Peace of mind!!! My family and I just completed our first charter on a private jet with Stratos. My wife and I have been on a few of our friend’s charters before and I fly regularly on my company's aircraft but this was the first charter of our own. Stratos and specifically Joel Thomas made my wife and I feel that we were in great hands throughout the planning, selection and ultimately flight process. Family loved it!!! Great experience.
We prefer to finalize our itinerary, plane and crew at least a week in advance. We did not get things completely final until the day of the actual flight. Secondly, we prefer to pay post-flight rather than pre-flight. You were able to make an exception in our case which was appreciated. Lastly, the quality of the catering service from STT was atrocious. It was inedible.
Of course, the cheapest way to fly privately is to have a friend who invites you on their flight. Then there are the semi-private charters like JetSmarter, JetSuiteX and JetClass where you can buy a seat on a scheduled private jet and corporate shuttle flight sharing it with strangers, much like if you were on a commercial airline. You can buy tickets on these flights for under $200 and you do avoid those crowded main airport terminals. However, if you want to have the real deal experience, chartering your own private jet, you are looking at something between $5,000 and up to $20,000 per hour depending on the size of aircraft and routing.
Like scheduled airline service, private jets also have weight limits with regard to the amount of luggage that can be stowed during a trip. Items such as skis and golf clubs are allowed as long as they conform to the dimensions and weight limits of the aircraft. These weight limits vary by aircraft type. Ask your charter sales representative if you have concerns about excess baggage or special items to be included in your luggage.
S'envoler pour Londres ou Venise à bord d'un petit jet privé en payant son billet à peine plus cher qu'en classe "business" d'une compagnie de type Swiss ou Air France, c'est désormais possible.... Une société genevoise propose ce service depuis quelques mois. La plate-forme internet propose des centaines de trajets assurés par une soixantaine d'opérateurs de jets privés. Le point avec Eymeric Segard, fondateur de Lunajets.
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.
Pour la période 2016-2025, le canadien Bombardier prévoit ainsi un marché de 8.300 avions privés dont 2.400 jets long-courriers. Car le jet privé, c’est l’arme absolue du businessman international pressé. L’un des meilleurs exemples est le Français Carlos Ghosn. Comment le super-P-DG de Renault-Nissan-Avtovaz et maintenant Mitsubishi pourrait-il faire sans son Gulfstream G650 ? Toujours entre Paris, Moscou, Tokyo, le Brésil ou les Etats-Unis, il en a fait son bureau et son hôtel volant. Officiellement propriété de la marque japonaise, l’avion est facétieusement immatriculé N155AN (lire "Nissan").
Un important joueur dans le marché des avions privés sont les courtiers. Les courtiers sont des chevilles importantes entre les opérateurs de location et le client. Ils cherchent un marché vaste des meilleures options pour votre demande de vols et sont votre contact personnel. Différents courtiers se différencient souvent face à une livraison de services personnels. Les courtiers calculent une marge supérieure aux prix de vol choisi par les opérateurs et avion. Les marges courent de 250 € par réservation jusqu’à 5% du montant d’achat du jet privé.
Flight was for an elderly person and the tail number was provided a long time before the flight and I made sure the person flying had all the info written down by someone who could hear and got everything correct. Flyer had that until day before when tail number changed. I had to find someone who could hear me well and right down the correct info for the person traveling so he got it straight in his head and for driver.
