Why you should choose private chartering over jet ownership for your business aviation needs

jet ownership

Optimising your time and money is critical to an efficient business enterprise, and travelling by private jet saves on both these things. There are two options to secure your luxury private travel; buying your own jet or chartering through a broker. What do each of these options look like when it comes to business aviation?

 

Cost

Purchasing a private jet is a significant expense, probably the most expensive decision you will ever make. It also requires you to know exactly which jet to choose. Chartering a private jet, however, is a more cost-effective option than buying your own plane for several reasons. If you choose jet ownership you have pay for the upkeep, insurance and staff, so chartering a jet can save your bank balance and your time. Choosing an expert charter broker puts the task in the hands of people who know the industry best and will pick the option that fits your exact requirements, ensuring you pay for what you need and nothing more.

 

Time

Jet ownership is time consuming from the get go. After you’ve waited a year or longer for your jet to be built and delivered, annual maintenance issues can mean it is grounded for a large part of each year. When chartering a jet you can travel almost immediately, even on the same day you make your enquiry.

 

Recovery

In the unfortunate event that your own aircraft is grounded due to maintenance issues just when you need to be at your business meeting, you may find yourself stuck. When chartering a jet everything is taken care of, with brokers coordinating every element of the journey even when the unexpected happens, avoiding disruption to your business endeavours.

 

Depreciation

Just as when you buy a car, once you’ve bought a private jet the value decreases. If you charter a jet you don’t have to worry about owning a depreciating asset.

 

Management

Managing a private jet is time consuming and expensive. When owning a jet, it’s your responsibility to ensure all your on board services are taken care of, such as staffing, catering and entertainment. Additionally, many private jet owners take advantage of empty leg flight options, but this incurs management costs, time and energy. If you charter a private jet you can relax on your travels without the weight of these responsibilities.

 

Versatility

Choosing an expensive private jet to purchase is a difficult decision, with myriad sizes, speeds and models to choose from. Which is perfect for you and your business?  Private jet charter provides you with the expert knowledge from a dedicated team  brokers who are there to advise and assist you every step of the way. You are also free to choose a different aircraft every time you fly, allowing room for flexibility based on your requirements on a journey-by-journey basis.. It also means  you have the flexibility to jet set from the airport of your choosing each and every time, rather than having to take off from where your aircraft is always housed.
