The understanding of the operations for private jet charters can require some up front research. There will be a difference between a private jet charter and a discount airline booked months in advance: The costs for the discount airline are substantially less, however, the flight was chosen with a very rigid schedule in mind, the airport and carrier will allow no flexibility in your delays and their delays are your problem. The private jet charter can be scheduled with only a few hours notice and the pilot and crew will be at the hangar ready to board and receive a runway clearance the moment you and your team arrive and the doors close. Should your important meeting run long or finish early the jet will be prepared for the return flight with no delays.
Your comfort in a discount or legacy carrier is based on maximizing numbers of passengers while the charter is often designed to allow you and your business team to get work done in an environment similar to a boardroom. Expect outlets for your computers and comfortable workspaces and should you need rest, seats that truly recline. Meals and refreshments are designed to insure that you arrive at your meeting or at home refreshed and satisfied.
It can be very advantageous to consider working with a charter broker. These services represent your interest and deal with operators to insure that you are provided with the right services for your trip. In addition to competitive rates, the broker can handle the logistics of your trip, review safety standards for the charter, and insure that insurance is provided by the carrier. Your broker can offer you competitive deals such as filling empty legs of other charter flights when flexibility allows, negotiate discounts for repeat charter flights with regular service, and help to insure that the best destination for your arrival is chosen to minimize travel time.
If your team requires regular travel for business and meetings require short notice travel plans with time built in to work and review, you will find that a private jet charter is a cost effective and time-saving option for the growth of your business.
