Why fly through Aircharter.com?

Why fly through Aircharter.com instead of going directly to an aircraft owner or operator? Most customers believe that going to the source is always the best way to do business, but in private jet charter, the game is very different. Going to an aircraft owner or operator never means you will be getting the best price. We at Aircharter.com have developed years of bonds with our aircraft owners and operators in order to receive the best possible service and pricing. Very often, you will be paying the exact same figure, but with a great deal of extra effort. It is never enough to have one option, here at aircharter.com, we make sure that any live trip, no matter how large always has at least 3 different aircraft options, in case of mechanical failure, there will always be a backup aircraft. Though this backup aircraft may be more pricey than the first option, it will at least make sure you are always home on time. Booking directly with the aircraft owner instantly locks you into a contract, meaning any flight changes will very likely be billed, and in case of any sort of mechanical issue with the aircraft, you will be stuck with no options in sight besides a few suggestions from the aircraft owner of other nearby aircraft of the same calibre, but when it comes to last minute bookings (under 6 hours) it has been shown that availability drops to about 2-3% at a national level, meaning you would need to call about 50 different aircraft owners or operators to get at least 1 available aircraft. Needles to say said aircraft will cost an arm and a leg due to the near-zero notice given

Private Jet Prices

Private Jet Prices Many people wonder what are the costs of owning or chartering a private jet. Very few people realise that the cost of ownership for a private jet is not only a one time payment, but a challenge. Upkeep costs, parking, registration, fuel costs, refurbishment costs, and of course mechanical upkeep can be valued at hundreds of thousand dollars a year, and can quickly pile up. Below we will explain a few different scenarios by giving real world examples of three different private jet prices. Firstly, let’s look at a lear 40. A light jet well known for its range, a great jet to own. The lear 40 usually is configured for 7 or 8 passengers and is quite comfortable to fly in, and is known for being quite mechanically stable. Many prefer the lear 35A but the lear 35 has been discontinued for 10 years now, buying a new jet is no longer possible. A new Learjet 40 costs approximately $9.5 Million. Where as chartering one costs approximately $2900 an hour to charter. Lets remove the cost of fuel, because a private owner would have to pay for fuel. Fuel comes to approximately $700 an hour, leaving us with a $2200 an hour cost. A flat calculation tells us if one were to fly more than 4318 hours, buying the Learjet 40 would be a better option. But realistically, even then, a frequent flyer with an average of two hours of flight per day, everyday, would mean the accumulation of those flight hours would take nearly 24 years. No private owner would keep a jet for 24 years, and even if they did, maintenance costs over 24 years would be something very

Charter Flights to Cuba

Cuba is a very popular international charter destination, and chartered flights to Cuba are becoming more and more popular. For sure some of this is based on the principle of forbidden fruit, and some people are interested simply because our government makes it virtually impracticable for most American citizens to visit the Caribbean island. However, much of it is Cuba’s legitimate appeal, be it cultural, natural, musical or historical, and for a variety of reasons, there is a sizeable audience of Americans who would like to visit Cuba. Now you can. Although the Cuban government permits US citizens to visit, the US Government restricts its citizens from traveling there except under some circumstances in which a license is required. This type of license splits into two categories: ·        General license: No paperwork needed, and applies to the following: 1.      Person on a government related business trip. 2.    Professional journalist on an assignment. 3.    Person visiting close family of Cuban nationality. 4.    Full-time professionals conducting researcher on official business trips. ·        Specific license: Requires paperwork and Department of state approval. This license may be granted under the following: 1.      Full time graduate students conducting academic research towards graduation. 2.    Individuals Engaging in humanitarian projects. 3.    self-employed journalists. 4.    People engaging in religious activities. 5.     Persons visiting close family in Cuba who are not Cuba nationals. 6.    US academic professional that teach in US institutions. 7.     Persons involving non-profit cultural exhibition. 8.    Individuals are participating in a study abroad program that is at least for 10 weeks or longer. With a license of such that can be issued by department of treasury, a US citizen can travel to Cuba with no issue. However, there are still complications due

Fastest Private Jets

Every business traveller wants to know the fastest private plane available for their trip. When time is of the essence, price is often unimportant when you have multiple meetings during the same day. No VIP traveller wants to be on an aircraft for the majority of the day, so here are some options we have gathered for you. These are the best and fastest private jets on the market. The first private jet that comes to mind is of course the: Citation X The Citation X is marketed as the worlds fastest private jet, and it is. As a mid sized jet, the Citation X carries 7 to 12 passengers at a cruising speed of Mach 0.92 (700 mph) It's interior is very comfortable for a jet of this size and speed. With a range of 3200 nm and the ability to take off from a runway of 5,140 feet, it works great for small or large domestic flights. This allows you almost every single pair of cities in the United States. Of course longer flights such as Maine to California will be slightly outside of it's range. The Citation X is the fastest private jet, but a 30-40 minute refuelling stop may cut into your day. For trips under 3000 nm, this is the jet of choice. Our runner up may be a bit slower than the Citation X, but what it lacks in speed, it makes up for in range, we present the: Falcon 7X The falcon 7x travels at Mach 0.9 or 685 miles an hour, and can seat up to 19 passengers. It boasts a beautiful interior and exterior, many comfort options and the newest in flight technology. It's selling point though, is the 5,900

