The private jet charter is an added bonus. In addition to covering the airfare for your husband and the hotel room for two nights, your husband’s company is also letting your 16 year old daughter ride on the Gulfstream charter as well. And while half of the trip to the coast from the Midwest will be spent with your husband meeting with sales staff, the trip also includes three college campus visits.
The private aircraft is going to make it so that your daughter can visit three different campuses in two different states. Without having to navigate the limited arrival and departure times of commercial airlines the trip will allow your husband to attend the meetings and conduct the training sessions for work, while at the same time allowing your daughter to visit some schools she is very interested in.
Your husband was at first a little nervous about asking the company if your daughter could have a seat on the Gulfstream charter, but the fact that the schedule was dictated by some very important meetings meant that the company was all too willing to make the offer.
Private Jet Memberships Allow Companies to Dictate Their Own Trip Schedules
Commercial air travel has gotten more and more frustrating in the last decade. From the price of tickets to the increasingly long lines at security check points, a company that relies on air travel can waste a lot of time if they have to rely on commercial flying options alone. For this reason, a growing number of companies are purchasing or renting various types of private jets.
Consider some of these facts and figures about the private plane charter industry and the impact that it has on the nation’s economy:
- Respondents to a survey in 2009 stated that they are 20% more productive on a company aircraft than in the office.
- Business people flying on commercial airlines report as much as a 40% drop in productivity, according to a survey from 2009.
- Compared to 550 used by commercial airlines, private jets use a network of more than 5,000 airports in the U.S.
- 11,261 private jets were registered in the U.S. in the year 2011.
Whether you are getting ready to travel for work or for personal pleasure, the private jet industry is an option that might provide more workable options.
