Aircraft charters bring convenience and privacy to air travel. To charter a plane means a person books a flight for themselves and as many passengers as they wish to bring along to a particular destination. The client names the departure time and location, and the charter plane is waiting for them. Amenities are available on board, such as snacks, food and drinks upon request.
The charter plane is paid for by the person who books the flight. Charged by the hour, the amount of time it takes to travel to your destination by charter aircraft is what drives the basic price of the excursion, although other fees apply. The farther away the city is, the more the trip will cost. The size and speed of the charter plane are also a consideration. Smaller planes that fly slower and carry fewer passengers cost less. When quickness matters, choose the right type of aircraft to meet any deadlines. Getting there in a hurry is no problem when one can charter a private jet.
Privacy is of the utmost importance for clients with charter service. Avoiding large airports with crowds can be a logistical dilemma. For those with personal safety issues, like recognizability in public places for famous faces, a charter flight from a smaller, more secure airport is manageable. No autographs or harassing photos taken. Most plane charters are ready to fly on very short notice.
Inconvenience is also a common problem with flying commercial airlines. They set the pace - slow. Charter flights leave at the right time, whatever that may be. Most airports now require their passengers to be a few hours early to allow time for long lines at security checkpoints. While security is a priority for charter flights, making people wait is not a problem. Preflight screening is quick, due to the lack of volume of passengers. A customer’s time is valuable and should not be spent unnecessarily.
For teams, commercial carriers bring their own set of annoyances. Not only is it expensive, but imagine trying to speak to a plane full of players over the din of children running up and down the aisles and even normal conversation. If a flight is delayed due to connection issues, the team will arrive late, jeopardizing their game preparation. Aircraft charters are the ideal solution to getting everyone there together and on time.
