The urge to travel is stronger than ever.  The shelter-in-place order has kept us in our homes, in our communities, in isolation. Travel may be limited, but it is still possible. And the thrill that comes along with finding those places that feed our souls, without risking our health, is a hot commodity these days.

Luckily, Stratos Jet Charters has 14 years of experience flying our clients to out-of-the-way destinations.  When you charter a private plane with Stratos, you can modify your itinerary to avoid major hub airports, and enjoy your getaway in privacy and safety.
