Most people have a love-hate relationship with air travel. Why? Because they love the fact that they can get to their destination anywhere in the world within a matter of hours – but, dealing with all that comes along with commercial air travel can lead to too much unwanted aggravation and headaches.
From the moment you decide on your destination to the moment you return back home, chartering a private jet enhances the stages of travel.
Deciding on Your Destination
Picking your destination can come with some limits – especially if you don’t want to follow up a long flight with a long car ride. Unfortunately, when you fly commercially, many airports in remote locations cannot accommodate such large aircraft.
Do you know what they can handle? Private jets.
Making the decision to charter a private jet opens up your list of convenient destination spots. You can access small, private airports that will get you closer to where you are going – or allow you to reach places that may have otherwise not been possible.
Booking Your Travel
When was the last time you booked a commercial flight? Did you go through the airline itself? Or work your way through one of the many travel sites? Did you scroll through the hundreds of flights available, some with super early departures or extra long layovers – maybe even more than one?
Once you find the flight that works for you, you have to address whether or not you will be checking a bag, how many bags you have, and where you would like to sit. Based on what you choose, extra fees will be tacked on to the price of your ticket.
You and hundreds of strangers are booking the same flight.
Chartering a private jet is a much more pleasant experience. You can either grab a quote online or simply call the charter company. Once you know your destination and the number of people who are traveling with you, they can help you find the perfect private jet for your getaway – and give you a quote.
You won’t have to worry about finding one that departs at a convenient time because you choose the departure time. The most comfortable seating as well as your luggage are all included so you won’t have to worry about any hidden costs.
When booking your jet is an overall great experience, you know that the flight is going to be even better.
Arriving at the Airport
When you fly on a commercial airliner, you are required to arrive at the airport at least two hours in advance for a domestic flight and three hours in advance for an international flight. Once there, overcrowded spaces, long lines, and a lot of waiting around await you. Doesn’t sound exciting at all, does it?
Now, let’s talk about the enhanced version of this story. You know, the one where you decide to charter a private jet. In this scenario, you don’t have to worry about any wasted time. Rather than showing up hours in advance, you only need to show up about 15 to 20 minutes ahead of departure.
In many cases, these charter jets fly out of private airports which means they are much more accessible with easy parking, too. You will find no long lines to check in or to check baggage. You also won’t have to wait in a long line to get through TSA security checkpoints, either. This makes the experience so much easier.
Depending on the FBO, you may find an enhanced experience inside. This includes comfortable lounges, drinks and refreshments, business centers, and more. In other words, if you are early for your flight – you can enjoy what the FBO has to offer.
Running a little bit late? No big deal. Just call ahead and let the flight crew know that you need a few extra minutes. You are the passenger, so they won’t take off without you.
Have you ever tried to get comfortable and enjoy a movie, read a book, take a nap, get some work done, or talk to your travel mate while on a commercial airliner? If so, then you know it isn’t the most comfortable thing at all. And, when it comes to work, you are sure to be breaking some confidentiality rules along the way.
Truth is, commercial air travel is all about getting you to and from your destination – in the most efficient way for the airline. If they can take 2 more inches off your leg space and put in one more row of seats, they will!
Your most enhanced in-flight experience is going to come from a private jet charter.
You can do anything while on board a private jet and expect luxurious comfort and privacy. You won’t have to worry about disturbing others or encountering any intrusion while trying to have a conversation or get work done.
What’s more, you can have access to catered meals, refreshments, inflight entertainment systems, and more. Feel like stretching out and napping before you reach your destination? Many jets have seating that can transform into a bed for your convenience and comfort.
Arriving at Your Destination
Once you arrive at your destination, commercial travel means finding your way through the busy airport, waiting on the luggage that you hope didn’t get lost along the way, and then securing your own way to wherever you are going.
A private jet charter lands and you have your luggage immediately – with no chance it could get lost. If needed, the concierge team can book ground transportation for you so that you can get to where it is you are going with ease.
