Say Aloha to Hawaiian Culture

Every year, the city of Oahu hosts a celebration of the Hawaiian Islands. In 1956, this event began as Aloha Week. But as the event grew and it became more popular, the event organizers changed the name of the event to Aloha Festivals in 1991.

Since then, thousands of volunteers work together to stage events that are enjoyed by more than 100,000 people each year.  This community-supported event honors and celebrates Hawaii’s music, dance, and unique traditions.

I had 15 piece band booked on a commercial airline that got cancelled due to weather. Every single flight for the next 2 days was sold out and the band was going to miss their performance. Thank to the Herculean efforts from Glenn and Joel, we were able to secure a flight for the following morning and get the band to Florida on time. Glenn was simply amazing with his follow-through, availability when I needed him and keeping an eye on everything. He was with me from the first phone call at 6:30pm until take-off the next morning at 10:10am. Thank you Stratos for saving the day!

5 1 5 01/01/2018

I thought Stratos was professional and easy to work with. We didn't have any problems or communication issues whatsoever. It's really nice when we don't have to deal with 10 different people to coordinate a trip.

5 1 5 03/12/2014

Outstanding service.  Appreciate all the aircraft options

5 1 5 06/22/2020

Nice, easy and prompt communication. Pleasure working with your team

5 1 5 09/22/2021

Especially impressed that you were able to find us a rental car when there were none available in the entire area. You guys are wizards. The flight was comfortable and the pilots competent and professional. Thank you for helping us make this trip happen.

5 1 5 05/27/2014

lower cost flights :)

Joel Thomas and his great team at Stratos makes booking a private charter easy. They keep in contact with you from the start right through to after the flight, which gives my travelers a piece of mind. Everything is always exactly planned to our specifications. Stratos really goes above and beyond in their industry - they are simply the best at what they do.

5 1 5 06/22/2020

Excellent service from the first point of contact to disembarking from the flight. Kyle was amazing to deal with in the booking phase and the execution of the flight was flawless. Great pilots, equipment, handling, all on time. Highly recommended.

5 1 5 11/28/2019

Joel and his team fire on all cylinders at all times. Every detail of the trip is always handled and communication is very proactive. We have special requests all of the time from exact wheels up times to ground transport changes and the team handles our trip with ease. I cannot recommend the Stratos Team enough and the value you get far exceeds our past charter and membership experiences. Thank you again Stratos Team

5 1 5 04/22/2021

Stratos Jets provided excellent customer service! One of the most reliable private jet charters. Glenn was incredibly helpful and professional he made the booking process very easy and kept me updated with trip details daily. Highly recommend Stratos Jet Charters.

5 1 5 10/28/2015

Stratos continues to exceed my expectations!

5 1 5 10/14/2021

Excellent experience with booking, the flights, ground services, etc.

5 1 5 07/14/2020

All members of the team communicated extremely well. I worked with Steve to get my flight booked and he checked in with helpful texts and updates along the way. Highly recommend.

5 1 5 11/21/2023

Dear Joel  We had an excellent flight, start to finish! Glad you told me how good that choice would be. Pilot quite impressively; flew at 40,000 feet all the way, zero turbulence. Best plane I have charted.  Happy Thanksgiving to you and family, Al

5 1 5 09/25/2017

It was great working with Joel he was involved from beginning to end in every aspect of the trip.  We look forward to many trips together. Thank you.

5 1 5 06/27/2023

We did have a slight issue when the plane came in there was a mechanical concern that delayed my parent's trip but Kyle lined up aother plane for us so they could get to their destination with the least amount of inconvenience. The catering was delicious and the flight back went off without a hitch.

5 1 5 04/24/2020

My client was very pleased with the ease of this transaction. Kyle Jones was a pleasure to work with, very respondent and always professional. I hope to broker more charter clients to you in the future. Thank you again!

5 1 5 03/13/2024

This was probably the 3rd flight that the weather conditions were disregarded and I was told the flight was safe and would be comfortable. While we did land safely, the known turbulence was so intense I left my seat at one point, was thrown from side to side (no vomit bags around) and I was needing to do every breathing technique known to keep myself calm and not hyperventilate. While the crew and all people involved are extremely professional, disregarding weather reports with a strong wind advisory is irresponsible not only for safety but for the customers comfort. I learned upon landing that other flights in that same airport had cancelled so why would mine fly even with the concern I expressed. Will the company lose money to reschedule? I will find it difficult to trust them in the future on any flight with weather advisories.

