2. How long will it take to get quotes back for my jet charter flight request?

Jetset Charter will get back to you with a quote as quickly as possible, depending on your request. For simple flights, this process will only take minutes. More complex requests may require a slightly longer response time.

3. Can I just purchase just one or two seats on a private aircraft?

No. When you book a charter flight with Jetset Charter, you charter the entire aircraft. In other words, the cost for the air charter is the same regardless of whether you fly alone or with every seat on the plane occupied.

4. What happens if I need to change the time of my departure for some reason?

The biggest benefit to using Jetset Charter to book your flight is flexibility. We can accommodate any changes as long as we have enough notice to arrange with Air Traffic Control and your destination airport(s).

5. Can I add another passenger at the last minute?

Jetset Charter is committed to providing the highest level of service for our clients, and the addition of last minute passengers is usually no problem. However, be aware that there are weight limits on some aircraft due to shorter runways and that some destinations require pre-clearance of all passengers.

6. What types of aircraft are available for charter?

Jetset Charter has access to a variety of the most popular private aircraft of all sizes, which we can help you choose depending upon your destination, schedule, and the size of your traveling party. We have turboprops as well as light, very light, super light, mid-sized, super-mid, and heavy jets. We can also book your charter aboard a large jetliner and airbus. We offer the best in well-maintained and established models such as Learjet, Citation, Mustang, Kingair, Falcon, Boeing, Gulfstream, and many others.

7. Are charter aircraft safe?

Jetset Charter has an unparalleled commitment to passenger safety, and we will provide safety and maintenance records for the aircraft you choose as well as supply insurance coverage of the charter operator.

8. Can I expect a high level of security on board private jet charter flights?

Yes. Jetset Charter works with the FAA and other officials to ensure that all required onboard safety and security measures are met.
In addition, passengers must present two forms of identification and baggage is inspected prior to boarding the aircraft.

9. Do I still have to follow customs/ immigration procedures when travelling by jet charter?

Yes. All passengers must comply with customs and immigration procedures on private jet flights. This is often done prior to the flight – especially for those traveling to small airports. Those landing at larger airports can take care of this at the private jet terminal set up for this purpose.

10. How much does it cost to travel by private jet?

Although the price is often a little higher than flying commercial, the cost of private air charter really depends on many factors including flight time, the hourly rate of the individual aircraft, positioning sectors (where the aircraft is flown empty before or after the passenger sector) and airport fees. You can obtain a fast and accurate quote from Jetset Charter by calling 866-570-5387 or going online to request a quote.

11. How much baggage can I take on a private jet?

The amount of baggage that can be taken on a private jet really depends on the size of the aircraft and the number of passengers on the flight. Storage space is limited on small jets, so the general rule is one per passenger. Larger jets may have interior and exterior storage space which will allow for up to 20 large suitcases as well as recreational gear such as golf clubs and skis.

12. How will I know where to go when I arrive at the airport?

Most airports of all sizes will have private jet check-in facilities. Jetset Charter will send you detailed directions to the airport and your pilot and crew will be waiting for you at the entrance.

13. How long before my flight do I need to check in?

Jetset Charter recommends that passengers arrive at the airport approximately 30 minutes before scheduled departure.

14. Can I order food to be served on my private charter flight?

Jetset Charter can accommodate any special catering request made prior to the flight, from simple snacks to five-course dinners. For small cabin aircraft this is usually pre-prepared buffet style options, but all of our flights include a fully licensed and stocked bar and soft drinks. Larger jets with galleys will allow for preparation onboard the flight. You pick your menu and let us do the rest.

15. Can I fly with my pet?

Jetset Charter knows that pet owners enjoy flying with their furry companion and as long as the animal has the required documents and a crate or kennel to use if necessary, we can accommodate these special passengers.
