27th June 2024

VIP experience on business jet aircraft

Celebrating the most memorable moments in our lives such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and successes in our working lives, often deserve a touch of magic. If you're planning to head away for a destination wedding, a surprise birthday party in a different city, or an anniversary getaway, chartering a private jet can add a touch of luxury and exclusivity to the overall experience. Not to mention some much valued added convenience for all!

Why Choose Private Air Charter for Your Milestone Moments?

Comfort & Luxury

One of the main reasons people opt for private air charter for their celebrations is the luxury and comfort that it offers the travelling party, adding some x-factor! From the moment you leave your house, to arriving at the airport, you are treated to the VIP experience. When it comes to the aircraft itself, private jets are designed with premium lifestyle features in mind. Going way above anything offered aboard standard commercial flights, features include comfortable seating, spacious cabins, and customized options such as gourmet catering and in-flight entertainment.

Flexibility & Convenience

Commercial flights come with rigid schedules, crowded airports, and long queues at security points. Private air charters on the other hand, offer the convenience of flying on your chosen schedule, which you also may change to suit your plans at any time. You can choose the departure time that suits you best and private terminals often mean quicker check-ins and security checks. With such flexibility you can coordinate travel for all of your guests to arrive simultaneously and directly, without the hassle of any layovers or changes along the way.

Access Remote Destinations

Private jets have access to a wider range of airports than commercial airlines. This means you can reach more exclusive and remote destinations, whether it’s a secluded beach for your wedding or a private island for a birthday party. The ability to land closer to your destination can also save significant travel time and enhance the overall experience for you and your guests.

Booking a private jet with charter broker


Celebrating a milestone occasion on a private jet offers an intimate setting where you can enjoy the company of your family, friends, or colleagues and without the prying eyes of strangers. This privacy is also perfect for weddings and honeymoons, where couples can enjoy their special moments undisturbed. For birthdays and anniversaries, it allows for a more personal and unique experience, where you can book in an flight DJ or other entertainment to suit the mood of the milestone.

Customized Experiences

Private air charters can be tailored to your specific tastes and requirements, giving them a distinct advantage over first or business class commercial flights. From creating a bespoke flight itinerary to decorating the cabin according to your celebration theme, charter brokers can help you create a unique experience that’s a one of a kind. Whether you want a specific type of cuisine, in-flight entertainment, or special arrangements, anything and everything can be arranged to ensure your event is unforgettable for all the right reasons.

Benefits of Using an Air Charter Broker

Booking a private jet can be a daunting task, especially if it’s your first time.

This is where charter brokers really add value to the process. Brokers act as intermediaries between you and the aircraft operators, ensuring that you get the best possible service and value for your money. Here are some of the key benefits of using an air charter broker, such as Chapman Freeborn.

Expertise & Knowledge

Charter brokers have extensive knowledge of the private aviation industry. For example, Chapman Freeborn has over 50 years of heritage in the aviation industry and can provide valuable insights into the best aircraft options, routes, and operators available around the world. Brokers’ expertise will ensure that you get the most suitable aircraft for your requirements and budget, whether it’s a small jet for a quick getaway or a larger aircraft for a group celebration.

Aircraft Network & Availability

Air charter brokers have access to a large network of aircraft and aren’t limited to their own fleet as you would be with a private jet airline/operator who are bound to their own aircraft. This means that brokers aren’t wed to a fleet and instead can call upon their network to give you a wide range of options and availability to choose from.

Brokers can also match clients with the right aircraft based on budget, number of passengers, and any other specific requirements outlined.


Planning a special event involves a lot of organization and planning with numerous details with booking a private jet adding a lot of extra things to worry about. That’s why charter brokers handle all the logistics for the flight, from arranging the aircraft and crew to coordinating with the airport and handling any special requests. This allows you to focus on the other aspects of your celebration, safe in the knowledge you have a professional taking care of the aircraft and flight preparation.

Cost Efficiency

While it might seem that booking directly with an operator would be cheaper, brokers often have access to better deals and discounts due to their relationships with multiple operators. This means they can fond different pricing during various seasons and in periods of low and high demand for specific aircraft and brokerage. Brokers can also negotiate on your behalf to ensure you get the best possible rates, making the experience more cost-effective than you might expect.

Personalized Services

Charter brokers provide a high level of personalized service as they work with you one-to-one. Brokers need to qualify and understand your preferences so that every aspect of your flight is tailored to your specifications and making sure that your celebration goes off without a hitch.
