Booking a jet charter service allows you to bask in luxury during your travel, like a vacation before the vacation, or to keep your mind at peace when traveling for business simply.

It’s also a great way for families traveling with young children to help keep them comfortable while on the flight. The same goes if you are traveling with a pet that can quickly become anxious or restless during commercial flying. However, if you have never booked a jet charter service, let this short guide help you step by step.

Determine Which Airport You Want to Fly Out Of

Once you have determined the location you will be traveling to, you can select which airport you want to depart from. You can then begin your research for the best jet charter service in that area, which from then on, will help make planning the rest of your trip much easier.

Contact a Jet Charter Service That Provides Flights to Your Final Destination in Your Chosen Departure Area

When you contact different jet charter services in your chosen area of flight departure, they will help you determine the type or size plane you should charter based on the number of passengers that will be traveling with you, your luggage requirements, and the duration or route of your flight.

For instance, when flying with about eight or more people, it is typically recommended you book a larger jet, also sometimes called a heavy jet, because it is equipped with lots of storage and seating to accommodate your needs. If the flight is long or overnight, it will also include special seating to allow the passengers to relax comfortably en route to their destination.

Ask Questions

When booking a private jet for your trip, it is vital to inquire about the pilot’s experience and safety ratings to ensure they are highly trained to provide a safe and quality ride.

Some services, such as Stratos Jet Charters, also only use Argus-rated jet vendors because it is one of the highest safety ratings for maximum aircraft safety. So be sure to also find out about their plane’s safety rating to help ensure a secure trip. It is also important to inquire about the amenities included with your flight.

You want to also find out about their airline policies, such as if they allow pets, what their rules are for cancellations or changes, and if they sanitize their cabins between flights to help ensure your health while flying.

Schedule Your Flight

Once you have found the jet charter service that you prefer, proceed to schedule your flight so that it is locked in. To do so usually requires you to pick a date for your flight and then sign a contract agreeing to the terms and conditions of the service.

It is also recommended schedule your flight at least a week ahead of time. However, in some cases, you may be able to book it in as little as a few hours or less.

Pay For Your Flight

After you have scheduled your jet, make your payment for your service, which can usually be done in various ways, including a wire transfer.

Once your payment is confirmed, you will then be provided with the details of your flight, including your departure location, the time of your departure, and the aircraft’s identification number, which you will need for boarding the jet.

The Day of Your Flight

On the day of your flight, you will usually make your way to a private terminal, which also includes a lounge area to relax while you wait.

There will also most likely be a free parking place not too far away. Depending on the airport, you may even be allowed to drive right up to the aircraft and receive valet service. A service technician will also load your luggage onto the plane.

Hopefully, this guide on booking a jet charter service has helped you consider doing so for your next trip. And it doesn’t have to be for luxury as it can be just as practical as it is luxurious to enjoy a flight in comfort.
