Here are a few tips to keep in mind when planning your vacation:
Book early: Many airports have a limited number of landing slots, particularly in the peak season. If you have plans in mind booking your jet charter early gives you the assurance of securing a slot in a particular location before the rush.
Be conscientious of your needs when booking: Your Jet Charter Consultant sources the type of jet you’ll be travelling on based on your needs. For example, if you’re going on a quick business trip it’s likely you could be matched with a jet equipped with a smaller luggage capacity. Longer family vacations or golf groups will likely be matched with a jet featuring a larger luggage area. If you arrive at your FBO looking to board your flight with a lot more luggage or passengers than you originally told your consultant, it’s possible you won’t fit on that particular aircraft or you may experience delays.
If you’re travelling out of the country: Remember to bring all necessary documentation. Although passengers are often exempt from security screening within the U.S., international rules do vary from country to country. If only one parent/guardian will be accompanying a child or children across international borders, they will need a signed consent form from the other parent/guardian. This letter must also be notarized. Your travel consultant will work through any international requirements well in advance of your flight to ensure everything is as seamless as possible.
