Aircraft Charter

By: Raylam
Charter flying is very different from simply buying a ticket on the local or national public aviation carrier. Chartering an aircraft, although not the cheapest way to get from one place to another offers benefits that cannot be found anywhere else in the aviation industry.

It's more efficient. High value or expensive personnel from a company may travel together and continue to conduct business. The possibility of "closing the deal" while in route to a destination cannot be minimized. Trying to get work accomplished while sandwiched between other people in a typical coach flight is almost impossible. A useful and private business meeting can be held on board a chartered jet or propeller aircraft making the trip to your destination that much more efficient.

Finally, air charter planners also have access to hundreds of airports, so rather than flying consistently into the busiest cities around the world you can choose to go to a smaller, less congested airport or field.

The 1964 Lear Jet was the first private jet manufactured and mass-produced for the general civilian market. Today, its descendant, the Lear Jet 60 is one of the most common corporate jets in use. Other business and corporate jets include the Gulfstream IV-SP, which not only features oak furnishings, leather sofas and a soundproof interior, it is capable of circumnavigating the globe in 37 hours. The Cessna Citation X is capable of carrying 12 passengers in comfort at speeds of nearly 1000 kilometers per hour, making it the fastest production aircraft made.

Along with the increase in comfort and capability have also come steep increases in price and upkeep costs, which is why companies find it more cost-effective to simply chart flights on corporate jets on an as-needed basis. A charter flight is not only more cost-effective, it can also result in significant tax savings for your company as well!
