Business jet charter made easy – preparation for and typical course of a charter flight

If you have appointments in faraway places or want to spend your vacation there, the fastest and most comfortable way to travel is by plane. Scheduled flights are an option, but they come with some disadvantages. A private jet gets these out of the way. If you are interested in private jet charter, we are your go-to company.

In the following, we will inform you about the advantages of a private jet charter. In addition, you will learn which steps are necessary to book a private jet. Finally, we will introduce you to our services in the field of private jet charter.

Booking a business jet charter is just as easy as booking any other means of transportation. However, the charter provider has to make some preparations. Therefore, certain information are necessary in order to customize the flight according to your wishes.

What are the advantages of a private jet charter over a scheduled flight?

Advantages of private jet charter flights over scheduled flights. Probably the most important one is flexibility. If you are traveling on a scheduled flight, you have to follow the flight schedule. It is not uncommon that one has to arrive the day before the meeting because there is no other way. Also, sometimes one has to keep the appointment short in order to be back at the airport on time.

A private jet can be rented in such a way that the flight times are exactly aligned with your schedule. You arrive when you want, and thus do not lose valuable time. Moreover, the departure can be flexibly arranged in case the meeting unexpectedly gets longer.

A private jet charter also saves you the hassle of waiting at the airport. Also, you do not have to check your luggage and wait for it at the destination. Moreover, you design the itinerary the way you want. You won’t need to change planes, because you will fly directly from your starting point to your destination.

Since private jets are much smaller than airliners, they can land at smaller airports. This also has a positive effect on planning the itinerary.

A private jet brings another benefit: convenience. If there are other passengers on board besides you, you have invited them yourself. In addition, the catering will ensure that you are catered to your taste. And you don’t have to worry about legroom in a private jet either. Furthermore, it is also an advantage to travel with a private jet especially during pandemic time.


How does a private jet charter work?

In this blog post, we will show you that – in addition – booking a business jet is just as easy as booking a scheduled flight.

In order to prepare the flight as best as possible, the charter provider needs the following information:

  1. place of departure and destination, or destinations, if you want to travel to several places

  2. number of passengers

  3. travel date, or if you do not know the exact date, the probable date or the duration of the trip

  4. information about stopovers: if stopovers to refuel are acceptable, you can also book private jets with a shorter range whose prices are often smaller.

In addition to the information about the flight, you should also remark any additional wishes, for example regarding onward (car, limousine, train or helicopter) transport or special requests in terms of the catering.

If the actual destination is a bit further away from the destination airport, the charter provider will organize the onward transportation for you by helicopter, limousine or by cab or train.

If there are any religious, medical or other restrictions regarding the food, you should also inform the provider about them during the booking process.

Types of jets and airports

If you intend to book a private jet request certain information beforehand.

Ask the charter provider for recommended jet types according to your specifications. This makes it easier for you to find out if the jet really suits your travel needs. Furthermore not only just one private jet should be offered but a selection of possible alternatives.

Also request information about the desired airport. For example, it is important to know if there are restrictions in case of bad weather. Let the provider explain the specifications to you – this way you will also learn if the communication works well.

If you are looking for a short-term charter flight, you may ask for an Empty Leg Flight. Empty Leg Flights are flights without passengers. Those can be booked at extremely attractive conditions. However, keep in mind that Empty Leg Flights only make sense for one-way trips and that they are only available at short notice.

The booking process

The booking of a business jet charter is just as easy as – if not even easier than – booking a scheduled flight. You get some offers, give your information to the charter provider, and that’s it.

If in future you book a charter flight with the same provider, the last step is omitted. You only tell them where you want to fly and this concludes the whole booking process.

Business jet charter vs. travelling via airline

If you intend to book a private jet or charter a flight, a bit more preparation is necessary compared to a scheduled flight. This is mostly owed to the fact that a private jet offers a lot more amenities and that a charter provider meticulously implements the requests of the passengers.

Once the basic questions, for example special catering requests or preferring a certain type of jet, are dealt with, booking a business charter jet is just as easy as booking an airline flight.

One thing that cannot be compared to a scheduled flight is the excellent service. If for instance changes occur after the booking, the charter provider will try to implement your wishes to the best extent possible. For example, postponing a flight for a few hours is – in contrast to airliners – not a problem at all.
