To many people, the talk of private jets brings about notions of luxury and exclusivity. Instantly, an airline-sized aircraft with lavish interiors and personalized service comes to mind. The truth is, most private jets are in glaring contrast to the images shown on lifestyle channels and new reports.
Majority of private jets are just too small in height for anyone to stand up fully – it almost feels like you’re in an airline using the lavatory. A usual cabin is practical than posh, and the number of passengers a private jet can accommodate is less than that of a commercial airline. The silver screen doesn’t usually film on private jets because they barely fit equipment in the cabin, let alone the cast and crew!
According to a study done by Jet Advisors, a private jet is more of a time and energy efficient option for employees. Based on the study, a firm will save 22.5 working days a year for each passenger who is traveling by private jet compared to a commercial flight. The trip was from Chicago to New York. Both the departure and arrival airports were considerably closer and convenient when using a private jet.
The study observed that out-and-back trips done in the same day were almost unmanageable on commercial airlines. In comparison, a private jet, a 6-hour meeting can be easily accommodated without having to stay overnight.
The study noted that traveling privately will save about seven hours a trip, and the firm made about 24 trips yearly, saving them a total of 180 hours per traveler.
The energy and time saved traveling in a private jet makes owning and operating one is largely similar to deciding to buy a new CNC machine or integrated computer system.
If you want see how efficient it would be for your company to travel privately compared to using a commercial airline, hire a private jet for your next flight.
