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.

The Benefits of Using Private Jet Charters

When considering private jet charters, oftentimes one of the first questions people ask is, “What are the benefits of using private jets versus commercial airlines?” Although commercial airlines will eventually get people where they need to go, private jet charters offer people more luxury and most importantly, more convenience than other means of air travel.

Comfort and Luxury

Think about the interior of a commercial aircraft. These small cabins are often filled with rows and rows of narrow seats where passengers are expected to sit, without much leg room or personal space, for hours until the airplane arrives at its destination. With private jet charters passengers can enjoy spacious cabins, luxurious seating and personalized service from the attendants. This is a definite upgrade from the conditions on commercial airlines.

Private Jet Charters Get You There Quicker

While traveling in luxury is always nice, one of the biggest benefits of using private jet charters is that they offer passengers many more conveniences than commercial aircraft. For example, while commercial airline passengers must wait in long lines for security checks or in various airports during layovers, those who charter private jets can speed through security, experience no layovers, and therefore reach their destinations faster because they are the only ones using the aircraft. This time-saving convenience is especially beneficial for business professionals, wealthy individuals and celebrities who have important meetings and appearances all over the world.

Very Light Jets – A New Class of Private Aircraft

In the last few years, the business aviation industry has seen a number of new technologies emerge. Many of these advancements have resulted in better performing private jets that are more fuel efficient. One of the more popular trends has been the production of Very Light Jets or VLJs. These aircraft typically seat four passengers however many of them offer the same amount of space per passenger as larger aircraft. These light weight private jets help to reduce fuel costs and offer access to airports with shorter runways.

It’s very common for business charter flights to carry only one or two passengers on a trip. Many times it’s only the top executives who make use of private jet charters and they can wind up on a jet with 7 empty seats. Aircraft manufacturers have identified this as an opportunity to produce and offer a product catering to this specific type of consumer. The light jet market is one where customers are often using private jets as a business or time saving tool. For these trips, the aircraft with the lowest charter rate is usually the choice.

Eclipse 500

In 2006, Eclipse Aviation became the first aircraft manufacturer to pioneer a Very Light Jet into the business jet market with introduction of the Eclipse 500. This jet sparked a paradigm shift in the business aviation industry and at just the right time. After the economic crisis of 2008, a lot of companies sought out to cut costs and many disbanded their corporate flight departments altogether. Despite the huge amount of negative press companies such as Citigroup received for their use of private jets, charter flights were still a necessity for much of corporate America. VLJ’s presented a way to reduce expenditure yet still take advantage of the many benefits of using business jet.

Citation Mustang

Cessna’s Citation Mustang became the next Very Light Jet to hit the market with the first deliveries shipping out in 2007. The Mustang’s performance and staring price are similar to the Eclipse 500 however many people favor it due to its more spacious cabin. The Citation Mustang also comes equipped with a lavatory which is one thing that the Eclipse 500 has drawn criticism for lacking.

Phenom 100

The advancements of this aircraft also benefit the environment with lower Co2 emissions and reduced noise levels. It’s no wonder this jet has become the most popular VLJ on the market today.
