Frequently Asked Questions

I’m pregnant. Can I hire a private jet?

Yes, though we recommend a consultation with your health care professional before you hire a private jet. Typically, flying by private jet while pregnant is easier and more comfortable than traveling on a commercial airliner.

Here are 2 key considerations if you plan to travel while pregnant: 

1. Health and Safety

Medical opinions vary on the ideal travel time for pregnant travelers. Most commercial airlines allow pregnant women to fly up to 36 weeks of gestation.  The American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists (ACOG) recently published an article on health considerations for pregnant travelers.  Here are their suggestions:

  • Check with your doctor before you book a flight. Though the Internet has great suggestions for pregnant travelers, it cannot replace a professional consultation.
  • Due to the potential risk of turbulence, pregnant travelers should use their seatbelts continuously while seated.
  • Minimize venous thrombosis in your legs by wearing support stockings, and moving around from time to time to help your circulation.

2. Advantages of Private Jet Charter

If you’re pregnant, the ideal way to fly is to hire a private jet. Depending on the aircraft type and destination, Stratos Jet Charters can help pregnant travelers choose a convenient departure time from a smaller nearby airport.  That means less time spent driving to airports and standing in line-ups. The check-in and security processes are also very quick compared to commercial flights. We would be happy to help you with ground transportation, wheelchairs, special meals, or anything else you need to ensure you have a perfect flight.
