Gulfstream 5 Private Jet for Charter

Featured Charter

A featured charter is the arrangement of a specific air charter service to a specific destination. Featured charters often include:

  • Hotel accommodations
  • Luxury car rentals
  • Golf and spa packages

Jet charter companies can offer featured charter flights to entice customers with a complete travel package that’s based convenience. By arranging the entire journey (not just the actual air travel component), the charter company takes care of all of the planning. All the client has to do is show up and enjoy the trip.

One-way Charter Flights

Another example of a featured charter is an empty-leg flight. This happens when one leg of a round-trip flight is expected be flown without passengers. In a bid to recover some of the operational costs, the air carrier will promote the empty leg as a featured flight.

Empty leg flights are ideal for private jet travellers looking for a discount on luxury air travel. That’s because the air carrier will offer these charter flights at discounted rates to tempt travellers.

However, there is a tradeoff with this type of featured flight. Because the travel dates and itinerary is predetermined, passengers need to have somewhat flexible travel plans. On the other hand, if it works out, you’ll enjoy the ultimate private jet travel experience at an extremely competitive price.
