Always there to take care of any problem that arise. Professional quality cost effective service

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 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 07/31/2023

Daniel is knowledgeable, responsive and professional. Great job!

5 1 5 10/20/2020

Yes

5 1 5 06/29/2018

As always, your staff is a pleasure to work with, and are very good with their communication, etc. I (of course) wish we didn't have the snafu with your client cutting the trip short, only to change his mind - costing us an additional 3 hours of flight time (approx. $10,000) - since we cancelled a trip with another operator to accommodate his request to leave early. I think there should have been a consideration for a 2 hour cancellation fee or something there. We understand that this wasn't Stratos Jets' doing - but I believe your client should have been penalized in some way as he was informed we had another trip and he told us to cancel it to accommodate him. This was very disappointing (and financially detrimental) for us, especially as we had lowered the cost of the trip (in addition to removing all minimums) prior to booking. The only way it made sense for us to do that was to fly while sitting transient.

At last minute's notice I needed to find a private plane to get my elderly parents from Bangor, Maine to Atlanta. I googled charter companies and Stratos Charters was first to pop up. I called immediately and Joel (founder and president of company) answered. He could not have been more gracious and helpful. He was the perfect combination of professional and personable. Our charter was arranged and the trip went through seamlessly. Stratos Charter and Joel made a stressful situation into a very pleasant one for us. I highly recommend their services and will definitely use them in the future. Thank you to them!

5 1 5 02/05/2021

Great trip all round. Glenn and the team were terrific. The crew on the day were amazing.

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 05/09/2017

Having used many charter companies before with mixed experiences, I can say with confidence that Stratos has the best service and highest level of professionalism of any of the charter services I have encountered. Most recently, we had an unfortunate last minute cancellation of a charter booked through another service, and Stratos came through at the last minute to find the right plane at the right price for us with under 24 hour notice. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism as well as their willingness and ability to go above and beyond to find the right charter for us - even as a first time customer.

5 1 5 12/21/2021

Booking was easy, you made thr whole experience easy.

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 12/17/2018

I could not ask for more, I love using Stratos and will never use anyone else!

5 1 5 01/27/2019

Stratos Jets has always been Organized and on point through the booking process. Their clear communication has always made it possible to execute each trip smoothly and as planned. This consistency has made them a trusted and pleasant company for us to work with. True honest business people! Thank you!

5 1 5 06/11/2018

SHE IS PATIENT AND KNOWLEDGABLE AND WAS MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP SEE THAT MR <REDACTED> ARRIVED SAFELY ON THE GROUND AND AT HIS HOTEL . I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT KERRY'S EXCELLENCE. THE FLIGHT AND CREW WERE EXCELLENT AS WELL.

5 1 5 06/04/2020

I will definitely use Stratos Jets again and will recommend the company without hesitation. It has been several years since I have chartered a jet and this process was very easy and friendly.

5 1 5 10/18/2012

Since it was my first charter I have no comparisons

5 1 5 03/31/2019

Glenn,
The trips, one to Iowa & the other back to Dulles, went great. 
Everyone did great jobs & made me & my 94 year old Mom feel comfortable & taken care of. 
Glenn & Rachel were especially helpful. 
I would use your service again and will let Glenn know about my next trip. 
Thanks to you, Glenn, Rachel and the very nice/competent pilots.  Ground staff were great too. 
Thank you.

5 1 5 01/27/2019

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.

Glenn was wonderful, the jet was clean and the crew was fantastic.

5 1 5 01/20/2019

Yes

5 1 5 02/23/2012

I do not think there is anything else that could have been done to make our flight enjoyable. The crew, Vincent Jordan and Nicholas Gambino, were very professional, extremely courteous and if we were to charter another flight in the future we would love having them as our crew.

5 1 5 08/03/2022

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 07/03/2019

Yes, was a smooth process

5 1 5 11/01/2021

Easy to book, easy to work with. Smooth trip overall.

