Whether you’re travelling for business or for pleasure, what could be more luxurious than chartering a private jet? It may seem extravagant but in fact, it can have many advantages over first-class travel on a commercial airline, making it well worth the ticket price. A price that, incidentally, may not be as high as you might think.

Here are some of the reasons why you should forget about first-class air travel and fly privately instead.

Save Time

One of the key advantages of flying privately is that you don’t have to stick to a flight schedule, unlike when you’re flying with a commercial airline. You can fly straight to your intended destination without any stops or transfers, saving you time and disrupting very little of the working day.

This is something that’s very valuable when travelling for business –  as they say, time is money. Plus, if you’re running late, you can rest assured that your private jet will be waiting patiently for you to arrive.

Skip the Queues

Another time-saver when chartering a private jet is that you can skip the waiting around in airports that is synonymous with air travel. You can skip the check-in and the security checks and your luggage stays with you, so no more waiting around to collect your bags.


Whether you enjoy peace and quiet away from other noisy passengers or you need privacy to discuss confidential business, chartering a private jet is the perfect solution.

It’s ideal if you have a group of colleagues travelling to an international business meeting as the journey can be used to work and discuss strategies openly, without the risk of anyone overhearing.

More than 20% of people who fly privately for business have said that they feel more productive than if they’re travelling on a commercial airline, so even a seat in first class can’t compare to chartering a private jet.

Cheaper than You Might Think

A private jet charter does not necessarily have to cost you a fortune and when done sensibly, it could cost you around the same as buying a first-class ticket on a commercial airline, especially if it’s a group that’s travelling.

Take a look at empty leg flights, like the ones offered at Victor, and you could save up to 75% on what it normally costs to charter a private jet. This is because the jet has already been booked for a one-way flight, leaving the aircraft empty on its flight back to the previous destination. So, airlines offer attractive prices to fill these empty leg flights.

Forget about first-class flying – you should consider chartering a private jet instead for a quicker, more efficient and more peaceful way to travel.
