Essential Etiquette Tips For Flying By Private Aircraft

Flying by private jet is a truly unique experience and nothing like commercial air travel, and this can leave first-time flyers a little unsure of what is expected of them as guests. Here’s a quick etiquette guide to help you look and feel like an experienced private traveler, and make the trip even better, from Monmouth Executive Airport.

  1. Have your ID documents ready: One of the best things about private air travel is that you have the luxury of skipping all the security lines, but you will still need to identify yourself as the right person on the client list. Your regular ID (driver’s license, for example) is fine for local flights, while international flights will require a valid passport.
  2. Host boards first: If you are travelling as part of a group and a guest of a company or private individual, it’s good manners to let your host board first.
  3. Know your luggage limit: The amount of luggage a private aircraft can carry is dependent on its size, and that means guests have certain baggage restrictions. If you are travelling alone, you can fit the maximum amount of luggage but it’s generally a good idea to pack the minimum advised by the jet company. Soft bags are ideal as they pack easily into the luggage compartment.
  4. Follow pet guidelines: Pets are welcome on private aircraft and are treated just like any other guest on board, but it’s important to speak to your provider and confirm that you will have a pet with you. They will give you advice on how to prepare your pet for travel, and ask you questions about what kind of food and treats they can provide for your furry companion. This makes your trip as special for your pet as it is for you.
  5. Dress the part: While there are no hard and fast rules about dressing for a private flight, it is important to show the appropriate amount of respect for this exclusive service and for your host. Generally, business wear is correct when flying you’re your company, and business-casual is a good default choice for other occasions.
  6. Running late? Let your crew know: Flying by private aircraft means the crew is at your service and ready to go when you are, but it’s polite to keep them informed about your schedule. If something changes, they can react quickly and mobilize crew and airport services to ensure you are in the air as soon as possible after you arrive at the airport.

How to book a private jet

Charter jet rental has become increasingly popular over the last few years for corporate as well as leisure travellers. More affordable than first class tickets, more comfortable than commercial flights and more convenient for passengers who want to avoid traffic, schedules and queues, charter flights offer significant benefits over their commercial counterparts. Here are some great tips for ensuring your private jet experience is as enjoyable as possible.

1. Choose the right aircraft: There is a wide range of aircraft for hire in the charter industry and knowing which plane will suit your needs is essential to a comfortable flight. In addition to smaller jets which seat up to seven passengers, there are mid and large size jets ideal for carrying larger parties and going longer distances without refueling – saving you valuable time. Your destination and the number of guests you will be flying with are the most important factors, but be sure to remember other requirements such as particular seating arrangements, privacy and storage as well.
2. Use a broker: Brokers work with charter companies to negotiate the best deal on your behalf, balancing luxury with affordability. They can assist you with choosing a reputable company and selecting the correct aircraft for your trip, as well as ensuring your travel arrangements run smoothly.
3. Be flexible: Although it’s not always possible (and one of the benefits of private travel is their ability to fit to your schedule and not the other way around), it is a good idea to be flexible with your travel times. Flying with short notice on empty leg flights can save you thousands of dollars without sacrificing any of the comforts that come with private travel.
4. Be specific: If you are travelling with children, have pets or have special needs (including mobility requirements) be sure to inform your broker or charter flight service as to exactly what you require. This will ensure the crew is fully informed of your needs and ready to deliver all the assistance you require with the utmost professionalism and friendly service.
5. Know your airport: Charter services are able to utilize smaller, private airports which allow them to deliver quick turnaround times and bypass the hustle and traffic of large airports. These airports are designed with private travellers in mind, offering high-class amenities as well as executive travel and parking services.

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.

If you are considering flying out of New Jersey via charter jet, Monmouth Executive Airport offers everything business and private travellers require. For charter companies, we offer high quality, competitively priced rates, fuel and hangar space in New Jersey, we offer you and your clients an exceptional flying experience.
