Private jet instead of vacation plane: These are the advantages
If you travel by private jet instead of a vacation plane, you avoid the currently long waiting times in front of the baggage counter and the security check. That’s because the airlines that pilot rented jets use separate terminals where you don’t have to check in until shortly before departure. We explain why a private charter flight can also be advantageous during the vacation season.
European air traffic is running at full speed again this summer. However, with fewer staff. Because major airlines, airports and other service providers cut jobs during the Corona period, they are overwhelmed with the many travelers. The consequences: Cancelled flights, hours of waiting and chaos with luggage. This can be very stressful, especially for families with small children, but also for travel groups with a fixed itinerary. You can avoid all this stress by booking a private jet or group charter.
The advantages of a private jet and group charter at a glance:
- Hardly any waiting time, because other terminal
Even if you have booked an upgrade to business class on your vacation plane: You can’t avoid the long waits in front of security checkpoints. On a private flight, you can. Upon arrival at the airport, head straight to the private jet terminal. There, the crew of your flight will welcome you. You check in, drop off your luggage, pass through an exclusive security gate and can board immediately. It is sufficient to be at the airport 30 minutes before departure. If there is a short wait, there is a lounge nearby where you can eat, drink and relax.
- No flight cancellation: the charter is reserved for you
Once you’ve chartered an aircraft, it’s reserved in your name for the time and route you want. Flight cancellations are almost non-existent. This is because the private jet industry, unlike the major airlines, has not had to lay off any personnel. On the contrary, private flying was the safest solution during the Corona lockdowns.
- Further protection from Corona
Even now in the summer, while Corona is still circulating, private flying protects against contagious diseases. You avoid crowds, keep sufficient distance and sit on the plane only with people you know. This significantly minimizes the risk of infection.
- Departure time is freely selectable
In contrast to conventional charter planes, you can determine the departure time of a rented plane yourself, depending on the available slot. It is best to specify your departure time at the time of booking so that the airline can plan and register your tour. Flight delays are extremely rare.
- More destinations: Take-off and landing at small airports
Whether you fly from Cologne, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Munich or Berlin to your destination is up to you. If you don’t live near a major airport, you can also use smaller, regional airports. This is because private jets also take off from shorter runways. This means that you can equally fly to a wider range of destinations, in Europe and around the world.
