As always, your staff is a pleasure to work with, and are very good with their communication, etc. I (of course) wish we didn't have the snafu with your client cutting the trip short, only to change his mind - costing us an additional 3 hours of flight time (approx. $10,000) - since we cancelled a trip with another operator to accommodate his request to leave early. I think there should have been a consideration for a 2 hour cancellation fee or something there. We understand that this wasn't Stratos Jets' doing - but I believe your client should have been penalized in some way as he was informed we had another trip and he told us to cancel it to accommodate him. This was very disappointing (and financially detrimental) for us, especially as we had lowered the cost of the trip (in addition to removing all minimums) prior to booking. The only way it made sense for us to do that was to fly while sitting transient.
Some other examples of prices come from Avinode, which powers a charter marketplace for brokers and operators and gathers a large amount of data on pricing. Their recent data shows the average price per hour for return trips, for various aircraft. As noted above, these rates can vary depending on when you fly, where you fly and if your flight is one way or return, plus landing fees, ramp fees and any repositioning can all add to the costs. Always ask for a fully inclusive quote from your broker or operator.
I had the pleasure to work with Joel on a last minute trip needed to transport several professional athletes to an event. Joel was fast-acting and completely professional every step of the way. He sent constant updates to make sure our trip needs were met every step of the way. I would recommend Joel and Stratos to anybody looking to book private jets who also values professionalism and accountability.
In the past, flying on a private jet was reserved for a fairly small class of individuals: royalty or the extraordinarily rich and famous. Today, with the globalization of business and changes in society around the globe, private charters are far more accessible to other luxury business or leisure travelers desiring the tremendous comfort, efficiency, privacy, and exclusivity private jet charters provide.
Les riches s’enrichissent encore et encore. Le service des compagnies aériennes commerciales se dégrade, à l’instar de l’expérience aéroportuaire. Toutefois, il est au moins possible, aujourd’hui, d’avoir un aperçu de ce qu’est l’expérience d’un vol privé pour la modique somme de 59 dollars, même si ce n’est qu’à bord d’un avion dont les sièges ressemblent plus à ceux de l’avion régional dans lequel vous voyagez avec les compagnies aériennes normales. On évite tout de même les terminaux de l’aéroport commercial, et l’on ne se présente pour le vol que quinze minutes avant le décollage, ce qui est un luxe suffisant pour faire des heureux.
is extremely upset and disappointed with Stratos Jets as the plane had mechanical problems on take off which delayed the trip by 5 hours. It was his wife's birthday and the entire family had a full day of sightseeing arranged which had to be cancelled. The trip was very costly and he feels he is due back some compensation. Thank you, Etta G.
Depending on who you believe 30-to-50% of all private jet flights are ferry flights. However, that doesn’t mean they are necessarily dirt cheap. Magellan Jets, which sells jet cards and on-demand charter also offers empty legs, and while you have to contact the company for pricing, it says rates start at $3,000 per hour. Airstream Jets enables visitors to its website to download a list of active empty legs and while most of the 13 listings were for the next two weeks, there were flights posted through mid-November, one an empty leg in September on a Gulfstream G-IVSP from New York to London for $49,900. Another broker quoted the same date and route at $92,000. Even more attractive was a G500 charter this weekend from Palermo, Italy to New York for $35,000. Quotes for a non-empty leg charter that I received from another broker for random dates in August started at $111,000.
First time flying on a private plane. Knowing the exact layout inside & manner of boarding. Originally inquired about a Lear jet 35 & then confirmed a citation ll. Not a problem for me & my husband but for the 102 year old traveling with us was difficult to board as initial step into plane was 18 inches & the crew had to find a step stool. Steps were little and required several people to board & inboard her. The crew of Lance & Meagan were exemplary & would fly with them anytime
JetClass compte sur la clientèle d’affaires pour faire décoller ses revenus, mettant en avant, outre le prix, la flexibilité et le confort offerts par cette solution. L’entreprise ne dispose pas de sa propre flotte mais loue des appareils, et adapte ainsi leur taille en fonction des réservations, pour optimiser les coûts. Au Luxembourg, six vols par semaine avec six passagers en moyenne sont envisagés, ainsi que l’ouverture de nouvelles destinations.
The Hawker 750’s biggest advantage is in its cabin, a fuselage-stretch modification first enjoyed by the -800 series. The cabin measures 21.3 feet-long, 5.7 feet-high and 6 feet wide, almost comparable to the class above. This space is plenty big to accommodate seven or eight passengers, a forward galley, a roomy lavatory, and a closet and baggage compartment. For even more amenities, the cabin comes equipped with the Airshow 21 cabin management system, providing user-friendly, LCD screens at every seat and VIP control of cabin temperature, light and entertainment systems. Superior travel is inevitable in the Hawker 750’s cabin.
You will be told how much the hold can take on your chosen aircraft and can upgrade if you feel more space is needed. This will generally be far more than that of a commercial airline. You may also need to upgrade if carrying things like golf clubs and skis. If travelling with a gun, you will need to provide a license and the gun and ammunition must be kept separate. It is then at the captain’s discretion whether it can be on board.
C’est un service qui fonctionne de la même manière que Airbnb, il suffit de s’associer avec des pilotes qui ont des places disponibles dans leurs avions. Les pilotes s’inscrivent au service et, après vérification, ajoutent des détails sur leurs vols planifiés que vous pouvez ainsi réserver. Les pilotes ne font pas de profit, mais c’est un bon moyen pour eux d’obtenir des heures de vol et de réduire leurs frais tout en se livrant à leur passe-temps.
Louer un jet privé selon sa taille, c’est facile avec Private Jet Charter. Les types d’avions, par exemple, petit (léger), moyen, super moyen ou plus lourd, correspondent à leur autonomie et au nombre de passagers qu’ils peuvent emporter. Prenons le cas d’un jet léger, comme un Cessna Citation Jet 2 (CJ2) disposant de 6 places assises, d’une autonomie maximale de 2680km et d’une soute à bagages 2.0954m³. Ce jet est parfait pour un trajet Londres-Paris ou Londres-Genève sans avoir à refaire le plein pour 6 passagers et leurs bagages. Il existe d’autres avions similaires au Cessna Citation Jet 2, par exemple, le Lear 40 ou le Hawker Beechcraft Premier 1.
