Private Jets A Plus For Business Travel: Less The Stress
Think private jets are strictly for the rich and famous? think again!
It can prove to be more affordable than you realize and well worth the cost when you consider the benefits. Wouldn’t it be nice to reach your destination feeling
refreshed instead of harried and stressed? There just may be more reasons than you think to consider flying a private jet next time you travel.
Flying: A New Way To Do Business
As the popularity of flying in a private jet grows in the United States, rates are
becoming more competitive and affordable. For the same price of a business class or first class ticket, you can enjoy flying in comparative luxury. Companies are
catering more and more to the leisure and business traveler by offering amenities
such as meal and snack menu choices, transportation arrangement and itinerary
Think about all the things you’ll miss by not flying commercial. No more
pushing crowds, long lay-overs, connecting flights, missed flights, intrusive body
searches and x-rays or getting separated from your luggage. To entice more flyers
companies are offering perks such as smoking or non-smoking flights, pets fly free,
free Wi-Fi and discounts or passes for referring future guests.
Let’s say you are planning to take a group of potential clients to a job site. You
could have them fly in and meet at the nearest commercial airport, but that can be confusing and time consuming.
A crowded, noisy airport is not conducive to a calm and relaxed mood.
Your clients would certainly be arriving at different times and waiting in different lines. Some may be running late. On the plane, they’re scattered about in different sections of the cabin.
Now, it's time for the two hour trek to the job site. Your clients have already starting this business trip feeling rushed and irritated; do you really think your would-be clients want to be packed into taxis after what they just went through?
Wouldn't you rather greet your guests over a drink or an appetizer? You will leave your guests with an impression of success when they are whisked off to a private jet, to be flown to the job-site in an atmosphere of relaxation, class and professionalism!
Impart An Aura of Success and Respect
Your Time is Valuable
When you fly commercial you are at the mercy of the airline. Now, Instead of having to work around the flight times of a major airline, you can:
- choose your own departure time.
- Prepare for your trip at your leisure and arrive at your plane at a time that works for you.
- Have the luxury of not having to spend three hours of your day just preparing to board a two hour flight.
- The freedom to board when you choose-no standing in one line to check your luggage, then in another line to go through security, then wait until it’s time to board.
Affordability With Amenities Not Found on Commercial Flights
The price will largely depend on the type and size of the plane and the length of
time you need it. The company you choose to book your flight through should offer
competitive rates. Many also offer additional perks such as booking your hotel
rooms, setting up your itinerary and arranging for transportation from the airport
to your hotel.
Typically, a two hour, one way flight can start at just over $500 (which is about what you’d pay for a business class ticket) or run up to over $2000 for a longer flight and depending on any special accommodations requested. Other factors include how many crew members are needed, which airport you’re flying into and how many people will be traveling on the flight.
While the cost of flying on a private jet is comparable to flying business or first class on a commercial airline, a private jet offers perks you’ll never find on a major airline:
- You will have the luxury of departing and arriving closer to your own schedule needs and
- No extra time going through security checkpoints or sitting around a crowded airport waiting for a flight.
- During the flight, you will be treated to spacious comfortable seating and restaurant quality snacks and meals.
- You can fly into a smaller airport closer to your destination and skip the extra hassle of finding and paying for a cab from a major airport further away.
A Luxurious, Practical and Memorable Experience
On board, you can enjoy your privacy or share the company of your own business
associates instead of strangers. You can conduct the necessary business to prepare for a meeting or relax and unwind before you arrive at your destination. You can enjoy the security and safety of a non-commercial flight and you have a crew you know catering specifically to your needs. There will be no need to wait for your
luggage after the flight and no crowds to fight. The ability to go directly from your flight to a board meeting without feeling rushed and fatigued will be a welcomed change of pace.
The Final Take on Jet Travel?
All things considered, a private jet is very much worth the peace of mind and the
comforts it provides. In fact, why limit all this to business travel alone? Why not
consider a private jet next time you take the family on vacation or when you plan
your next company get-together? No matter what the reason for your travel, a private jet is the perfect choice. Your peace of mind is worth it!
