If you fly frequently for business, colleagues, clients or business partners may strongly recommend that you fly privately. If the reasons for their enthusiasm escapes you, let us tell you what to expect from top-quality private jet charter services. You’ll soon see why so many businesspeople love private jet charter.
Greater Privacy on Private Planes
If you need to have a meeting or a confidential conversation, or work on sensitive documents, a crowded commercial airliner is not the place to do it. However, when you fly private, you know your fellow passengers and there’s a small, discreet crew. You can have virtual or face-to-face meetings in the air with clients and colleagues. There’s also the space, peace and privacy you need to work.
Fly Private for Personal Safety
Flying commercially means crowded airports and long queues. You’re often sharing the plane with hundreds of fellow passengers, attended to by a large crew. This isn’t ideal when Covid-19 is still a concern, and scientists predict that major viruses and ‘super-flus’ are likely to occur more often.
This is why reducing face-to-face contact where possible has become a priority for many, making them opt for safer private flights. You can expect private, quiet lounges and no long check-in queues. There’s no wait in the throng at the luggage carousel: your luggage is taken care of for you when you fly privately. On board, you’ll travel with a small crew and far fewer passengers.
Luxury and Comfort
Of course, private flying also means luxury and comfort, such as:
- private lounges with refreshments and additional services available.
- comfier and more spacious seats on the plane and a better class of catering, including a bespoke menu if you wish
- a small but attentive crew.
Most planes will offer small worktables and a simple lavatory. But a good private jet broker can arrange a jet with all the facilities you need. Sofas, a dining room or conference room, large HD screens, a full galley, a shower, even a bedroom: whatever you require, there’s a private jet that can provide it.
A Wider Choice of Destination and Departure Points
Private travelers have access to around ten times the number of airports served by commercial airlines. This can give you the option to depart from an airport much closer to home and land much nearer your destination. And you can forget airline schedules: when you fly privately, you fly when it’s convenient for you. This drastically reduces the time wasted arriving early for events or waiting for return flights.
Expect More When You Fly Privately
We’ve only discussed a few of the benefits of flying privately here. A good broker should be able to arrange everything from the basics—such as selecting the ideal plane for your needs—to bespoke amenities. These can include anything from specialized catering and in-flight services to hotel bookings, security services and transfers on the ground.
Frequent flyers can also get more convenient and better value private flights with a private jet card. These allow you to prepay for flights at great prices and often guarantee rapid access to the category of plane you require, making private jet charter even more cost-effective. So why not join the trend and fly privately on your next trip?
