A private jet rental may sound like something that only wealthy corporations and powerful politicians have the option to indulge in, but you may be surprised at its affordability and convince as an alternative to commercial airlines. These are just a few benefits (of many):
Business Travel- Many businesses find that private jet rental is a better option than commercial airlines for flying executives or clients back and forth.
Corporate Events – Besides individual travel, some companies may want to send employees on retreats or special business meetings in other cities. With this option, they can travel together to better coordinate on-ground transportation and hotel stays.
Parties / Group Events – Even for individuals, a private jet rental may be something you consider for a special birthday party, or a graduation gift for that college senior.
Weddings – You may want to fly your entire wedding party to go to a destination for the big event, or maybe send a small group to a reception location after the wedding.
Vacations – Whether just for your family or with a large group of friends and family, chartering a plan can be a nice alternative to regular flights.
Private jet rental companies usually offer different options for travel. Some may have regular routes that they travel on a daily or weekly basis. Others have regular destinations, but only as those trips are reserved. Others may have some great last minute deals that may allow you to do that spur-of-the-moment beach trip for the weekend. Many businesses offer lease packages where you reserve specific time on a jet on a monthly basis.
For a business that has clients and executives in various locations, reserving time with a company that can also travel to those destinations on a regular basis is probably a good alternative to constantly scheduling commercial flights.
The rates vary greatly among the type of service and aircraft. Remember, however, that you are reserving an aircraft. If you have a lot of folks going that can contribute to the cost, it makes the individual expense that much less. Consider that a round trip ticket from your town to Las Vegas is on a private jet is $1200 for a six-seat plane. If you have five other friends going, the cost for each of you is only $200. That is most likely cheaper than a the price paid for a commercial flight, and you also won’t have the hassle of baggage check-in or waiting in line to get on and off the plane!
