Charter Flying and Today’s Global Marketplace!
By Dana Rasmussen
Companies all over the United States fly employees to and from meetings and events every day. Many opt for commercial flights thinking it is the most cost-effective way to travel, probably because these companies are not aware of the unique benefits offered by private aviation to business travelers.
These benefits include:
Cost:Â With the economic downturn on the forefront of almost everyone's minds, the cost of private jet travel is something that many think is prohibitive. But consider what the cost includes.
To begin with, charter jet consumers pay not per seat, but by the flight itself. That means whether there is one person on board or six people, the cost of the flight remains the same. It also means that employees are not wasting valuable time waiting in security at the airport, sitting on airliners with all of their electronics powered down, and then spending time on the flight unable to discuss important business information unless they want everyone else on board to overhear.
While commercial flights may cost less per ticket, the costs associated with the amount of time wasted most likely far outweigh the cost of private jet travel.
More Destinations: Private jets have the ability to land in areas that large commercial jets do not have access to. Some estimates state private jets can access up to 10 times as many airports as commercial jets. Access to regional airports and airstrips can benefit the business traveler by taking him or her closer to a final destination.
Scheduling: Private jet travel operates on the passengers' schedule, not an airline's. This is especially beneficial for passengers with a need to fly to multiple destinations in the same day. Arranging the same kind of travel commercially is virtually impossible.
This is also beneficial in that teams of coworkers can travel together on a private jet and conduct business in the air.
In addition, many private jets are able to take off on short notice.
Time Saving: Because private jet travel does not require passengers to check in early, go through security checkpoints, or wait on delayed aircraft, they save a lot of time. In addition, there are no layovers involved.
Once passengers arrive at their destination, a car service is generally on hand to take passengers wherever they need to go.
Health: Private jets provide a cleaner way to travel. For instance, because of the number of people in a commercial jetliner, germs can be rampant.Â Germs on commercial airliners include H1N1, e Coli, listeria, MRSA, and various strains of influenza â€“ and not just during cold and flu season.
This is especially beneficial to business travelers as they don't need to miss out on work by catching the flu on a commercial flight.
Luxury: One of the biggest benefits to flying privately is the luxury that is afforded to its passengers.
The flight crew is always on-call and passengers have their choice of food, beverages, and entertainment options.