Best Private Jets of 2014

Best Private Jets of 2014 Many private jets are already in mass circulation but there are always new contenders in the private jet game. The best private jets of 2014 are not jets that can be delivered today, but they are available to order today, with delivery between 2015 and 2017. These are the shortest runway jet (The Pilatus PC-24) The longest range business jet (The Gulfsteam G650ER) and a great all around aircraft (The Falcon 7X) Of course there are many new jets coming to market soon, such as the Honda jet, Bombadier’s Global 7000 and 8000, but these are not yet available to order. Pilatus PC-24 Another interesting reveal at EBACE 2014, the swiss company known for their pistons have unveiled the Pilatus PC-24 one year ago, a very light jet with some unusual characteristics. Naming it the super versatile jet for it’s ability to land on paved and unpaved surfaces. Many Pilatus owners have been requesting a piston with a greater range and speed. Pilatus decided to respond to the demand with a very beautiful light jet which can land on almost any terrain, being able to take off with a minimum of 2690 ft, the Pilatus PC-24 allows access to 21,000 airports and airstrips that other light jets cannot land in. The Pilatus PC-24 boasts seating for 8, much higher than expect for a light jet of this type. The interior is more comparable to a light mid jet than it is for a very light jet. With 1950 nm range, and many cabin features, the PC-24 looks to be a very interesting aircraft. With it’s own cargo area, an enormous cabin space for it’s price level, and Swiss construction, this super

Gulfstream 650 ER

Gulfstream G650 ER Gulfstream has decided today that the 7000nm range of the Gulfstream G650 was not enough for it’s customers' needs. The Gulfstream G650ER (extra range) was born, with a 7500nm range, it is without challenge the world’s longest range business jet. The G650ER will host the same interior and options as the standard G650, the only difference is a 4000lb fuel increase, which naturally means a heavier aircraft, the G650ER will require a takeoff/landing field of 6300ft instead of the previous 5900ft for the standard G650. Gulfstream announced that they will be using the same Rolls Royce BR725 engines used for the G650. The aircraft is available to order now for a price of $66.5 Million, or previous G650 owners may retrofit their own G650 for $2 Million allowing it to fly the 7500nm that the G650ER has to offer. The new 7500nm range will allow G650ER owners in New York to fly non-stop to kong kong, from Texas to Dubai amongst many new city pairs. And for middle east owners, the G650ER will cover the majority of every continent without hassle. Comfort remains untouched, with 16 oval windows(largest in the industry), a mach .90 cruise speed, and all of the bells and whistles you would expect from a high end Gulfstream. We hope the G650ER will be available soon, there has been a very large demand for the standard G650 already, with high profile owners flipping their G650 for 20-30 Million Dollar profits, hopefully Gulfstream's specialists can continue to manufacture and sell G650s at the same speed, the standard G650 waiting list, if joined now, will assure you a G650 in mid 2017. Though we hope the G650ER will be available to the

Last Minute Charters for the Fifa World Cup

Last Minute Charters for the Fifa World Cup Last Minute Charters for the Fifa World Cup are available from aircharter.com. Very soon, the top soccer teams from all continents will play in Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup! If you’re interested in attending, this would be the best time to book your charter to travel to Brazil in order to witness and be part of such historical event. Most of the commercial airliners are almost fully booked for such flights. Furthermore, air traffic in Brazil might just be super high causing lack of flight to games’ destination, resulting in obligations to take ground transportation which won’t be as comfortable and convenient as air travel. Jessie Parker, Operations Manager at aircharter stated: “AirCharter.com has been taking orders and inquiries for charter flights to, and within, Brazil for quite a while now. The competition will have 64 matches in 12 different cities, all over the country. With distances of up to 3,000 Kilometers to travel, ground or even coach traveling wouldn’t be the most pleasant experience. Chartering a plane is often the most convenient and pleasing way to travel from one game to another. Over the past few World Cups we have arranged numerous amounts of flights for fans, sponsors and teams and expect to have more in the very near future” With us, you can travel from your home country or city to any city in Brazil on a chartered jet and get there feeling rested, relaxed and ready to enjoy the culture, food and sport of Brazil. You can pick from any of our available collection of aircraft the best jet to fit your needs based on our group size and distance. AirCharter.com offers concierge service that can coordinate any aspect

The extra cabin width allows for wider seats, more aisle space and a conference grouping with three-across seating for meetings or meals accommodating up to 6 people. Additionally, this get has enough space which allows a larger stateroom option that includes a single seat, a divan that berths into a double bed, a large, 26-inch (66 cm) pop-up LCD monitor and two windows on each side.
