How do charter flights work?
When chartering a flight, you have exclusive use of the aircraft, thus giving you the freedom to choose your own itinerary and destination. A private charter flight can travel to almost any location as long as there is a landing strip. So consider private jet hire as a viable option for a special occasion or unique holiday experience.
Is private jet hire expensive?
Charter flights are certainly more expensive than a commercial airline, however if you are travelling with a small group you can share the associated costs. If you weigh up all the pros and cons and consider the amount of time wasted in queues, check-ins and departure lounges. Not to mention lengthy flight delays and the current health risks associated with airports during the COVID-19 pandemic, private jet hire can be well worth your investment for that special occasion to run safely and smoothly.
COVID-19 and private jet hire:
With current border restrictions in place, passengers still require permits to cross borders, however regional travel within your own state is still permitted in most areas. When you hire a private jet, aircrafts are thoroughly cleaned and pilots and passengers are equipped with protective equipment.
Australian charter company Air Charter Service comments that “cleanliness is paramount and each flight is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized and pilots are supplied with masks and gloves on every flight, as are our guests fitted with masks on board.”
How many people can fly on a private jet hire aircraft?
Depending on the nature of your trip the aircraft used will depend on the number of passengers. Light aircraft will handle 1-5 passengers then mid to heavy jets are utilised for up to 16 passengers.
How long can I stay when chartering a flight?
There are many options available with private charters. As journeys are tailored to the individual’s travel needs, you can stay as little or as long as you like. Keep in mind for a private jet hire, that an aircraft will need to return to its home base, so you will pay additional fees for parking and pilot accommodation for stays longer than the same day turn around.
Chartering a jet for a special occasion
Turn your celebration into an unforgettable experience, one you will reminisce about for a lifetime. Private jet hire is the perfect solution for a special anniversary or a milestone birthday, bringing your close friends and family together to celebrate in style.

In light of the current coronavirus pandemic, by chartering a private jet you avoid crowded airports, have control over passengers that travel alongside you, the itinerary and destination including the need for stopovers is in your hands, thus greatly minimising exposure and the health risks associated with travelling for you and your loved ones.
Why do many businesses prefer private jet hire?
Time is valuable especially for corporate companies. Business travellers often spend many hours travelling interstate. With private jet hire significant time is saved bypassing copious airport procedures and avoiding schedule delays that are often experienced by commercial airlines. Charter flights are direct rather than via a hub, saving precious time.
With the current coronavirus pandemic, private jet hire is an excellent alternative to minimise and mitigate the risk of infection thus keeping your team healthy and able to continue working and travelling.
With larger cabin interiors and a significantly quieter environment, corporate travellers can utilise flying time to work independently whilst in the air. Charter flights are an excellent way to save otherwise lost commuting time.
Employers can be assured their team will arrive on time to meetings and reduce the health risks associated with commercial air travel.
FlightCharter.com.au points out that “Many corporations are now imposing bans on domestic air travel using airlines. However, private air travel is a real alternative because of the control and management of the environment that can be implemented.”
