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.
We're on hand to make your experience as a flight buddy as easy and enjoyable as possible. Our team will make sure that all paperwork and costs are covered, and you'll be supported throughout the journey to make sure everything runs smoothly.
We're thrilled that you'd like to help fly a Jai Dog home. Tell us a little more about your forthcoming trip, and a member of our team will be in touch to provide more information and talk you through the simple process:
If you're flying from Thailand to mainland Europe and would like to help a stray dog make the journey from street to sofa, we'd be so grateful for your support. You can find more information about volunteering as a Jai Dog Rescue flight buddy below, or contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions.
You can fly from anywhere in Thailand: however, Bangkok is the preferred location as it's easy for the team to get to, and therefore means shorter transit times for our dogs.
UK and Scandinavian regulations restrict the use of flight volunteers, so unfortunately you won't be able to accompany a dogs as a flight buddy if you're flying direct to the UK.
However, the majority of airports and airlines in mainland Europe support flight volunteer initiatives. 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.
We prefer flight volunteers who have flights scheduled to / via: Paris, Brussels or Amsterdam
Nothing! We sort all the costs and paperwork in advance, so there's no additional cost incurred for you. Your buddy will simply tag along on the same ticket as you, so once you've booked your travel, that's all you need to do.
Of course, every step of the way. A member of the Jai Dog Rescue team will be there to meet you at the airport in Thailand and will help you through the check in process. Someone will also be waiting at the other end to meet you and your buddy when you land, and they'll take over everything from there.
