Your guide to winter flying from corporate jet specialists

monmouth-runway.fwWith winter in full swing and transport compromised by snow, storms and ice it is important corporate jet clients know what to expect from charter flights during this challenging season.

Corporate jets can still fly – Due to the fact there are ten times more airport options for charter flights and these pilots can be far more flexible in terms of their flight plan, private jets are often available to fly when commercial airliners aren’t. Safety however, will still be a top priority, but you can be assured flights will only be grounded when all other options are exhausted.

Smaller airports can often cope better with extreme weather – Business jets and charter airplanes are much smaller than commercial airliners, so they can take off and land on far shorter runways. These runways can be cleared much more quickly when a break in the weather occurs and, due to the reduced traffic at these airports, delays are much shorter.

De-icing may affect your flight – but not your budget – All ice has to be removed from an aircraft before it can safely take off and, while this process is faster with smaller aircraft it can still result in delays and increases in the flight cost. Fortunately, charter companies are liable for this cost – not passengers – so you won’t experience a cost increase for your flight.

Stranded? A private jet can help – Extreme winter weather can ground commercial aircraft for days if not weeks, but private jets can start using runways and running safely far more quickly should the weather allow. If you get stranded at an airport and need to get the first flight out possible, a private jet will be able to assist you as quickly as possible.
