A Private Jet – Your Personal Flying Office
There are now thousands of business executives around the world who use a private jet as a way of conducting their businesses on the move. This is no longer a realm restricted to World Leaders.
Aircraft as varied as Boeing 757 or the Gulfstream G150 are used as flying offices by celebrities and athletes, business executives and professionals. For these people time is very definitely money and the use of a private jet increases their options for doing business at any time.
There are many advantages to using a business jet not least of which is that the effects of jet lag are minimized since sleep is made much more possible by comfortable accommodation and none of the hustle and bustle experienced on a commercial airline. Some private jets even have bedroom quarters.
The airports used by private jets offer separate apron areas and entrance/exit routes from the masses. This means that the passengers experience less delay in transiting through the airport itself. With fewer security checkpoints and departures and arrivals arranged to meet the needs of the passenger, overall traveling times are usually reduced significantly too.
The use of smaller airports for arrivals and departures means journey times to and from the airport can be kept to a minimum.
This of course all adds up to more time for business and a stress free journey which means the passenger arrives at his or her destination refreshed, alert and ready to go.
Just because private jets are smaller does not mean their performance is degraded or their journey times extended. With a flying time of just over 10 hours for a Gulfstream to make the journey from Los Angeles to Paris this is comparable to commercial airliners.
There is now a whole new breed of private jets available – the Very Light Jets. These may not get passengers to their destination any faster but they are without doubt cheaper to purchase and run. With an entry-level executive jet selling for between $3 million and $4 million the very light jet can be found for as little as $1 million and modern engines & materials mean these have all the power and range a traveler could need.
For International Business Executives the advantage of reaching anywhere in a day can give that cutting commercial advantage top businesses seek. Not only does a private jet make the world a smaller place it also allows the passengers to avoid all the drawbacks associated with air travel.
Thanks to modern advances in private jet aircraft technology and charter and lease arrangements such as those offered by Fly Me Now in the UK, having access to a flying office is now becoming as inexpensive as renting office space in the City.
