Long-running Tradition

Next to the Kentucky Derby, the Westminster Dog Show is the second-longest continually held sporting event in the US. One of the main purposes of the event is to evaluate prized breeding stock to ensure a high standard is maintained for future generations.

Of the 2,500 purebreds that compete in the two-day event, only one in each category will earn the prestigious honor of a Best in Breed title. Of those champions, only seven will earn coveted Group awards:

  • Sporting
  • Hound
  • Working
  • Terrier
  • Toy
  • Non-sporting
  • Herding

And, of course, there is the Best in Show honor that goes to the overall ‘top dog.’

Exclusive Travel to an Exclusive Event

If there were a word to describe the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, it would be ‘exclusive.’ The same can be said for those who choose private jet services as their mode of luxury air travel to New York City.

Both spectators and participants travel from all over the US for Westminster. While some might only have a short-haul to reach NYC, others must travel vast distances. This can be stressful on the animals. With so much at stake, some owners choose to use private jet services to transport their pedigree pooches. Stratos Jets is adept at organizing air travel for people with pets, making special arrangements so that your dog has a comfortable place within the cabin of the private plane.

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.

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 10/18/2012

My only complaint with Stratos is that Initially, I did not received the lowest price quote.

5 1 5 05/27/2014

lower cost flights :)

5 1 5 10/15/2021

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

5 1 5 09/21/2013

the flight was very nice thank you and we will do more with you

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.

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.

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 06/07/2016

Nothing, Heather is amazing as always and the reason I will continue to fly with you.

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 07/31/2023

The lounge in Ft Lauderdale was very professional, comfortable, and accommodating. Pilot was a real gem who charmed my first time flyer guests who started out nervous but hugged him on the way out! Would not hesitate to recommend for charter needs.

5 1 5 06/14/2021

We felt everything went well. However, at the beginning of the process we kept asking your Team to reach out to everyone on the e-mail thread and that took a little bit to get that aspect corrected ! However, once that took place it seemed like everything was smooth from that point forward. Joel and Glenn, Thank you both of you and your Team for the business ! We truly appreciate !

5 1 5 10/19/2020

I clicked on your “submit” option but not certain it went. In any event, trip great, pilot charming and helpful and Joel Thomas outstanding in responsiveness, patience and constant availability.
 

5 1 5 07/19/2017

The Stratos Jet Charters team provides a seamless & excellent experience from beginning to end. They are a forward thinking company that puts the customer first and never disappoints with any trip or itinerary. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

5 1 5 01/01/2022

Our original plane had maintenance issues and we were upgraded to the only plane available. It was such a beautiful ride, we upgraded for our return trip. Everyone at Stratos is professional, customer oriented and a pleasure to deal with. I will continue to use their service.

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 10/17/2018

Heather was an important part of my chose in Stratos.

5 1 5 09/10/2012

First time flying on a private plane. Knowing the exact layout inside & manner of boarding. Originally inquired about a Lear jet 35 & then confirmed a citation ll. Not a problem for me & my husband but for the 102 year old traveling with us was difficult to board as initial step into plane was 18 inches & the crew had to find a step stool. Steps were little and required several people to board & inboard her. The crew of Lance & Meagan were exemplary & would fly with them anytime

5 1 5 05/17/2021

We had a great experience, particularly with Steve and the booking process, as well as with flight, which was fantastic. We would highly recommend Stratos. Thanks again!

5 1 5 10/28/2020

Every thing was smoothly handled from booking to the flight

5 1 5 04/14/2020

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

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 02/05/2018

Always enjoy flying privately. Exciting from planning a trip to booking to flight(s). Predominantly use Stratos. Attentive and personal service. Joel Thomas was a great go to person. All subcontractors that they use have been top-notched. Only critique is I obtained better final pricing of the flight when I received quotes from other charter companies. Seems to be an industry thing about competitive pricing in order to obtain the best price. Yes I would recommend Stratos.

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Daniel is professional and engaged throughout the entire trip. From booking to wheels down.

5 1 5 03/22/2021

I have already recommended your firm to a friend and will continue to do so assuming, of course, my future travels with you remain consistent with my inaugural experience

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 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 06/29/2023

Came through for me in the clutch! Sanity saving charter ;-)

5 1 5 02/17/2018

Two thumbs up!

5 1 5 12/17/2016

This charter was a wonderful experience, from Will's handling of details at Stratos to a great piece of equipment and a top notch crew. I can't speak highly enough of Leo and Craig. I have spent a lot of time on mid-size aircraft, and this crew would rate at the very top of all I've met. Please extend our sincere thanks to Will, Leo, and Craig.

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 06/23/2022

The entire process was smooth with Stratos Jet and the communication from all team members was great!

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 02/19/2014

on the way down, the pilot was nervous, which made a couple of my guests worry...

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 09/27/2016

Simon was Great.  There is nothing that cold have been better.

5 1 5 05/10/2013

Ricky was wonderful to work with and answered all our many questions!

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 07/24/2012

Hire more people like Kevin Bales. If you ever fire him he can work for me. Great job.

5 1 5 02/21/2022

Always great to work with you guys!

5 1 5 05/07/2022

Great flight, always professional and nice aircraft!

5 1 5 03/01/2018

Joel was great to arrange a flight for us last minute. He kept me updated through the process/flights. We would love to work with Stratos again.

5 1 5 11/25/2018

The whole team is always professional and great to work with. You can tell there's a lot of integrity and experience in the company. Thank you folks!!

5 1 5 07/12/2013

We had quite a number of issues booking this trip, which resulted in add'l work and follow up for me. As broker these issues should have been handled / caught prior to making a proposal. I believe I had to sign 4 different revised quote sheets for this trip! Also the final signed sheet stated we would land in LFMD on the return leg. Hence we booked transportation for pick up at LFMD. However flight landed in LFMN. This caused add'l stress and expense for no reason. I have only now seen that the last itinerary link showed an arrival at LFMN - but I never opened this one since all previous ones, including the contract reconfirmation showed LFMD. As for the aircraft itself: it was one of the oldest ones I have ever flown. The door / separation to the toilet / luggage area was broken (not the lock but the entire frame!) and the toilet was not accessible due to a lot of "stuff" (amenities, water bottles, etc.) being thrown in / stored in the area. Overall cleanliness was not superb either. Finally, the catering we requested was not available / not complete. Breakfast (eggwhite and sausage!!) was cold and wet and the fruitplatter had molded grapes; no ice bucket, nor champagne glasses were present. On the return leg, fruitplatter was nice but again no ice bucket nor champagne glasses were present. As a matter of fact, the soft drink container was not even replenished w new ice!! So overall - yes, we flew from A to B but the service experience was disappointing.

5 1 5 07/24/2017

The Stratos Jet Charter team provides a seamless & top notch experience from beginning to end. They are a forward thinking company that puts the customer first and never disappoints with any trip or itinerary. I recently booked a short flight from Orlando to Boca Raton on a Falcon 2000EX and could not have been happier with the service and attention to detail that was provided for my wife, myself and the rest of our companions. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

5 1 5 03/21/2023

Glenn, who assisted every step of the way was professional and kind as he answered the many questions I had as this was our first experience traveling in this way. The communication was clear and any expectations we had were exceeded. The pilot was very personable and made the experience enjoyable from the time we arrived at the FBO until we landed. Thank you.

5 1 5 06/23/2021

Great setbicr

5 1 5 08/12/2020

Anthony, couldn't have been better. Elegant and effortless.  Delightful crew and immaculate plane.  Thanks for helping us with this and I am sure you will hear from us in the future. 

All the best,

Steve

  • 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.
