Are you tired of always having to be at the airport at least 2 hours before departure, to stand in the long queues for baggage drop-off or to queue up for security? Would you like to avoid crowds in the concourse or within the plane, especially in times of Corona? Then you should plan your next trip with a private jet.

In this blog, we will explain the advantages of renting a private plane and what new opportunities it can open up for you. If you would like to know how charter flight prices are set up and what needs to be considered, you can read our blog about it.

Time saving

Airports advise you to arrive 2 to 3 hours before departure so that you are sure to catch your flight. But imagine what you could do instead in 2 to 3 hours at home or at work?

Here is an example: Assume you live an hour away from Frankfurt airport, and you have a meeting which takes place at 4 pm in London. You also need another hour in London to travel from the airport to the meeting , which means you would have to leave your house at 9 am the latest. In this time you have to drive to the airport, check-in, go through security, wait for your flight, fly to London, check out and drive to your meeting. At the end of the meeting, you would have to repeat all these steps and, depending on the duration of your meeting, you would probably not be back home until around midnight. Assuming there is a flight heading back to Frankfurt in the evening.

But if you are renting a private aircraft, you can fly from the airport or airfield closest to your origin or destinaton, which will save yourself the check-in and security checks. It only takes 15 minutes from your car to be in the air taxi. Instead of travelling all day for a two-hour meeting, you can enjoy your morning with your family and you will not have to come home in the middle of the night.

Who likes going on a plane with hundreds of people, children, and babies making all a lot of noise? If you like to fly in peace in order to relax or concentrate, flying with a commercial airline is probably not the ideal option.

When renting a private jet or aircraft, you can be sure that you won’t be disturbed by any screaming children or complaining guests. It will be just you and the pilot on the plane. You can sit back, relax and enjoy your flight to the fullest. In times of Corona, it is also advisable to avoid unnecessary contact. Even if it seems that Europe is slowly recovering from the Corona crisis and returning to old times, a private jet is a good way to protect yourself from the virus, because you are flying from a GAT with a special FBO.

A tailored experience

Renting a private plane and travelling with it is something special! It is an experience you will never forget. You can decide for yourself on which day, at what time and where you want to fly to. You can send an e-mail to a private jet operator and they will make you an offer. But there are also platforms where you can request a flight directly.
