Private Business Flights
We are well aware that in many instances a private charter flight is not considered a luxury, as for example in circumstances where you need to reach your destination as fast as possible in order to hold a critical meeting, to close an important transaction, to hold a number of meetings at destinations far apart from each other, or to save precious time of the company managers and their employees.
Saving your time or that of your employees is not a bonus. As a manager or business man having business contacts abroad, you obviously know how much time is wasted on traveling itself – from the early arrival at the airport, waiting for the security checks and passport control, the delay in embarking and disembarking, holding in the air over the congested airport, searching for the luggage that has been delayed or even lost, and a long journey from the airport to the destination point. In addition to the delay in the schedule, all of the above affect our mood and temper, not desirable when you have not even begun your meetings.
The almost unlimited flexibility of a private flight puts the control of time back into your hands. Your flight will take off when you want, and can be delayed or advanced according to the changes in your schedule. Business jets can land in much smaller airports than scheduled flights and bring you as near as possible to your destination. Also, during the flight itself you can, if you wish, work comfortably connected up to your lap top computer, and have the use of a satellite telephone (in most of the aircraft).
Using a private charter flight for your business, places you at an advantage over your competitor. A research carried out in 2009 by the American consultant company NEXA, about the performance of S&P 500 in 2003 -2007 found that the percentage of growth of income, profit, stock value etc. of companies using business flight services were higher (sometimes much higher) in comparison to companies that did not use such services.
In addition, according to the research, the majority (90% and higher) of the S&P 500 companies appearing in the various “Best Of” lists in Business Week and Fortune were companies using private flights regularly.
