Frequently asked questions
What is a private jet charter flight?
A private jet charter or private air charter is an unscheduled flight, which is not part of a regular routing offered by a commercial airline. When chartering a private jet, you rent the entire aircraft. You determine departure times and the flight route according to your schedule and travel plans.
A private jet charter flight is customised for the passenger. The flexibility to the passenger’s needs is an advantage to a scheduled flight run by a commercial airline. On a regular flight you are only entitled to a seat on a specific route and at a fixed time – even with a first-class or business-class ticket. Whereas on a chartered private jet travel times and the itinerary are under the control of the passenger.
How much time can you save on a private jet?
First, the transfer to the nearest airport can be reduced to a minimum when flying with a minijet. Our Phenom 100 can take off and land even on short runways. The range of possible airports you are connected with is much higher than with a regular airline. You can fly unusual routes like Kassel to Cannes or Paris-Le Bourget to Altenrhein, which are not served by any commercial airline.
Second, the check-in, security check, baggage handling and boarding procedure will only take a few minutes. Just arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time instead of counting in hour-long buffer times and long walks inside the airport building. And pick up your luggage immediately after landing, instead of losing additional time waiting at the belt.
Third, a private jet allows you to reach your travel destination without layovers and tedious connecting flights. The Phenom 100 can reach most destinations within Central Europe on a direct flight, nonstop in less than two hours flight time.
In general, travellers on a private jet can save several hours on many routes within Europe compared to a scheduled flight with a commercial aircraft or other means of transport.
How much does it cost to fly on a private jet?
Flying in a private jet is often associated with ostentatious luxury, first-class comfort and exclusiveness for a price only the elite few can afford. But travelling on a Phenom 100 with its economical usage is much less costly than you might have thought.
Nowadays flying private is not an exclusive privilege for the upper class. Many of our clients have rational arguments for choosing to travel with our entry-level jets. For them the convenience of saving hours of travel time and flexible planning according to their schedule is worth paying an extra amount.
Oftentimes chartering a small private jet is not significantly more expensive than a business-class ticket, especially when travelling in a group.
The exact costs for chartering a private jet depend on various factors such as distance, take-off weight and airport fees.
To give you a general idea: A chartered flight from London to Paris might cost 5000 Euros, which is definitely affordable to a regular airline ticket, especially when you split the costs among 5 passengers. The total price for a flight from Munich to Cannes will be around 7000 Euros.

How safe is a flight in a private jet?
Travelling by airplane is the safest mode of transportation. Beyond this, private jet operators have to comply with numerous safety regulations according to European standards. Small jets, just like large commercial aircrafts, must undergo a routine safety check before each departure.Moreover, the crew of a Phenom 100 always consists of two people – the pilot and the co-pilot. The pilots are employed at our company and fly exclusively the Phenom 100, so they know the aircraft like the back of their hand. Our crew participates continuously in flight trainings for your maximum safety on board.
