Charter Aircraft Benefits
The benefits of flying on a Private Charter Aircraft are many, while there are no true disadvantages. The benefits include increased safety, greater convenience, better comfort, saving time, avoid airport hassles, control passengers around you, increased privacy, catering of preferred foods, increased productivity and the ability to take along luggage, small cargo and pets.
The higher price as compared to 1st. Class tickets quickly decreases and disappears as more people fly on the same Flight.
Let's dig into the details:
Boarding a Charter Jet Aircraft is only the beginning of a lot of extra conveniences of a private plane and is due to the smaller size and fewer passengers at private airports. Once on board conveniences never cease, starting with the selection of your seat, easy access to the lavatory, having full control of entertainment options, not being bothered by unwanted obtrusive conversations, endless chatter of nearby passengers or crying babies, etc. Private Planes allow you to conduct meetings in full privacy & confidence, since you control who is on board.
Increased Safety both at airports and in-Flight.
Since Charter Aircraft use Private Airports the access to the airport and boarding procedures are widely different. Private Airports have far fewer passengers transiting through, the staff frequently knows most of the passengers already and therefore offer less rigorous, more customized security procedures. At many Private Airports passengers drive right up to the airplane, are checked by the pilot if they are unfamiliar to the crew and board in minutes. Since all the passengers fly at the discretion of the person in charge of the Aircraft or owner the private plane, one is never at a risk of someone causing problems on board. Safety on the Aircraft also enables you to direct the flight to a different airport or change the routing if weather or ground conditions change unexpectedly.
Comfort is enhanced from the time you take the few steps from your vehicle to the steps leading up to your private plane cabin. Your seat offers endless comfort by its size and the space around it, the ability to sit, recline or use a large surface table and be able to listen to music, watch video, make phone calls, use the Web, etc. Access to the lavatory is unlimited and you don't have to wait in line to use it. Your pets can accompany you on-board, your luggage of any reasonable size with no weight limitations is loaded and unloaded in minutes and safely tucked near you, never to be lost or misdirected to another destination.
Charter Aircraft save time for the traveler both en-route, to and from airport ground transportation, as well as personal time outside of working hours. Charter Aircrafts always fly the most direct route to save Flight time and also without having to incur delays resulting from having to change flights, in addition to the wait time involved at airports doing so. Private Charter flyers are able to visit many more locations in 1 day than would be possible using commercial flights and can easily land and takeoff from the larger number of private airports that are always closer to the desirable departure or destination locations, thus once again saving ground transportation delays. With such targeted private flights, executives can visit multiple locations with minimal time wasted, arrive refreshed for business and relaxed for family time after the flight.
Control Tight Schedules
Executives traveling on Charter Aircraft are best equipped to control their tight schedules and are unlikely to incur delays or surprises, as they will never experience Flight cancellations, late arrivals, lost or misdirected luggage or ground transportation delays.
No Lost or Delayed Baggage
Charter flyers frequently need to transport critical equipment or supplies needed at the time of arrival for presentations, testing, repairs or other activities to be performed at the destination. On Charter Aircraft you watch your baggage loaded and unloaded on your Flight and can be sure it's never lost, mis-routed or damaged enabling you to be ready for your intended activities.
Potential Cost Advantages
It is well known that a Charter Jet cost for 1 person will always be higher than a 1st. Class Ticket. However when a group is traveling, a Charter Jet can be equivalent or sometime even lower than 1st. Class Air Fare, since the cost of a Charter Jet is for the entire Aircraft, not just a seat. If a convenient Empty Leg Flight is available, the cost usually is even lower than Commercial 1st. Class tickets with all the added benefits and conveniences of the Charter Aircraft.
