How to Charter a Private Flight

How to charter a private flight

If you are looking to get away for a weekend or have a business trip coming up, private jet charters are the best way to get where you want to go. With many types of charter aircraft available, it’s easy to find one that is perfect for any trip you’ve got planned.

Chartering a private jet comes with many advantages that regular commercial flights just can’t offer. These include being able to travel where you want, when you want with no delays or security hassles. You can also fly directly into small or remote airports that are not served by commercial carriers.

You may have seen the rich and famous flying around in their private jets, but what about chartering one for your next trip? The process is actually simpler than you may think, and can easily be done by following these steps:

Find a reputable private aviation company

If you are ready to take the first step of chartering one of these luxury jets, you’ll want to research reputable private aviation companies and compare your options. When contacting different companies, it is important that you feel comfortable with them and that they will help you find the perfect jet. They need to be courteous and extremely knowledgeable about their business in order to ensure that your experience with them is fantastic from beginning to end.

Luxury Aircraft Solutions has been chartering private flights for clients for over 12 years, and we have an extensive fleet of aircraft for our clients to choose from, as well as flexible schedule availability.

When you are ready, we will make the necessary arrangements to get your trip started.

Steps to chartering a private flight

Determine your travel needs

When looking for an airplane to charter, you will need to know how many passengers are traveling, which airports you prefer to depart from and land at, the size of your luggage, and your timeframe. Before finalizing your booking, it is important that you know these exact specifications so you can secure the itinerary that best suits your needs. If you’re unsure of what airports will best suit your travel needs, or what size airplane you’ll need for your group, we are always happy to help! In fact, our expertise, knowledge, and extensive experience in the industry enables us to help travelers select the best planes and airports for their flights.

Become familiar with the pricing

The cost of chartering a private plane varies depending on a number of factors. These include the size of the plane, the type, and how far you are traveling. Typically, charter flight pricing is based on an hourly rate. The further you’ll be traveling and the bigger the jet you’ll be chartering, the more a chartered flight will cost. On the other hand, a very small plane that is being chartered for a short distance will only be a fraction of that cost. If you plan on flying often and looking for ways to cut down on costs, there are also different pricing options to explore. Our exclusive Jet Membership program, for example, gives customers the opportunity to charter flights at wholesale rates. In exchange for a flat fee, members receive fully transparent, no-commission pricing for all of their private flights.

Becoming familiar with the pricing structure is important when planning your chartered flight. This way, you’ll know upfront what’s feasible, or what changes you may need to make in order to make a specific trip more practical. For example, splitting the cost with a group can be one option, or downsizing the size of the plane you want to charter can also help bring down the total cost.
