Machu Picchu Jet Charter Information

Jet Charter to Machu PicchuWant 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 Picchu

Often 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.
Although there are many interesting sites to visit in Machu Picchu, three significant locations are most popular: the Intihuatana, the Temple of the Sun, and the Temple of the Three Windows. All three structures reside in the Sacred District of Machu Picchu, as named by modern archaeologists. The Intihuatana is a large ritual stone at the summit of the city. Literally “the hitching post of the sun”, this stone was placed by the Incans to work as a sun dial. Archaeologists speculate that it was used to study astronomy and to calculate the passage of time. Although every Incan city would have had a similar sun-dial stone, the Intihuatana is the only one to have survived the Spanish Conquest. Together with the Temple of the Three Windows, the Temple of the Sun represents the most refined architecture created by the Incans. Gigantic polyhedrons were carved and arranged so precisely that any error comes only within less than a millimeter.

Popular Things to Do in Machu Picchu

Because the Incan ruins are such a popular tourist destination, it’s crucial to arrange your jet charter to Machu Picchu well in advance of your actual flight. Stratos Jet Charters can prepare private flights with as little as four hours’ notice, but we know that Machu Picchu is one of the toughest global attractions to just drop in on. Call us earlier than later at (888) 593-9066, and make sure your jet charter to Machu Picchu is a seamless, hassle-free experience. This is important because in July 2011, the Dirección Desconcentrada de Cultura de Cusco (DRC) decided that in order to protect the ancient ruins from drowning in tourists, only 2,500 visitors per day would be allowed to enter the citadel of Machu Picchu. Even more restricted is the entrance to Huayna Picchu (within the citadel), open to only 400 visitors per day at only two set times, 7am and 10am. Currently, the city is most visited from June through August, typically between 10am and 2pm. During this high season, at least 2,500 people visit Machu Picchu on a daily basis. To provide a hassle-free trip, Stratos Jet Charters offers a full-service concierge that can handle all your travel requirements, such as purchasing your tickets to the citadel in advance, arranging luxury ground transportation for you and your party, making hotel and restaurant reservations, prepping in-flight catering, and so much more. When taking a jet charter to Machu Picchu, the closest airport is the Teniente Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport (CUZ), which is located in Cuzco, the main access point to Machu Picchu. Our private flight advisors at Stratos Jet Charters know how to deliver the best jet aircraft for your trip, always at the most competitive jet charter prices available.

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

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 05/03/2021

Randy was so helpful during my scheduling of this trip and kept me informed. I will recommend Randy to all of our associates. Thank you for your service

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 05/14/2024

Kyle and the entire Stratos team's coordination and communication is top notch and we look forward to working with you all again!

5 1 5 01/01/2022

Great customer service!

5 1 5 06/15/2023

Stratos is always a pleasure to work with! Only comment is sometimes the way you send emails is something the manage. Seems like we get a bunch of separate emails for the same trip. Could be the system! Not a biggie. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to assist you!

5 1 5 01/04/2024

The flight itself was fine. Glenn was in communication with me frequently but shortly before my flight the Tail Number changed to a new plane and I was not given a new itinerary with the correct arrival point. We flew into Modern Aviation but I expected to be a Hawthorne Aviation. My ride was at the wrong location and I had to adjust that myself after landing. She was livid at the lack of notification on the change. It wasn't a pleasant ride home.

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 07/24/2012

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

5 1 5 10/14/2021

You guys are great to work with!

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!

5 1 5 07/09/2018

Very Professional! Top notch aircraft and crew. Will certainly be using Stratos in the future!!

5 1 5 02/21/2024

Daniel was the most efficient and communicative individual our firm has ever dealt with while in a crunch situation needing to get to Vegas immediately from Salt Lake. He went above and beyond to assess our needs and ensure our timeline was met. If we had a position on our sales team we would offer him a better offer then what you’re paying him and may in the future. Thanks Daniel. Hope to connect soon for our future trips. Garrett

5 1 5 11/01/2023

Probably to save on hotels for crew (Wisconsin would be cheaper than Toronto). Weather did not cooperate so cost us half an hour. Not the end of the world, but still an annoyance that could have been avoided.

5 1 5 01/28/2022

Always a pleasure to work with the friendly staff. The communication is concise and timely. Looking forward to future bookings!

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 06/22/2020

Nice, easy and prompt communication. Pleasure working with your team

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 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 05/27/2014

lower cost flights :)

5 1 5 09/29/2017

Eric Bold and Stratos Jets came to the rescue this week whilst I was trying to evacuate friends and families from Puerto Rico during the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.  Eric was beyond helpful and always courteous.  He was quick to find an aircraft within my budget and stayed in contact with me at every point during our transaction to update me on all matters concerning our trip.  I would highly recommend Stratos Jets to anyone and I look forward to working with them on our next trip.
Thanks again for everything!

