Private Jets 101

If you’re considering chartering a Private Jet for the first time, here are a few things to remember, as well as some good tips to make the process as smooth as possible.

Luggage / Baggage
Make sure you have a good idea about how many passengers you will be traveling with, and how much baggage they will have. It is important to mention whether or not you intend on bringing any pets. Depending on your needs, you may want to do a little research on the type of jet you want to charter. Faster jets may get you to your destination quicker, however the trade off may be reduced cargo space. Make sure to consult with one of our professionals. Our consultative approach will ensure that you choose the right charter for your needs.

Scheduling
When using a large commercial airport, it’s always smart to consider whether your departure and arrival time will coincide with any major holidays or events. The great thing about chartering your own jet is that you do not have to show up hours early for your flight. There are many smaller, regional airports used only for private flights. Unlike commercial travel, private jet charters allow you to park and directly board your flight, bypassing security checkpoints and lines. Just make sure you have a photo id or passport, and you know your aircraft’s tail number. You can pull right up to the gate and hop on.

Flying International
Keep in mind that flying international may result in fluctuating costs. This is a result of international taxes, higher fuel prices, and low supply in certain areas. For example if you travel from a region where there are fewer aircraft available, less supply could mean higher prices. Unlike some competitors, Luxury Aircraft Solutions will disclose this information at the time of booking to ensure no unpleasant surprises, and a comfortable trip with no complications.
