People choose to fly on a private jet charter instead of flying commercially for many reasons. It’s more comfortable, for starters. They can also get you to your destination faster by eliminating time waiting at the airport as well as layovers. Many people also choose to fly private because of safety reasons.
Private Jets Fly Above the Weather
Private jets can fly higher than a commercial jet usually can. This means that they also fly higher than any bad weather that a commercial plane can get stuck in. Private jets may be smaller and therefore more susceptible to movement in turbulence, but they can move to avoid bad weather where commercial jets on rigid flight paths cannot.
Private Jets Can Land at Nearly Any Airport
While an emergency landing is unlikely in either a private jet or a commercial plane, if one does become necessary while in-flight, you’ll be able to land sooner in a private jet. Private jets can land at almost any airport, whether it’s a large international airport or a smaller regional airport. This means that you can make that emergency landing more quickly because there are more options available to you nearby.
Strict Safety Requirements
Private jet charter companies like West Palm Jet Charter require that any private jet operator, aircraft, and pilot that they work with meet very strict safety requirements. Pilots must have a certain number of hours experience in the air in the specific plane that they’ll be flying, for example. Operators must meet the safety requirements of IS-BAO, Argus, or Wyvern. Passengers on a private jet charter will know that they’re in good hands.
Private Jets Are Private
Another benefit of flying private is that you and your party are the only passengers. You won’t have to worry about strangers who may be in the cabin with you. When you fly commercial, you may risk being near other passengers who might be infected with COVID-19 or who may try to steal from you while you sleep, assault you, or otherwise cause harm to you. While millions of people fly commercially safely every year, you’ll be able to relax on a private jet with the comforting knowledge that with no other passengers, you’re safe no matter what.
COVID-19 Safety Protocols
Both commercial airlines and private jet operators have safety protocols in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, including cleaning procedures and the requirement that everyone wears masks. However, on a private jet charter, with only the crew and your own party, you’re less likely to be exposed to the virus. With more passengers on a commercial aircraft, there’s a greater chance that someone has been exposed to the virus and is able to spread it to others. With only yourself, your own party members, and the crew onboard the aircraft, there are fewer people who could be exposed. Plus, you’re able to avoid other people more easily at the airport because the private jet terminal is far away from the commercial terminals.
