How Much Time Can You Actually Save Flying on a Private Jet?
Today, time is everyone’s most valuable commodity. This is especially true when it comes to air travel. Whether you are on your way for an exotic holiday, or a critical business meeting, who wouldn’t want to arrive that much sooner? In fact, reducing travel time is one of the main reasons that people elect to fly private over commercial.
The answer is, quite a bit!
There are several reasons why you can save a ton of time traveling on a private jet, not the least of which is you are more in control and can depart and arrive on your own schedule, instead of the airlines’. But, that is only the beginning, there are many other ways that traveling by private jet saves time -- we break them down for you.
More Airport Options
Private jets can fly in and out of many more airports than those served by commercial airlines. In fact, private jets can access about 5000 airports nationwide, which is about 4500 more than commercial jets! That means you can get that much closer to your ultimate destination, which is some cases can shave hours off of your overall trip.
What is the worst thing about traveling on a commercial flight? All of those darn lines! When you fly private there are no security lines, no check-in lines, and no baggage lines. Instead of needing to arrive an hour or two before your scheduled departure time, on a private jet you can arrive only about 15 -20 minutes prior to your scheduled departure, and you can often drive right up to the plane!
Faster Jets -More Direct Flights - Shorter Travel Times
Most private jets tend to be faster and more fuel efficient than their commercial cousins, some flying at speeds of well over 500 MPH, which can cut significant time off of cross-country flights. Of course, unless you would like to create a scheduled stop, or there is a necessary brief refueling stop -- jet charters are almost always direct flights, so there are no connection delays or hassles.
