Hockey History in the Making

Every October, 30 NHL teams begin the season with aspirations of making the playoffs. Once you’re in, everyone has a chance to make a serious push for the Stanley Cup. Standing in their way is a grueling 82-game regular season and opposing teams made up of the finest hockey talent on the planet. There are so many pieces required to build a Stanley Cup-caliber team:

  • Great goaltending
  • Stud defensemen
  • Speedy wingers
  • Relentless forecheckers
  • Seasoned coaches

However, you can’t just rely on talent to win the Cup. It also takes grit, depth, character and leadership. The other thing contending organizations share is rabid fan support. As they go deeper into the playoffs, the games get more intense, and the arenas get louder.

Soar in Style to the NHL Playoffs

There are no easy roads to the Stanley Cup. The players know it, and so do the fans that loyally follow their teams throughout the playoffs. When your team goes deep into the post-season, private jet travel is a fantastic option for diehard fans that want to watch their team at home, and on the road.

There are few experiences like watching your team battle in (and hopefully win) a NHL playoff game live. And that’s where Stratos Jets comes into play.

Appreciate Glenn's attention to detail and follow up. He is great to work with.

5 1 5 05/17/2021

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

5 1 5 12/16/2018

Sherman is a great pilot and so was his co-pilot. Looking forward to many future endeavors.

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 06/30/2017

It is clear that Stratos Jets is one of best charter brokerage companies in the world. When we get the pleasure to work with Joel and his entire team, we get to see first hand what sets them apart. The knowledge of operations, safety and different charter markets is always spot on. The trips are sent to us complete and executed flawlessly which makes the entire process more effiecient and better served the client. In addition to being one of the top aviation professional, Joel is a role model for many and I am grateful to have him part of my journey as a friend.

5 1 5 03/26/2020

Picture perfect. If I had one small complaint it was the outbound plane had no water in the bathroom

5 1 5 11/29/2018

I made all of the arrangements for the charter flight for my boss and his family. I worked with Joel Thomas personally, who took the time with me to show the jet options available, all the while considering my boss's medical issues and care requirements. He emailed a jet comparison guide with photographs to view side-by-side so that I could make a wise and informed decision, and walked me through them over the phone. He was determined to provide the best possible experience for everyone. Joel made it all so easy, and it was clear after conversations with him that he has a heart for people and genuinely cares about their needs. I ordered in-flight catering, over the phone, which could not have been any easier. The food was plentiful and exceptional! My boss called me the next day asking that I inquire as to who the local caterer was that supplied the food, as he wants to make sure that we use them in the future. They staged all of the food on beautiful white platters that looked classy and elegant, as though it was all prepared for red carpet guests. And every selection was freshly prepared that day and over the top in flavor! The pilot was very nice and personable and clearly cared about the comfort and safety of his passengers. The plane was extremely comfortable and very luxurious. The seating was perfect for the six of them and their cat, Molly! I received a call the next day from my boss's grown daughter, and all she did was rave about how it was first class all the way! She said I always do such a great job. LOL! It was Joel and the Stratos team that did all the work! My part was easy! Ohhh, and Joel also went out of his way to arrange for ground transportation upon their flight's arrival. I can say from personal experience over the years, that flying does not get any better than going first class with Joel Thomas and his team at Stratos Jet Charters. I want to thank them for making me look like the best assistant ever!!

5 1 5 10/14/2021

I couldn't be happier with level of service provided to me by Frank and his team! Everything was so easy and just a click away. I really appreciated Franks attentiveness to my trips. Stratos Jet will definitely have my business in the future. Thank you Frank & team, you are awesome!!!

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 10/04/2013

Chris was SUPERIOR - great customer service on his behalf. Most certainly will contact him directly for next charter flight. 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 01/09/2017

Our company uses Stratos, we work directly with Kerry, she and everyone else have always been extremely helpful and manage our flights and requests with no problem! They respond friendly, quickly and we have no interest in ever switching companies. Highly recommended! Extremely happy clients!

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Anthony is amazing. He goes above and beyond every time anyone in my family has booked a flight through Stratos. He makes sure all of our needs are met and walks us through every step. After flight is booked he checks on us every step of the way to our destination and back.

5 1 5 05/20/2021

Yes, Excellent, Excellent, Yes

5 1 5 04/14/2019

I would recommend Stratos Jet to friends, we plan to try the service again soon.

5 1 5 11/22/2016

There is no way to improve on what Garett did for us in our time of personal tragedy. He responded with excellence, compassion, thoroughness etc. He went over and above for an absolute stranger in tremendous need. I can't say enough about the job he did. God bless Garett!!!

5 1 5 04/14/2020

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

5 1 5 10/14/2014

You can not improve on perfect !!

5 1 5 06/21/2021

Fantastic experience as always with Stratos! Joel and his team found us a great flight with a brand new airplane that accommodated all of our family and our schedule. The value can’t be over stated Joel always places us with the right equipment for the right trip

5 1 5 01/01/2019

Pilots were terrific, polite, and kind.

