Preferred Vendors

At Stratos, we believe that safety is a derivative of a company’s culture. Through Joel Thomas’s industry leadership and involvement, Stratos has been able to identify and develop close relationships with leading air carriers whose upper-level management consistently demonstrate and display support for safety initiatives. 

We seek out air carriers who make significant financial investments in taking a proactive approach to safety through the implementation of regular safety training and assessments as well as the implementation of a robust SMS Program. 

To ensure our approved vendors are still compliant, we regularly interact and monitor their sales and operations staff to ensure that they exhibit a dedication to safety and professionalism.

Safety in the Skies

In order to be considered a preferred vendor, a vendor must qualify by meeting different criteria. Some of these reasons usually include:

  • Adherence to third party safety programs requiring an on-site auditor
  • Implementation of a robust SMS program through ACSF or ISBAO certification
  • Pilot-in-commands with a minimum of 1,500 hours flying time, with no less than 3,000 hours total
  • Second-in-commands must have at least 1,000 hours of flying time, with no less than 500 hours as captain
  • A safety culture that extends from our offices into the offices and minds of the air carriers we work with
  • A minimum of $25 million insurance for turbo-prop and $50 million for all other aircraft

First Class Luxuries

Typically, jet charter brokers will also require their preferred vendors to provide high quality amenities during their flights. Because they do not own any of the aircraft, the vendors play a large role in building a great relationship with the broker’s clientele.

Determining Charter Plane Prices

When utilizing the services of a jet charter broker, clients often have additional needs to be accommodated. Some of these services may include:

  • Inflight catering
  • Hotel and resort accommodations
  • Rental cars and chauffeured services
  • Private security detail

Each of these additional services can contribute to the cost of the private jet charter flight.
