In many cases, it’s possible to book a private jet charter directly with the private jet operator. So why should you book through a broker instead? Brokers have access to the fleets or multiple operators, rather than just one. This means that the broker can look around for you and find the best deal for the best aircraft for your needs. Plus, the broker can do the work for you by researching operators, checking the maintenance records and pilot hours, and vetting the crew. In addition, booking through a broker may be less expensive, since you could benefit from any discounts that the broker receives with an operator.