5 1 5 01/08/2023

I took a trip to NYC for New Year's Eve with my wife and another couple, the whole Times Square experience was amazing. Danny is a ROCKSTAR, he took care of every detail and stays in constant contact with me ensuring all my trips are seamless and effort-free on my part. This trip had a snag or two with planes and availability. Danny once again handled everything in a truly professional manner and kept me in the loop, even texting and talking to me on Sunday night! I will never go anywhere unless Danny is in my corner. THANK YOU!

5 1 5 04/06/2017

Thanks to Kerry for helping us get to where we need to be ! Very detail oriented company. Pilot's were very professional. See you next time!

5 1 5 05/22/2021

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 07/19/2021

From start to finish everything was perfect. Steve Stogner was awesome, professional, efficient, great follow up . Our pax’s said “ absolutely loved the experience, great pilots, beautiful aircraft “

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 07/15/2018

Always a pleasure to do business with Stratos Jets. Smooth process from booking to completion. A great organization.

5 1 5 12/07/2016

Ricky was awesome and everything went smoothly. I will certainly use your services again should a need arise. Thank you for everything!

5 1 5 05/12/2021

Good afternoon, I hope all is well! The experience has been quite pleasant when dealing with Stratos Jet Charters! We appreciate your business and constant support. I look forward to continuing that business once our jets are added to our fleet. Thank you!

5 1 5 03/09/2023

Everything was great. Prompt and clear comms about flight / craft options. Kept us informed about key status. Nice account website and live-links for details. And, just friendly and pleasant people to work with. One big thing was that our original operator's plane cancelled due to mechanical the day before our departure. We know that happens sometimes and not Stratos' fault. What was great was how quickly the Stratos team got us viable alternatives. Within probably an hour we had an alternate operator confirmed. We were very pleased how well Stratos reacted. And, the replacement craft and crew were top-notch as well.

5 1 5 07/09/2021

My wife received treatment for cancer in Tijuana. It wasn’t possible to bring her home on a commercial flight. I reached to several charter services and Kyle at Stratos was so helpful. He immediately responded to my request and answered all my questions. He stayed engaged with us through the entire trip. The next time I need to charter a plane I will only make call. Stratos!! Great experience!!! Phil

5 1 5 09/17/2021

Other than car rental issue it was great.

5 1 5 03/27/2013

All good. I would like info on best, fastest way to charter jet for my next trip to India. I'm not wealthy, & run a small business. My work is only to benefit impoverished people internationally. My website is www.lesindiennes.com. I must travel regularly to India yearly for my business. I wonder if your company alo cares about these people? Is it possible to use your services for this business travel? Can you advise me to a NY company that is more suitable to my needs. I answered your questionnaire. I look forward to your advice, & to learn how much your co. Is concerned with the plight of these people's? Best Mary

5 1 5 03/22/2021

It’s always a pleasure working with Stratos jets! Your team always seems to be on top of everything. Thanks again for another smooth trip.

5 1 5 10/20/2022

Anthony made the booking easy and kept us fully informed. Flight itself was definitely 5 start. Good plane, good crew, good weather. What more can one ask?

5 1 5 09/27/2013

None that I can think of

5 1 5 01/24/2018

As the assistant who actually booked the trip and made the plans for my employer and her family, I must say that the experience was a new one for me. That said, the unfamiliar process was made much simpler thanks to the knowledge, expertise and patience of my rep, Christina Nesbit. She was extremely informative and helped thru each step of the process, reassuring me that the passengers were getting the most appropriate plane for their needs. I will double check to be sure there isn't any additional feedback I am missing, but to date I was told that the flight was a pleasurable one and they were appreciative and impressed that the President came to greet them pre flight as well. Thank you, Shari

5 1 5 02/21/2012

Can't think of a thing!

5 1 5 03/01/2020

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 01/29/2019

Thanks for everything Joel... You made the booking process quite easy and were very patient in explaining everything. I appreciate all your help and I will definitely pass your contact information to all my co-workers in case they ever have a request for a jet booking.

5 1 5 05/20/2020

Great experience.

5 1 5 01/01/2022

All aspects of our interaction with Stratos was perfect. My wife and I will definitely use their services in the future.

  • 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.
