Bottom Line Benefits of Private Jet Charter
Air charter is free of the hassles travelers associate with commercial flights. Departures are from comfortable, uncrowded private terminals: no early check-in, no waiting to take off, and no cabin sharing. At most airports, you can drive right up to the jet if you prefer, be welcomed by the flight crew, and get onboard. Within minutes you are taxiing for departure, and your arrival is equally hassle-free and seamless. Paramount handles all the details so that you can enjoy the journey.
Charter can be a surprisingly economical travel solution per person. You can fly private from and to the airport closest to your departure and destination — which likely has no commercial service — saving significant ground transportation costs. Multi-city business trips requiring several nights’ accommodations when going by airline may be accomplished in a single day by a chartered jet.
Business jets are much more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing than the cabins of commercial aircraft. If you’re looking for even more, you can select an aircraft based on the cabin configuration and onboard entertainment system, including large-cabin jets that may be equipped with a galley and a stateroom with a full shower.
You can get more done when flying on a private charter than on an airline, one of the reasons aircraft are so important to the business world. Colleagues and team members can discuss the upcoming meeting or debrief afterward in comfort and privacy, without concerns about discussing sensitive information. Standard club seating arrangements allow face-to-face conversations across large, glossy tables designed as working surfaces.
Time is our most valuable and precious resource. Air charter minimizes its consumption, eliminating the delays, the prolonged processes, and all the added time and associated hassles that traveling commercially costs, time-wise. Factor in not just the savings in time, but in the stress that accompanies all those wasted hours and minutes.
Peace of Mind
Concerns about the health of other travelers, passenger misbehavior, flight delays, and cancellations are among the commercial air travel issues that charters eliminate. You have the aircraft to yourself, and you know everyone onboard, providing peace of mind that adds to the serenity of the charter experience.

Why Should I use a Charter Broker?
Brokers arrange charters through their contacts with multiple fleet operators, providing a large pool and a wide variety of aircraft to offer customers, offering many more options than any single fleet operator can. Quality brokers can also arrange charter flights anywhere in the world, simplifying your access to the entire globe.
Charter brokers vary widely in their experience and service levels, as do their prices and fees, booking policies, and other important details. Comparing the differences among brokers you’re thinking about working with will help you make the best choice.
What Should I Consider When Choosing a Charter Broker?
Surprisingly, air charter brokers require no licensing or certification, and the field is largely unregulated. Anyone can host a website with enticing graphics and declare themselves a charter broker, without having any qualifications, training, oversight, or background check, in a business where single transactions easily run into tens of thousands of dollars or more.
But delivering consistent, high-quality charter experiences takes more than a website and a cell phone. It takes experience, knowledge, ethics, best practices, teamwork, great relationships and contacts, and great customer service. That makes it imperative to know the history and qualifications of a charter provider before you book your first flight. Consider these factors —
History and Experience
How long has the brokerage been in business? Who is on the team, and what is their experience? Does the broker regularly arrange charter flights on the route and with the type of aircraft appropriate for your planned flight? What is the safety record of the fleet operators they work with?
Aircraft and Service Quality
Private jets can vary considerably in their cabin outfitting and equipment, as does the depth and quality of service a charter broker provides. What standards does the brokerage set for the aircraft it offers, and from what operators do the brokerage access the lift? What customer service is offered from booking through arrival, including contingencies for flight cancellations?
Pricing and Transparency
Charter costs are highly fluid, and rates vary among brokers. Ask to see invoices for recent flights mimicking your planned trip, and ask about any additional fees, mark-ups, and other costs that could be incurred. Do not shop by price alone; compare program rates along with the quality of the aircraft (e.g. average age of the airframes, how recently refurbished, cabin equipment), and the broker’s services.
Responsiveness and Cancellation Policies
One of the great benefits of the charter is its quick reaction time, always ready for an unplanned but suddenly critical trip. Not all brokers provide 24/7 service, and providers may require two or more days advance booking for a trip. Additionally, cancellation policies for charter flights, from advance notice required to penalties or fees, vary widely and can be substantial. See how a broker’s cancellation policies align with your travel profile and expectations.
What is Jet Charter?
Jet charter is a paid private aircraft flight conducted under the regulatory authorization, arranged to meet the personalized travel needs of one or more customers. These bookings are also called Part 135 flights in the U.S. (for Part 135 of the FAA’s Federal Air Regulations, which govern charter flights), as well as “on-demand,” or “ad-hoc” charter, signifying the customized, unscheduled nature of these trips. Air charter allows travelers to choose the most suitable aircraft and schedule for each trip, without any financial commitment beyond the one flight, making this a flexible and economical access option. Charter does not, however, provide guaranteed access; during times of peak demand, few or no aircraft may be available for charter, and/or pricing may be significantly higher.
Who Invented Jet Charter?
No single individual started the air charter business. The roots of today’s charter industry go back to aviation’s Golden Era of the 1930s, when aircraft like the Spartan Executive and Howard DGA, with their sumptuous interiors, were favored by business leaders who appreciated the “go where you want when you want” freedom they afforded. Corporate aircraft use spread in the post-War years as many former military transports such as the Beechcraft B-18 and Douglas C-47 (the U.S. military version of the DC-3) were converted into executive transports.
Private jet charter began to appear in the early 1960s with the introduction of the first business jets, including the Lockheed JetStar and Learjet, but the fleet and charter availability was limited. It wasn’t until the 1990s that charter access really began to expand as the number of business jets, management companies, charter brokers, and other providers established the critical mass the field needed to grow. Meanwhile, the internet enabled simplified charter scheduling and booking across multiple fleets, even as new forms of access — fractional ownership, jet cards, and fleet membership programs — further expanded travelers’ available lift options, which served to create even more demand across all of them.
Today charter customers have a choice of chartered jets from among a global fleet exceeding 15,000 business aircraft, and thousands of brokerages that can book a flight, though the quality of the aircraft, and the brokerage services, can vary greatly.

Hi Everyone, just wanted to give you some feedback – I got a chance to ask Daniel how the trip went with Paramount on Monday. He said that from the moment he arrived in Dublin all the way to his destination in Derry the service was unbelievable. He has taken private charters in the past and he said that this trip was by far the best he’d experienced, superior service.WENDY from THE USA
