In business you need to availability of getting your employees where they need to go. Sometimes this can be a long planned business trip but for many businesses in the international market emergencies arise sending them half way around the world in a matter of hours. Ideally, every business would own their own private jet but with the cost of a basic model well above $12 million many businesses truly can squeeze this expense into their budget.
It is for this reason that private jet charters have become so increasing popular. With many options including private jet shared ownerships, booking flight time by the hour, and even discount charter websites most companies find this to be an appealing alternative to purchasing their own private jet.
Discount travel websites have been offering commercial airline travelers discount airfares for many years and to much success but now there is a discount alternative for those who are looking to book discounted private jet charters and so far this method of offering last minute deals through discount websites. Sites like Onesky.com for instance are offering last minute travelers the opportunity to pick up an empty leg flight for several thousand dollars less than a standard booking charge would be.
Some companies are also offering a discount program for those who are willing to put down a hefty deposit on their travel in advance. Depending on the level they will get a promise to be able to book a flight at any time they choose, any jet, and at a discounted hourly rate. In essence this is like purchasing a time share and allows the card holder an owner’s equivalent access to the charter jet company. On the other hand there is also the option to purchase a portion of a specific jet but then that part owner is limited to travel in only that one craft owned by the company and does not have access to the entire fleet.
All in all, companies may want to rethink purchasing their own private jet and consider instead using this business friendly service to transport their employees all over the world in a matter of hours. It is the most cost effective way to have open ended transportation anytime you choose without the hassles of owning and maintaining your own plane.
