Résultat : certaines compagnies mettent en vol ses places « à vide » à un prix défiant toute concurrence. Il est même possible de négocier. En effet, les compagnies sont prêtes à tout ou presque pour ne pas perdre trop d’argent. 75% de ristourne n’est pas impossible. Et il n’est pas rare de trouver des billets en jet privé moins cher que des premières..
Nous pouvons également citer Blink, qui n’est autre que le concurrent de Wijet. Cette compagnie de jet privé low cost propose des voyages en Europe de l’ouest dans des jets de 4 places. Citons également PrivateFly, autre compagnie de jet privé à petit prix composée d’une flotte de pas moins de 7 000 jets privés. Ici, la location de jet privé s’opère au sein d’un réseau de 2 700 opérateurs dans des délais extrêmement courts.
Certains opérateurs d’aviation privée, dont Wheels Up et JetSmarter, ont créé des applications vous permettant de vendre des sièges à d’autres passagers après que vous avez réservé vos vols, diminuant ainsi vos dépenses. Pour quatre membres partageant un KingAir 35oi sur un vol de deux heures, chacun paiera environ 2 200 dollars. Bien sûr, il faut avoir payé, en amont, un forfait d’abonnement d’environ 17 500 dollars, sans compter le paiement d’un tarif horaire de plus de 4 000 dollars lorsque vous voyagez seul.
Since day one, Joel and his team have been providing us with great customer service and always meet or exceed our needs. They are impeccable in their constant communication, which includes everything from quotes to flight status, and all in between. They are very accommodating to all requests, even the last minute ones. Sarah with trip support has carefully and flawlessly helped with all requested travel arrangements, from car rental to car service. It is hard to find a company these days that is genuine and understands the importance of truly great customer service, and this company and all members of the team, have this! It is very refreshing. I would recommend this company to anyone who has ever thought about trying Jet Charters or has done so for years, it will be a change for the best!
My experience with Stratos has been very good since I started booking jets several years ago. Joel and his team provide excellent service and followup at every stage. We recently had a flight where the incoming plane had a mechanical and they were able to replace it with a comparable one within just a few hours. Our original take off time was only missed by less than a half hour. The Stratos team communicated with us all along the way and everything was fine. The pilots are very good at what they do and the ground organization is thorough and efficient. I would recommend them to a friend.
I have worked with Joel and Stratos Jets for several years and it has always been a pleasure. Most recently they booked a flight from St Petersburg, FL to Sanford, FL to Niagara Falls, NY with us on our Citation CJ1. The experience, as always was flawless and realtime feedback and communication meant the ASAP flight went without a hitch. Thank you Joel and team, I look forward to many more years of business with you.

From start to finish, our experience with Stratos was totally professional, made very simple and the ultimate in how charter travel should be booked/enjoyed! We know it takes an entire team behind the scenes but all credit to Joel for his 'personal' touch and for making our return trip to New York a very memorable one indeed!!! We have used several charter companies worldwide over the years but Joel and his team beat them all!!!
