Spring time is right around the corner as the weather begins to heat up and days lengthen so does the demand of private jet charter. With popular Spring events like March Madness, Easter, Passover and The Kentucky Derby, private jets will be flying all over the country.
Private Charter Travel & March Madness
Last year travel to Houston in the Spring was up an estimated 15% due to the NCAA Final Four with popular teams like North Carolina, Syracuse, Villanova and Oklahoma drawing in large crowds to fill up the 70,000+ fans into NRG Stadium.
2017 will sure bring the same fanfare as Phoenix’s University of Phoenix Stadium will be host to the Final Four. Similar to Super Bowl XLIX in 2015, Phoenix Airport Int’l(PHX) will be the most popular airport, with Deer Valley (DCT) being a close alternative airport option.
Popular Easter & Passover Destinations
Palm Beach Airport (PBI) and Miami/Opa Locka Airport (OPF) are two of the east coast’s most frequently used airports to celebrate Easter and Passover. With the kid’s out of school for Spring Break and time to escape the cold temperatures these east coast beachfront cities are the perfect escape for sun and relaxation.
The Kentucky Derby – An American Tradition
This will be the 142nd running of the Kentucky Derby. Saturday May 6th the horses, hats, and age old traditions will make their return to Kentucky for another weekend of highly anticipated race excitement. The Derby is the longest running continuously contested sports events in history. They are also the only horse races to be held at their original location since their conception.
On average, the race attracts more than 100,000 spectators and race enthusiasts annually. Some of the most anticipated and important events at the derby are not the races themselves, but rather the traditions. Grab yourself a mint julip, a derby hat and a fancy new outfit for the annual running at Churchill Downs.
You can be sure that flying private into Louisville International Airport (SDF) is going to be a fashionable event in itself!
Looking at social media selfies and reality TV, it’s apparent that the youngest generation enjoys more luxurious travel accommodations than ever before. Jet-setting business people have always chartered private jets to shorten the distance between clients and skip the hassle of commercial air travel. However, as these worldly professionals become parents, more and more of them are chartering jets especially for their kids.
Private jets serve different purposes for families throughout the school year. Charter flights are being utilized for everything from visitation of potential schools to transportation of students at the beginning and end of each semester. Many parents who are too busy to accompany their children find comfort in knowing that students will arrive on time, with all their belongings and will not be subjected to the stresses associated with flying commercial. Another added benefit of using private jets for viewing college choices is that a family has the ability to see several campuses in a weekend or even a day.
Millions of teenagers just graduated from high school and will be college-bound soon; for the lucky ones, cross-country and intercontinental trips are worth the splurge to celebrate their big accomplishment. This is the last time they’ll have so few responsibilities, and some teens get to revel in it, enjoying a jet card that can show them more of the big world they’re about to enter for good. While some incoming seniors will get a head start on their college tours, others can enjoy laid-back and luxurious journeys aboard a jet charter this summer.
Families traditionally book private planes during this season for a more common reason: summer vacation. Those with European sensibilities might even extend that vacation into a whole gap year for their child, but the family jet card comes with a lot of responsibility and warrants a lot of gratitude. As the economy continues to improve, more and more parents are taking advantage of the convenience and comfort of private flights. They can even pair the plane tickets with a lesson in privilege and an emphasis on education, thanks to college-oriented trips and graduation gifts.
