10 good reasons to turn to business aviation:

“Too expensive”, “reserved for very important people”, “not very accessible”, “blingy”: private aviation has a bad press. And yet, the reality is far from the cliché that is often presented when talking about business aviation. That is why we are giving you 10 good reasons to turn to private aviation.


Business aviation offers great flexibility for passengers, who have total freedom in the choice of their itineraries. They can choose to plan their flight at any time, thus freeing themselves from the sometimes restrictive schedules of flights on commercial or regular routes. The list of passengers and the number can also be changed until the last minute, something that is impossible with conventional airlines.


Business aviation saves passengers invaluable time. Private jets can land at small airfields as close as possible to the passenger’s final destination. In addition, business terminals avoid the usual two hours required to check-in and go through security that are required in a commercial terminal. For example, the average time between arrival at a business terminal and take-off is only 15 minutes. Furthermore, the private jet flies directly to its destination; there is no mandatory stopover.
The business media company Capital estimates that a CEO who makes about 30 trips a year can earn the equivalent of a month’s work by favouring private jet rentals.


In addition to saving time, business aviation provides access to many more destinations than commercial aviation. In fact, an airliner only serves 300 airports in Europe when nearly 4,000 airports are available to private jets, particularly thanks to taxi planes. This makes it possible to get as close as possible to one’s final destination.

Safety, security and discretion

Business aviation provides absolute discretion to the travellers who use it. Professionals are protected from any threat of eavesdropping, industrial espionage or even physical threat. Travelling with a business aviation company allows them to travel with complete discretion and peace of mind.

Optimized work environment 

Managers and employees who travel rarely stop working during their journeys. But sometimes it’s hard to think on a commercial plane. Noise, lack of privacy and unsuitable space make it difficult to be productive. The private jet, on the other hand, is perfectly optimized for this. Dedicated spaces are often set up: office tables, video-conference screens or even Wi-Fi connection. Everything is designed so you can continue to work and communicate remotely. In addition, the captain and the attendants are there to ensure the quality services specific to business jets.
This ability to work and communicate in a jet is essential for companies in a world where the economic, commercial and financial environment is ever changing.
Moreover, studies have proven that managers can be 5 to 7 times more productive and employees 4 times more when flying privately. An undeniable advantage!

Absolute serenity and tranquilit

We take care of chartering your jet and getting you to the business airport, handling transfers in prestige vehicles or helicopters, airport schedules and constraints, customs procedures, visa regulations, insurance, etc. With business aviation, you stay focused on your mission and don’t have to worry about the logistics of your trip.

Staying in shape

Business travel also allows passengers to remain vigorous and dynamic. Travelling in the modern and comfortable cabin of a private jet is less tiring for an employee than a short and medium-haul commercial aircraft seat with shorter waiting times and no stopovers.

Waive costs

Travelling by private jet exempts companies from certain costs. Indeed, flying in a private jet guarantees completing your business trip quickly. Thus, the costs of hotels, taxis or even catering for employees are reduced. These costs can be significant if there are many travellers.
The appearance of more economical taxi planes also makes business aviation more and more accessible to everyone.

Increasing visibility

The business aviation market makes it easy for executives to increase their visibility in locations away from head office. It is particularly essential for big groups that have facilities scattered over very large areas. Similarly, private aviation makes it very easy to meet a company’s stakeholders.
Despite all the technological means of communication, physical travel is sometimes essential for forging ties and signing contracts.

Renting is more cost-effective than owning a jet

Renting a private jet is often more economical than owning one.

The cost of purchasing an aircraft as well as all the costs related to its operation (maintenance, personnel costs, fuel and port taxes) are significant. It is estimated that 410 flight hours are needed to offset the purchase and operating costs of a private jet.

Who are the business aviation travellers?

Business leaders, executives and employees

Transporting a company’s employees is the main use of a private jet. It can serve many purposes: negotiating contracts, doing business in Europe and around the world, exploring opportunities, maintaining relationships with stakeholders or visiting company subdivisions.
In particular, the flexibility of the business jet provides significant added value for a business leader with a busy agenda. Martin S., an AEROAFFAIRES customer and head of an ETI based in Lorient, has several production centres in Europe. When he has to meet each of his teams to follow his activity, he can only do so in a private jet. Flying on a commercial airline, taking the train or even driving would force him to lose more than three days for his visits. With our tailor-made charter offer, Mr S. can complete his four visits to Europe in a single day and return home the same evening. He can even continue to work in the comfort of the cabins.


Chartering a private aircraft for a client is common practice in some industries. It allows the client to visit facilities, discover new products or services or negotiate a contract.


A private jet allows companies to accelerate or improve the integration of their supply chain by transporting suppliers. The latter can visit a production site, be invited to relevant meetings or simply conclude contracts.

Wealthy people

Wealthy families and successful entrepreneurs are also business travellers who regularly charter private jets. Business aviation provides them with unparalleled comfort and total flexibility in their travels.

Freight transportation

A private jet can also be used to transport goods. This practice makes it possible to deliver a package to a customer very quickly, to ensure the safe transport of a fragile or very high-value good, or to maintain critical production by bringing in repair parts or missing raw materials.
