Private jet hire is often associated with businesses, Hollywood superstars, and romantic escapes for the elite. But private jet charter is actually a fantastic option if you want an unforgettable family getaway.

Hiring a private jet for your family means you have an exclusive experience with memories that will last a lifetime. If you have young kids – or sulky teenagers – skipping the usual queues will go down a treat. It’s a unique way to bond. And who better to share such an experience with than those you love and trust the most?

It’s the perfect way to unwind as the real you.

But how do you book a private jet for the perfect family holiday? Luckily, we’re here to help you out.

First, you’ll want to consider the most suitable private jet to hire. If you’re heading abroad, the Falcon 2000EX could be a fantastic choice. It packs enough space for up to ten seated family members. Or five of you if you fancy catching up on some sleep before the real adventure begins.

If you can manage with a little less space, the Legacy 500 is smaller but perfect for kids who want to spend the journey immersed in iPad entertainment. Or, if you’re buddying up with another family – for a joint skiing trip, for example – the Bombardier Challenger 850 is a popular option.

Once you’ve selected which private jet you’ll hire, you need a destination.

Here are our top three family-friendly destinations for private jet charter:

Nobody can resist the allure of swimming with pigs!

Whether your kids are toddlers or on the verge of adulthood, nobody can resist the allure of swimming with pigs!

Fly to a regional airport such as Carlisle Lake District Airport for a quick and quiet entrance. You can spend your time taking long, winding country walks, then visit a traditional British pub for some ‘pub grub’ and a pint. Or a soda for the little ones.

And, if you want to mix it up, you can jet down to London to check out all the sights of the capital including Big Ben, the London Eye, and Buckingham Palace.
