Machu Picchu, Peru Jet Charters
Machu Picchu Jet Charter Information
Want to experience the best of South America? Take a private jet charter to Machu Picchu in Peru. In doing so, you’ll start off your South American trip in one of the most historically significant, undeniably beautiful destinations on the entire continent. Machu Picchu, the world-famous ancient city ruins of the Incan Empire, sits high in the Andes Mountains, overlooking Peru’s sacred Urubamba River Valley. It’s simply spectacular to see, and the journey is even more memorable when you fly by jet charter to Machu Picchu.
History of Machu PicchuOften called the “Lost City of the Incas”, Machu Picchu was unknown to the world until 1911, when American archaeologist Hiram Bingham visited nearby indigenous farmers and learned of the ancient city’s existence. Bingham went on to bring international attention to this discovery, and today, Machu Picchu is one of the most popular tourist destinations on Earth.
This ancient city was essentially lost to outsiders for one key, fortunate reason. When Spanish conquistadors overran the surrounding area in 1532, as a mission of the Spanish Conquest, they didn’t realize Machu Picchu was there. Although abandoned upon the Conquest, the city is so well-hidden in the Andes that it survived colonization efforts completely untouched.
Most archaeologists believe the Incans constructed Machu Picchu around 1450. The advanced city was likely built as a luxurious estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti. It’s estimated that about 1,200 people could have inhabited the region, but many historians have also concluded that Machu Picchu was mainly used as a private retreat for Incan rulers.
Taking a Trip to Machu Picchu
When you take a private jet charter to Machu Picchu, you have the opportunity to personally see the stunning, advanced architecture developed by the ancient Incan Empire. Machu Picchu is made up of approximately 200 structures, divided into three distinct zones: religious at the top, agricultural at the bottom, and urban in the center. Arguably the most fascinating aspect of this high-mountain city is that these structures intricately blend in with their natural surroundings – a steep ridge, lined with ascending stone terraces.Things to Do Before you can see the city, you’ll have to get there. Your jet charter to Machu Picchu will land you in a nearby Peruvian airport, and from here, you have three main options to reach the ancient ruins:
- Hike the Inca Trail (requires advanced booking). This is the most popular way to reach Machu Picchu from the city of Cuzco. It takes two to five days to hike the trail. Go prepared!
- Hike a different trail. Options include the Salkantay trek and the Choquequirao trek.
- Take a train from Cuzco or Ollantaytambo to the ancient ruins.

We had a great experience thanks to the help of stratos. I will use them again as they were professional and very timely.
WE were told to go to First Aviation Services terminal at Teterboro but our plane was at another terminal so we wasted over 45 minutes trying to find our aircraft and our agent was not at all helpful. In fact he told us someone was coming to pick us up and they never came and we had to find someone to help us get to the terminal our plane was located at. The agent asked us for our rental car info but when we landed in Naples the rental car was not at the terminal and we had to find a ride over to the other side of the air field to get our rental car. The flight was great but the handling of the pre and post flight were below normal and not what I am used to when I fly private.
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.
No changes are needed, we were very pleased.
Sarah and Glen were awesome to work with to make the trip successful.
The whole process was easy and went BETTER than planned. Glenn was my agent and he made sure everything was handled completely and we had no worries. The plane left exactly on time and was an upgrade from the originally chosen plane. The car was waiting when we landed at the hanger and only had a few steps from the plan to the car. We made our appointment as planned and my family was so happy. I recommend Stratos highly.
lower cost flights :)
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
Glenn and the team constantly exceed expectations. Nothing is too much bother. Every detail is taken care of. The crew and operators are always well briefed. Thanks team!
Worked with Glenn and he really worked to find the right plane at the right time! Aircraft crew were professional and courteous. Two great cross country flights.
MY agent did a great job. Due to the immediate nature of the flight, we didn't compare to others but he was very quick to respond.
Joel was a great help in getting my family out of South Florida last minute during hurricane Irma. I look forward to booking with Stratos again in the very near future.
Stratos was so easy to work with. Kerri was so understanding of a couple itinerary changes we had to make to ensure a safe, smooth flight. As our charter ops director, I sincerely appreciate when our customers realize that our decisions are in their best interest. Though not always ideal, we always provide our best option given uncontrollable variables such as weather, winds, etc. Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job. Any feedback you have would be greatly appreciated in return!
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!!!
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,
All members of the team communicated extremely well. I worked with Steve to get my flight booked and he checked in with helpful texts and updates along the way. Highly recommend.
You guys are great. Thanks for your business Haley
Yuri was wonderful!
I look forward to booking again..
Always awesome working with Kerry!
