Comparing Jet Charter To Commercial Air Travel

When you are looking at choices to fly, you usually can choose from a commercial airliner or a private jet charter. To fully understand your options, you need to compare the pros and cons of both.

Convenience
When it comes to the convenience of flying, it’s hard to beat a private jet charter. With a commercial flight, you often have to show up at the airport an hour or more before your flight and wait in long lines at the ticketing counter and for security screening. Then you may wind up waiting for a significant amount of time before you can board your flight. With a private charter flight, you can show up shortly before your flight is to take off, don’t have to worry about any lines and can get in your seat right away.

Comfort
In a private jet, you either will be the only passenger or one of very few. There won’t be any cramped seats wedged in between strangers, and you will get personal attention from the flight staff that not even first class can provide on a commercial flight.

Speed
When you take a commercial flight, unless you are traveling between two large cities, you likely will have to connect at a hub airport and switch planes, this will add an hour or more to your flight. When you have a private jet charter flight, you can fly to any airport that can accommodate the size of plane you are on, which includes most general aviation airports around the country, which means it’s very likely you can fly direct, which will cut down on your travel time.

Cost
About the only advantage commercial flying has over a private jet charter is costs. Whereas a commercial ticket in coach class will cost you a few hundred dollars, the same flight on a private jet will cost a few thousand. However, if you have the means to pay for a private jet charter, the other advantages can be more than worth it.

Advantages of a New York Jet Charter

Many people may think that they can’t afford a New York private jet charter, but there are some big advantages to private air charter travel that can outweigh the costs for certain people and businesses.

Comfort
When it comes to comfort, there is no comparison between commercial air travel and a private jet charter. With a private jet charter, you will get personal service from the time you show up at the office until you arrive at your destination and get off the plane. You won’t get anywhere near that kind of service on commercial travel, even in first class.

Convenience
You can’t beat the convenience of a private jet charter. You won’t have to stand in ticket lines or security lines, and you won’t have to worry about how many bags you can take and whether you need to check a bag or not. You also don’t have to show up at the airport and hour or more before your departure time and you won’t have to fly with dozens or hundreds or other people.

Speed
When it comes to getting to your destination quickly, a private jet charter is the way to go. Private jets fly about as fast as a commercial jet, but it’s on the ground where you make up time. Not having to be bound by a set commercial schedule allows you to fly when it’s most convenient for you. And the fact that you can fly point to point in most cases, without having to stop at a hub airport, will save you hours.

Cost
On a per-ticket basis, a private jet charter is more expensive than even a last-minute first class ticket on a commercial flight. But for a business that has to fly several people to the same destination, a private jet charter might actually be a better deal. It pays to at least check into it and not assume the charter flight will be more expensive.

Private Flights to Reach New Heights

Virgin Galactic is in a race to be the first major private space flight provider. Earlier in 2014, the last test flight resulted in a crash killing the test pilot, and Virgin has since redesigned and rebuilt a new spaceship named SpaceShiptTwo.

Virgin Galactic has not released a date for the first passenger flights, but it is working as fast as it can without risking any more life.

Private Jets Furnishings Customized

One of the perks of flying private aircraft is that the interior of each one is furnished in a style unique to that airplane. Some can even be fitted with golden sinks. This one in particular is styled to mimic a vintage train, for those more old-schooled travelers with time constraints.

The corporate jet can ferry up to 19 passengers with 5 mini-suites for the basic feel of a private train cabin. A wide lounge connects these suites and a parlor for a movie center and room for conversations. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with shower, a private office space, and a convertible sofa and conversation space.

