On Demand Private Air Charter is showing the highest year over year growth in years! According to TRAQPak, July 2015 saw the largest year over year rise in overall flight activity since February 2012. Results are in and Part 135 flights in July were up almost 10% from last year alone! (9.6%)
On Demand Charter way out paced Fractional Companies. On Demand Charter posted a 9.6% increase while Fractional Companies only increased 2.8%. What is the difference you ask between On Demand and Fractional Charter/Ownership? On Demand is simply charter one trip at a time and you only pay for the aircraft when you use it vs. Fractional Ownership Companies like Net Jet and Flex Jets just to name a few that require substantial upfront investments and require you buy 25 and 50 hour minimum blocks of time in most cases. There certainly are some advantages in buying into fractional programs, such as guaranteed availability during Peak travel periods and One Way pricing for people that travel to and from vacation homes for long periods of time. That does come with a very high price! Using a company like Status Jet is another great option, we work with 135 operators world wide and secure multiple options for you, all you have to do is make one call thats it!
With the Fall busy charter season fast approaching you should work on your private aircraft travel plans soon. The market is getting tighter, in fact the Peak season starts Thanksgiving week and continues through January! Some things to keep in mind when selecting your aircraft for this busy time period is to know all about the operator, the maintenance history of the aircraft you will be flying on and of course the experience of the flight crews.
Private Charter is the way to go, less headaches and no airport security lines! Just drive up to your plane and off you go! Please visit our website at www.statusjet.com for a complete selection of available aircraft for your next trip!
