Fewer people are travelling by plane since Covid and those that are now see it as more of a luxury than just a couple of years ago. For this reason, there are people who are making the journey part of an overall trip experience and booking something a bit special.

One way to do make the flight as sumptuous as possible is by booking a private jet hire instead of going down the normal route of commercial airlines.

In addition, if you are travelling less but you want to save time and be able to have more control of your times and route, a private plane could be a good solution. Another reason for booking a private jet is that it allows you to head away with a small group of people rather, perhaps for a special occasion, rather than having to find various flights to suit everyone to reach a chosen destination.

If this is something you fancy, this article offers a guide to the most important things to look out for when booking private jets, and the benefits of doing so.

Be sure to visit Fast Private Jet for more information about private jet hires in Europe and other destinations around the world.

How to book a private jet hire in Europe

Private jet hires have made it easy to charter flights quickly and conveniently. For many providers, it can be as simple as putting in your source airport (where you’ll be travelling from), your destination airport (where you’ll be travelling to), your dates and some personal details. 

This will then notify the provider of your interest and they will supply you with a quote. 

Remember that as each flight will be specially chartered just for you and your journey, there are no set times or schedules to stick to. This can be a huge advantage when you want to organise a schedule that works around you and your own specific timings.

For example, if it’s essential that you leave London in order to get to Prague by early afternoon on a Tuesday, many providers will be able to accommodate for that.

Europe is also one of the most well-connected areas of the world in terms of available airports and flight paths. This means that fast, direct and non-stop flights to your destination will often be available to charter, removing any concerns about possible delays or diversions.

The benefits of private jet hires in Europe

As already mentioned, a huge bonus of hiring private jets is the time saved before, during, and after the journey.

When chartering a private jet, processes like passport control, security and baggage collection take significantly less time than commercial flights. In fact, the time saved by flying with a private jet can add up to many hours.

Privacy and comfort are also significant advantages to chartering private jets. As you’ll have the entire plane to yourself, it’ll be up to you to decide how you use the space provided without having to worry about other passengers.

This can be as simple as enjoying the opportunity to have some peace and quiet to get some work done, or inviting friends on board with you to have a small celebration while up in the air.

Many jet charter companies are incredibly willing to accommodate special requests, so be sure to ask if there’s anything specific you’d like on your flight.

Private jet hires in Europe are undoubtedly the most luxurious way to explore the continent, but they needn’t cost an arm and a leg. In fact, they might be more affordable than you might think.
