Commercial travel has come a long way. There was a time when this meant getting on a stagecoach and making a long and difficult journey across the country. The trains quickly took over and today they are faster than ever. Thanks to the Wright brothers, at the time, air travel “took off” and we never looked back.
At any given time, there are thousands of people on board thousands of aircraft heading for destinations around the world. Airports are numerous, controls and security are in place and baggage claims are buzzing every day as people commute to and from work for fun and work. Flying to your destination on a commercial airline is a great way to get to where you’re going quickly and work along the way. What is even better for the work traveller? You rent your own business jet.
Some companies already have their own jets and the executive can come and go as it pleases. For others, chartering is the way to go and once they have chartered it, they may never return to the commercial aspect.
One of the advantages of chartering a business jet is that you can set your own schedule. You do not need to arrive at the airport for an international flight several hours before takeoff, you simply have more time to prepare your flight and your trip. Security does not take so long when there are not thousands of people to treat and there is never a risk of lost luggage. Take it on board yourself and store it accordingly.
But perhaps the best advantage of privatization is that you can choose a jet that is specially adapted to your needs. The latest gadgets, information and entertainment systems are on board and many allow you to design the cabin the way you want. If you want to work along the way, you can change the seats for a more pleasant look at work. You just want to relax? You can do it too, in comfortable, oversized chairs that offer more head, shoulder and leg room than you would ever have had on a commercial flight.
Large, small, accessory or not, business jets are a great way to get to your next important meeting outside the city. You arrive well rested, without having wasted a lot of time at the airport and respecting your schedule. What more can you ask your carrier for?
