Key West’s Top Attraction

What was once one of the slowest tourist seasons in Key West is now one of the busiest. Thanks to a group of locals, Fantasy Fest was created in 1979 to draw more visitors to the Key West location. Since its inception, tens of thousands of people have been in attendance, eager to take part in the 10-day street party.

2024 marks the festival’s 45th year of existence, and this year’s Fest is set to be one of the best. With a theme of “It’s a 90’s Neon Cosmic Carnivale!,” expect thousands of people in bright colors and wide smiles.

Although there are a few family-friendly events, Fantasy Fest is mostly catered toward adults. From nudity to alcohol, this is probably one trip where you may want to consider leaving the kids at home.

Its central location makes it a popular destination for partygoers in October. If you prefer taking a drive on the Overseas Highway, the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) or Opa-Locka Airport (OPF) are great options as well.

The experience was perfect throughout from initial contact through final payment. Our flight was a last minute family emergency and the folks at Stratos Jets made every effort to get me and my family home as quickly and safely as possible. I cannot thanks them enough for caring about our situation.

5 1 5 12/19/2023

I called my go to guy Anthony when another provider bailed the last second. He got me a plane ready to take off in two hours. Doesn't get any better than that!!

5 1 5 03/19/2017

Service was incredible. Joel and Stratos was fantastic. Had a delayed special occasion and they went out of their way to make everything perfect. It was a surprise trip and could not have been easier to work with and very helpful in getting all arrangements made for in-flight. Beyond a 5 star. Thank you all for making a special trip a truly MEMORABLE one for us!!!

5 1 5 04/20/2023

I would recommend Stratosjets to anyone. This was not an easy booking for a number of reasons, but Kerry Hill and the Support staff provided THE best customer service I have ever experienced for ANY service or purchase. If there were more than 5 stars as an option, I would give them more. Bravo!

5 1 5 07/09/2021

Easy to book with and were very accommodating with a last minute booking.

5 1 5 11/28/2020

Stratos made this trip extra special with a gift of cupcakes upon departure for my wife's birthday. Great crews and aircraft and even when flying during some of the busiest times of the year everything was super easy and stress free! Thank you Mark & Sarah for always covering every detail and especially our last minute changes. You guys make every trip fun and special.

Hi Steve and Joel and Sandy,

 

Wanted to say thank you for the quick refund. It’s nice to work with you. Very professional.

 

Bye and best regards to the U.S.,

Everything went as smoothly as it possibility could have. Special kudos to Randy who was perfect in his communication skills. Good equipment, good pilots ...great trip thanks

5 1 5 11/23/2020

The entire Stratos Jets support team is always a pleasure to work with. As an operator, we appreciate the exceptional communicativeness of the SJ team; Kyle Jones was excellent as our SJ contact for this trip. Payment for the trip is always prompt. Any and all information we need is provided and day-of support is phenomenal. We are looking forward to working with you again soon! -Flying Zebra Team

5 1 5 01/31/2020

The flight was great. Kyle was easy to work with and very professional. The plane was very comfortable and our pilots were terrific! Great experience all around!

5 1 5 10/14/2014

For our far flung family, Stratos has been a consistently dependable, and cost conscious alternative to fractional and no-minimum jet programs. For us, safety is number one and cost is number two... Stratos has excelled in both areas. Their response to requests is always prompt and personal.  It is a pleasure working with Stratos.

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 11/03/2020

Glenn and his team at Stratos were amazing. Unfortunately, the operator provided last minute communication of a delay that caused problems on the arriving end of the flight. The operator was aware of the delay the night before and failed to inform Glenn (and in turn, me). The drive from the San Jose, CR airport to my final destination was incredibly dangerous due to my having to drive at night. The stress of travel was significant to begin with. The poor communication and the delay into the final destination caused another whole level of stress which is understood when you travel commercially, but not when you spend $17K on a private jet charter.

5 1 5 07/13/2021

Everything from booking to flying to ground transport was taken care of. Stratos made our golf trip amazing!

5 1 5 01/08/2023

My agent was wonderful. However, my scheduled flight time was changed due to the owner wanting to use their plane. This change resulted in my missing an engagement. No discount was given to me for my inconvenience. The lack of observance of a signed contract was shocking and frankly showed a lack of integrity. I expect monetary compensation.

5 1 5 03/16/2020

Always a pleasure to work with you all. Please let me know about the app you've developed. Thanks, Joel. Sincerely, Joe Stephenson Merlin One

5 1 5 12/30/2020

I have not arranged or travelled by private jet except to Lanai in Hawaii. My husband and i usually fly first or business so to ensure a good service and safety i contacted 4 brokers to ask for quotes, Randy Schuette provided more than a quote, he explained the whole process and his reassuring knowledge and attention to detail was the reason i used Stratos. The trip advisory team were then very informative, and responsive. The plane was beautiful and the pilots were very friendly. I would definitely recommend Stratos and look forward to using your services again.

