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.

Glenn and team were responsive and kept me apprised of the status of our flight, despite dynamic weather. Pilots were experienced and jet was on time and flight was smooth.

5 1 5 02/23/2020

Easy booking/cost effective/always takes care of all problems

5 1 5 09/21/2021

We had a great experience, we will definitely use stratos again.

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 06/23/2021

Great setbicr

5 1 5 09/21/2013

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

Glenn was excellent to work with. I spoke with several charter companies before choosing Stratos. Glenn is the reason I chose Stratos Jet to bring my elderly parents home during the initial break of the COVID-19. He was professional, knowledgeable and on top of every detail. This was our first experience with a charter flight and Glenn explained the entire process from start to finish which helped me keep my anxiety in check. My parents flew from Florida to Ohio without any issues. They said the aircraft crew were professional and confident and made them feel safe. The plane was basic, cabin was small so it was a little challenging for older people with limited mobility. My parents are short, 5'4 and 5'1 and both had to duck down to get on and off the plane and while inside the cabin. That being said, we were given the option of a more luxurious cabin but chose not to spend the extra money. Stratos took care of getting my elderly parents home quickly, safely and allowed us to minimize the risks of commercial flying at this time.

Everything was first class even though we not only left one of our bags on the plane but lost a wallet on the return trip (not on the plane), Matt Machokas was very helpful in assisting us in helping to resolve our problems. All pilots were great. Matt also arranged a flight for us because of a date issue I made with the return flight. He assisted in finding another plane to be sent so that we did not have to wait another day.

5 1 5 12/23/2018

Our crew on the ground and in the air were excellent to the point that I learned from them. We went in to a 30 knot crosswind and drove all the way down to the runway quickly, no drifting or swaying. The landing was flawless and we all felt very safe. The plane was clean and well maintained. The refreshments were perfect. The process around booking travel was easy and unobtrusive. Thanks!!!

5 1 5 03/11/2021

Glenn made my first experience with Stratos easy and enjoyable. He went above and beyond to make sure I was completely satisfied and had all the information needed. I appreciated the attention to detail and the follow-up. Thank you

5 1 5 07/09/2021

Always a joy

5 1 5 12/31/2010

Great trip!  Keep us informed of empty legs to Aspen

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Trip was perfect.

5 1 5 06/08/2021

Zach was pleasant, knowledgeable, efficient and a delight to deal with. I have usually used another broker but Zach won the charter for your company Joel. Well done.

5 1 5 04/13/2013

Apparently the air wasn't working properly and was an uncomfortable flight until we were in the air.

5 1 5 11/03/2016

Peace of mind!!! My family and I just completed our first charter on a private jet with Stratos. My wife and I have been on a few of our friend’s charters before and I fly regularly on my company's aircraft but this was the first charter of our own. Stratos and specifically Joel Thomas made my wife and I feel that we were in great hands throughout the planning, selection and ultimately flight process. Family loved it!!! Great experience.

5 1 5 06/29/2023

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

5 1 5 12/19/2018

From start to finish Glenn was great. He accommodated our various changes and handled everything professionally. The flight was perfect. Pilot and co-pilot were great.

5 1 5 09/19/2018

My boss recently travelled to Europe for the entire month of August. During that time his jet had mechanical issues and could no longer fly where he wanted. He had about 12 flights left in his trip around Europe and Stratos Jet Charters, especially Heather Latch, saved our lives. They were able to accommodate 90% of the trips he wanted at the time he wanted. She really was a life saver for myself and my boss. I will definitely use Stratos Jets again and work with Heather any day of the week! They are magnificent!!

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 02/12/2014

This was a fantastic trip and our family will remember the rest of their life. Wife says it is the only way to travel via air. Everything was handled perfect

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 05/03/2021

Your whole operation is responsive and attentive, always good to deal with them

5 1 5 06/12/2017

Everything went perfect. great job. Yes I would recommend your company to my friends.

5 1 5 05/23/2021

10 out of 10 every time!