5 1 5 04/14/2019

They were the only ones able to book our last minute flight to the Masters. We decided to go Saturday night and they made it happen Including arranging ground transport and picking up our tickets for us. Thank You!!

5 1 5 10/30/2017

The Stratos team was very easy to work with, made the entire process quick and easy. Pleasure to work with.

5 1 5 04/14/2014

5 1 5 11/05/2021

Outstanding service throughout entire process. Able to meet requirements quickly Professional service provided while maintaining a personal touch

5 1 5 03/04/2016

We were thoroughly impressed with all aspects of these operations. If at all possible, a method to protect the identity of passengers might be developed (whereby TSA rules are still met). If such a method already exists, my clients would appreciate knowing the details.

5 1 5 12/09/2016

Our passengers wish to extend a sincere thanks to your staff. We however advise that you do not have permission to use Michael's name in their advertising or promotional material as to be endorsing your product. Thank you again. We look forward to working with you again in the near future.

Zach Rankin is the best jet broker I have ever met! Total first class experience. Super responsive & passionate & customer service oriented. I’m in real estate hospitality....hotels & apartments etc. So I understand how hard it is to execute flawless high-end customer service like Zach.

5 1 5 04/29/2024

Everything went off smoothly and everyone I worked with at Stratos was very patient and helpful. Our small group felt very special! What a treat and yes I’d recommend Stratos to anyone.

5 1 5 08/23/2020

It was a treat to fly private again. Everyone at Stratos and Flying Labz were a joy! If I need to fly private again Stratos is the only company I'd reach out to.

Its always a pleasure working with Stratos Jets. I work with Joel and Kerry a majority of the time and my experiences have been great.

5 1 5 05/01/2020

I have already recommended Joel to two people and they are both using him!!! I gave Joel only two hours to find us a plane.For medical reasons, we had to go to Houston....In two hours, I had three options...he is wonderful!

5 1 5 03/31/2019

As always great coordination. I was not on the flight but rather my family and Stratos arranged everything. Even with a winter storm, my wife being delayed, De-icing and two sick kids on-board, Stratos updated me while I was over seas and I knew everything was handled without any issues. The pilots we super kind and accommodating and it made for a wonderful trip. All ground transport, catering and logistics went flawlessly and the Stratos team even arranged my ground transport meeting them from a commercial flight. I cant say enough about the team and their personal pride and care for my family. Thank you again!

5 1 5 05/07/2022

Great flight, always professional and nice aircraft!

5 1 5 05/03/2021

Randy was so helpful during my scheduling of this trip and kept me informed. I will recommend Randy to all of our associates. Thank you for your service

5 1 5 03/23/2020

Glenn was excellent to work with. I spoke with several charter companies before choosing Stratos. Glenn is the reason I chose Stratos Jet to bring my elderly parents home during the initial break of the COVID-19. He was professional, knowledgeable and on top of every detail. This was our first experience with a charter flight and Glenn explained the entire process from start to finish which helped me keep my anxiety in check. My parents flew from Florida to Ohio without any issues. They said the aircraft crew were professional and confident and made them feel safe. The plane was basic, cabin was small so it was a little challenging for older people with limited mobility. My parents are short, 5'4 and 5'1 and both had to duck down to get on and off the plane and while inside the cabin. That being said, we were given the option of a more luxurious cabin but chose not to spend the extra money. Stratos took care of getting my elderly parents home quickly, safely and allowed us to minimize the risks of commercial flying at this time.

5 1 5 07/22/2021

As a repeat customer of Stratos we have always been treated with care and understanding of the circumstances surrounding our travel needs. When Joel was unavailable Zach jumped right in without missing a beat.

5 1 5 10/31/2022

Everything was great with the trip; it was a bit rushed on my part and Danny was a rockstar! He gave me many options and honest and frank feedback and advice. He made me feel like I was the only client he had and was incredibly responsive to all my questions and concerns. Stress-free and relaxing is the best way to summarize my experience. I will always use Stratos and Danny!! thank you to all the team as well!