5 1 5 07/03/2019

As always, Kerry did a great job for us. Very happy with aircraft interior, performance and crew.

5 1 5 12/15/2020

The trip was excellent, the aircraft new, clean and confortable. The staff really did the best to make the best possible experience. Will definitely fly again with you

5 1 5 06/15/2017

The company I represent was in a crisis situation where we needed to get halfway across the country within a matter of hours. The only available commercial flight was sold out and nothing would get us there in time. After doing some research, I found Stratos Jet Charters and called Joel at around 7 in the morning. He answered right away and were at the airport two hours later. Because it was a high stress situation in a short amount of time, I called Joel and his team countless times in a two hour window; they remained extremely professional and kind. Plus, Joel was able to get us an extremely competitive price, especially considering the short notice. I highly recommend using Stratos Jet Charters and know I will definitely use them again.

5 1 5 02/21/2022

Great pilots, crew, and plane! Helped a lot with Covid stuff.

5 1 5 03/03/2021

I thought it was very well-organized and information flows were smooth. The broker worked with me to get an excellent option at an attractive pricing point. The flight was smooth and professional. An outstanding experience!

5 1 5 05/03/2021

Stratos was great and we for sure will recommend our broker to our friends

5 1 5 06/15/2020

Thank you for using Business Jet Access, we appreciate your business and it was a pleasure working with the Stratos team. Information was provided in a timely manner and communication was clear. Thanks again and we look forward to future trips.

5 1 5 12/10/2016

Garrett is fantastic to work with. He is kind, responsive and you can tell he really cares about his customers. I worked with a different company on our way to our destination because Garrett could not find a plane. The agent at that company did not compare favorably to Garrett. I would highly recommend Garrett.

5 1 5 06/12/2017

Everything went perfect. great job. Yes I would recommend your company to my friends.

5 1 5 05/17/2021

Yes, would recommend Stratos to anyone looking for a charter!

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 12/25/2017

You guys are great. Thanks for your business Haley

5 1 5 05/23/2021

10 out of 10 every time!

5 1 5 12/20/2019

We appreciated the trip you allowed us to fly. Everything went well on the trip and your customer enjoyed the flight on our King Air.

5 1 5 05/03/2018

I travel regularly for business and have booked charter flights through a number of different private jet companies. At the beginning of the year, I was referred to Joel at Stratos. Since then, I have booked a number of flights through Stratos. His team does a great job ensuring we have a seamless travel experience. I would definitely recommend Stratos to others.

5 1 5 02/21/2022

Always great to work with you guys!

5 1 5 01/10/2022

Glenn made booking effortless, pilots made it a great flight and yes, I would recomend to a friend.

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Great communication, everything on time and accurate, highly recommended

5 1 5 06/14/2017

Great Trip Support Team We love working with Stratos Jets! They are fast to respond, reasonable to work with, and their brokers and trip support team are very detail oriented which leaves little room for error. I would highly recommend them!

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 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 07/19/2021

Excellent service from end to end. Booking the charter was top level service, and that extended all the way to landing and departure from the terminal.

5 1 5 03/20/2021

We only ever book with Stratos-- Joel and his team are so professional and helpful, even with last-minute travel needs. They are the best!

5 1 5 03/22/2020

Stratos responded to our request for a flight to leave Anguilla before the flights in and out were stopped. We called Thursday night for a flight on Friday (borders closed at midnight Friday). Response was great ! All aspects ...the agent (Glen) kept in constant contact making sure of all the details with constant updates. The pilots ...Brian and Richard were great...real pros and very friendly. Made sure our flight was comfortable and safe.

5 1 5 05/03/2018

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 09/12/2013

awesome

5 1 5 04/24/2019

Another great experience with Joel & his team. From rental car arrangements to being ready for three small children Stratos handled everything. The equipment was beautiful and the crews were very kind! I never can say enough praise for Stratos!

5 1 5 08/17/2017

Was a great experience. Joel got everything done within a few hours while we were in Europe. Great people. Great service.

5 1 5 11/05/2021

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

My family has flown with you dozens of times. Everything, from booking, to the flights, to the follow-up shows that you care about your customers. I would definitely recommend Stratos & have already done so.

Heather was an important part of my chose in Stratos.

Pilots were wonderful. Dave even brought food for us when he saw we hadn't ordered any catering on the return flight.

  • 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.
