Commercial travel has come a long way. One upon a time it meant getting into a stagecoach and making a long and arduous trek across the country. Trains soon took over and today they are faster than ever before. Thanks to the Wright Brothers way back when, air travel ‘took flight’ and we have never looked back.
At any given time there are thousands of people on thousands of airplanes going to destinations all over the globe. Airports are plentiful, screening and security are in place and baggage claims are buzzing each and every day as people make their way to and from places for work and pleasure alike. Flying to your destination on a commercial airline is great; you get where you are going fast and can work en route. What is even better for the work traveller? Chartering a business jet of your very own.
Some companies already have their own jets and the executive can come and go as they please. For others, charter is the way to go and once they have chartered, they may never go back to commercial.
One great thing about chartering a business jet is the fact you can make your own schedule. You don’t have to arrive at the airport for an international flight hours before takeoff, you simply have more time to prepare for your flight and your trip. Security doesn’t take as long when there aren’t thousands of people to process and there can never be the worry of lost baggage. Take it on board yourself, and stow it accordingly.
But perhaps the best perk of going private is the fact you can choose a jet specifically for your needs. The latest gadgets, information and entertainment systems are on board and many allow you to design the cabin in any way that you wish. If you want to work en route, you can switch the seating to a more work friendly look. Just want to relax? You can do that too, in oversized comfortable chairs that offer more head, shoulder and leg room than you’d ever enjoy on a commercial flight.
Large, small, prop or not, business jets are a great way to get to your next important out of town meeting. You arrive well rested, without having wasted a lot of time at an airport and have had your schedule adhered to your way. What more could you ask from your transportation?
