Reasons to Charter A Private Jet in 2015

Compared to commercial airlines, private jet is the best way to travel. With private jet charter, you don’t need to be at the airport 2 hours earlier before your flight, have a long waiting process and queuing. All you are required to do is avail yourself at the runway about 30 minutes before your flight, you will be welcomed with a smile, get personal attention, your bags will be loaded and you get straight onto the aircraft. Other than that, there are other reasons why you should consider hiring a private jet instead of using commercial airlines.

Private Jet Charter

Time

As the saying goes, “time is money” and whether you are on vacation, you have a business meeting or you have a deadline you need to meet, you will always want more of that time. When you choose to travel using a private jet, you are assured that you will have time on your side. The aircraft can never depart without you and it will leave when you are ready to go to your destination.

Safety

Both commercial and private aircraft are subject to FAA regulations, but they are not equally safe. Private jet charter operators are audited by different third parties and rated according to various factors which include aircraft upkeep and maintenance, history of incidents, crew certification and experience. Wyvern and ARG/US are two highly ranked and recognized third party auditing agencies for private jet operators. When you fly on aircraft rated by these companies you can be sure that you are in good hands.

Privacy

Although this doesn’t apply more to everyday business people but public figures and celebrities, private jets will offer you the ability to travel without being noticed. You also don’t need to worry about other passengers with crying children or listening to music too loud.

Pets

If you have a pet that you want to travel with using commercial airlines, it is treated as luggage. Some of the airlines will even transport your pet in the storage compartment which can get extremely cold at high altitudes. Contrary to when you charter a private jet since as long you get prior approval, your beloved pet can comfortably travel in the cabin with you. Although you may be asked for cleaning or deposit fee for your pet, it is without any doubt worth it.

The above are some of the advantages hiring a private jet rather than using the commercial airlines. To learn more about traveling by private jet charter or for pricing; call or email Jet Partners today.

Traveling With Pets Makes Every Flight Better

Traveling with pets on commercial airlines can be challenging these days.  More and more pet owners are opting to use charter flights for traveling with their pets.  Most private aircraft allow animals on board in the cabin.  Not only do pet owners get to enjoy the company of their furry friends but they can also be assured that their pets are properly cared for, fed and not stressed out.

Each individual country and commercial airline has specific rules on where and how pets can accompany passengers on flights.  It is often a requirement for dogs, cats and other animals to be placed below the aircraft in the cargo or baggage area where they are essentially treated like luggage.  This can create a number of different problems and even bring harm to the animals.

As many pet owners know, it is common for dogs stress levels to increase during unfamiliar situations.  Some animals are prescribed medicine by veterinarians but medication for anxiety is usually administered at the first signs of stress and dosages are increased based on the observed behavior of the animal.  In addition, the presence of a pet’s owner is sometimes the best way to comfort dogs when they are in distress.  When a dog is forced to travel in the cargo area, owners are not able to observe and react accordingly to their behavior.

Discussing The Nice Ride

 

The conditions in the cargo area of an aircraft can be another cause of injury and fatality of pets traveling via commercial airlines.  The reason this compartment of an aircraft is called the “cargo area” is because that is exactly what it is meant to carry, cargo.  Temperatures can reach extreme highs and lows and in many cases there is nothing keeping animal carrying cases in place.  Poor ventilation, low oxygen levels and turbulence are also to blame for such unfortunate incidents.

The fact is, even commercial airlines that claim to be “pet friendly” are not immune to these unfortunate occurrences.  Commercial airlines deal with huge volumes of people, pets, luggage, cargo, mail and are often running on a tight schedule.  Oversight is not uncommon and the airline employees simply do not have the resources to properly care for your pets.
