Practical, fast, and comfortable – these words describe the popular way to fly for exclusive national and international travelers. With just a call, you can specify the aircraft type and destination, and within hours you can have a private plane on a runway, ready to carry passengers within or outside the country.
Those awkward lines to check-in and dragging your luggage around the airport are no longer necessary thanks to service companies such as ours that allow for easy private jet charter. But beyond the obvious reasons of wanting to avoid airports for senior executives worldwide, chartering a private plane or charter flight has become an option that helps them save money and especially time.
“If a manager needs to review three factories in one day on a commercial airline, it would be impossible to do so due to stop, controls, and other delays. The question is, how much is their time worth? On a private flight, for example, they can accomplish video-conferences and boardroom meetings, which means that the time for productivity is not lost.” This is what Isaac Grimberg explains, CEO of Privé Jets – a service company for private flights with global coverage.
Exclusivity and Comfort
Today’s market offers a wide range of options to please different customers and their tastes. In the case of Privé Jets – which has at its disposal a fleet of approximately 6,000 aircraft – you may find a large variety of aircraft, categorized by size, capacity, facilities and services. The most “economic” turn out to be the Light Jets, which can carry six to eight passengers, and the cost per flight hour is between $2,200 and $3,000 – depending on the specifications of each and their destination. These light aircraft can maintain flight for up to 4 hours and can have large cabins and lavatory.
For clients looking for that extra luxury and personal style, Mid Size jets can accommodate six to nine people and have larger cabin space and lavatory. These can maintain flight for up to six hours and the cost per hour ranges from $2,800 to $3,800. Super Mid Size Jets, have a capacity of sex to ten passengers, and some offer additional services, such as flight attendants. Some include special beds for passengers which can be beneficial for passengers that suffer jet lag or weariness. Super Mid Size Jets can vary between $3,800 and $5,000 per hour of flight. Heavy jets are considered to be the most practical of the aircraft because they can cary up to 16 passengers, have beds, flight attendants on board, lavatory, and can fly up to 13 hours.
Finally, the Airliners – an aircraft that can seat more than 16 passengers, with VIP configuration and all the amenities a traveler can hope for: living room, beds, office, and even showers. It can be viewed as a small apartment in air, ideal for executives who must continue to work while going from one continent to another. Flight time exceeds 14 hours and the cost can vary between $10,000 and $14,000 per hour of flight.
The New Era
In Colombia, while use of private aircraft is still regarded as a luxury-aspect that differentiates entirely in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Spain, and even Mexico – for Isaac Grimberg it is fundamentally essential to note that the more new-generation planes there are available in the market, the more people will use them. As time passes, executives, corporations, and travelers will understand the practical use, convenience, comfort, safety, and more.
