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.
Beginning with the ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321, which feature three times more interior space than traditional high-end business jets, without being significantly larger externally; they set the new standard to which corporate jet customers aspire. Customers benefit not only from unequalled comfort, space and freedom of movement on every trip but also from the technical advantages of Airbus’ state-of-the-art modern aircraft. This successful corporate jet family is also now expanding with two highly-capable new members: the ACJ319neo (new engine option) and ACJ320neo, which provide further enhancements in comfort, range and efficiency.
Other near-term empty leg deals included Houston to Aspen on a Citation X seating eight for $14,000, not much less than an eight-seat Learjet 45XR for $18,945 with a normal charter. Skyjet, a broker that also offers empty legs had one this weekend from Nassau in the Bahamas to Ft. Lauderdale on a six-seat Phenom 300 for $3,000. Ft. Lauderdale to Key West and Tampa to Ft. Lauderdale, also on a Phenom 300, were being offered at $2,625 each. Chartering a similar aircraft for the same timings the regular way would run around $6,000.
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.
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.
Non mais attendez ... c'est quoi cette arnaque ? ce ne sont PAS des vols privés, c'est juste une compagnie aérienne qui opère des vols commerciaux sur un appareil 4 places, dans ce qui ressemble à de la business class plutôt bas de gamme. Et les franchises bagages (25+10) sont même tout juste au niveau de n'importe quelle classe économique. Ce n'est pas un vol privé, car d'une part ce sont des horaires fixes (dans un vol privé, c'est le client qui fixe l'horaire), et d'autre part si vous êtes deux, ben il y aura deux autres personnes avec vous ...
Nous disposons d’une très large flotte de jets allant des 4 places, comme le Citation Mustang ou le Citation Jet CJ2, aux plus de 30 places comme le Boeing Business Jet et le Fokker 100 VIP en passant par les 16 places comme le Gulfstream G550 ou le Bombardier Global Express. Si vous avez besoin de transporter en plus de passagers, vous pouvez nous contacter directement (Sujet à disponibilité, nous avons accès à un certain nombre d’avions de lignes convertis)
