Short Private Flights Within Europe
In recent years some Light Jets category models with a cabin for only 4-5 seats (such as the Citation Mustang or the Phenom 100) have begun operating in Europe in a format known as the Floating Fleet Air Taxi.
In this operation format the jet flies its customers, lands at the destination airport and remains there, in order to wait for the next flight from the airport or from a nearby location. This way the cost of returning the jet back to its home base, free of passengers, is reduced. Even if the jet must take a short reposition flight in order to make the next trip, the cost for the customer is still very low compared with the usual price he would have been charged based on the standard operation model, which includes the cost of the empty flight to the home base. The lower cost also derives from the fact that these jets consume very little fuel compared to the larger jets.
The flight range for jets, from the Very Light Jets category, is about two to three flight hours, which places them in an ideal position to execute trips from any destination to any other destination within Europe.
In most of Europe’s airports, LynxJet can arrange rapid transfer between the commercial flight and the private jet, which will save you time and hassle, and enable you to start your vacation, or reach your business meeting, with peace of mind.
Domestic flights in the United States
The Floating Fleets operation concept has existed at the basis of flight formats in the United States for a while. In this case as well, LynxJet Private Flights operates in collaboration with many private jet operators who offer especially low prices for internal flights due to the fact that the cost of the flight is calculated almost exclusively based on the duration of the flight requested by the passenger, without the jet’s return to its home base airport. In the United States, this is also the way that executive jets of all categories fly.
