If you are a businessman and can afford it, owning your own private jet has many advantages. Long hours of flying become hours of work. Private jets are real flying offices with technology and services on board that are as good or better than on the ground. Even in the sky, it is possible to enjoy a high-speed network, extreme comfort and staff at your service.
