We’ve often come across people narrating the fact of flying in a first-class or a business class section, instead of hiring or chartering a private jet. But to clear the air, the main difference is that private jets are all about the customers and their needs, while business or first class in the airplanes are all about the airlines.
Although there are plenty of services that offer jet charters, the benefits of it cover more than luxury. Sophistication, comfort, and privacy are the primary advantages of flying in a private jet. But the advantages are not limited to them and extend far beyond the general benefits.
Avoids dissipating time
Commercial airlines often tend to waste more time than we actually realize and most times, the wait is for other passengers, and not the airlines themselves. Not to mention the time taken for security and baggage checks that leave us exhausted even before we reach the destination.
However, this experience can be kept at arm’s length by chartering private jets. The wait time is extended maximum for five to six minutes before the passenger is good to go.
Offers High-end cuisines
Although the commercial airlines try their best on a daily basis to satisfy their customers in taste and delicacies, most times the passengers are borderline satiated and provide improvement feedback on the meals.
However, the chefs and the cook’s in the private jets go out of their way to carefully curate a meal according to the customer’s needs and requirements. Some companies also employ Michelin-starred chefs to cook for their passengers.
Commercial airlines are the most sensitive places where the information leak could happen at any moment with people actually listening to your conversation. However, the same is never experienced in private jets as they’re extremely private and the customer is in full charge of their privacy. The need for compromising privacy is overcome in a private jet.
Wider choice of airports
Commercial airplanes are often huge to accommodate the number of passengers, which limits them to access to the number of airports. Since private jets or planes are competitively compact, they are provided with the liberty of a wider selection of airports to choose from. Hence, they can even land on runways that do not encourage commercial planes.
Commercial flights generally fly over 35,000 feet (ca. 11 km) higher than the sea level, while the chartered flights tend to fly a little higher and also at a faster pace. This means as the height and speed increases, it diminishes the time taken for the trip and also enhances the experience.