The low approach over Newport was terrific....CAD even stopped talking. Have a nice w/e....David

5 1 5 07/13/2021

Everything from booking to flying to ground transport was taken care of. Stratos made our golf trip amazing!

5 1 5 06/19/2017

Since day one, Joel and his team have been providing us with great customer service and always meet or exceed our needs. They are impeccable in their constant communication, which includes everything from quotes to flight status, and all in between. They are very accommodating to all requests, even the last minute ones. Sarah with trip support has carefully and flawlessly helped with all requested travel arrangements, from car rental to car service. It is hard to find a company these days that is genuine and understands the importance of truly great customer service, and this company and all members of the team, have this! It is very refreshing. I would recommend this company to anyone who has ever thought about trying Jet Charters or has done so for years, it will be a change for the best!

5 1 5 09/24/2020

Great rep!

5 1 5 07/03/2019

We truly value our relationship with Stratos Jets and appreciate their business. They are organized and communicate well making sure all of the trips we do together happen seamlessly. We look forward to a long lasting relationship, thank you again for selecting our team and aircraft for your clients!

5 1 5 06/28/2021

From the first quote and phone call to departing the plane and follow up, service was outstanding! Frank (our point of contact) saw to every question and requirement we had with professionalism, courteousness, and speed. I am very used to hiccups and miscommunications when traveling, but with this trip there were absolutely none. The flight crew was friendly, accommodating, and very good at what they do. The flight was probably the smoothest I've ever had. I know that depends on a lot of factors, but it definitely added to the experience. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and use Stratos Jets in the future.

5 1 5 05/07/2022

After our plane developed mechanical problems and a night of discomfort and doubt, Kyle was able to find a plane and a crew at last minute to save my wife's 60th birthday trip. We arrived a little late but we arrived! You are the best Kyle.

5 1 5 12/27/2016

As a several time repeat customer, I highly recommend Stratos!

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 10/10/2020

Glenn like usual is great to work with and is always on top of it.

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 04/07/2021

Always a pleasure to work with Steve!

5 1 5 12/21/2021

Transparant, smooth, easy working with the entire team

5 1 5 10/28/2020

Hassle free travel! Everyone is helpful an kind.

5 1 5 06/08/2021

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

5 1 5 08/10/2020

I wanted to thank you for making the arrangements for my trip up north on 7/29/20 & the return flight yesterday with Tyler et all to Orlando. Everyone was very polite, timely, and helpful and we felt completely safe & comfortable traveling with Stratos Jet Charters.

Wishing you well & grateful for a wonderful alternative for traveling.

5 1 5 12/20/2019

Enjoyed flight; booking easy; would gladly recommend Stratos

5 1 5 03/27/2024

I've had 3 round trips with Stratos and except for a little fog on one leg everything was always great! The pilots were all awesome! StratosJets is a very dedicated company to make sure everything is safe and sound.

5 1 5 02/17/2018

Two thumbs up!

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Ditto!

5 1 5 11/22/2019

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

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 05/31/2020

Kyle Jones was terrific about answering all of my questions PROMPTLY. Stratos gave us the best price and was best about getting all info to us. I wrote to Kyle many times as I was extremely nervous about flying. He was always reassuring. Pilots were friendly and professional. Transport people wore masks and gloves and were kind. Plane was very clean and when I asked for more disinfectant wipes, I got them without being made to feel I was being too cautious. Take-off and landing were a pleasure as was the flight. The thunderstorm was scary but that was out of the pilots control

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 04/13/2017

We love Joel!

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 01/19/2018

Worked with Kerry Hill and as always, she delivered excellent service. First date departure had to be delayed due to a mechanical issue with the aircraft and she kept me well informed. When the revised departure date came, she worked continuously to get a hangar for the aircraft in order to help avoid costly de-icing then next morning. Can't say enough good things about Kerry and Stratos Jet!

5 1 5 10/06/2017

I was frantically looking last minute for a private jet to transport myself and a family member with early onset memory loss from Minneapolis, MN to Keene, NH. I found Stratos Jet Charters online and they caught my eye. From the first phone call to Eric Bold, the broker, to the landing in Keene, NH, I was completely amazed at how easy it was to book the flight and get the details in order. Eric was super sharp and made the entire booking simple and fast in a very professional way. He was also totally available by phone immediately when I needed to talk with him. Sarah, also, helped us with catering and the passenger manifesto and she was just as competent. The pilots, Jeff and Deanna, made us feel very secure and confident about the flight and our comfort. I feel so fortunate to have found this company and will reach out to them for all of my future private jet needs. Thank you, each of you, and thank you, Stratos!!