5 1 5 03/14/2017

Joel I do not use google sign in re survey Let me simply say Ms Hill was outstanding every step of the way as was the service at Dolphin Sun night Thank you Jim W. Charter flight Omaha to Sarasota Mar 12

Stratos arranged a private jet to Toronto for me last minute. Everything went well and the Challenger 300 was very nice. Thank you

5 1 5 03/01/2018

Joel was great to arrange a flight for us last minute. He kept me updated through the process/flights. We would love to work with Stratos again.

  • How do I choose the right aircraft for my mission?

    dropdown dropdown

    As charter brokers, we do more than simply book your charter flight. At Stratos Jets, our air charter associates are highly trained personnel capable of matching our clients with the appropriate aircraft for their travel needs. Once we determine how many passengers you’re travelling with and how far you’re flying, we can determine which category of aircraft you require. There are many options available. The most common aircrafts hired for private charters include:

    • Cessna’s Citation X
    • Gulfstream’s G650
    • Bombardier’s Global line

    After that, we can help you narrow down the selection of recommended aircraft based on budget, desired cabin amenities, airport requirements, luggage capacity, as well as aircraft age and performance capabilities.

    Staying Safe in the Skies

    At Stratos Jets, air charter safety is our number one concern. One of our key policies is to increase consumer education. This ensures our clients are able to make informed decisions. We also work with our aircraft providers to ensure their safety training programs meet and even exceed our air charter safety requirements. To make this happen, Stratos Jets is an ARGUS Certified Broker. This means that our brokerage firm is:

    • Committed to the best industry practices
    • Adhering to all applicable safety regulations
    • Maintaining the appropriate insurance coverage required
  • Are there additional costs per private jet rental passenger?

    dropdown dropdown

    There are no additional costs per passenger. At Stratos Jet Charters, we base our private jet rental prices per hour, not per guest.

    The Stratos Pricing Estimator

    If you would like to estimate the cost of a private jet charter, use our Stratos pricing estimator page. It lists the most common estimates based on destination and aircraft type. And you can always enter customized data to get an estimate for a specific destination.

    Additional Concierge Charges

    We do charge for some of our additional concierge services, such as in-flight catering and entertainment, hotel bookings and ground transportation. We know our clients’ time is precious, so we offer the value and convenience of “one-stop-shopping” through our Trip Support team. When you book a flight with Stratos Jet Charters, we can take care of all the logistics, including booking hotels, meeting spaces, limousines and tickets to special events. That way you can relax, and enjoy your trip.

    Empty Leg Charters

    Also, since we charge per hour, not per passenger, there are travel bargains to be found with our Empty Leg Flights. Many of our private jet rental flights are one-way, and then we need to move the aircraft to a new destination. To reduce the costs of flying an empty aircraft, we offer discounts to travelers with flexible itineraries. Clever passengers will sometimes split the cost with their fellow travelers, thereby reducing the cost for everyone on the flight.  

  • Can I make last-minute changes to my itinerary?

    dropdown dropdown

    If your plans need to change, we will do everything in our power to accommodate the changes. One of the benefits of hiring Stratos Jet Charters is that we have much more flexibility than commercial airlines and can provide many more air charter services.

    We have two teams that can help you. Here is a brief description of each:

    Charter Sales Agents 

    This is the initial contact team. They evaluate your travel needs to identify the appropriate aircraft type for your travel plan. Pricing is determined by aircraft availability, its position related to the intended departure location and the position of where the aircraft needs to be after performing the customer’s flight.   

    Trip Support Team

    Once the aircraft has been selected, Trip Support works with the customer, the air carrier and all concierge service providers to organize all of the travel details. Trip Support is responsible for coordinating:

    • Departure time
    • Departure and arrival at the Fixed Base departure location
    • Ensuring assigned crew members meet Stratos experience requirements
    • Making sure the insurance is current and everyone is protected
    • Coordinating all concierge services

    In reference to last-minute itinerary changes, any changes would go through the Trip Support Team.

    Our customers often have demanding flight itineraries that can change quickly. They’ve come to appreciate knowing there’s an entire team of people focused on organizing all the details of their trip. Stratos Jet Charters wants to provide our clients with consistently outstanding air charter service and an impeccable safety record.
