Efficiency, privacy and flexibility. These are just some of the reasons why flying private jet has become so popular over recent years.
While many commercial airliners do offer great business or first class service, there is the domestic seating and numerous time wasters that leave more to be desired.
Whether you are a business traveller looking to get from New York to Paris for a meeting or you are wanting to plan a family vacation with none of the hassles – then flying a private jet is the perfect solution for you!
Here are 10 of the biggest benefits you will experience by choosing to fly with a private jet!
1. Avoid Wasting Time
When you fly commercial airlines, you waste more time than you realise. From getting to the airport, standing in security lines, boarding the plane and collecting your luggage it all adds up and creates a significant backlog when you are flying on a tight schedule.
With private jet’s your average waiting time is around five or six minutes. You do not have to worry about pointless queuing or missing your connecting flight. Business jets let you fly direct to an airport closer to your final destination, have their own security lines and depart when you are ready to fly.
2. You Are In Control Of Your Schedule
Are you tired of trying to find a commercial flight with dates and times that almost fit your schedule? When you fly private charter, you get to dictate when the flight takes off.
Business jets even let you adjust your take off times as you go about your day, making it more convenient than ever to reach your destination when a meeting runs late or to change your arrival airport while still in the air.
3. Avoid Checking In Baggage
Checking in baggage with commercial airlines can often be more drama than its worth. Not only do you have to pay for baggage in most cases, but you also have to conform to their luggage restrictions.
When you fly with a private jet charter, this annoying problem falls away. All baggage is free and can be placed in the storage department or on board making it easy for you to access your luggage during the flight.
4. Delicious 5 Star Cuisine
Even though commercial airlines have tried to improve their in-flight meals, they are never really that great or satisfying. When you fly with private jets, the crew will go out of their way to make sure you have a delicious meal, catered to your requests from fine dining catering companies who employ Michelin-starred chefs.
5. Fly In Comfort
Whether you need to do business, sleep or simply relax, your business jet will have you covered. Even the smallest planes have enough room for you to check your emails, sleep or watch a movie.
If you chose a larger jet, known as “bizliners” you will also be treated to fully-furnished bathrooms, master bedrooms and luxury finishings.
All private planes also come equipped with inflight Wi-Fi, phones, a vast entertainment library and the ability for you to control the cabin environment.
Plus, by taking advantage of deadhead flights, you can get all this luxury for less!
6. Ultimate Privacy
In an age where it is so easy to access information about each other, privacy is becoming more and more valued.
Private jets help you to avoid unwanted attention at the terminals by making sure you are escorted to the plane’s private waiting room where you will only spend a few minutes waiting before being greeted by your pilot to proceed with boarding.
Then once you are in the air, you do not need to worry about other passengers overhearing sensitive information or disturbing your sleep. You are free to behave as you would at home or work without the risk of your privacy being compromised.
When you fly with an executive jet, you have the freedom to select your pilots and flight crew. This will help you gain peace of mind about their qualifications and the ability to get you from point A to point B.
Good private jet operators will also only hire the best pilots and go through a rigorous recruitment process to ensure that their safety management systems surpass any commercial airline.
8. Fly To More Airports Around The World
Another benefit of flying with a private aircraft is their size. As most commercial planes are relatively large, they are unable to land on smaller runways. This is not a problem for private jets which are smaller in size and can give you more choice when it comes to landing at airports around the world.
9. A Faster Trip
Private aircrafts are not tied to the same networks as commercial airlines; this means if you have enough fuel to reach your final destination you will fly direct.
Commercial aircrafts cruise around 35, 000 feet. Private jets are designed to climb and fly even faster. This puts your flight above all the sky traffic, and it avoids competing with bigger planes for space as well.
10. A More Efficient Landing
When it is time to land your private jet crew will call ground transportation to get ready for your arrival. This efficiently takes the hassle out of air travel and once again saves you more time once you have arrived at your destination.
Your executive jet can also organise a limousine to be ready waiting for you as you land so you can get to your hotel or business meeting immediately and without further delay.
So there you have it, ten excellent reasons why you should choose to fly a private jet over a commercial airline next time you need to travel. Not only will you save valuable time and money, but you will not lose out on any of the creature comforts along the way.
