Props and small jets, like the Citation Mustang and King Air 200 are perfect for those on a smaller budget, and are flying a short distance. And if you’re looking to book for a longer trip or flying with more people, a midsize or long range jet may be the right option for you. If you’re looking for all our luxury we suggest Long range and heavy jets like the Gulfstream G550, Legacy 600 and Embraer Lineage.

Over 50% of our clients book and fly within a week, while the rest tend to book at least two weeks to a month in advance.

4) Take Advantage of Smaller Airports

One of the major advantages of a private jet charter flight is the ability to use smaller airports – saving you masses of time and hassle.
Not only will you have to deal with crowds, queues or busy roads getting to or from the airport, but they are often closer to where you want to go – saving you time once you land as well.
Plus, by flying via a private jet charter flight, the route and schedule is directed by you – which means if you want to fly between two airports that aren’t connected directly by a commercial flight, you can! No need to stop over or change aircraft, fly directly to where you want to go with a private jet charter flight from Private Travel Services.
