If there’s one big advantage to being a business professional, it’s the opportunity to travel to different places and meet new people, whether across the country or around the world.
The number one method of travel for business people is by plane, since it is faster and more convenient; however, over the years the popularity of private air charter services among businesses has steadily increased.
Why are more professionals flying on private jets?
There are many reasons, but the main ones include saving time, convenience and flexibility, quality of service, and privacy.
Understandably, many business professionals have scheduled events that they need to arrive on time for.
With a private jet, flights can be arranged in complete accordance with your scheduling needs. You can fly straight to your destination without any stops or flight delays, and you can avoid overnight stays.
Additionally, with a private jet, you can land closer to your destination. This allows you to bypass the many terminals and baggage claim areas of the typical commercial airport, not to mention all of the other people. You also have the luxury of traveling with your belongings and do not have to be concerned about losing them.
Should you need to work on the flight, you can do so easily and, because you will be traveling privately, you can preserve the secrecy of any sensitive business information.
Two tips for first-time business flyers
Below are two important tips to take into consideration if this will be your first time using a private jet charter service:
1. Plan in advance.
As a general rule of thumb, the longer the flight, the further you should plan in advance. Understandably, you’ll want to be prepared for your business meeting, arrive on time, and avoid any inconveniences. Know the dates and times of your trip as well as any requirements (such as number of travelers) and flight preferences.
The more information you provide upfront, the more options a jet charter company can deliver. If you will be traveling to multiple destinations, be sure to plan dates and times accordingly and book in advance.
2. Determine the type of aircraft.
You have options with regards to the type of aircraft you fly in, which can vary depending upon the size of your party and your personal preferences. If you do have an aircraft preference, let the jet company know. If you’re not sure which suits you best or if difference in aircraft matters, ask a professional.
