The Way to the Australian Open

It’s a long haul to get there from North America and Europe, but travelling on a private charter service is a terrific option for those who want to arrive fresh and relaxed to take in the action courtside.

Flying on a charter service to watch the action live is always exciting. The athletes sometimes battle the heat as much as they compete against one another. Thankfully, Rod Laver Arena, the main court that seats 15,000, has a retractable roof in case of extreme weather. The Australian Open is one of the most well-attended tournaments on the ATP circuit, and Stratos Jets will make sure the voyage is a comfortable one by booking a luxury charter service for you and your group.

Private jet airports in Melbourne

Of the three airports that service the city, Melbourne International (YMML) is by far the busiest. For travelers using a charter service, Melbourne Essendon (YMEN) is a convenient option because it’s less hectic and closer to the city center. Melbourne Moorabbin (YMMB) could be useful for people staying on the south end of the city.

Daniel was very responsive late into the night and early morning and was able to arrange our flight in hours. Time from first contact to wheels up was less than 12 hours. The FBO's and crew provides were very accommodating and helpful. 5 stars!

5 1 5 12/21/2021

Zach and Leslie were very responsive and easy to work with.

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Yes to all.

Stratos offers the best overall value you can get for private air charter PERIOD. I have done tons of research and cost models and there is no better value. Joel and his team do all of the hard work for you. My family tried Wheels Up, local charter companies and App Based Deadhead charter and they were all really disappointing. All of these option look good but when you compare cost per hour, schedule flexibility and booking Stratos is always a better cost and value proposition. The equipment is always great (this trip was a Citation X with a beautiful brand new interior and every feature possible) and Stratos works around your schedule and exact needs. We have made all types of requests due to my young family and the Stratos staff and cabin crews are always so helpful and accommodating. They never have over sold us and always are sensitive to every need. Most importantly Joel only will put us with great operators. We were in and out of Aspen and safety was the number one concern and he always covers all aspects of the trip but safety first. Again, I can’t say enough about the Stratos experience and team.

5 1 5 11/09/2021

The service, follow up, and support was fantastic. Stratos made our family trip a success and we were all able to be together without the hassles of traveling. I would definitely recommend them! Thanks!

5 1 5 08/20/2017

Joel was all over booking our Jet and catering to our every need. He was easy to reach at all times and made arrangements that you would normally have to ask for, just as part of his routine business. He runs Stratos with elite service and I will be a life long customer!

5 1 5 11/06/2023

Once again the whole experience was great from start to finish. I felt well taken care of.

5 1 5 10/15/2021

Top notch experience, pilot was amazing, plane was great, service was phenomenal. No complaints at all.

5 1 5 09/30/2014

Professionalism and attention to detail come to mind when working with Stratos Jet Charters, Inc. From initial engagement to the jets to take off - they didn't miss a beat. My Employer is extremely concerned with privacy and professionalism and Stratos Jet Charters did not disappoint.

5 1 5 10/31/2022

Good communication between Stratos and me regarding the jet being on site on ready for departure. Plenty of advance notice with the updates. This made my planning much easier.

5 1 5 02/24/2021

Everyone was great, from Steve who got us started, to the flight support team, and to the crew. Everything went smoothly and I'd highly recommend Stratos to anyone looking to charter a flight.

5 1 5 01/09/2019

This flight was well managed with excellent communication with Joel. We had extreme weather conditions in OAK and Joel was open to correspondence past midnight local time to ensure all was not handled and decided morning of flight. We also appreciate Stratos Jets trust and confidence in following the lead of Axis Jet for moving their clients flight to the next day. We are looking forward to having many more successful flights with Stratos Jets.

5 1 5 10/24/2023

Cannot recommend Stratos strongly enough. Our pilots were superb. They dropped us into 07FA onto a wet runway that a lot of pilots would have diverted for but the new grooved runway and pilot skill had us safely on the ground and taxiing after using way less than half the runway. The Citation Sovereign was in tip top condition. We will definitely use Stratos again.

5 1 5 06/03/2020

My representative Simon did a really good job explaining my options and arranging our charter. Disappointed our charter Was 30 minutes late due to routine maintenance. Since it was routine, obviously it should have been scheduled to not interfere with our flight schedule. One of the big reason for the charter was to avoid sitting around a lounge in the Covid era. Due to the delay, that’s exactly what we did. Small issues, but water wasn’t working in lavatory, cabin temperature was a bit erratic, and air vent dripped water. Crew was courteous and flight was fine.

