How to charter a private jet

A charter jet provides the advantages of having made to order scheduling and accommodations for on-board business meetings. You'll never waste another day on some overcrowded commercial flight again!

Chartering a private jet may seem like a service for only the rich and famous. However, when you compare chartering a jet with the costs of owning and maintaining a company jet, there are several clear advantages. When you as a business manager decide to buy a jet, remember that not only will you be paying for the physical cost of the jet, but also for maintenance, insurance, permits, licenses, staff, fuel, etc.

The price of owning your own jet is high. Chartering a jet on the other hand is much more affordable because in essence you are splitting all those costs among other charter jet flight consumers. You are also given a lot more flexibility as far as flight plans go. When you own a jet, that jet can only be in one place at one time and is limited to where it can go in a single day. Many charter jet services have dozens and sometimes hundreds of different flight options, making simultaneous flights possible.
