Top 5 Benefits Advantages and Disadvantages of Airplane Charter Services

The benefits of chartering an airplane far outweigh any cons in the majority of cases. Some people will argue that it’s expensive, or excessive, or unnecessary. But I hope that the information and ideas suggested in this article show you why, in fact, it is very necessary!

The benefits of chartering an airplane include things such as privacy, security, comfort and flexibility. Let’s look at a few of those a little more closely.


There are no screaming children, coughing and hacking neighbors, overtly happy people heading off on holiday with their friends and all talking too loudly. No scrambling to your seat and getting up and down for others if you are unlucky enough to end up with an aisle seat, no old lady next to you hogging your elbow room.

But more importantly for business users or others who want to have an uninterrupted conversation without fearing of being overheard, you are free to discuss business or knock about a few ideas with your significant other with no embarrassing repercussions.

Sensitive business can be discussed with no fear of leaks or competitors overhearing and no fears of sensitive corporate information being heard by all and sundry. In some industries – this is a serious consideration that can make travel time a complete waste of time as far as working goes.


Luxury Private charter

Private air charter can be the epitome of luxury and class. Think of commercial air flights as being a run of the mill taxi cab, and a private charter jet as a plush stretch limo. Some are even more luxurious than a limo! Believe it or not (and it does take some believing, I grant you!) but it is quite possible to find things such as living suites, gyms, spa’s and sauna’s, full double bedrooms and other things that the ‘filthy’ rich like to spoil themselves with being built into private jets more and more every day.

Granted, they have to be built into the larger jets as opposed to the small to mid size airplanes but to some – buying a 747 and kitting it out to their specification is not a problem at all.

Have to say – I’m unlikely to ever see one of those from the inside, can’t quite stretch to renting one of those jets.


Not only can you avoid border hassles when flying internationally, you can generally charter a private jet with very little notice. It’s not unknown for jets to be available to rent in an hour. (Special cases here mark you – don’t bank on this speed of response as being the norm or the doable in every case!)

Private airplane charter services do not tend to own a whole fleet – they, like everyone else, arrange a jet for you from ‘A N Other’ company or owner. They work as the middle man between you and the owner, taking care of your arrangements and requirements. They give you flexibility that you do not normally have when it comes to renting a plane.

This is part of the beauty of flying a private charter – it can free you from dependence on travel agencies and commercial air companies.

Not to mention you get to avoid those long, long and nasty lines for boarding, and those little extras we have to endure now, things like taking off your shoes and having your bags extensively searched and not being able to take bottle of drink through security. (I’m seriously miffed at that one – how much % mark up did the shops on the other side of security add to the price when THAT rule came into play!?) Flying private can free you from all of those little inconveniences.

Hell, wander onto your charter plane with a Jack Daniels and coke in your hand and see if anyone says anything – apart from suggesting you put it down whilst trying to put your seatbelt on!


Flying private isn’t just about reaching your destination. It is also primarily about enjoying your traveling experience, and being comfortable on the journey. I’ll make you a promise right here and now – the first time you bite the bullet and decide to charter a private flight will be an unforgettable trip for you, something that you will both think back on with great memories as well as talk about often! It just makes traveling fun again!

One on One service, comfy seats with leg, knee and elbow room, quiet and calm environment and no waiting for whatever you want (apart from the preparation time that is!). Sheer comfort and luxury.


Another of the great benefits to chartering an airplane is the impression you can make on others.

Not only can you impress clients, you can also pamper employees and give them incentive to work all the harder for you. You can highlight yourself as being different to clients, and build closer relationships by inviting them on a private charted business trip overseas with you.

It is just an all around excellent way to travel, and given the choice why would you want to fly in that commercial taxi when you can fly in that luxurious limo instead?

Advantages and Disadvantages of Airplane Charter Services

Airplane Charter Services

Flying services are becoming more and more common, and they are no longer something that only the very upper crust can hire and use. The aviation market has become highly competitive, and some say that some of the companies are running in a loss, and many of these companies have turned to the common person, allowing them to hire their services in a very simple manner.

This has turned out to be a boon for small and big businesses and – even the tourists, as they can have enhance their travelling experience at a fractional increase in their cost. While many companies freely acknowledge that they do not mind the airfare that they pay to ferry their clientele and resources all over the world, many smaller businesses debate about whether the cost of hiring aircraft is worth it. Here is a brief list of the advantages and disadvantages of hiring an airplane charter service.

The first advantage is that you cut down the travelling time to just a few hours. Trips that would earlier take two or three days now would take only a few hours. Hiring planes is a private affair, and are perfect for people who wish to have privacy even during they travel. The comfort that hiring a private plane gives you will be unmatchable by any of the other travel options that you will go in.

By chartering an airplane, you can even cut through the issues like which routes to take, stopovers, etc. Once you charter an airplane, you can direct the airplane anywhere in the world, as long as it is a legal route, you have the required permissions, you have the right resources flying the plane and there is a landing strip available. This is the main reason that many companies prefer chartering planes, as they can then manage the schedule of their employees in a simpler manner.

There are some disadvantages of hiring an aircraft for travelling purposes too. For one, the prices are exponentially higher than taking a train ticket or travelling by road. The prices are not just of the aircraft booked, but also of the hosts, the pilots, the navigators, and everything and everyone who would be necessary to run the aircraft.

Secondly, when one hires an aircraft, they have increased responsibility on their shoulders. Right from which route to take to the various licences and approvals, the customer has to ensure that all of them are in place.

These are some of the advantages and disadvantages of hiring aircraft to travel from one place to another. Aircraft handling is much more complicated than handling a vehicle, so one should be careful about which service they are going for.

There are a few service providers, and the best way to contact them would be via the Internet, as not many of these have a local presence. Most of these services have websites, which provide you the necessary information required, right from their tariff to the services that they offer.