 

--------------------------

Dear Peter, 
 
Thank you for taking time to provide feedback regarding your recent flight on N860TX.  After receiving your review, I investigated the matter to learn a bit more about what was going on.  
 
During the pre-flight check, the crew discovered a maintenance issue that, while minor, needed to be resolved prior to your departure.   Unfortunately, resulting in a delay in your schedule.  We understand that the value of private aviation is oriented around your schedule and privacy, but we can not prioritize that over safety.  In the case of the delay, it is a result of the crews concern for safety of flight.  Regardless, our team values your feedback and have shared it with the air carrier as well.  
 
We look forward to working with you again on your next trip and will seek to ensure a smoother travel experience.
 
All my best,


Joel A. Thomas 

President and CEO

I like the new summary sheets you are sending, information is the key and they work. Have always loved running for you guy, you make it easy. Thank you for all you do and it is our goal to keep the relationship growing. Thanks Team! Jim

5 1 5 12/03/2017

I understand we have great alternative option for the operation of our company aircraft at this time. Our (company name removed for privacy) Japan President was very glad to use charter aircraft. Thank you 

5 1 5 01/01/2022

Great customer service!

5 1 5 02/15/2021

We appreciate working with you and your team. Thank you.

5 1 5 04/17/2021

Anthony was great to work with and quickly provided all updates and changes for his client for us to communicate to our pilots and prepare the trip. We were glad for the opportunity to work with you all and look forward to helping with more trips in the near future!!

5 1 5 11/22/2019

tks.

5 1 5 06/12/2017

I have used Stratos Jets quite a few times and have been extremely happy with the results. Kerry does a fantastic job and always follows up on all details. Thanks Steve

5 1 5 04/13/2017

We love Joel!

5 1 5 12/21/2021

We had a great flight. I greatly appreciated Zach calling to let me know the address of the gate had changed. I did get an email with the update but it didn't show up in my inbox til I was driving to the airport. We had a great flight with no issues. The crew were very helpful when and if we had any questions.

5 1 5 12/21/2021

Booking was easy, you made thr whole experience easy.

5 1 5 04/13/2017

I would like to be able to track aircraft on internet.

5 1 5 01/08/2023

Great experience overall. Communication is always great and solving any unforeseen issues has always been a breeze.

5 1 5 08/13/2012

Pilot did a terrible job of synchronizing the engines. It was bad enough at one point that the two guest passengers were worried we would need an emergency landing. I have flown on Hawkers for 15 years now and never had that experience. Crew was very nice, but the pilot needs some instruction. It was very disconcerting.

5 1 5 12/27/2016

We have been using Stratos for a couple of years now and appreciate their dedication to using only the safest charter operators. Just completed the front end of a back to back for the Christmas Holiday.

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Daniel is knowledgeable, responsive and professional. Great job!

5 1 5 04/27/2020

Thank You very much. Our experience from the beginning to the end were handled with such care and consideration. Felt very comfortable and am very glad that we chose you.

5 1 5 04/14/2020

Always a pleasure working with Stratos Jets. Never have had a bad experience.

5 1 5 04/24/2023

This was our first experience chartering a jet, and it was wonderful! I reached out to 40 private jet companies. We chose Stratos because Daniel went above and beyond from day one. He was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable about the aircraft. We weren't even sure what we were asking for in the beginning. We just had a checklist we were looking for. Daniel took this and helped us find the perfect aircraft for the trip. Daniel over-communicated and helped all along the way. The trip was so smooth. I can't recommend Stratos (and Daniel) enough. Thank you for such a wonderful and stress-free experience!

5 1 5 09/22/2020

Joel Thomas is knowledgeable and attentive. We always feel that we are getting the attention we need. The charters he has put together for us have been exactly how we wanted them to be. We have no hesitation in giving him our highest rating.

5 1 5 09/24/2020

From the moment we arrived at your facility where one employee came to greet us and take our luggage to the friendliness of the pilots and their updates during the flight to the thank you by the pilots after arrival, Stratos was wonderful. The one item that I realize is out of your control is the Signature waiting area at EYW. When we left, there was a family of 5 without masks. Masks are required. When we returned, the same experience, a group of 2 couples without masks were laughing and not maintaining social distancing.

