Saving Time with Air Charter
Air charter is usually only more cost efficient than commercial air travel when the transportation of large numbers of people are involved – such as the company who needs to transport 200 employees to a conference.
Only on those occasions can air chartering prove cheaper than commercial airlines.
The rest of the time, air chartering is to do with efficiency, privacy and flexibility.
With private charter, they can do this – and can continue to work while doing so, even on board the aircraft.
Whatever your priorities, charter air travel gives you the freedom to organize the trip around your needs. And on longer journeys can even save huge amounts of airtime.
When you fly scheduled airlines, you travel on the airline’s schedule and zigzag along their routes, connecting here, changing planes there, and sometimes doubling or tripling your travel time. Add to that the frustration of long drives to and from airports.
A private jet can land in smaller airports, usually closer to the final destination – only stopping for fuel if necessary. If the correct type of aircraft is chosen in the first place, even fuel stops should be unnecessary except on transglobal journeys.
An example of the time difference in a simple journey can be demonstrated by two executives leaving central London to travel to Malaga in the south of Spain.
Passenger 1 travels from central London to Heathrow, checks in, catches a commercial jet, takes off, lands and (assuming no baggage) walks through departure in Malaga roughly 3 to 4 hours later.
A private charter can collect the same traveller by helicopter from central London , land him next to the private jet and 1.45 minutes he is walking through departure in Malaga , even with luggage.
When you times that difference by 4 or 8 passengers who have two weeks of travel in front of them, the advantages of air charter become clear. Work productivity is clearly going to be higher and schedules much easier to maintain.
