Private Jet Charters to 2013 MLB All Star Game

This year’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game takes place on July 16, 2013 in New York City at Citi Field, home to the New York Mets. This is the first time the Mets have hosted the Midsummer Classic since 1964.

If you are planning to attend the 2013 MLB All-Star Game, there is no better way to arrive in style than by chartering a private jet. With the game swiftly approaching, commercial flights to New York City often become increasingly limited or must be purchased at incredibly high summer travel rates. If you have never considered a private jet rental, now might be the time to rethink the possibilities. Jet charters are surprisingly more affordable and convenient than previously realized.

Read on to learn how booking a private flight to the 2013 MLB All-Star Games can benefit you.

Time Savings; Privacy; Perks, Amenities and Cost Effectiveness

One of the best things about chartering a private jet is the amount of time you will save. Commercial flights are well known for their long lines, herding people into boarding, extensive security line waits, long baggage check-ins, flight delays, layovers and missed connections.

Flying on a chartered jet allows for a more relaxed and comfortable private flight experience without the hassle. Unlike commercial flights, private jets allow for more flexibility in scheduling as well as freedom from long lines or arriving at an airport hours before your flight.

It can be really exasperating to board an overcrowded plane; typical scenarios include enduring the sounds of crying children, complaining passengers, no leg room and long waits in a lavatory line. Even if you fly first class, this does not mean you are protected from contamination by germs and viruses brought on board by others, you still breathe the same air. Flying on a private jet means lots of leg room, private restroom and getting to fly with people you invited.

Your comfort is a high priority on a private jet charter. Feel free to stretch out and take a nap on your jet, as opposed to commercial flights featuring too-close tight seating arrangements.

Forget about assigned seating near smelly plane toilets, on a private rental, you get to choose where you want to sit. No more flight movie disappointments, on a private jet rental you get to choose the films you want to watch.

Request your favorite food and drinks to be served on board, no more limited in-flight food choices. You always have a place to store your carry-on luggage on a private flight, no more frantic searching for an empty overhead bin to store your carry-on items.

Jet charters can be very cost effective, especially for large groups attending the MLB Games. Most jet charters rent by the hour and are all-inclusive: fuel, crew expenses, airport fees, taxes and ordinary expenditures.

A way to save money on a private jet rental to NY is to consider purchasing an empty leg charter, this happens when a plane is chartered one way leaving the return flight empty. These flights are often offered at discounts to prospective travelers with flexibility on departure times.

Safety Considerations

Feel safe and secure when flying on a private jet charter to the MLB All Star Game. Know that your aircraft is firmly regulated by the FAA with all private pilots and crew bearing proper credentials and experience. Secondly, you are flying with people you are familiar with not strangers who could potentially be unruly or pose a risk to safety.
