Why Private Jet Charters Are Here To Stay

Posted by on 04/05/2015

Gone are the days when chartered flights were a preserve for the rich. Things have changed and now chartered flights are pretty much for everyone. They are of course, a bit costly compared to regular commercial flights. But like your flight agent will tell you, there are chartered flight plans and packages that can come in handy when you need them. But before then, it is important to first find out what makes these flights special. Why do people go for them even when some private jet charter tickets are so expensive? Read on to find out.

You are in charge

This does not mean that you are the pilot or the co-pilot.  It’s all about the kind of control you have as far as your flight time is concerned.  The jet is fully under your charge. You get to decide when the flight takes off. You therefore don’t have to worry about missing flights. You may however have to worry about delayed flights that may occur as a result of extreme weather conditions. An added perk is the fact that once inside the jet, you can sit or recline wherever you like. There are no restrictions at all. 

Convenience

Don’t you just hate it when you touch down in a busy international airport full of passengers from all over the world? You can always use the VIP lounge if you can afford it, but why go that far when you can avoid such setbacks in the first place? Private charter flights make it possible for you to choose where you wish to land. You can choose or rather select from more than 5,000 national and international airports for arrivals as well as departures. Such kind of convenience is unheard of in commercial flights.

Customization

This is where luxury comes in. You don’t just go for any plane, but one that fits your travel needs. But that is not everything. You are allowed to choose what to eat, who will serve you, what kind of luggage you wish to carry, which  pilot you are comfortable with and of course, whether or not to travel with your pet. It is this kind of convenience that often appeals to celebrities and public figures who prefer travelling unnoticed. 

Safety

No traveler, in his or her sane mind can take the risk of travelling in a plane known for flight mishaps. Everyone simply wants to travel with the peace of mind that they will reach wherever they are going safe and sound.  Private air charter companies are always more than willing to go an extra mile to prove to their potential customers ho safe their flights are. It gets better with the fact that most if not all, private air charter companies boast of high ratings as far as safety is concerned. 

Personal touch

Imagine travelling in a chartered flight where everyone knows you by name. Better yet, you are free to make orders at the touch of a button. The icing on the cake is the fact that you are free to choose how many crew members you want to travel with. Travelling in such kind of an environment is extremely ideal for business people or in instances where one wants to hold meeting aboard. You won’t have to worry about who listens to what you discuss as you already know everyone on board. 

Predictability

Regular flights have the uncanny habit of being unpredictable when it comes to flight prices. One minute the tickets are affordable, the next they are way beyond affordable rates. This mostly happens during peak seasons such as summer when everyone wants to travel. Such setbacks are unheard of when it comes to private charter flights. You always know what the airline will charge you from the word go. The prices don’t change at all. They only do so occasionally and you get notified on time about the airlines intention to increase ticket prices.

No connecting flights

You simply fly from point A to point B in the same plane. That means you don’t have to worry if the second or third connecting flight will give you a memorable customer experience.  In the end, you get to enjoy your flight and save time, which needless to say, is an important factor in any business.

Best entertainment

Everything in a private air charter is always designed with luxury in mind. It therefore does not come as a surprise that private charter planes boast of a wide range of entertainment extras. From high tech music systems and 3D movies to fun board and video games, you have everything with you up in the air. Other perks include a wide range of food and drinks to choose from as well as snacks, instant hot showers and steam baths. Note that different private charter airlines offer different entertainment features and experiences. Your best bet is therefore to find a company that can offer the kind of entertainment you enjoy.
