Using a Charter Plane Service? - Don't Settle for Less

February 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 135

Because so many folks are out there looking for alternatives to commercial air travel, charter plane service is becoming huge. Despite the economy improving, regional air service is no less of a hassle for the busy and distinctive traveler. The result is a more crowded charter market that professionals often use jointly to get where they need to be.

Example? Three businessmen are in Chicago, and need to catch a plane to New York. Commercial airlines are out of the question due to layovers. Train and car travel are too slow. In this case, renting charter air travel is the best option.

Seasoned business travelers are often surprised at the cost of chartering a plane to get somewhere. $5000-$10,000 price tags are often the result of attempting to book last-second charter air travel. There are other problems as well. Safety

Obviously, the first concern in any charter situation is safety. An air taxi should be streamlined, have up-to-date equipment and regular maintenance checks, and a traveler should feel like he or she can remain confident in the equipment and the pilot throughout the flight. Chartering a plane without knowing anything about the background of the pilot and the equipment itself can be a fatal mistake. A charter pilot should always be willing to walk the perimeter of the plane and show you safety and maintenance logs. There's nothing wrong with caring about your safety, and asking your charter pilot for this information.


Another major issue with most charter service is what you get for the price. You're paying thousands of dollars in some cases to be stuck for hours inside a cramped, stuffy plane, with no music, no cell or internet service of any kind, and no food or beverage.

There's absolutely no reason to sacrifice quality if you're trying to get somewhere quickly - especially if you're a business professional on a budget. Do your research and find a sky limo service that goes leaps and bounds beyond related companies in the service, accommodations and quality. Do your research thoroughly and make sure to look up reviews of the air taxi service you are considering.

If you're gearing up for a charter flight, remember to ask about safety, accommodations, and check out the company's track record using sites such as the Better Business Bureau online. Your safety and comfort are important, and the air team serving you should be ready to please and make all aspects of your flight comfortable. Don't settle for less!
