I met Joel, years ago, when he first introduced me to Stratos Jet Charters during its start-up phase. I was always very impressed on their marketing and honesty, as a broker. Joel is very genuine and caring when it comes to his customers or the operators that he works with. I know that Stratos Jets will not sacrifice safety for anything. I know that he likes to treat everyone like they are part of the Stratos Jet family. The trip planning process, from quote request to trip planning to invoice, is seamless – they’ve thought of everything and continue to be ahead of the trend in our industry with the way they do things. They think of everything! In my opinion, Stratos Jet Charters set the bar for aircraft brokerage and I will always continue to look forward to working with them.
Joel and Stratos are amazing! He made sure our flight was tailored perfectly and was very responsive and always available for contact. They catered specifically to our needs with late notice. The pilots were fantastic and patient, especially considering we had three animals and arrived 10 minutes before take-off. They provided the smoothest flight in the Hawker we’ve ever taken. Stratos offered transportation to and from; the boarding process was welcoming and convenient. We will only fly privately with Stratos Jets through Joel and his team. Thank you guys for everything!
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.
We go through great lengths to make sure your safe journey. We are proud to state that so far passage of our journey has been safe and no mishappening recorded. We ensure all the safety measures while providing you the most deserving private jet services. The ground staff and competent crew members stay alert for your safety and privacy with utmost concern.
Always enjoy flying privately. Exciting from planning a trip to booking to flight(s). Predominantly use Stratos. Attentive and personal service. Joel Thomas was a great go to person. All subcontractors that they use have been top-notched. Only critique is I obtained better final pricing of the flight when I received quotes from other charter companies. Seems to be an industry thing about competitive pricing in order to obtain the best price. Yes I would recommend Stratos.
Delta Private Jets, a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, earlier this year launched Sky Access. You pay $8,500 and can fly as many empty legs as you want at no additional cost. You also get 20% off select fares on Delta’s airline flights. There is a $500 fee if you cancel or no show. Over this weekend 66 empty legs were listed, although some such as Ft. Lauderdale to Miami, all of 30 miles, wouldn’t even give you time to pop open a beer. More interesting was Washington D.C. to Chicago and New York to Sarasota. There were also Nantucket to New York and Las Vegas to San Francisco, however, they were both on Friday, so the wrong direction for most people, and that’s the point, and perhaps a good segue to discussing the some of the downsides.
Everything worked out great. Working with Stratos was seamless. When the Trump TFR foiled our plans on both the outbound and inbound legs, Stratos was proactive in finding the best solution for us and minimized the disruption to the timing of our itinerary while also remaining flexible to our schedule as well. Joel could not have been easier to work with, finding us the best options at the best prices.
Les avions de petite capacité conviennent parfaitement au transport de petits groupes sur de courtes distances. Les groupes en question correspondent souvent à des voyageurs d’affaires, des professionnels prenant des navettes entre leurs bureaux français et leurs filiales européennes par exemple, le transport en avion charter de groupes de passagers ou encore des équipes sportives ou de supporters (football, rugby,…).

Recently booked a jet for 11 people from my organization to continue operations during hurricane Irma. As business owners know, operations do not cease during a disaster and customers must continue to be served. Stratos Jet Charters booked the aircraft we needed within an hour of reaching out. Our team was able to continue business operations in NYC seamlessly. Much appreciation to Joel and his team for fast action!
Au début des années 90, les bénéfices se trouvaient du côté du concept du taxi aérien, propulsé par une nouvelle génération de petits jets privés. L’ancien président de la compagnie aérienne American Airlines, Robert Crandall, et le fondateur de People Express, Donald Burr, soutinrent une entreprise du nom de Pogo qui ne prit jamais son envol. Une autre entreprise du même acabit, DayJet, sombra avant même d’avoir fait ses premiers pas. Le concept du taxi aérien ne décolla jamais.
JetClass a inauguré jeudi son premier vol entre le Luxembourg et Zurich. La jeune entreprise de service de voyage, qui propose des sièges sur des vols en jet privé, signait ainsi son arrivée au Grand-Duché. «Notre technologie permet d’étudier le marché et de scanner les prix proposés en business et première classe sur les compagnies classiques, pour déterminer quelle route serait profitable tout en proposant des tarifs compétitifs par rapport à ces offres», dit Wagas Ali, CEO et cofondateur de la société. Ainsi, après un tarif de lancement à 390 euros, la ligne entre Luxembourg et Zurich s’affichera à partir de 541 euros l’aller et 737 euros le retour.
Pourtant, il est possible de payer moins cher, du moins chez nos voisins. Exactement comme les compagnies aériennes régulières et les hôtels, plusieurs compagnies de jets américaines utilisent la technique de vente des offres de dernière minute. JetSuite est un exemple assez marquant. La compagnie vole dans plus de 2 000 aéroports et propose chaque jour des deals de dernière minute qui permettent, dans des conditions idéales, de louer un jet entier de 6 places à partir de 536 $!
If the paying customer – that person shelling out $5,000 to $20,000 per hour - cancels his or her trip, then your empty leg will also be cancelled. If you were going somewhere, make sure your hotel and car rental reservations can be changed without penalty. If you were using an empty leg to get home, make sure you also scan the airline schedules and availability so you have a backup plan. Most empty legs can be cancelled anytime before departure, and reasons can include that delays earlier in the day meant your pilots ran out of time to something on the inbound flight broke and needs to be fixed. Oh, and that’s it. You’ll get a refund of your money, but you’re usually on your own, perhaps sitting in a private jet terminal at an airport with no commercial flights.
As a part 135 operator, I have been doing business with Stratos Jets since it was founded by Joel Thomas in 2006. Since the first trip I could tell they were a different type of Jet brokerage. Joel and his team of aviation advisors have always conducted themselves with the highest of standards and partnered with platinum operators like us to give their customers a luxurious private jet experience. Thank you for a decade of partnership and excellence.Thank you for your friendship!Rich Brennan VP of Sales
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.
Si aucun vol à vide ne correspond à votre itinéraire et à vos horaires exacts, LunaJets recherche dans sa propre base de données afin de réacheminer un vol à vide. Ainsi, un jet privé effectue un arrêt supplémentaire pour venir vous chercher à votre aéroport de départ ou vous déposer à l’aéroport de votre choix, ou les deux. Ce type d’arrêt engendre des frais supplémentaires (frais d’atterrissage, carburant supplémentaire) que LunaJets négocie auprès des opérateurs afin de vous garantir le meilleur prix pour la location de votre avion privé. Bien que ce type de vol soit proposé à un tarif supérieur aux vols à vide, le prix des vols à vide réacheminés sera toujours moins élevé que le plein tarif des vols à la demande à bord de jets privés.
