FAQs about Private Jet Charter
Flying on a private jet charter is much safer than flying commercial during a pandemic. In fact, because of the health concerns of flying commercial, many more people are turning to flying private. The passengers are only yourself and your own party, so you won’t come into contact with anyone else. The crew and pilots can take safety precautions such as maintaining social distancing and wearing masks when interacting with passengers. In addition, the cabin is kept clean in between passengers. If you have specific requests that would make you feel more comfortable flying, the crew will do their best to accommodate you.
The safety of passengers is our number one priority. Even though flying private means that you don’t have to go through the TSA’s security checkpoint, a private jet charter is very secure. There are fewer passengers, so private jet brokers can vet passengers at the beginning of the booking process. In addition, private jet brokers rigorously check the safety records for every operator that they use. In fact, the safety checks that private jets have to go through can be even more rigorous than those for commercial aircraft. Private jet travel is therefore just as safe, if not even safer, than flying commercial.
