Private Jet vs Commercial Airline: Why There Really Is No Comparison
WHETHER IT’S FOR BUSINESS OR PLEASURE, air travel doesn’t have to be stressful. Yet, if you’ve ever only flown on commercial airlines—even in first or business class—that’s often the case. When it comes to hassle-free flying, nothing can top the decadence and convenience of private jet charters. It’s almost unfair to compare the two, even though they provide a similar service—essentially, they get you from Point A to Point B. But it’s like comparing a ride on a crowded city bus with a ride in the back of a stretch limo. The experience of using a jet charter—from the time you arrive at the airport to the time you’re whisked away in private transportation from the tarmac to your final destination—is so much more peaceful and enjoyable. Here are a few reasons why:
Avoid Airport Angst
By hiring a private jet, you automatically get to bypass the ordeal of life at the airport. That includes:
- Having to arrive hours in advance of your departure time
- Trudging around the airport in search of your check-in counter and departure gate
- Worrying about luggage allowances and other restrictions
- Standing in line for check-in and security clearance procedures
- Waiting around a luggage carousel hoping your bags arrive in one piece
With a private jet through Stratos Jet Charters, you can book a same-day flight—sometimes with as little as four hour’s notice—and quickly be on your way. Check-in and security procedures are a breeze, meaning you can arrive at the airport shortly before your departure.
Eliminate In-Flight Disruptions
Commercial airlines are understandably encumbered by many safety regulations to ensure the well being of their passengers. While these safeguards serve an important purpose, they result in constant in-flight inconveniences that are disruptive to your in-flight experience. While Stratos Jet Charters also observes all FAA and DOT safety regulations—as evidenced by more than a decade in operation without a single incident—we go about it quickly and effectively, allowing you to conduct a business meeting at 40,000 feet or marvel at the cloud formations with your family.

Unsurpassed Itinerary Flexibility
Commercial airlines have access to roughly 300 airports worldwide. That’s a fair number, but when you consider jet charters have more than 7,000 runways at their disposal, it offers the client so much more in terms of flexibility. This is why Stratos Jet Charters can create flight itineraries around your schedule, rather than the airline’s.

- Greater chance of avoiding scheduling delays and flight cancellations
- Single point of contact to streamline travel planning
