Why use Commercial Jet Charter?

Why use Commercial Jet Charter?

There's a common misconception that the large commercial planes are only used by big airlines. This is far from the case, and there are actually smaller alternatives available. Commercial aircraft charter is the perfect way to move a large group of people together, and can be much more convenient than booking multiple airline seats.

A commercial aircraft is classed as an aircraft that seats more than 19 passengers, so is the perfect option for when your group size exceeds the capacity of a private jet. 

It's a common misconception that commercial jet charter is as luxurious (and as expensive) as private jet charter, but that absolutely does not have to be the case. Commercial jets exist in varying cabin classes, from economy right through to VIP - or even a split cabin with a combination of business and economy seats, so you can have the most appropriate aircraft for your needs and budget. We work with a number of airlines to offer jets with anything from 20 to 500 seats, so you can be sure that 

If you have  a large group of people, chartering an aircraft can actually be more cost effective and is definitely far less hassle than booking 20+ airline seats - where availability is very often limited and pricing can be hugely variable. Combine this with then adding costs for catering and checked baggage for each passenger, and suddenly it's a logistical nightmare! When booking a chartered commercial aircraft, your price is inclusive of a comprehensive service, baggage space for all passengers, guranteed seating for everyone on the same flight, and all scheduled to an itinerary that suits you (instead of being at the mercy of when the airline flights are). 

Commercial aircraft charter is extremely popular with sports teams, but it's perfect for company incentive trips, destination weddings, fan travel to away sports games, or just a large group of people wanting to go on holiday together! 

What really sets this apart from standard airline travel is that we can work with you to offer a fully branded service - with customised check-in desks, headrest covers and even vinyl stickers on your aircraft,  for a bespoke and personalised experience throughout your flight and creating a brilliant atmosphere amongst your passengers. 

If you have a group of 15+ people who need to travel together, why not find out how commercial charter can transform your travel experience? Whatever your reason for flying, we would love to help you organise your trip. We are available for consultation 24 hours a day, so get in touch with one of our private jet charter experts and let us tailor a schedule to suit you +44(0) 203 880 9005.

Charter a Private Jet to the 2018 Super Bowl LII

On February 4th, the New England Patriots will go head to head with the Philadelphia Eagles for the 52nd super bowl in Minneapolis. 

Every year, the Super Bowl is the most popular event for private jet charter flights. It's arguably one of the biggest sporting events in the USA, with the half time show (and events leading up to it) being just as big as the game itself.  

This year, Justin Timberlake joins an esteemed list of recent halftime acts including Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Madonna, The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, U2 and more.

Due to its popularity, slots for private jets at the surrounding airports fill up fast. There are five airports available to private jet charter clients within 15 miles of the US Bank Stadium, and helicopter flights from further airports can also be arranged.

Why do Sports Teams Charter Private Jets?

Why do Sports Teams Charter Private Jets?

It all comes down to winning. Our sports charter management team are dedicated to providing the ultimate service that allows you to carry on with what you do best - performing. 

Private jet charter for your sports team has countless benefits. Whether it's flying your entire squad over to another continent for a huge tournament, travelling to a training camp or flying in a player or agent at the last minute to finalise a contract, we have the resources to organise every detail from start to finish at the most competitive rates.

It's well known that travelling by private jet eliminates the two hour airport wait for a commercial flight, and chartering allows you far more options if you need to fly somewhere at short notice. Effects on the team members can be astounding too. Flying privately allows players to spend less time travelling, which leaves more for rest or training. This can help reduce recovery times between big games, or allow them to travel a longer distance feeling far less fatigued. 

When playing or training overseas (or even for domestic games), it's more than just the players who need to travel. We know that sports teams are composed of many professionals - including coaches, managers and medical staff. Commercial travel with a group this size becomes a logistical nightmare, especially once you start to factor in the large quantities of kit that comes along with the players. The extra costs aside, imagine the consequences of a key piece of equipment going missing or getting damaged in transit. With private jet travel, you can supervise everything being loaded on to the aircraft and be safe in the knowledge that we understand the value of every last piece of kit you take with you.

Why Choose Astute? 

When you charter with us, you'll be assigned a full time account manager who is your dedicated point of contact for any queries, and will handle all of your subsequent bookings. This allows us to get to know you on a personal level, so each trip is perfectly tailored and no request is too big or small. Someone from the team will be available 24 hours a day, so you can get in touch any time you need to. Our deep understanding of the sports industry and what it takes to succeed gives us an edge, and we are fully equipped to deal with anything you need to achieve this when it comes to your travel. 

We have unrivalled access to over 30,000 private jets of all sizes, and will negotiate the best possible deal for the aircraft you need. When the whole team and crew are travelling, this usually calls for airliner charter (also known as commercial aircraft charter, which is a full sized aircraft that commercial airlines use, such as a Boeing 737). This gives rise to maximum space for both passengers and luggage/kit, whilst offering a highly customisable cabin space and multiple opportunities for branding. Cabins can be configured to replicate business or first class on a commercial aircraft, or an even more spacious arrangement depending on the number of passengers on that flight. Ground transfers are also something we are able to organise for you if required, and therefore provide you with a single, hassle free quote covering the flights and travel for your journey. 

Highly specific catering can easily be arranged, and we have the capabilities to provide a tailored meal for each passenger. We understand that nutrition for athletes is absolutely key, and that creating meals with the perfect nutrient profile can make a massive difference in player performance. Our bodies are affected by altitude, and eating well can help to minimise any knock-on effects in all of your team members and crew. 

The long and short of what we're trying to say is that chartering really is the only option if you are serious about winning. 

Wherever you need to go, we'll get you closer to your destination; faster and fresher.
