Danielle Weston had a big problem. The busy Chicago administrative assistant was under orders to find a flight for her boss and two colleagues, from Chicago to San Francisco – nonstop – departing that evening. Unfortunately for Danielle, she was not given these instructions until 3:30 in the afternoon. As she perused the internet and various airline sites she quickly discovered that meeting these criteria would be impossible, given the time constraints. As she was about to admit defeat and inform her boss of her failure, she noticed an advertisement for private jet charter. She clicked on it and found that getting a flight with charter was not only easy, but fast. After submitting and receiving price approval from her boss, she made the reservations and was able to secure a flight leaving in three hours’ time.
Private Jet Charter – Air Travel for the New Millennium
Stories like Danielle’s are becoming more and more common as commercial airlines attempt to tighten their belts and lower their budgets by reducing both the number or airline personnel and the amount of flights per day – even those to and from popular destinations. The cutbacks have often forced travelers to make flights at inconvenient times or postpone important flights. In addition, airlines have resorted to “bumping” passengers from overbooked and overcrowded flights in order to keep them going on schedule. This practice has become so prevalent with some major airlines that there are entire websites devoted to complaints about it. The private jet charter industry has actually benefited from the way that airlines treat customers, as more and more people seek alternatives to commercial air travel that will accommodate their schedules.
Private Jet Charter – Cost vs. Convenience
Private jet charter, although substantially more expensive than standard air travel, has gained in popularity due to flexibility and convenience. The flight leaves when it is scheduled by the client, at the most opportune time, leaving a charter client free to travel at his or her own pace rather than a rigid schedule dictated by an airline. Security checkpoints, baggage checks, and boarding are also much more streamlined for air charter passengers.
There is no mystery to booking a private jet charter. It can be done online at the touch of a button, similar to using travel websites to book a standard flight. The professional charter brokers at Jetset Charter have had years of experience helping to match fliers with charter operators, and have built up an excellent reputation for service, convenience, and competitive pricing.
