How far in advance do I have to arrive at the airport?

If you’ve ever flown with a commercial airline before, you know the drill: arrive at the airport a couple of hours early, check in and drop off baggage at the airline booth, shuffle over to the security checkpoint line-up, then wait until it’s your turn to drop off your items on the conveyor belt. Once you’ve made it through all of that, it’s now time to head to your departure gate and wait in a line-up to board the plane. Sometimes, the wait to get onto the aircraft can actually be longer than the flight itself.

When you book a private jet charter, there are no line-ups. Simply arrive at the departure airport roughly 30 minutes prior to your flight. At that time, you’ll pass through check-in and a quick security check before heading directly aboard your waiting aircraft.

Here, you’ll be introduced to the crew and given a quick briefing on what to expect during your flight. Once you’ve been given a quick briefing and tour, have a seat, relax, and enjoy the perks of flying privately.

The Private Jet Charter Advantage

Besides a quick and painless check-in process, there are so many advantages to flying privately. Some of the benefits include:

  • The ability to depart and arrive on your schedule
  • Having access to smaller airports at different destinations
  • Additional concierge services like inflight catering, ground transportation services, and luxury accommodation rentals
