The Trinity of Flying Private
In today’s climate, traveling through an airport such as Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson International Airport can be a daunting task. Not only do you have to arrive for your flight hours before they are set to depart just to make it through the security line in time for boarding. You also must consider drive time to get to the airport, park your car, and if you park away from the airport- how long is that shuttle going to take just to get you to the entrance of the terminal? To top it off, you have no idea what kind of viruses including COVID-19 may be lurking and with the number of objects you generally touch in a normal trip through the airport, it can be unsettling.
It’s time you take that worry and frustration away from the major airports and airlines and focus on what is important; you and your business. Whether you are flying for business or for leisure, flying private can be a much more enjoyable experience taking the frustrations of commercial aviation travel out of the equation. Here are 3 main reasons to fly private:
1. Touch Points: Reading though this New York Times Study and from listening to the Business Aviation Insider Podcast, they both mention one of the benefits of flying private is the significant differences between the touch points in commercial aviation to private aviation. Commercial travel will result in more than 700 touch points from travel to the airport, security, boarding the aircraft, baggage, etc., whereas the amount of touch points for flying private is only around 20-30. This is a massive difference between commercial and private flying, which clearly represents a great distinguishing factor if you are looking to travel even safer.
2. Get Where You Want to Go Faster: We all know the hassle of standing in line at the airport, standing in line to board an airplane, and the frustrations that come with just trying to get to your next destination. Private air travel can get you where you want to go even faster mainly because it completely cuts out this so called “Middleman” being the commercial airports. You can arrive only minutes before your scheduled departure time, walk straight through the FBO, and right on to your aircraft taking you to your next destination, which brings us to our third reason.
3. Get Closer to Your End Destination: The days of having to connect a flight, rent a car and drive hours to your final destination are over. Flying private allows you to have a wider range of options when traveling due to the size and performance of the aircraft, you do not have to fly into the largest airport in the state just to get where you want to go. Smaller airports are a much better option, not only do you have more personalized service at these airports, but for the most part, they can get you within an average of 20-30 minutes of your destination. Obviously, there are some exclusions, but for the most part private aviation can get you closer to where you want to go.
In this industry and in yours, time is money, and time is the most valuable commodity to save since it is not something that you can get back. Justifying private aviation is surrounded by saving time, comfort, and feasibility of how this service can help make your business succeed. Be in more places in one day and be home in time to enjoy valuable moments with your family.
