The Sounds of New Orleans

Held annually on the last weekend of April (Friday-Sunday) and the first weekend of May (Thursday-Sunday). The Jazz Fest, as it’s commonly known, happens at the Fair Grounds Race Course, a horse racing track in historic Mid-City.

While artists for the 2024 festival have yet to be announced, tickets are already on sale for one big name: the Rolling Stones. But Jazz Fest is about more than just jazz. The popular musical events celebrates all genres of music associated with the city, including:

  • Blues
  • R&B
  • Hip hop
  • Cajun
  • Zydeco
  • Afro-Caribbean
  • Latin
  • Rock

And, of course, there is a predominant collection of traditional and contemporary jazz performances, both from established and up-and-coming artists. In addition to the central festival locale at the Fair Grounds Race Course, many of the city’s nightclubs also get in on the act, hosting unaffiliated performances featuring an array of talented musicians.

Simon makes everything easy. He gets back to you immediately and efficiently!! The plane was gorgeous. All in all a perfect experience.

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

5 1 5 03/27/2018

As always, Joel and his team made this a seamless trip. We enjoyed every moment from booking to take off and landing and everything in between. Thank you!

5 1 5 06/02/2018

Joel, I hope this email find you well. I just wanted to reach out to thank you for the charter service you arranged for us last weekend. It was truly a pleasure to fly with Stratos and we will most certainly book with your charter service again. Thanks again for all of your help this week. It made the trip a breeze! Warm Regards, Matt, Scottie & Harper

5 1 5 03/10/2014

The aircraft was fine except for the AC. It either had to be run a full blast (we were wrapped up in blankets) or it had to be off in which case we were very hot.

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 04/12/2021

Steve and Stratos Jet haven’t once disappointed our family! The service is impeccable, communication is divine and we always feel safe flying with Stratos. Thank you all for constantly humoring me with all of my itinerary changes. I would highly recommend Stratos as well as Steve Stogner to anyone with high level travel needs!

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 11/13/2013

None. It was great. Had to go for a medical problem with my dad and Ricky was absolutely tremendous. I can't say enough good about him and how he handled things in a very difficult situation. the flight was awesome too. If I CAN ever justify the cost of flying private again like that Ricky and / or your company will get a call. Thanks so much.

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 05/15/2013

Garett is the best!

5 1 5 02/12/2020

This service was unmatched and couldn’t have been better!

5 1 5 06/02/2021

Joel got us a plane in less than 24 hours as we needed it for an emergency- thank you so much we are very grateful!

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.

5 1 5 07/17/2014

Your company really cares about it's customer and made us feel so comfortable and confident. I would recommend your service to others.

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 05/24/2020

Everything was perfect. Kyle was extremely helpful. Answered all questions quickly and was very professional without a “hard sell” style. Everyone I dealt with was perfect. The flight itself was fast, quiet, comfortable. The plane was very clean, and well maintained. Both crew were helpful and pleasant. It is very likely that we will travel like this again and Stratos will be our provider. Thanks again. Susan

5 1 5 01/08/2020

We recently flew on an International flight to the Bahamas with Stratos and the whole experience was top notch. From the flight support & customer service to the pilots and overall flight experience, our trip through Stratos was absolutely seamless. We highly recommend them!

5 1 5 07/03/2019

Yes, was a smooth process

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 09/18/2017

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

5 1 5 01/17/2013

I can't think of anything that wasn't handled perfectly. We'd like to extend a special thanks to the crew who were extremely helpful in loading and unloading the equipment.

5 1 5 04/28/2017

Joel and Stratosjets made my last minute flight to the Masters possible. Price was competitive and services was second to none.  Joel and his team responded to each call and SMS in a matter of seconds.  They took care of every detail from flight, to transport and everything in between.

5 1 5 03/26/2018

Yes. Good. Good. Yes

5 1 5 10/18/2013

It was a perfect flight!

5 1 5 06/23/2017

We have used Stratos for the past two years to handle our travel plans and enjoy the ease and attention to detail our trips have been handled with.

5 1 5 06/23/2022

Glen and his team took care of all of our needs, from the flight to the car that picked us up at our destination. Nothing could have been more convenient and top rate!

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 12/17/2018

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

5 1 5 11/26/2016

Our VP's had a wonderful trip and great experience. Your staff is professional, welcoming, easy to work with and I look forward to working with them again. Thank you!

5 1 5 02/19/2020

From the first email until the time we were wheels down in St. Thomas, the responsiveness, service, professionalism and attention to detail were exceptional. There is absolutely no chance I will ever use anyone else and I will be sure to share my experiences with my colleague’s here on Capitol Hill and in my professional and personal circles. A special acknowledgement to Glenn, for everything he did to make this a seamless business experience! Regards, Larnell Director, Travel, Security and Facilities,

5 1 5 06/03/2024

Kyle was most helpful in planning this trip for my parents. From when we arrived at the FBO, until they made it to their final destination point, everything was perfect. The pilots were very kind, knowledgeable, and polite. I would highly recommend the Stratos Jets.

5 1 5 01/20/2014

I do not know what more anyone could have done. The service was nothing short of amazing from everyone involved. The trip was for my ailing mother to attend my brothers wedding. If it had not been for all of you this would not have been possible, and for that we are truly greatful!

5 1 5 10/22/2018

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 06/27/2023

This is from an Operator standpoint--Stratos Jets as a broker is consistently professional and profitable to work with in their demand for quality and efficiency--great company top to bottom, their personnel being one of their best assets!

5 1 5 06/12/2017

Joel and the team at Stratos Jet Charters were great. Even on short notice, Joel was able to charter a plane for me in California and made sure that it was a smooth process the whole trip. He was readily available when I had several last minute changes to the itinerary. Highly recommend.

5 1 5 10/06/2017

I was frantically looking last minute for a private jet to transport myself and a family member with early onset memory loss from Minneapolis, MN to Keene, NH. I found Stratos Jet Charters online and they caught my eye. From the first phone call to Eric Bold, the broker, to the landing in Keene, NH, I was completely amazed at how easy it was to book the flight and get the details in order. Eric was super sharp and made the entire booking simple and fast in a very professional way. He was also totally available by phone immediately when I needed to talk with him. Sarah, also, helped us with catering and the passenger manifesto and she was just as competent. The pilots, Jeff and Deanna, made us feel very secure and confident about the flight and our comfort. I feel so fortunate to have found this company and will reach out to them for all of my future private jet needs. Thank you, each of you, and thank you, Stratos!!

5 1 5 02/02/2017

I have dealt with Stratos Jet for the past 10 years Always great response and outstanding service Highly recommend them for any charter service you may need

5 1 5 12/21/2021

Yes, as always, you are right there on top of everything. you actually do "your job", and we always hope that we do our job to your liking.

5 1 5 02/25/2012

Everything was perfect - nothing to improve. Many thanks to Richard Gomulka for his assistance - he was great!

Can't see anything lacking, a great job all the way around. Thanks, Mark

  • 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.
