only be in a carrier for the entire flight, so special requirements are imposed on it:
- Birds in airliners are transported only in special carriers with all necessary certificates. The use of self-made structures is prohibited;
- The carrier should have such a size that the bird can spread its wings in it;
- If the flight is planned in summer, then a cage with metal bars will do. If it is planned for winter, choose such carriers in which the bird will be reliably protected from cold air;
- All devices inside the structure, including a drinking bowl and a feed bowl, must be securely fastened;
- The bottom of the cage should not leak moisture, and a reliable lock must be attached to the door.
During the flight, it is not recommended to open the cage with the parrot and release the feathered one into the wild. You need to take absorbent diapers or napkins with you, this will keep it clean, both in the carrier and in the cabin of the aircraft. Two birds in one cage are not placed on board liners. That is, you will have to purchase two specialized carriers for two parrots. During the flight, the cage can be covered with a dark cloth, birds behave more calmly in the dark.
The cost of the flight depends on the type of liner

Features of transportation of parrots in business aviation
Civil airlines often require an additional fee for the transportation of pets and birds. Renting a business jet allows you to hold a pet in most cases without additional fees, it is only possible to take a deposit for accidental damage to upholstery or furniture in the cabin.
The air transportation of parrots in private planes is practically no different from the transportation of birds on a regular flight. However, in a business jet, a parrot can be taken to the salon regardless of its size and dimensions of the cage. It will be necessary to collect all the documents that will be required upon landing at the airport and make sure that they are translated at least into English.
When planning a flight with a pet parrot, you need to know exactly the answers to several questions:
- Is it possible to export a bird of your kind from the country?
- Is it permissible to transport a parrot through a transit state?
- Does the destination country accept your pet for import?
- What documents will be required to be presented at customs, and what are the specifics of their registration?
- Is there a quarantine on arrival?
If you get answers to all these questions, then you can be sure that the flight will take place calmly and without unnecessary problems at the airports of takeoff and landing.
Italian Private Jets has been transporting customers with pets for more than 15 years, so we know exactly what requirements each state in Europe has for the import of pets. When booking a business jet with us, you can no longer worry about anything - the air broker will prepare a list of necessary documents, send all requests, and clarify the current conditions for the import of animals.
Private planes have all the conditions for the safe transportation of animals. Modern airliners are equipped with complexes that provide a healthy microclimate and optimal temperature and pressure indicators. In such conditions, birds feel comfortable and practically do not feel the changes associated with being in an unfamiliar environment. During the flight, we can offer the parrot suitable fruits, grains, and water.
Which parrots cannot be transported on business jets?
A bird will not be allowed on a private plane without a certificate from a veterinarian confirming the absence of contraindications to flight and importation to another state. Of course, private airlines can take a sick bird on board, but the owner must understand that due to overloads, a weakened parrot may die. A sick pet will not be accepted at the final destination, so you should carefully think about this moment in advance and make a plan B.
All the nuances of air travel with birds need to be clarified in advance. If parrot species are included in the CITES list, then it is necessary to obtain a permit allowing the pet to be imported into the country but without its subsequent sale. The CITES definitely does not include collared and wavy parrots, lovebirds, or corella.
Flying by private plane is one of the most convenient and safe ways to transport a pet parrot around the cities of Italy and Europe. Traveling by business jet takes a minimum of time, so the psychological state of the bird practically does not suffer. Our employees prepare the flight so that the relevant services do not have any additional questions. If necessary, we will help you get all the documents for the parrot required for the import of the bird into the country.
After signing a business jet rental agreement, you can pay for the service in cash, by bank card, cryptocurrency, or with an invoice. If necessary, we always meet customers halfway and select the most acceptable payment options for them. We cooperate with leading Italian and European banks – therefore, in most cases, we manage to make all the necessary payments promptly.
We provide all the necessary documentation for your accounting department and prescribe transparent conditions for canceling flights (in case your plans have changed). We always try to find a consensus with the owners of the aircraft and make sure that the amount of the fine is minimal, especially if the flight was canceled due to force majeure.
How to pay for a flight
- We agree on the terms of the contract and send it to you by e-mail or messenger
- We issue you an invoice with a fixed price
- After the receipt of payment, we secure the board for you
If you have any questions or would like to get advice from our specialist, fill out the form below or call us.
Italian Private Jets is always happy to provide the service of transporting customers with pets to any country. We can take both classic pets and exotic animals, including birds and rodents.
When applying for a business jet rental, be sure to indicate which animal you are taking with you, its approximate weight, age, health status, and character traits. The operator will give you complete information within 30-50 minutes:
- whether your breed of animal can be imported into the country of arrival;
- a list of documents that will be required when checking in for a flight with a pet and when landing at the arrival airport;
- requirements of the owner of the liner or the operator for the transportation of an animal on board a business jet.
All the nuances of flying with an animal are discussed with a personal aviation expert and are reflected in the contract. We provide all our clients with all possible assistance during the preparation of the flight and during the flight. An international veterinary certificate, which must be obtained within 5 days before departure, can be issued by a veterinarian cooperating with our company. However, this service is not available in all European countries.
Stages of flight preparation
If you want to rent a business jet, it is enough to submit an application by phone, via online messengers, or by leaving a request on the company's website. After agreeing on the specifics of a private flight, it is prepared in four stages:
- The first is flight planning. Flight requests are sent, and private planes suitable for the client's requirements are selected. As a rule, initially, we send 3-6 options to the client. If one of them responds to you, we will book a business jet, and if not, we will adjust and continue the search. The technical department deals with security issues, and the legal department controls all the international subtleties of flight organization;
- A contract is concluded with the client. The contract prescribes the duties and responsibilities of the parties, the date of departure, the level of service, additional services. It is mandatory to indicate the cost of the flight and payment terms;
- The third stage involves providing a flight. The team of air brokers responsible for the organization of the flight repeatedly checks requests for take-off and landing of aircraft and for parking at the airport. Specialists are also responsible for receiving slots, submitting requests to aviation services, to VIP halls, catering on board, transfer;
- The fourth stage is the private flight itself. A personal aviation consultant is engaged in passenger registration, ordering passes. The broker has all the relevant information about the status of the flight and will help you go through all the procedures in an accelerated version.

Book a flight
You can book a private flight online through a special form on the website. After receiving the request, the air broker will contact you to clarify the details, after which we will promptly provide suitable options. At the same time, if you are not satisfied with the price, the year of manufacture of the aircraft, or any other nuances, we will adjust the search and offer alternative options.
You can also order a private jet rental via WhatsApp, Telegram, and e-mail messengers. The company accepts orders around the clock. It is possible to organize urgent flights in 3-5 hours after the request. However, if you want to get the perfect option, we recommend that you make applications in advance so that the operator has more time to search for a business jet and negotiate terms with its owner.
