Specific times of the day have flight restrictions for noisier aircraft models. LunaJets can assist with navigating these regulations and, where possible, obtain waivers to ensure flexibility for your travel schedule.

Travel with Pets

  • Declaration and Checks: Pets imported from non-EU countries must be declared and presented to Customs for document and identity checks, fulfilling all health requirements imposed by Regulation (EU) 576/2013.
