It’s that time of the year again! Private aviation travel peaks from Thanksgiving through the second week of January with an estimated 90% of private jet travelers travelling at least once during this period. Private air charter requests are already on the rise and will increase over 70%.
Come snow or sun, here’s how to go about booking your holiday private air travel:
- Book your flight early. During the winter months, the FAA requires us to reserve airport slots for your departures and arrivals for Aspen, Eagle, Rifle and other mountain airports. The increase in demand means that landing slots at these popular destinations will become limited.
- Be flexible. You can avoid extra costs or the need for a landing slot by choosing smaller airports over busy ones such as Los Angeles International (LAX), New York John F. Kennedy International (JFK), and Chicago O’Hare (ORD). Also, you can increase the number of flights available to you by being flexible with your choice of aircraft .
- Choose the right provider. Anyone can be a jet charter broker so it’s important to ask the right questions before you sign a contract. An experienced broker is well versed on weather tracking, airport delays, pilot experience and knows how to find the right flight operators that prioritize safety and make sure that their aircraft are well maintained.
