Private Jet Charter FAQ
Never traveled by private jet before ?
Here are some FAQs to help you with a decision before you submit your request for a quote for a private airplane.
1. Are private jets more expensive than first-class commercial airline tickets ?
As a general rule, yes. So, if you are wondering whether booking a private jet is worthwhile and you have already determined that your budget is beyond a first class ticket, then please feel free to submit your request.
2. I have several people in my party, and by splitting the cost, is it cheaper to charter a flight than a first-class ticket ?
Probably not. If you have more people in your party, then you will need to get a larger private plane. We give estimates of passenger capacity in our Aircraft section, and generally, the larger the plane, the more expensive the quote. So, if it is within the budget of each person in your party to have a first-class ticket, please feel free to submit your request.
3. Can I get a ride on someone else's jet going from my town to the location I want ?
No, not usually. If you have chartered a flight yourself, you probably would not want to pickup strangers to fly on your jet. We have been requested to develop a 'ride-share program' for private jet flights and are considering it. Please check back later.
4. What about these empty legs, backhauls and deadheads where I can get a ticket for a reduced pricing ?
It is possible. We always try to construct empty legs with our quote to get you the cheapest price. However, it just depends on what private flights are available on the day that you wish to travel. But even with the beneficial pricing from an empty leg, it will still cost more than a first-class commercial airline ticket.
Private Aviation is worth it every penny. Try it for yourself.