5 1 5 02/20/2021

Smooth, calm, on time and will use it again

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 03/03/2021

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 06/22/2017

Always a pleasure to work with the Stratos Jet crew. You all have great communication with us which makes our life as an operator easier. Great job from Kerry, Sarah, and Trip Support as always.

5 1 5 06/19/2021

Everything from start to finish was great will definitely be utilizing Stratos again

5 1 5 11/05/2021

Stratos helped us make an amazing memory … I flew my elderly parents (90+ years old) from SC to PA for the day to spend time with our entire family. Everything from the planning, scheduling and coordination was seamless and went off smooth and in time. The pilots were so kind and gracious with my parents and made the 1.5 hour flight enjoyable. I must say at the heart of this entire experience was Kerry Hill of Stratos, she made it her mission to make this truly special, she went above and beyond… thank you so much Kerry & Stratos! All the best … Billy

5 1 5 01/18/2024

already recommended to a friend.

5 1 5 10/23/2017

Would highly recommend EVERYONE ALIVE! Amazing service. Awesome team, from first call to post flight. Top flight!

5 1 5 08/19/2014

Everybody was great. The plane could use a bit of a face lift, but since we were transporting eight animals, it was okay. I would definitely recommend Stratos to anyone who asks.

5 1 5 08/07/2015

Mr. <name removed for confidentiality> is extremely upset and disappointed with Stratos Jets as the plane had mechanical problems on take off which delayed the trip by 5 hours. It was his wife's birthday and the entire family had a full day of sightseeing arranged which had to be cancelled. The trip was very costly and he feels he is due back some compensation. Thank you, Etta G.

5 1 5 03/07/2023

Stratos helped find the perfect jet for our group's needs. Everything was on time and went smoothly. The communication was excellent, I always knew what was going on.

5 1 5 11/01/2021

The experience from start to finish was excellent. I would highly recommend 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 11/03/2016

THANK YOU STRATOS!! I have been working with Stratos Jet Charters for almost 3 years now & could not be happier with the services they provide! Working with me on many last minute changes, they are always quick & efficient, extremely professional, genuinely honest & immensely knowledgeable of all products and services they offer. They truly look out for the best interests of their clients. I trust them to always guide me in making the appropriate aircraft choices for our company. I find the ENTIRE team to be THE BEST in the charter aircraft business!!

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Yes to all.

5 1 5 04/07/2021

The Team at Stratos arranged another great flight for our family. We had a great Lear 45 with a brand new interior! The pilots could not have been kinder and sweeter with our boys and the entire journey was totally seamless. If you are considering Charter you are missing out if you are not using Stratos- THE BEST SAFETY, SERVICE & PRICE value combination- period! Thank you Stratos Team again.

5 1 5 06/08/2021

Easy to book with a lot of options regarding the type of aircraft needed

5 1 5 04/02/2018

Competitive pricing and unbelievable customer service, from inquiry to post flight. They make it happen and make it easy. I will not competitive shop again because I have found the best price and service with Stratos.

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 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 02/02/2017

As a part 135 operator, I have been doing business with Stratos Jets since it was founded by Joel Thomas in 2006. Since the first trip I could tell they were a different type of Jet brokerage. Joel and his team of aviation advisors have always conducted themselves with the highest of standards and partnered with platinum operators like us to give their customers a luxurious private jet experience. Thank you for a decade of partnership and excellence. Thank you for your friendship! Rich Brennan VP of Sales

5 1 5 02/13/2017

Stratos takes the complicated process of private air charter and makes it simple. They have helped me through the process and Joel even turned down my offer for purchasing a Pre-paid Jet card because he advised that it would not be a good fit for my home airport and family lifestyle. I shortly became a client after that because that experience was indicative of the company's overall honesty and great ethos. We have Chartered with Joel on multiple occasions and always get the the 3Gs of private air travel - Great Safety, Great Plane & Great Price. Stratos is a great company and they put your safety 1st and make the process easy. You can text or call them at anytime and their response time is amazing. You truly feel special. Flying on chartered planes is something we really value and keep very personal and discrete. Joel assists us in keeping the experience special and within our schedule and budget. I recommend Stratos to friends who have jet cards, fractional ownership and 1st timers alike. If you are considering charter, the 1st call to make is to Stratos. They never pressure you and value the relationship. I can not say enough about this team - A great experience!

5 1 5 09/17/2018

I always enjoy working with Stratos Jets. They have a great operation that is seamless.

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 11/21/2018

HI Heather, I just wanted to let you know that the trip was fabulous. Everyone was especially excited about the trip to and from Florida on the jet. The pilots were very friendly and professional. We will definitely be using your service again. The G200 was the perfect aircraft for us also. Thank you again for your help in arranging such perfect transportation.

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 06/15/2023

As usual, Anthony made the entire experience wonderful. He was expeditious in finding options for our trip and maintained continuous communication. The flight and support he provided were excellent.

5 1 5 12/21/2021

Stratos service is professional, prompt, proactive and easy to do business with. Any questions or concerns they get on it right away ( ie itinerary changes) and very accommodating. I recommend them to all my friends, and when I travel Stratos is my first call.

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 03/27/2018

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!

  • 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.
