Flying on a private jet is often associated with luxury, comfort, and exclusivity. With no lines, no crowds, and no fuss, it’s no wonder that more people are choosing to fly private. However, despite its many benefits, there are still some little-known mistakes people make when flying private. Avoid these mistakes when chartering a private flight to ensure you’re getting the most out of your private aviation experience.
Mistake 1: Not considering the airport location
One of the most common mistakes people make when flying private is not considering the airport location. While private jets can fly to thousands of airports across the United States, not all airports are created equal. Some airports may be more convenient for your destination, while others may be farther away. For example, if you’re flying to a popular tourist destination, you may find that the closest airport is not ideal for private planes. Instead, you may better off flying into a smaller airport located nearby. By doing your research and considering the airport location, you can save time and money on ground transportation and make the most of your private flight experience. We are also happy to help you determine the closest airports from your departure point and destination.
Mistake 2: Not researching the charter provider
Not all private jet charter providers are created equal. Some may have better safety records, more experienced pilots, or better customer service. Before chartering a flight, it’s important to research the charter provider to ensure that they meet your standards. By chartering your private flight with Luxury Aircraft Solutions, you can feel confident that you’re booking a flight with a reputable and trustworthy charter provider.
Mistake 3: Not choosing the right aircraft
Choosing the right aircraft is essential for a comfortable and optimal flight experience. Private jets come in different sizes, from small turboprops to large jets. It’s essential to choose the right aircraft based on the number of passengers, luggage, and distance of your trip. Keep in mind, also, that smaller aircraft do have access to more airports.
Mistake 4: Not communicating your needs and preferences
Private jet charters are all about customization and personalization. However, some people make the mistake of not communicating their needs and preferences to the charter provider. By letting the charter provider know your preferences, you can tailor your flight experience to your liking. For example, if you have specific dietary requirements, you can let the charter provider know in advance so that they can cater to your needs. If you prefer certain types of music or entertainment, you can also request these in advance. By communicating your needs and preferences, you can ensure a more enjoyable and personalized flight experience.
At Luxury Aircraft Solutions, we strive to make your private aviation experience the best it can possibly be.
Mistake 5: Last-minute bookings
It’s best to charter your flight as soon as possible to ensure availability and the best pricing. By booking early, you can also have more options in terms of aircraft and travel times, as well as have ample time to plan for any additional services or requests. Waiting until the last minute can lead to higher prices and less availability, so make sure to plan ahead and book your private flight in advance. With that being said, we understand that life can be unpredictable, and we do our best to accommodate any last-minute booking requests. In fact, if you’re flexible with your travel plans (which can also include traveling last-minute), you may have the opportunity to take advantage of an empty leg flight.
Mistake 6: Not considering jet membership programs
Many private jet charter providers offer membership programs that can provide a range of benefits and perks. These programs can provide access to exclusive rates, guaranteed availability, and a dedicated account manager for personalized service. By considering jet membership programs, you can enjoy the benefits of private aviation while also saving time and money. You can customize your flight experience and enjoy peace of mind knowing that your travel needs are taken care of.
Also, it is important to note that not all jet membership programs are created equally. In fact, many charter brokers use the terms “jet membership” interchangeably with restrictive programs, such as jet cards. Our JetMembership.com program offers a unique pricing model for all members; as a member of our program, you receive access to wholesale rates on all private flights.
