Can Private Jet Charters Ever Be a Realistic Option for Small Business?

When you think of private jets, you typically associate them with the rich and famous. However, did you know that private chartered flights have become much more affordable in recent years? This has led to a boom in the number of businesses choosing to travel by private jet over commercial flights. But can private jets ever be a realistic option for smaller businesses?

Why private smaller airlines are making private jets more affordable

While you’ll still come across companies charging thousands of pounds an hour for private jet charters, there are more affordable options out there. In recent years there’s been an increase in the number of start-up, smaller airlines which offer extremely competitive prices.

Some companies even offer flat-fee monthly services within specific regions. The amount you could save when flying locally is pretty impressive if you shop around. Small businesses have started to look to companies like Vistajet International Limited for cheap, private jet charters to help them appear more professional and elite.

The cost of flying by private jet also tends to be cheaper during the week. This is ideal for businesses as their employees will largely need to travel during the week to meetings and business themed events.

Private jets could be just as expensive as first-class travel

If you’ve been paying first-class for your employees to travel to business meetings, switching to private jet wouldn’t necessarily work out more expensive. Many companies offer the same costs for private jet charters, as commercial first-class flights.

So, with that in mind you can see why private jet charters are a realistic option for small businesses. What’s more, private jets offer many more benefits that you simply can’t get on a commercial flight.

Your employees will be able to work together on the flight, without the distraction of other passengers. They will also be able to travel directly to smaller airports that larger commercial airlines don’t go to. So, wherever they need to be, your employees will get there in record time. Then there’s the fact your company will develop a more prestigious reputation if it uses a private jet service.

Overall, there was a time that private jet charters were a luxury that few could afford. However, now they’re proving to be a very realistic and beneficial option for small business travel.
