Private Air Charter: Mile for mile, private jet travel is more expensive than a first-class commercial airline ticket. But what value do you place on your time, comfort and convenience? Add to the cost of your airline ticket the time spent driving to a major airport, going through security, waiting to board, sitting on the tarmac, changing planes in another city, flying to your final destination and staying overnight in yet another hotel room because there are no same-day return flights available. With all the wasted time and additional financial and physical tolls associated with traditional airline travel, the cost of flying privately has become a very real option for many travelers.
With so many available private aviation choices, how do you determine which one will maximize your dollar without compromising on safety and service? One company transforming the way people fly privately is Bombardier Skyjet. Pioneering real-time online booking for private jets since 1997, Bombardier Skyjet has focused their efforts on making private jet travel simple, enjoyable and cost-effective -- providing a safe and pleasant travel experience, top value for your dollar, and the highest level of customer service. Today, Skyjet offers the flexible Skyjet Card or convenient On-Demand Charter service.
Instead of wasting time shopping for value and safety, let the experts do it for you. Based on your criteria, the Skyjet team will search their network database of pre-qualified operators for the best value and aircraft to fit your schedule.
The Skyjet Card
If you fly more than 3 trips a year, you may want to consider the hassle-free Skyjet Card. You can choose from the Elite Program, offering travel on newer aircraft, or the cost-efficient Value Program. No need to pre-select an aircraft size or deal with upgrades and downgrades when you need a larger or smaller jet. Simply select the program you want to use for your flight and which aircraft size you need. No matter which program you choose, you have 24/7 access to the aircraft of your choice. Your deposit may be replenished as funds are used and your membership never expires. Any unused monies are 100% refundable.
Skyjet's aircraft and operator requirements go above and beyond competing programs. There are approximately 5,000 aircraft in the entire U.S. business jet fleet, but only 20% of those meet Skyjet's safety standards.
To be considered eligible for the Skyjet network, an operator must pass a stringent safety audit conducted by a top aviation auditor such as ARG/US or Wyvern. Skyjet is the only major national jet card program that requires an impartial third-party on-site audit. These audits go beyond what is required by the Federal Aviation Administration to earn an FAA Part 135 commercial operator certificate. Skyjet has developed additional crew requirements that all operators in the Skyjet Network must meet. These include minimum logged pilot hours and minimum requirements for logged hours aircraft type, as well as FAA approved annual recurrent simulator training and testing.
As a Skyjet member, you are assigned a dedicated personal travel concierge - a highly-skilled customer service expert who is available to you around-the-clock.
Your concierge will reserve your flights, arrange for catering and ground transportation, answer any questions you may have and take care of every trip detail. You can also use the online real-time reservation system to make all of your travel arrangements.
Private jet travel has truly evolved into an amazing tool for the serious traveler. So if you are tired of the airlines and ready to experience a higher level of service and convenience, try Bombardier Skyjet.
