Tour de France

The Tour de France is not for the faint of heart. Racers must cover a total distance of 2,170 miles (3,492km) in 23 days. Oh, and you only get two rest days the entire time.

The 111th Tour de France runs for three weeks, starting in Florence, Italy. This year marks the first ever Grand Départ in Italy and the first to not finish in Paris due to the 2024 Olympic Games. The course changes every year, and the rural scenery is always fantastic (if you’re a spectator), but it never gets any easier. This year’s stages have the following profiles:

  • 8 flat stages
  • 4 hilly stages
  • 7 mountain stages
  • 2 individual time trial
  • 2 rest days

Soar in Upscale Style

The sheer perseverance that’s required to complete this race, let alone win it, is what has compelled cycling fans the world over to arrange charter flights to France with Stratos Jets to watch this spectacle firsthand.

The Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España make up cycling’s prestigious, three-week-long Grand Tours, of which the Tour de France is the most popular and well-respected. And while the route changes each year, the general format for the Tour de France retains a number key elements:

  • Appearance of time trials
  • Passage through the Pyrenees and the Alps ranges
  • Finish on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, though this has changed to Nice for 2024 due to the summer Olympics in Paris

New UCI rules have limited the number of entrants this year, down to 176 from the nearly 200 riders from previous years. Each stage is timed, with individual times accumulating as the race progresses. The rider with the lowest aggregate time gets to don the coveted yellow jersey. For spectators, the Tour de France is a sporting event and an adventure all wrapped up into one. Stratos Jets will happily coordinate charter flights to France so you can follow the action across the French countryside.

Ricky takes care of everything, and I honestly like dealing only with him every time I call. Very hard working and goes over and beyond for me.

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 04/27/2021

Booking was great, Kyle is wonderful a asset to your company. However the pilots were not. They were not there on time never offered an apology or explained as to why. When questioned they were extremely RUDE. I was told that the Pilots went to eat lunch so they kept myself and family waiting over an hour past wheels up time. I arrived at 12:30 for a 1:00 flight they arrived at 1:30 for a 1:00 flight with BAD attitudes

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 10/14/2021

Class act from beginning to end!

5 1 5 12/21/2021

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

5 1 5 11/29/2023

Team, We have always enjoyed working with your professional staff. Requests and communication regarding trips are always timely. We hope that we can continue working together to provide a great experience.

I wasn’t able to do the survey that is being done by google as I don’t have a google email and don’t want to set up another email account to be spammed to death. However, if I could have done the survey, I would have given Stratos Jets very high remarks and the reason would be because of the dealings I have with Kerry Hill.  As I believe I told you when we met at the S&D last year, Kerry is the best and most considerate person I have ever dealt with from a Charter company.  Not only her flight following in which she keeps me posted on everything from beginning to end but also her attention to all the other details for the reservation such as needs of transportation for passengers, insuring that the catering is ordered and delivered.  She takes a lot of the weight and stress of my shoulders.  If ever I have a question, she is quick to get me the answers I need. In my opinion, she is a very valuable asset to your company.

5 1 5 01/03/2017

We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Stratus Jet Charters. From start to finish they were very professional, responsive and caring. We look forward to the opportunity of using Stratos Jet Charters for our next adventure.

5 1 5 08/12/2020

We felt safe, comfortable and the flight arrived ahead of schedule.

5 1 5 02/21/2022

Great platform, all trip information was readily accessible. Thank you for working with us on this one and keeping the itineraries flexible. No significant feedback otherwise, we look forward to the opportunity to assist with future operations!

5 1 5 11/22/2019

Thanks for all your updates. I could get used to this.

5 1 5 04/15/2024

Very good communication and timely responses for flight details. We work with alot of brokers and your level of expertise and communication is a breath of fresh air from what we typically see. Thank you again for your business and we hope to continue our relationship with your organization! JR

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

5 1 5 01/01/2019

Stratos is very professional, great communication, easy to work with

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 03/24/2020

Joel and his team at Stratos provided outstanding service during a time when air travel was challenging. In March 2020, Stratos was able to source an aircraft for my family with 24 hours notice. More importantly, when that aircraft arrived with a maintenance issue that occurred on landing, Joel and his team worked diligently to find us another aircraft within a few hours. He and his team went above an beyond to help us out. We highly recommend Stratos.

5 1 5 09/14/2017

I have worked with quite a few different charter companies over the years and Stratos Jets has been the easiest to work with. I always work with Kerry Hill because she very professional, friendly, and is just down right awesome at her job. I often need last minute trips for my boss and she always gets back to me quickly regardless of what time of day it is. I truely feel she goes above and beyond to make sure every aspect of the trip runs smoothly and everyone is happy. I can't say enough about how much stress is taken out of booking these flights because I know Stratos and Kerry have everything I need covered.

