What You Need to Know When Traveling Via Private Jet

People who constantly travel probably already know the basics of air travel. For some, the whole check-in process is already a routine. But things can be a bit different when traveling via a private jet. And if it’s your first time, you may have a lot of questions. Luckily, we’ve compiled all the answers in this brief and simple guide.

Do the Same Luggage Restrictions Still Apply?

Yes. There are still restrictions in regards to luggage. The United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) states that those who plan to travel via private jet must adhere to their standard luggage guidelines. The TSA has a website dedicated to air travel and they also provide an app that can be downloaded on any mobile device.

Private jets do not have the same size restrictions that larger commercial airliners do. But they also don’t have the same rules regarding the amount of luggage you can bring aboard. The amount of luggage varies depending on the type of aircraft you’ll be boarding.

Is There Assigned Seating on a Private Jet?

Unlike on a commercial airliner, there is no assigned seating on a private jet. Most private jets are not equipped with rows of seats. This allows passengers to move around and use the cabin as they see fit. Pilots and flight attendants have the ability to control the cabin temperature, and they can also control the lighting and music. D

How Do You Know Which Airport to Fly Into?

Most private jets can land at regular airports, but they can also land at smaller, private airports. Most large airports have a private terminal called a Fixed Based Operator often known as FBO for short term where VIPs can go through secure entrances, bypassing the lines and making it extremely easy to get through security.

What Time Should You Arrive at the Airport?

When flying private, you can arrive 15-30 minutes before the flight. If you plan to leave at the last minute, you can make arrangements with your air charter advisor.

Can You Bring Pets on a Private Jet?

Yes, but there are restrictions regarding the size and type of pets. If you have a small dog or cat, you’ll probably be fine. But if you have a large dog, you’ll need to check with the private jet charter operator to find out if the animal is allowed.

Are There Any Security Checks When Boarding a Private Jet?

On a commercial airliner, passengers line up and go through security in a single line. But when private jets arrive, they usually have separate entrances and exits from the private terminal. 

Final Thoughts

Are you thinking of traveling via private jet? If so, make sure you invest a few hours of your time to understand the differences between commercial flights and private jets. Air travel can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. As long as you have a great private aviation advisor by your side, you will be in great hands.
