Do you wish to travel by private jet ? AEROAFFAIRES helps you to charter your private jet and answers to 4 frequently asked questions.
Enjoying business aviation is no longer reserved for an elite of wealthy people, celebrities or big bosses. Today, renting a private plane is becoming accessible thanks to taxi planes and the new offers on the market. With more than 17,000 private jets worldwide, 80% of which are available for hire, custom-built aviation represents 8% of air transport in 2020.
Contrary to popular belief, it is as easy to rent a private plane as it is to book a taxi. You will discover that renting a private plane is much cheaper than you can imagine. We give you all the recommendations to book your tailor-made flight in just a few clicks.
Why rent a private plane?
Renting private jets offers many advantages compared to classic commercial flights :
Flexibility for the passengers
With business aviation, you can take off at any time. You don’t have to worry about the unforeseen events that can occur on a business trip with an airliner. You will no longer be dependent on social unrest or delays caused by other passengers. Your president has to return home early? An important and urgent meeting has just been scheduled? Our team is arranging for a change in the plane’s takeoff time.
Moreover, you have access to a wide choice of airports in order to land as close as possible to your final destination without losing time. In Europe, commercial aviation allows you to land at 300 airports, whereas with a private flight, 3 000 airports are accessible.
Some destinations are difficult to reach via commercial flights. You usually have to make one or more stopovers. Renting a private jet with AEROAFFAIRES allows you to arrive directly at your destination without wasting time in a transit airport. Thus, 2/3 of private flights take routes not served by commercial aviation.
A saving of time for your professional or private trip
Thanks to private aviation, you will be able to connect several destinations in the same day: start the day in Paris, meet teams in Geneva, have lunch in Luxembourg with new clients, attend the inauguration of a factory in Innsbruck, and be home for dinner. Business aviation also saves time when boarding. Less than 20 minutes of waiting time, compared to 2 hours in Business Aviation or 1 hour when you are in Business Class.
Booking a private plane is also very quick. You can take off 2 hours after validation of the flight, a time that no airline would be able to compete with.
A productivity tool for companies
Private aviation offers real profitability for the company. Many of our clients have told us about the importance of business aviation in emergency situations. Beyond the financial aspect, business aviation plays a role in the quality of work and the productivity of managers and employees. During a flight, you can work, think in a quiet space and even hold a meeting. Renting a private aircraft is to guarantee a qualitative and optimized working time and to be more productive.
A comfort offering serenity
A trip on a private jet is a luxurious means of transportation. On board the aircraft, you have access to a modern and comfortable cabin offering a relaxing experience for passengers. Before take-off and on landing, the private terminals welcome you in a quiet and privileged space.
Confidentiality around your private flight
Confidentiality is privileged with a private flight. We have special terminals with VIP lounges. Your wait before boarding is short and in an exclusive space. On board the private aircraft, meetings can take place behind closed doors, in optimal discretion for ultra-confidential exchanges.
Private airplane rental: at what price?
Business aviation may seem less economical than commercial aviation. However, several elements must be examined in order to understand that a private jet can, to some extent, be more profitable :
- The financial gain related to the time saving. Waiting times for boarding, delays in the event of industrial action, or cancellation of commercial flights represent a real cost. A high hourly rate can quickly cost a company a lot of money if the passenger is stuck in an airport on the other side of the world.
- The cost of renting a taxi plane can be reduced depending on the number of seats occupied on the private jet. The more you fill the plane, the lower the fee per person will be.
- When you charter a private jet, a package of services are includes. The hours of flight, the model of private jet you rent, the crew mobilized (2 pilots at least with the flight crew), and the distance of your trip are determining variables. In some cases, renting a private jet is more profitable than a business class flight.
You must carefully consider the true cost of renting a private jet. Especially since there are other options available to fly cheaper in a private jet, such as empty legs. It is therefore essential to ask yourself the following question.
