Airplane charter jet rental

When I talk to people about flying on private aircraft, I often find myself answering the same questions: “What are the advantages of flying on a private plane versus flying on a commercial airline?” and “Isn’t flying private considered a luxury?”

There are many advantages to private jet travel. And, while it’s true that private jet accommodations can be luxurious, the real advantages of flying on a private plane are convenience and efficiency. For example, passengers don’t have to fly out of busy hub airports unless they want to. If they live or work near a smaller general aviation airport, they can depart from there and avoid traffic typically found at large commercial airports.

Even if passengers choose to leave from a busy hub airport, they depart from a small facility called a Fixed Base of Operation, or FBO. This cuts out all of the chaos of a commercial terminal. Before 9-11, security was much more relaxed and passengers could drive their own cars onto the tarmac. Today, they must park in an adjoining lot and take provided shuttle to the aircraft. It’s not a bad deal – parking lots for private flyers are usually free and secure 24/7. And, transport drivers are available to load passengers’ bags onto the plane for them. Passengers are always with their belongings, so there’s no reason to worry that luggage will be lost, damaged, or sent to the wrong city.
