Volunteer as a flight buddy
FROM STREET TO SOFA: FLY A DOG HOME
Planning a trip to Thailand? You can add some extra feel-good factor to your holiday by volunteering as a Jai Dog Rescue flight buddy! It doesn’t cost you a penny, and we handle the entire process for you, making the experience simple and stress-free for all involved.
By accompanying a rescue dog home, you’ll be helping them to complete the journey from street to sofa, bringing them one step closer to happiness.
How it works
If you’re flying from Thailand to anywhere in mainland Europe (even if this is just a stopover on your way back to the UK), you can add an animal to your ticket. We sort all the paperwork and costs, so it won’t cost you a penny and requires no admin from you.
All you need to do is show up at Bangkok airport as normal, where a member of our team (and your canine flight buddy!) will be waiting for you. We’ll help you get checked in, and your dog will be taken to the special animal waiting area, before being loaded into the hold: don’t worry, it’s perfectly safe.
Once you’ve landed in Europe, someone from our pet courier service will meet you and collect your flight buddy with you…and that’s it! You’re then free to check into your next flight, or carry on with your journey home as planned.
Unfortunately, not all airlines accept pets on their flights. Additionally, UK regulations restrict the use of flight volunteers. Therefore, you’ll need to be flying from Thailand to mainland Europe – ideally Paris, Belgium or Amsterdam.
Eligible airlines include: Aeroflot, Air France, ANA (All Nippon Air) Asiana, Austrian Airlines, China Airlines, EVA, Finnair, JAL (Japanese Airlines), Korean Air, KLM, Lufthansa, Qatar, Swiss, and Thai Airways.
