Our Top 5 Reasons To Charter A Private Jet

We all know the problems associated with commercial air travel, such as cancellations, delays, overbooking, missed connections, bad customer service and lost or delayed luggage.  It’s frustrating and tiresome for today’s travellers, which is why private jet travel is becoming more popular with passengers looking to avoid these common problems.

Private air travel is convenient, flexible, safer and most importantly it gets you to your destination on time with no stress or hassle. Here are our top 5 reasons for booking a private jet whether it’s for a business flight or a family holiday.

1 Time

In today’s fast paced world, time is your most important factor. It can be the difference between getting that business deal done or making the most of your precious leisure time. A private jet flight allows you to maximise your time. Compared to a scheduled flight where you have to arrive at the airport two hours before your flight a private jet charter you can turn up just 20 minutes prior to departure.

There are no long check-ins or security checks to endure, on some flights it’s possible to turn up and board your aircraft straight away. Whether it’s for a business or leisure flight you’re guaranteed to save time travelling to and from your destination. In terms of time and stress free travel a private jet flight is incomparable.

2 Flexibility

With a private jet charter you’re in charge of the time that you want to fly not the airlines. You can choose to depart from smaller regional airports that commercial airlines do not have access to, allowing for greater flexibility when travelling for business or leisure purposes. This places your staff on the ground closer to their final destination, saving time and any additional costs such as overnight stops at hotels. You can schedule trips efficiently at any hour of the day or night according to time zones.

There are over 3,000 airports in Europe available to private jets compared to just 300 for commercial airlines. Whilst in the US there are approximately 4,500 airports compared to just 400 for scheduled airlines.

If you have a business meeting in two places during the day it’s possible to achieve this on a private jet as you and your team can leave at a time in the morning, prepare on route and when you’ve finished your first meeting you can then fly to your next meeting without the threat of delay. If the meeting over runs for any reason your aircraft will simply wait until you get there, so you don’t have to rush or worry that your flight will be missed.

3 Privacy And Safety

When you fly private rest assured that, your employees or family are travelling in a safe and secure environment. With today’s security issues at major airports and travel in general, nothing is more important than your safety. Flights are being diverted due to unruly behaviour by passengers and being delayed because of threats, it’s no wonder more people are choosing to fly private.

Conduct work in private without any prying eyes on your work, as a family the aircraft is all yours so you can relax without the worry of other passengers complaining. In general private jet terminals are separate from the main hub airport, allowing you to arrive in private.

4 Cost Effective

When you charter a private jet, you pay for the whole aircraft regardless of how many people are travelling. If you fill the aircraft then the cost of your flight is comparable to a first or business class ticket per person. With the added benefits such as time being saved and being able to fly to numerous airports closer to your destination.
