Every aspect was professional, courteous, and reliable.
we are pleased with the pricing and servicing we are getting
Always great to work with you guys.
We decided at the last minute to escape from Florida as hurricane Irma was bearing down on us, and Stratos came through for us. Despite our first choice airport running out of fuel, they managed to get some at another and we got out with about 1 hour to spare. It was a hectic time, with everyone else scrambling to escape, but Stratos made the whole experience simple and efficient for us. We will definitely fly with them another time, preferable when we're not all stressed about a hurricane aimed right at us!
Great partnership and always a pleasure working with your team! We are all looking forward to many more.
The Team at Stratos arranged another great flight for our family. We had a great Lear 45 with a brand new interior! The pilots could not have been kinder and sweeter with our boys and the entire journey was totally seamless. If you are considering Charter you are missing out if you are not using Stratos- THE BEST SAFETY, SERVICE & PRICE value combination- period! Thank you Stratos Team again.
the flight and service was great.
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.
The process was easy; plane, limo, pilots and boarding went smoothly
Would definitely recommend to friends! Joel went above and beyond to get us home after hurricane Irma came through Florida! Joel was in a lot of communication with us due to the high air traffic that day! Can't wait to go through Stratos jets again!
I will recommend Stratos and will give them Randy name/number, he was very professional, on the ball in all aspects!!!!! I had contacted 4 other companies - Randy was the best, that is why we went with Stratos .
Heather was an important part of my chose in Stratos.
Very professional, very knowledgeable - truly care about their clients. Stratos is always very good to work with. When one of their requests come in we know we will be treated equitably, politely, and professionally, as the Operator. The Stratos team is always friendly and thorough. The Stratos Guests are always very good to our Flight Crews, which we appreciate very much. I would highly recommend Stratos Jet Charters. Malachi Mountain Aviation.
I look forward to booking again..
Excellent Customer Service booking and during the flight!
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.
Thanks for the great service again Kyle!
Joel and his staff made a family loss so much easier to deal with. They are like family and they have my business whenever I need it and they’re available.
Its always a pleasure to work with Mark and Stratos!
Thanks to Kerry for helping us get to where we need to be ! Very detail oriented company. Pilot's were very professional. See you next time!
Working together with Stratosjets felt like working with my own team - very friendly and coorperative employees - loyal and trustworthy team - thanks a lot!
Probably the best charter experience I have ever had. Zach really came through for me when I was in a bind. Thanks Zach and keep up the good work.
Recently booked a jet for 11 people from my organization to continue operations during hurricane Irma. As business owners know, operations do not cease during a disaster and customers must continue to be served. Stratos Jet Charters booked the aircraft we needed within an hour of reaching out. Our team was able to continue business operations in NYC seamlessly. Much appreciation to Joel and his team for fast action!
Garett is the best!
I will definitely use Stratos Jets again and will recommend the company without hesitation. It has been several years since I have chartered a jet and this process was very easy and friendly.
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.
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.
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!
As always, the folks at Stratos Jet Charters did an outstanding job responding to a short-notice requirement for supplemental lift for our flight department. Their staff is always focused on the customer needs and preferences. Through their proven performance, they have become my "go-to" solution when the need arises.
Joel Thomas and his great team at Stratos makes booking a private charter easy. They keep in contact with you from the start right through to after the flight, which gives my travelers a piece of mind. Everything is always exactly planned to our specifications. Stratos really goes above and beyond in their industry - they are simply the best at what they do.
Very Professional! Top notch aircraft and crew. Will certainly be using Stratos in the future!!
They were the only ones able to book our last minute flight to the Masters. We decided to go Saturday night and they made it happen Including arranging ground transport and picking up our tickets for us. Thank You!!

Joel was extraordinary in helping me with options when a connecting flight was cancelled and I had to scramble to get to my destination on time. He was available late into the evening to help me and ultimately I made my appointment.
Great service. Responsive and thorough.
Joel was a delight to work with arranging our flight from IRMA. Very professional and accommodating. I would definitely use him and your company again and refer others to you. The flight was fantastic with very nice pilots, James Briggs and Thomas Sommers. We were not the typical passengers as my husband has Alzheimer's and is wheelchair bound. Thanks for everything!!!
Good flight. Thanks for the trip.
There are not enough words to express how incredible Stratos is. From start to finish, my experiences with them are the highest quality of service and performance.
Always great teamwork
Your whole operation is responsive and attentive, always good to deal with them
As always, we enjoy working with you all. We all strive to accommodate the clients needs as best as possible, on our end and your end. Looking forward to many more trips with you all in the future.
Glenn and his team at Stratos were amazing. Unfortunately, the operator provided last minute communication of a delay that caused problems on the arriving end of the flight. The operator was aware of the delay the night before and failed to inform Glenn (and in turn, me). The drive from the San Jose, CR airport to my final destination was incredibly dangerous due to my having to drive at night. The stress of travel was significant to begin with. The poor communication and the delay into the final destination caused another whole level of stress which is understood when you travel commercially, but not when you spend $17K on a private jet charter.
Thanks for everything Joel... You made the booking process quite easy and were very patient in explaining everything. I appreciate all your help and I will definitely pass your contact information to all my co-workers in case they ever have a request for a jet booking.
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.
We were very pleased with every aspect of our Stratos experience. Booking, follow-up, communication, and of course the flight itself.
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
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