Everything was great with the trip; it was a bit rushed on my part and Danny was a rockstar! He gave me many options and honest and frank feedback and advice. He made me feel like I was the only client he had and was incredibly responsive to all my questions and concerns. Stress-free and relaxing is the best way to summarize my experience. I will always use Stratos and Danny!! thank you to all the team as well!
My wife received treatment for cancer in Tijuana. It wasn’t possible to bring her home on a commercial flight. I reached to several charter services and Kyle at Stratos was so helpful. He immediately responded to my request and answered all my questions. He stayed engaged with us through the entire trip. The next time I need to charter a plane I will only make call. Stratos!! Great experience!!! Phil
Stratos Jet Charters is always professional and easy to work with. I would highly recommend them. They care about their customers and work hard to keep you happy and comfortable the entire flight.
The crew of Citation very good Cordial and effective Trip punctual all good Thanks
We did have a slight issue when the plane came in there was a mechanical concern that delayed my parent's trip but Kyle lined up aother plane for us so they could get to their destination with the least amount of inconvenience. The catering was delicious and the flight back went off without a hitch.
Flight great.. flown Stratos about 10 years... better than what I hear + have experienced thru friends. Professional & responsive. Book it!
Yes I enjoyed it they was very easy to work with and did what they said they were going to. I would recommend to other people

Our experience was magnificent. Everyone at Stratos was on point and helpful with any and all questions we had for our trip. Glenn Walters was exceptional attentive. Your services are highly recommended.
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.
Everything great but itineraries always change last minute (tail #, terminal) which has caused problems.
very pro active, quick to get information and respond to requests, fast wire payment. I wish ALL brokers were this good. Great job team. Joel, you have put together a great group. It was nice working with you, it's been a long time.
None that I can think of. Very Satisfied.
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!
Great partnership and always a pleasure working with your team! We are all looking forward to many more.
This trip was to return home from our 5.5 month winter sojourn in Florida. We had planned everything around this return date. Our cars had been shipped home that day. We had run down all the food. The cancellation occurred when we were out for dinner the night before the planned trip. We therefore did not find out about it until about 10pm. Anthony did a good job of helping with the recovery over the next hour. He responded instantly to almost every email. Unfortunately, because everything for ourselves and our fellow passengers had been planned around leaving on that particular day, we were very limited in our selection of recovery flights. As a result we paid an extra $7k+. Once that was settled and I had figured out how to get the extra money to you quickly enough, things went smoothly. When the flight was first booked (months ago) I had expressed some discomfort with the fact that the plane operator was so small and seemed to be focused on another business model. Anthony said that he had great experience with them and their reliability. It was unfortunate that my concerns turned out to be correct. As things have turned out, it now seems to me that I should be booking my flights right at the last minute, not rely on leaving on a certain date and, perhaps, even trying to catch an empty leg.
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.
Loved everything about our flight, thanks to the unbelievable service from Kerry and Sarah. We were so very pleased with the planning, follow up and service. Do not waste your time or money looking anywhere else. Kerry is a super rock star of customer service. Wow!
Stratos was great and we for sure will recommend our broker to our friends
Timely, efficient customer service, perfectly executed departure and arrival, concierge service no hassle and easy
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.
None, Ricky Gomulka takes care of everything, and I honestly like dealing only with him everytime I call. Very hard working and goes over and beyond for me.
Toilet paper, Pillows and blankets
I was thouroughly impressed with the professionalism of the Broker Joel, the flight organizer Sarah and the crew on both legs. The aircraft was clean, in good shape and right on time. The crew was friendly and professional to me and my guests. Two small issues were getting a tail number on less than 12 hours that made getting our rental cars more complex than necessary and more significant was being notified by our bank that you tried to bill my flight a couple times when I paid in full prior to first leg. All in all I would use them again but would encourage one contact who checks in daily a few days prior to flight rather than me having try to figure out who to call when it looked like a couple problems were coming up.
Dear Joel We had an excellent flight, start to finish! Glad you told me how good that choice would be. Pilot quite impressively; flew at 40,000 feet all the way, zero turbulence. Best plane I have charted. Happy Thanksgiving to you and family, Al
The Executive Car Service setup was a TOTAL disaster and almost ruined my trip. Chris Fink is awesome, but this man in Jersey was an absolute disgrace. Very disappointed with that firm. The crew stellar. Better than outstanding. I was blessed to have them transporting me on thus very important day trip. Chris' follow-up and communication was outstanding. He is Top-Notch.
Garret has provided excellent service and is attentive and easy to work with. The pilots on this trip were EXCEPTIONAL at dealing with our needs and providing service with the passengers needs and schedule. Very high compliments to the whole team for this flight.
