When you need a convenient and luxurious way to travel long distances, a private jet charter can be the perfect solution for your needs. As with any other type of transportation service, it is important to be thorough when you are making your plans for this type of travel.
1. Utilize Greater Flexibility
Most commercial airline services will be extremely limited in the airports that they can use. This is largely a result of the fact that the larger commercial aircraft will need much more space for landing and taking off. Private charter jets are usually much smaller, and this can allow them to use a wider range of airports. This can be an excellent choice for those that are needing to be able to land in isolated areas that may not have a large airport nearby. The particular airports that a charter service can utilize will vary, and you will need to communicate about your destination and landing requests so that they can determine whether there is an accessible airport in the vicinity that the plane can utilize.
2. Understand the Refreshment and Beverage Policies
Being on an airplane for several hours or longer can give you a chance to relax; quality refreshments can be an important amenity. While many charter jet services will provide some basics, such as water or chips, you may want something different. Check with the charter service to determine whether snacks will be provided, and which types of snacks and drinks you can expect. If you are wanting alcohol during the flight, this can be another factor that you will want to check. There are special licensing requirements to be able to serve alcohol and not all fo these providers may have this license. However, you may be free to bring your own beverages.
3. Consider Where Your Vehicle Will Be Parked During Your Flight
When flying out of a large commercial airport, parking will usually be provided. However, the smaller airports that serve private jets may be far more limited on parking space or it may be inconvenient to reach. Some charter jet services can arrange for your transportation to the airport so that you will not have to worry about your car. However, if you are traveling with a large group that will arrive separately, you could choose a service that has either on-site parking or nearby secure parking.
These are three things to consider before you book your next private jet charter. Start comparing your options now so your next trip will be effortless and enjoyable.
