Couple spends over $100K to fly beloved cat by private jet from Moscow to Boston

Via PRWeb - Paramount Business Jets is highly regarded around the globe for its exclusive charter jet services. Recently, a very special client experienced firsthand the company's unparalleled customer service and travel planning expertise on his trip from Russia to the United States.

Marsik, a prized blue British Shorthair, often flies by private jet between his owners' homes in the U.S. and Russia. The price tag for his most recent trip came to a bit more than $100,000 - money well spent by his owners to avoid the possibility of mistreatment, and even death, among pets subjected to traveling in the cargo holds of commercial airliners.

"While the trip certainly wasn't inexpensive, we were able to save the client quite a bit over paying for a round-trip by rerouting a Gulfstream G-IV flying an empty leg from London to pick up Marsik and his 'entourage' in Moscow," explained Eric Ammon, Paramount's senior vice-president of sales and services. "Even cats appreciate good value and the chance to save money."

International travel with pets is subject to extensive regulations, and in-depth knowledge of the process is vital to reducing the risk of last-minute complications. Paramount's experienced team of travel professionals assisted with Marsik’s trip from beginning to end, ensuring that mere bureaucratic matters did not delay his travel plans.

In the days leading up to Marsik's journey across the North Atlantic, Paramount also helped to collect Marsik's travel documents and passports, and assisted with scheduling a last-minute veterinary visit so Marsik could obtain his international travel approval.

Once airborne, Marsik had the opportunity to lounge throughout the Gulfstream’s luxurious cabin, taking in the sights from over 40,000 feet and even enjoying a catnap or two. Marsik also entertained guests upon his arrival in Boston, while a U.S. customs official came onboard the aircraft and verified his travel credentials.

"I believe it's fair to say that Marsik was a rather finicky client," added Paramount CEO Richard Zaher. "He had a very particular list of travel requirements, and demanded only the very finest in accommodations throughout his journey. Fortunately, the team at Paramount Business Jets is highly skilled at exceeding even the loftiest expectations of our customers."

  1. Don't blame them. Not a bit. Good for them and good for kitty! Like my dad said when we were discussing how spoiled my chihuahua is, there is enough horrible abuse in this world towards animals, it is good to see an animal spoiled.
