As a business traveler, you have a lot on your plate. Every minute of your trip is planned, from conference sessions to dinner meetings. One way to reduce the stress of corporate travel is opting for private charter flights, rather than relying on commercial airlines.
There are multiple ways to gain access to private flights. Of course, you can purchase a private jet, or become a co-owner of one. This is a costly option that does not make sense for most businesses. It’s more likely you will buy hours of flight time, purchase a membership or charter individual flights. Your travel agent can help you decide which option is right for your business.
Private charters give you access to more destinations than a seat in business class on a commercial airline. You can also fly from the airport of your choice. You eliminate the time it takes to drive to and from the closest major airport. Instead, you depart and arrive at the most convenient airport. Depending on the distance between your current and desired locations, you may be able to completely eliminate the need for layovers by choosing a private charter. Or, if an extra stop would make your trip more effective, you can add a city to your flight plan.
You won’t need to go through security at the airport alongside hundreds of other passengers, saving additional time. Depending on your flight operator, you will likely only need to arrive a few minutes before your scheduled departure time. When your trip to the airport is delayed due to traffic or last-minute meetings, simply ask your flight to wait.
Once you’re in the air, you’ll experience high-quality amenities, helping you arrive at your destination ready to do business. Meals, beds and showers are just some of the amenities available on private aircrafts. When you share a flight with coworkers, business partners or clients, you have a confidential space to discuss business matters. It can also be a quiet space to prepare for a business trip or debrief afterward.
