Why Charter with Jet Aviation?

Is aircraft charter a safe way to fly?
Yes. Aircraft charter is as safe as flying with one of the top airlines in the world. Aircraft used for charter services fulfill the same stringent technical requirements as any state-of-the-art airliner. Charter companies and pilots are certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and country specific Authorities before they are allowed to fly. Once this certification is achieved, their continued operation is at the Authorities' discretion, and they receive constant oversight under rigid safety regulations.


Are there financial benefits to chartering an aircraft?
If you are in a fractional program or once owned an aircraft, you will find, you give up nothing in service, safety and comfort, but without a major capital expenditure. Flying charter requires no investment, nor is there the risk of lower residual aircraft value after a few years. Charter is the most cost-effective choice you can make. Combine the financial benefits with the efficiency of the charter choice, and you have made the right decision.


What are some other advantages of charter flying?
Security, safety, comfort and productivity are the top reasons businesses and individuals charter today. You can set your own schedule and determine the appropriate aircraft for the routes and destinations of your choice. Aircraft charter is often the most efficient private aviation solution, in terms of both time and money. With over 10,000 general aviation airports available to charter aircraft worldwide, you’ll land closer to your final destination than if you would flying commercially. This benefit alone will save you great amounts of time. Arrive at the airport, check in immediately and be on your way, with privacy, discretion, and the highest service and quality standards.


How do I know what model aircraft is best for my trip?
This is a question of matching the proper aircraft type to the mission profile of your trip. The distance you plan to travel, the number of passengers or amount of luggage on board will be typical factors you will want to consider. In general, smaller aircraft are more economical for short trips. They seat fewer passengers and operate at lower costs. Larger jets are more comfortable for long trips with higher numbers of people traveling.


What kind of in-flight service standards and amenities can I expect when I charter?
If you are accustomed to flying first class or have owned your own aircraft, you will find that by flying charter, you will give up nothing in terms of service and comfort. The majority of charter jets are owned by companies and high net worth individuals who have exceptionally high standards for quality, and make their aircraft available for charter when they are not using them.