5 1 5 02/15/2021

We enjoyed flying with Stratos jet perfect service big thank you to Glenn, very responsive very customer oriented

5 1 5 03/19/2017

Service was incredible. Joel and Stratos was fantastic. Had a delayed special occasion and they went out of their way to make everything perfect. It was a surprise trip and could not have been easier to work with and very helpful in getting all arrangements made for in-flight. Beyond a 5 star. Thank you all for making a special trip a truly MEMORABLE one for us!!!

5 1 5 10/28/2020

Every thing was smoothly handled from booking to the flight

5 1 5 06/03/2020

My representative Simon did a really good job explaining my options and arranging our charter. Disappointed our charter Was 30 minutes late due to routine maintenance. Since it was routine, obviously it should have been scheduled to not interfere with our flight schedule. One of the big reason for the charter was to avoid sitting around a lounge in the Covid era. Due to the delay, that’s exactly what we did. Small issues, but water wasn’t working in lavatory, cabin temperature was a bit erratic, and air vent dripped water. Crew was courteous and flight was fine.

 

--------------------------

Dear Peter, 
 
Thank you for taking time to provide feedback regarding your recent flight on N860TX.  After receiving your review, I investigated the matter to learn a bit more about what was going on.  
 
During the pre-flight check, the crew discovered a maintenance issue that, while minor, needed to be resolved prior to your departure.   Unfortunately, resulting in a delay in your schedule.  We understand that the value of private aviation is oriented around your schedule and privacy, but we can not prioritize that over safety.  In the case of the delay, it is a result of the crews concern for safety of flight.  Regardless, our team values your feedback and have shared it with the air carrier as well.  
 
We look forward to working with you again on your next trip and will seek to ensure a smoother travel experience.
 
All my best,


Joel A. Thomas 

President and CEO 

5 1 5 04/13/2017

We love Joel!

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Ditto!

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 02/20/2021

Smooth, calm, on time and will use it again

5 1 5 12/21/2021

As always, every aspect of the trip from booking to deplaning could not have been more enjoyable and efficient!!

5 1 5 08/12/2020

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

5 1 5 09/05/2017

Excellent

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 09/18/2022

Flight was very nice. And the pilot, Scott Gustafson, was very professional and friendly. He did a great job with our luggage and talking about the plane and our flight. Great pilot.

5 1 5 01/24/2018

Once again: Joel, Sarah and Sandra delivered a seamless experience as well as the pilots and ground crew. There was 5 feet of snow in Steamboat Springs after a blizzard (Hayden Airport) and we took off perfectly and had a very smooth flight despite weather. The jet was beautiful and the awesome pilots tolerated our golden retriever trying to take over the navigation of the plane and two cats meowing. Stratos arranged for transportation home and the driver was so pleasant. Super happy again and will continue to only use them. Thank you again!

5 1 5 12/19/2023

I called my go to guy Anthony when another provider bailed the last second. He got me a plane ready to take off in two hours. Doesn't get any better than that!!

5 1 5 03/13/2022

Always a pleasure doing business with STRATOS, you make it a seamless booking from start to finish! Very professional! Thanks for your business.

5 1 5 01/07/2014

Pricing to be competitive with Marquis etc.

5 1 5 04/10/2013

Everything was very good, however, I am disappointed that I was quoted one price and was charged another.

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Danny, my Stratos Rep, was in contact with me on a regular basis. The rest of his team provided excellent support to ensure there weren’t any issues. The entire experience was better than my highest expectations. I’m already planning my next trip.

5 1 5 12/07/2016

I think you are doing everything I could think of. I feel very comfortable and safe.

5 1 5 11/26/2018

Everything about our experience was great. The quoting process was painless - several options were presented. Once the decisions were made there was great follow up from Rachel and her colleagues to handle every administrative matter with our trip. Everything went as planned and we were very happy. I would highly recommend considering Stratos for your next charter.

5 1 5 02/07/2018

This was a last minute medical request. Joel, who I have worked with in the past took time away from his vacation to assist me with a fight that met my needs exactly. He’s friendly and professional and a credit to any organization!

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 09/12/2013

awesome

5 1 5 02/07/2018

Smooth across the board as always. Thanks for the trip.

  • 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.
