For those who have never travelled by private jet before, the private aviation industry can seem like a world of luxury in a separate tier of its own. However, as more and more people choose to travel by this mode of transport, this luxury world is slowly opening its doors to all keen travellers.
Here’s a glimpse into the luxury world of private jets.
The allure of exclusivity
The private aviation industry has an allure of exclusivity that cannot be matched by commercial airlines. With dedicated terminals just for private jets, having your very own runway means the plane only has to wait on your schedule.
Another reason many are looking to book a private jet flight is the personalised service that comes on a private aircraft. Bespoke service is at the heart of private jet travel. This means everything from handcrafted gourmet meals prepared to your dietary requirements and curated entertainment options to suit your TV and film taste.
Sleek interiors and amenities
There is no squished seating or tattered carpets in private aviation. When designing their jets, private airlines spend time making sure the materials used for their interiors pass rigorous safety standards – before making sure guests will be of the utmost comfort during their flight.
But these sleek interiors aren’t the only difference between commercial and private planes. Many private jets have extra amenities that you simply wouldn’t find anywhere else; built-in libraries have been crafted into many private jets, offering guests the chance to lose themselves in travel adventures, poetry stanzas and murder mystery stories for the duration of their journey.
Sky high hospitality
As the only priority guest on a private charter, the staff are there to cater to your every need when it comes to food and drink. However, many private jets also provide exclusive wine and fine-dining experiences for their guests, that they can’t get anywhere else. This might be a wine-tasting course or even a meal cooked by the most sought-after private chefs who are keen to try their Michelin-star culinary skills in a different type of kitchen.
Speed, comfort, and convenience
It’s fair to say private jet travel offers an unparalleled level of convenience to other modes of transport. Passengers travelling by private jet can bypass long queues, enjoy personalised check-ins and travel according to their own personal itinerary.
Being able to land at smaller airports that only accept private jets on their runways means you can also access more destinations – like remote island hotspots – than those with commercial airlines. This further enhances the convenience factor of the private aviation experience, allowing travellers to experience remote destinations, without having to endure tedious layovers and connecting flights.
The next time you’re planning to travel abroad, why not consider getting there by private jet? After all, once you’ve had a glimpse into the luxury world of private aviation, it’s hard to go back.
