Charter Flights Gaining Altitude

Like Jolie, Brad, and children growing at $ 35 million property for some rest and relaxation in the South of France, flight charteres can not be astonished with images of wealth, glamor and celebrity. Money is emphasizing the world of private jets and its prestige just adds to the fascination.

Private jets are common in small American airports such as Horseshoe Bend, North Folk Valley, Mackinac Island, and Turners Falls while in the South of France. These are airports close to the plants, warehouses, and facilities of large and small companies. They are researching, producing, and selling products to the needs and desires of the world. Jon M. Boyd, a flight service and marketing director at Westchester County Airport in New York, said, "Businesses with plants in different locations, people have increased their time in visiting a half-dozen plants a day or two instead of a week, they are our backbone, our strength. "More often than not, charter flights are a matter of time. Is the time better invested in a half-dozen employees preparing for a meeting in a jet with every boardroom's amenity at their hands or with employees who remain security, waiting to board the plane, or be stuck in a runway at the mercy of air traffic control? For some, time is the most important commodity.

The industry's industrial industry has had a huge hit in the wake of 9/11. It is also evident in the business of renting jets. Next comes the Great Recession of 2008, with rising fuel prices and environmental release regulations that add to the difficulties. Then came the Big 3 auto company CEOs flying to executive jets in Washington to plead for taxpayer payers.

"That is the nadir," lamented the owner of a small fleet of planes. It's four long years before what used to be the true status symbol got another look. With the growth of airport security lines, increasing tickets, avoiding air routes and delays everywhere, companies began to reconsider chartering. Prices have been cut. Flight sharing opportunities are plentiful. Social networking plans and campaigns are all over Facebook.

"The private jet industry did not return as far back as it was in the late 1990's, but better than where we are," said one analyst. Currently, the charter flight industry is better than three years ago. According to Private Jet Services, a global private aviation consulting firm, the 2015 forecast forecast has catered for the steady growth of the private jet charter market, specifically for business use. The report also notes that commercial flights are trending more seats and more comfortable for passengers. Today, charters with six to 150 seats are available for $ 1,500 to $ 5,000 per hour of operation. Additional costs apply, depending on the type of aircraft, airport locations, and other related fees and options.

What is the most important consideration for all? Unlike 500 U.S. airports available for commercial airlines, more than 5,000 are waiting to serve private airplanes, ensuring that any point of arrival or departure, the airport is always nearby. As an analyst noted after comparing relative cost of commercial vs. flight charter, "The old saying is still true. Time is money."
