8 Things You Didn’t Know About Flying Private

by Amber

You may think that flying private is only for the rich and famous, but the truth is that flying private can be quite affordable, especially with a Jet Membership. In fact, there are a number of little-known facts about flying private that can help you save money and make the most of your experience. Here are just a few things to keep in mind the next time you’re considering flying private.

You’ll avoid the crowds

Those who have flown commercial know how crowded and chaotic the airport can be. However, when you fly private, you’ll avoid all of the crowds and chaos. This is because you’ll have your own dedicated terminal and lounge at the airport. Some airports even allow you to drive right up to the airplane on the tarmac!

The flights are shorter

One of the best things about flying private is that the flights are typically shorter. This is because private jets can take off and land at smaller airports that are closer to your destination. As a result, you won’t have to waste any time sitting on the tarmac at a large airport waiting for your flight to take off. Additionally, private planes are often able to fly at faster speeds and different altitudes than commercial airplanes, which can cut down on your total travel time.

You can customize your dining experience

If you fly first class, you can usually choose your meal from a few pre-selected options. But when you fly private, you can completely customize your dining experience. Our in-flight catering ensures that your dining experience is completely tailored to your preferences, which is especially beneficial for those with food allergies.

You’ll get much better service

When you fly private, you’ll receive VIP treatment from start to finish. You’re not just paying for the convenience and luxury—you’re also paying for better service. After all, the flight crew on a private plane is completely dedicated to you and your travel party. And once you land at your destination, you’ll be able to avoid all of the hassles associated with commercial travel, such as lost luggage or long security lines. 

You don’t have to be wealthy to fly private

Although flying private may seem like an extravagance that only the ultra-wealthy can afford, the truth is that it’s not as expensive as you might think. While it’s true that flying private can be more expensive than flying commercial, it doesn’t have to break the bank. There are a number of ways to fly private without spending a fortune, such as chartering a small plane for a short flight, splitting the cost with friends or family, or enrolling in our Jet Membership program.

You’ll have all the privacy you need when you charter a flight

Another benefit of flying private is that you’ll have all the privacy you want. When you fly commercial, you’re crammed into a small space with hundreds of other people. Even first class seats don’t offer complete privacy throughout the entire flight. When you fly private, you’ll have your own space where you can relax and enjoy the flight.

You can bring your pets on private jets

If you’ve ever had to leave your furry friend behind when traveling or have them fly in the cargo section of the plane, you know how heartbreaking it can be, especially since flying in the cargo section can cause a significant amount of anxiety in animals (and not to mention, it can be downright dangerous). But when you fly private, your pets can come along for the ride! That’s just one of the many perks of flying private that many people are surprised to learn when chartering a flight; you never have to part with your beloved animal companion again. In fact, they can fly right with you in the main cabin and without being constrained to a tight space, such as a small pet carrier. 

Flying private can be more environmentally friendly than commercial flights

Did you know that in some cases, certain private aircraft actually produce less carbon emissions per passenger mile than commercial airlines? That’s because several models, particularly smaller private planes, are operated more efficiently and burn less fuel per passenger than their larger counterparts. So, if you’re looking for a way to travel that’s both luxurious and eco-friendly, look no further than flying private!