5 1 5 03/24/2017

This survey reall doesn't apply to the use my company had with Stratos. We had to expedite a piece of equipment and a contractor to our facility to perform some emergency repairs. The process however did go well and the equipment and person arrived on time and the entire process was handled by Will Buckley in a very professional manner and was extremely helpful in making this adventure easy and convenient. He was great to work with and if the occasion should arise to use charter services again, we will contact you. thanks again

5 1 5 04/14/2020

Everything was done in super fashion. Anthony the scheduler, Anthony and Terry the pilots were fantastic!

5 1 5 10/28/2020

Every thing was smoothly handled from booking to the flight

5 1 5 08/31/2020

Beginning to end it was a first tier experience. Great value, great front end service and follow through, trip support, rental cars ready on the apron, super helpful staff. A genuinely wonderful experience.

5 1 5 12/05/2016

KEEP UP GOOD WORK,WHEN I CALLED WILL HAD MY PAST INFORMATION IN HAND.HE WAS GREAT

5 1 5 09/01/2020

In every aspect of my travel experience my trip was perfect. My exchanges with Anthony we're great, the planes we're beautiful and on time

5 1 5 12/21/2021

We had a large family gathering in Santa Barbara to which Frank with Stratos was able to arrange the flight. The plane and pilots were fantastic as was the service leading up to and throughout. I would recommend them to anyone that needs private travel arrangements.

5 1 5 08/02/2021

Anthony took care of us from the get go and then checked with us throughout the process. Within minutes of requesting info I got a call. Great customer service, great jets, and great value. Go with Stratos you won't be disappointed!

5 1 5 08/10/2020

I wanted to thank you for making the arrangements for my trip up north on 7/29/20 & the return flight yesterday with Tyler et all to Orlando. Everyone was very polite, timely, and helpful and we felt completely safe & comfortable traveling with Stratos Jet Charters.

Wishing you well & grateful for a wonderful alternative for traveling.

5 1 5 02/26/2018

Pre trip work up seemed very professional. Crew had plane positioned on time and assisted with loading. Just my wife and I and two dogs. It was the dogs first flight so we had some concerns but the crew did a great job in getting them aboard and settled down. flight was uneventful and all worked as planned. No issues at all. Very good

Same on return flight except we arrived a good half hour early but crew jumped to task and loaded us and dogs promptly for return. Only item worth mentioning was during climb out to altitude both my wife and I heard numerous bumping sound on both sides of fuselage up and down the sides and top. We have owned our own planes and owned shares in jets through Flight Options and chartered often over the years and we have never had this type of noise. It almost sounded like rivets coming out or random bird strikes (which I knew it was not). I mentioned it to the co-pilot and he told me to report it so maintenance could be sure to check it out. Said it may be a maintenance issue on an older aircraft but a first for me. After attaining altitude the noise did not reoccur. All else went according to schedule and the pilots were very professional and assisted on and off with dogs and luggage. I would use again this service. Thank

Joel Thomas:  Hi William!  Thanks for the opportunity to serve you and your wife.  We are always grateful when our clients take the time to offer feedback.  We reached out to Chief Pilot of the air carrier you flew with regarding the noise you mentioned and here is what they said:  "Frequently you'll hear noises that sound like that and its just the airplane expanding as altitude, temperature and humidity change.  Its actually very common."  Looking forward to working with you all again soon!  All my best

5 1 5 04/13/2017

Yuri was wonderful!

5 1 5 03/20/2020

Glenn was a fantastic resource who provided a comprehensive set of alternatives options, and was very proactive from the booking time to wheels down on arrival, very impressed

5 1 5 07/31/2023

The lounge in Ft Lauderdale was very professional, comfortable, and accommodating. Pilot was a real gem who charmed my first time flyer guests who started out nervous but hugged him on the way out! Would not hesitate to recommend for charter needs.

5 1 5 03/01/2018

I had the pleasure to work with Joel on a last minute trip needed to transport several professional athletes to an event. Joel was fast-acting and completely professional every step of the way. He sent constant updates to make sure our trip needs were met every step of the way. I would recommend Joel and Stratos to anybody looking to book private jets who also values professionalism and accountability.

5 1 5 06/23/2022

The entire process was smooth with Stratos Jet and the communication from all team members was great!

5 1 5 04/15/2020

yes!

  • 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.
