Private jet costing 1.6 lakh per seat hired to rescue stranded pets


A chartered jet is all set to fly 6 pets from Delhi to Mumbai in mid-June. The coronavirus-induced lockdown left a number of people stuck in different parts of the country. Several pets were also left stranded away from their owners due to travel restrictions imposed to control the spread of the deadly virus. According to a source, entrepreneur and cyber security researcher Deepika Singh has now set in motion a plan to help some of these pets reunite with their families.

The 25-year-old from Mumbai said the idea of an 'all-pet' private jet came to her when she was arranging a jet to fly relatives from Delhi, but some of them refused to travel with pets.
"Some people wanted to travel with their pets but when the others refused, I decided to arrange for another jet," Ms Singh told a source. She said the jet for dogs, birds and other animals left behind during the lockdown would help provide a safer ride home for pets who would otherwise be transported through cargo shipments. 
The cyber security researcher got in touch with private jet aggregator Accretion Aviation for a six-seater aircraft exclusively for pets. The entire plane costs Rs 9.06 lakh, with the cost of each seat being Rs 1.6 lakh. 
"I contacted a private company and they agreed to send the pets on a plane," said Ms Singh, according to a report in Divya Bhaskar. So far, four people have signed up to have their pets travel from Delhi to Mumbai in the chartered plane. The passengers that have been signed up for the flight so far include two Shih Tzus, one Golden Retriever and one Lady Pheasant bird. 
"The cost per seat stands at Rs. 1.6 lakh which is already a little steep and if we do not find six passengers it will be even costlier," said Deepika Singh. 
Rahul Muchhal, the owner of Accretion Aviation, said that coronavirus protocol will be followed for the pets as well as their human handlers. The pets will be screened before boarding the flight. They will travel in cages during the flight.
