5 Reasons You Should Fly Private

Travelers often wonder what the advantages are of flying on a private jet in comparison to flying on a commercial airline. While private aircraft accommodations are synonymous with opulence, the true benefits of flying with a private aircraft are convenience, efficiency, stress reduction, privacy and flexibility.

Convenience

One of the greatest things about flying on a private charter is convenience. With over 5,000 airports in the U.S., compared to 500 airports for larger commercial flights, our guests can avoid the distraction of flying out of busy airport hubs. Our clients who reside near a smaller, general aviation airport can depart directly from their point of origin, thus, eluding the dense traffic that is found at larger airports. This allows us to land you closer to your true destination.