5 1 5 01/19/2018

The team was very happy with with the plane,crew and experience on Jan 17th. We are looking forward to working with Stratos Jets in the future.

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 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 05/23/2021

Thanks for the great service again Kyle!

5 1 5 11/05/2021

The team and the total Stratos experience consistently impresses me on every trip! The immediate feedback, the technology platform which enables an immediate view of flight and aircraft availability, and of course the wonderful and accommodating communication with the whole team; Stratos is always amazing! They always go the extra mile and are always being preventative and proactive long before wheels up and down. As Stratos clients, we don’t feel any of the industry's current supply crunch. Whatever we have tasked Stratos with they have met and exceeded our needs and we could not ask for more or be happier. The experience, year-over-year is that Stratos has only added more options, more operators and we have only great experiences.

5 1 5 02/21/2021

we will, repeat, refer, and appreciate, thank you.

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 05/08/2020

After our flight, I sent an email to Joel Thomas (CEO) telling him about our experience. Joel called me last night to thank me for email. In part, my email to Joel said: Ernest Hemingway once said: "The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them". We trusted Stratos Jet Charters with our first charter flight, and the actions of all of your employees and contractors sustained our trust in Stratos. I told my wife when we were flying down: "Kyle (Jones) must sleep with his phone or computer on his pillow". It didn't matter when I called, texted, or emailed. Kyle always responded on a near immediate basis. Wow! Since this was our first charter, Kyle professionally and patiently walked us through the entire charter process with accurate, complete, and well-documented information. He seemed to always be a step ahead and in many, many cases, anticipated our questions and preemptively answered them. In a world where you hesitate to call a service provider or financial institution because you know you will be stuck on hold or in voicemail hell, it is indeed a breath of fresh air to find a company who communicates so very, very well and truly appears to care about their customers and the customer's experience with them. Most of my interaction was with Kyle Jones but I also had communications with Sandy Milam and she exhibited the same responsiveness as Kyle. The ground crews at Signature Flight Services at TEB and PBI were equally adept at continuing that service of excellence. Last but certainly not least, pilots Ernie Guido and Don Poskitt were the icing on the cake. As a former CEO of a professional services business, I know how important the client experience is and how communication is one of the very key components. I just wanted to be sure you heard about our experience from a very satisfied customer. Kudos to you and your staff.

5 1 5 03/13/2024

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

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 10/06/2013

While this was the first time between these two cities, we may take this route frequently in the future.

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 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 05/01/2014

Service and attention was excellant. Little disapointed in the interior room. Very cramped.It would be OK for a very short flight but longer than 1 hour would need more interior room with adquate bathroom facitlies.

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 04/19/2017

Top notch customer service from the initial contact through the end of trip, incredibly quick turn-around-time for a quote, very detail oriented itinerary. I highly recommend Stratos for any of your charter needs!

5 1 5 10/14/2014

You can not improve on perfect !!

5 1 5 02/20/2013

I really don't have a basis for comparison since this was my first experience with a charter but I was extremely pleased with the service.

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 05/07/2022

Great flight, always professional and nice aircraft!

5 1 5 10/11/2020

Everything went well , the plane and it’s crew were excellent. A very favorable experience

5 1 5 11/22/2017

Always a pleasure. Happy Thanksgiving.

5 1 5 03/01/2018

Wonderful! Plan to do it again. My wife and I had no idea that such a level of GREAT service was available.

5 1 5 06/20/2017

From pre-trip planning to updates via text message on your way to the airport, Stratos had us covered. We made our way from Emirates @ JFK and the FOB transfer was easy. Joel had already updated Julie (my assistant) before we landed that there were long delays out of JFK due to weather. The transfer to FBO was easy and they were expecting us. The plane was comfortable and modern and the crew could not have been kinder. Thank you guys as always for a great trip. Flight was great and the crew took us right past the storms and my one year old son slept the whole trip; a much needed reprieve for my wife and I.

5 1 5 10/31/2020

No complaints. Thank you for your help. Art

5 1 5 08/31/2020

Our trip experiences some changes due to weather, which was professionally handled by the team. The trip destination was changed to an alternate airport. Anthony was responsive and helpful. I had a chance to see how Stratos handles things when the plan doesn’t work perfectly, and the team provided exceptional service.

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 08/22/2017

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 06/11/2018

KERRY HILL WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO HELP ME WITH THIS TRIP FOR MR. SOLLBERGER. 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 12/04/2019

Crews were amazing. Aircraft less so. Very outdated and need of refurbishing. Shoulder seat belt was missing from one of main seats.

5 1 5 05/18/2020

It's so easy to book and Anthony is amazing. No hiccups and always informative.

  • 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.
