    Picking The Right Private Airline Company

    Nothing beats traveling the skies by way of having an entire jet at your disposal. Most of our beloved celebrities, athletes, and business types get around with ease and great comfort like Harrison Ford in a Gulf Stream V or Donald Trump kickin’ back in his Beoing 727. Believe it or not, their jobs can be stressful and it certainly helps having a private jet and not adding more hassle by trying book a flight with other airlines and not being able to concentrate on work tasks among other passengers.

    Many may think of private air jets as mere means of luxury for those with a pretty penny – it most certainly is that, but that’s where people fail to see the importance of private jets. Thanks to private airline companies that provide luxury services like Blue Star Jets, NetJets, and XO, you’re offered the privilege of flying on your own schedule with flexibility in destination and minimal time / effort spent booking where major airlines lack that kind of service. Charter aircrafts can land almost any strip in the world while major airlines are limited, it’s rare to have any delays, and they adhere to the Federal Aviation Administration’s safety requirements to a tee. It’s really just a matter of seeking the right company to do your business with.

    The newest competitive jet company, M2Jets has just recently partnered up with pro football player from the New York Jets, Bret Lockett to provide the effective service to anyone seeking the best in private aviation. M2Jets aims to succeed in areas where other companies are lacking. For example, NetJets has a fractional ownership program that charges their clients a few million dollars each year to own a fraction of the plane and still charges them to fly by the hour on each trip. Blue Star Jets and XO Jets have a ‘jet card’ where you buy hours in bulk in advance from upwards of 100k. If you go over those hours you get charged an additional amount to fly. These two programs are the reason why M2Jets has become successful in such a short span of time. For the prices NetJet clients pay a year, they can fly with M2Jets on a trip by trip basis for 2-3 years. In addition, based on our research, M2Jets also provides the most competitive rates to clients.

    Getting around on a private jet can also be fun and games, but they are suited best for anyone in a pinch, particularly business types. “My business requires me to make frequent trips,” says a reputable New Yorker. “ But I’ve often had to make last minute flight arrangements with little to no notice. Charter flights are great for my situation, but my greater issue is that it is costly, I still need to be sensible with my spending, and it’s important that I work with a company that’s not going to nickel and dime me for obscured hours and services.”

    If you are going to go private, be smart about it!
