INTERESTING FACTS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT PRIVATE JETS

Private jets are part of a very interesting industry. Here are some surprising facts about this luxurious mode of travel, from Monmouth Executive Airport in New Jersey.

  1. The USA is the private jet capital of the world: Recent statistics show that the US makes up around 49.7% of all private jet flights in the whole world, with Europe and Asia Pacific following up with 20.6% and 11.6% respectively.
  2. Cessna has the most popular private jet: The iconic Cessna Citation Excel, also known as the Citation XLS and XLS+, is the most popular private jet in the USA. Not only is it a striking and elegant piece of engineering, it also has great range at around 2,100nm, can take 9 passengers in luxurious comfort and has a load capacity of over 7,000lbs.
  3. Private jets love the Superbowl: Of all big events, including the Kentucky Derby and the Monaco Grand Prix, the Superbowl is the most travelled-to event for private jets – in the entire world. Even more impressive is that around 50% of this private jet traffic comes from international travelers who want to experience the legendary event and the famous half-time show.
  4. Celebs love to be pilots as well as passengers: For many A-listers, travelling in a private jet is the only way to go. For a few, however, the thrill is in piloting their own aircraft. This list of celebrities includes John Travolta, who has an astounding 11 jets, as well as Tom Cruise, in his Gulfstream IV.
  5. The world’s most expensive private jet costs over $500 million: Owned by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud, this jet is a modified Airbus A380. It features a two-car garage and a stable as well as many other high-end luxury fittings.
  6. Private jets have access to more airports: While commercial airliners can take you to any of the 500 commercial airports across the USA, private jets can take off and land from over 5,000 airports – including all the large commercial ones. This means greater flight flexibility, easier flights past inclement weather and easier access to more cities and towns for passengers.

Your guide to jet charter costs and what they really mean

BLM_picUnlike commercial flights, whose rates are calculated primarily on a per passenger basis, jet charter costs are based on a very different set of criteria. If you’re planning to charter a private jet or aircraft, it’s important to know how these prices are calculated in order to ensure you, your guests and/or clients are getting a value for money service.

  • Choice of aircraft – This is a significant factor in costing a charter flight as you will be hiring the entire aircraft and crew rather than booking a per passenger ticket. The type, size and exclusivity of the aircraft will determine the hourly rate the operator or owner will quote you.
  • Flight distance – Charters are calculated using hourly rates so the further you fly, the higher the cost. While most aircraft are available for shorter flights, longer flights may require you to charter specific jets to ensure you arrive quickly and safely without fuel stops.
  • Crew – Depending on the aircraft you hire, you may have two or more pilots, flight attendants and support crew on board and this expense is worked into the final charter cost.
  • Passenger fees – Every country has a different approach to charter flights and some require passengers to pay a levy or tax for landing in the country. These fees may vary significantly depending on your destination.
  • Airport landing fees – These are set individually by each airport according to the weight of the aircraft you hire and can vary significantly depending on your destination.
  • Handling fees – Once on the ground, charter aircraft have to be managed through FBO services. This includes refueling, sanitation, executive travel and parking services, catering and so forth and will vary from airport to airport.

Your first trip on a corporate jet? Here’s what to expect

Jet Fuel From TobaccoYour first trip on a private charter or corporate jet should be an exciting and fulfilling experience – and knowing the rules for jet etiquette will help enhance every aspect of your journey. While the rules for commercial airliner travel are fairly well known and are getting stricter and less flexible every year, rules for corporate and charter jets are a bit different. Here’s a brief guide from Monmouth Executive Airport on the do’s and don’ts of exclusive travel:

  • Dress appropriately – For corporate trips, business wear is ideal, but for leisure trips a more casual look is ideal. After all, this experience is all about travelling in comfort.
  • Let your host board first – If you’re a guest, this is the best way to board the aircraft. It gives your host a chance to point out amenities, introduce you to staff and ensures you don’t sit in his or her preferred seat.
  • Keep devices on – Staying in contact is integral to the private jet experience. You can take or make calls, browse online, check email and host conferences as you would in the office.
  • Talk to staff – Want particular music, a movie or something to drink? Let the staff know – they are there to look after you and make your experience as comfortable as possible.
  • Got pets? – Pets are welcome inside the cabin, but it’s best to ensure your animals are properly groomed beforehand to ensure that upholstery stays clean.
  • Got questions? – If you want to speak to the staff or the pilots, don’t hesitate to do so. The cockpit door stays open, so you can visit the flight deck at any time. Even if you don’t have questions, the view is always something to remember.
  • Relax – Sit back and enjoy yourself, the staff are there to carry your bags, properly stow them and look after all the needs of you and the other passengers, so you can absorb the private jet experience.

At Monmouth Executive Airport, your private jet experience begins long before you takeoff. With our exclusive services for private charter companies and convenient location in New Jersey, we’re able to ideally meet the needs of the private flyer. With attractive leasing options, ample airplane hangar space, fuel and executive travel and parking services, we’re providing world-class amenities from the moment you arrive.

How business jets and charter flights accommodate disabled and mobility impaired passengers

Monmouth Executive Airport - Old GLoryFlying on private business jets can be summed up under one philosophy: meeting your needs, whatever they are. This extends to everything from dietary requests and in-flight Internet connectivity to strictly customized flight schedules and flexibility. For passengers who are disabled or mobility impaired, similar dedication is taken in order to meet your needs. This results in an experience which far surpasses what commercial airliners are able to provide.

  • The boarding procedure: When boarding a private jet, the process is simplified for convenience. With executive travel and parking services, passengers are driven directly to the airplane’s steps and can undergo the security procedures, including the security scan, without leaving the car. Staff will be available if any assistance is required and passengers are able to embark at their own pace.
  • The travel experience: Depending on the type of jet, the configuration of seats and storage will differ. However, unlike the one-size-fits-all commercial airliner experience, many jets can easily accommodate wheelchairs and other mobility equipment in the cabin for easy access. With plenty of extra legroom, comfortable seating and secure car-seat style seatbelts, you will be able to get in and out of your seat with complete ease. As always, staff will be on hand to provide any additional assistance.
  • Additional services: Private charters can also easily accommodate services for anyone with more serious physical needs, for example, medical equipment, oxygen tanks and on-site medical assistance.

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.

At Monmouth Executive Airport, we provide exceptional facilities for charter companies and their clients, from affordable fuel and hangar space in New Jersey to executive parking, concierge, restaurant and travel services.
