"No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem!" First time Jet Charter flyers discover ease of private jet charter
Saturday 3, July 2010
Charter Auction has seen rapid growth this year from wealthy former airline passengers discovering private jet charter.
Never before has flying been so effortless. Waiting in lines all day and dealing with commercial airline cancellations can be one of the most costly and ineffective manors of business and leisure air travel. Charter Auction has created a system that avoids delays and makes it possible for businesses and the affluent to fly effectively and affordably.
The process is simple. Private jet passengers drive to exclusive charter terminals which are available at all major airports and many smaller, regional airports. Private jet terminals are much faster and easier to process through than a commercial terminal. Private jet terminals typically do not have Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personal, scanners or any type of waiting lines which always amazes first time private jet passengers. The captain of the aircraft will generally ask for identification from the lead passenger and that's it! Prior to departure all passenger names are required and put through the TSA's safety and security check which we process for you as required by law. More information may be required for international travel, but this information can be processed before the trip departure, keeping travel easy for private jet passengers.
"First time private jet passengers are usually astounded at how easy it really is. It's just like a Hollywood movie. You drive up to the plane, board, and take off. Imagine the time people can save by utilizing private charter. What would once take a businessman five days using commercial airlines, can now be done in a single day. Fly from New York City to Miami, have a business meeting and fly back to see your son or daughters first basketball game! It's remarkable," says Kenneth Taplin, Trip Support Manager at Charter Auction.
Charter Auction has seen a large increase of requests from people who have never flown on a private jet before. Charter Auction handles all details of the jet charter from catering onboard the private aircraft to a background check of the crew and operator of the jet aircraft. Charter Auction has seen the largest increase of inquires from Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket via NBTA and ASTA associations.
Charter Auctions aircraft locater technology can identify "empty legs" or "one-ways" which offer the passengers a savings from high-priced jet travel cards that have been popular lately. Jet travel cards have a fixed rate per hour that is approximately $3,500-$5,500, per flight hour. At Charter Auction private jet operators simply bid on your travel requests and prices are normally 20-50% below jet travel cards. Travelers expecting pricing of private jet charter similar to airline fares will be disappointed, but if ease of travel, no waiting in lines, depart and return when you want is what you're looking for, you will love Charter Auction.