Why Private Jet Travel Is Perfect for Families

When people think of private jet travel, they often believe that only wealthy CEO’s or business travelers fly by private plane. Private jet travel is perfect for families for a number of reasons, and it is not as costly as you might imagine. Read on to discover the best reasons why private jet travel is perfect for that next family vacation.
Avoid Chaos at the Airport
Many families have to travel during school breaks and around holidays. These travel periods are some of the busiest of the year for commercial airports. Commercial flights are often overbooked during peak travel periods. You may end up bumped from the flight if it is over capacity. If not, you might end up on a flight that has every seat full. At the airport, security and check-in lines are long. Travelers and airline employees both get frustrated.
By chartering a private jet, you avoid all of these issues. Private jets typically depart from private terminals or small executive airports. You won’t have to endure long waits or crowds of frustrated travelers. Security and check-in are quick and easy. Your kids will likely be less cranky too. The more chaotic things are at the airport, the more frustrated most kids get.
Private Jets Are Much More Comfortable
With private jet travel, there are no irritating seating assignments. You do not have to worry about sitting in a small, cramped seat without an inch of room to spare. Vacation begins the moment that you step aboard the luxury jet. You do not have to worry about other passengers complaining about your kids. You will have all of the space that you need to stretch out and relax. In addition, many private jets offer catering services in case you or your little ones desire more than a bag of pretzels.
There Are No Restrictions on Luggage or Liquids
Do you like bringing more than a carry-on bag? You can bring as much luggage with you as you want when flying by private jet. Want to bring your full-size beauty product with you? That is fine too. Most of the time, you will work with a travel consultant, who will find options to accommodate all of your needs.
It Is Less Expensive Than You Think

 

This case study compared costs between flying commercially and privately. The study found that flying by private jet actually cost less than commercial flights for a family of four when flying from Los Angeles, CA to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, taking into account luggage and other fees.

 

For your next family vacation, why not consider flying by private jet? This form of travel is a lot more comfortable and luxurious for a family. In addition, it may even cost less than a commercial flight by the time that you add luggage and other fees onto commercial fares.

Private Jets Getting Upgraded

The conveniences from private jet charters has been discussed many times over, but these benefits are great for business travelers. Most charter clients can arrive and be in flight before commercial passengers get through check-in. But, private jets are being upgraded more frequently as time moves on, so the amenities are getting better bringing more comfort to other types of clients. And jet charter companies themselves are growing as well.

Aircraft investments have been seen to be growing, and wider varieties are being purchased and renovated. Tom Trudeau  works with charter companies to upgrade or repair aircraft, and “aircraft he works on range in price from $15,000 to about $3 million” showing that a much broader market is in the works.

Benefits of a Hawaii Private Jet Charter

If you are flying to Hawaii, a private jet charter for your long plane trip might not be the first thing that comes to mind, but it could be the way to go. There are many benefits to flying a private jet charter instead of commercial that people might not be aware of. When booking your next flight to Hawaii, consider the following benefits of a Hawaii private jet charter.

Comfort
Flying to Hawaii from anywhere in the continental U.S., even the West Coast, takes several hours. For such a flight, you can’t beat the comfort of a private jet charter. You will have more room and more amenities than you can get even in first class on a commercial flight.

Convenience
When you are flying to Hawaii, every extra bit of convenience that makes your trip more tolerable counts, and you get those little extra bits of convenience with a private jet charter. When you fly private, you don’t have to show up to the airport extra early, stand in long ticket or security lines, have to worry about how many bags you can bring and how much they will cost or spend tons of time waiting on the plane for passengers to get on and off. Instead, you can save time and your sanity by arriving shortly before your flight and boarding your plane quickly while also disembarking quickly when you arrive at your destination.

Speed
If you are going to Hawaii for vacation or to see family, you probably want to get there as soon as possible. You can’t beat the speed of a private jet charter. In addition to saving time on both the boarding and arrival processes, you also have the advantage of being able to fly straight to where you are going. If you are visiting an island other than Oahu, you can fly straight there rather than having to change planes in Honolulu for another flight.

Though it is more expensive than a commercial flight, the benefits of a private jet charter can make it something you should consider for your next flight to Hawaii.
