Tips for First-Time Private Jet Fliers

Tips for First-Time Private Jet Fliers

Flying private is the best way to travel, whether it’s for business or a vacation. Private jets offer much more comfort and luxury than flying commercial. Additionally, they can get you to your destination faster because you don’t have to worry about layovers. If this is your first time flying on a private jet, it’s a good idea to know what to expect ahead of time. Follow these tips to ensure that your first private jet charter experience is good.

Tip #1: Arrive Early for Your Flight

Generally, a private jet charter departs on your schedule rather than an airline’s schedule. You don’t have to arrive hours ahead to go through security and then wait for ages at your gate. It would be best if you still arrived early, however. It would be best if you showed up 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time out of courtesy and respect for the crew, pilot, and other passengers you’re traveling with.

Tip #2: Don’t Pack Too Much

One of the benefits of flying privately is that it’s easier to transport fragile items. You may also be able to bring more with you than you could when flying commercial. However, there is a limit to the cargo space on even a private jet. You may have to share that space with anyone you’re traveling with. Plus, if your private jet is a smaller aircraft, there won’t be much cargo space. It’s best to avoid overpacking, especially if you’re on vacation and want to bring your purchases back with you.

Tip #3: Plan Ahead with Special Requests

If you have specific requests for food or entertainment, ask the concierge to arrange it as soon as possible. Advent Jets tries their best to accommodate requests passengers make, but if you wait to ask for something until you’re already on the aircraft, chances are high that the crew won’t comply. They won’t have the resources to fulfill your request.

Tip #4: Bring Your ID and/or Passport

You don’t have to go through any TSA security checkpoints when you fly private, but that doesn’t mean you won’t need to be able to identify yourself. You’ll need to prove that you are the one who booked and paid for your flight as well as go through a security check before you get on the plane. This is for your protection and that of the pilot and crew. You’ll need to ensure you’ve got your passport if you fly to an international destination.

Tip #5: Avoid High-Density Airports

Private jets have many more options for landing than commercial planes do. When you fly privately, you can choose smaller regional airports closer to your destination instead of flying in and out of the busy commercial airport. This will save you time in multiple ways. You arrive closer to your destination and can take off and land faster because you won’t have to wait to use a runway.


Flying private is an experience that not many people have access to. For that reason, it’s essential to make the best of it, whether you’re a guest of someone or switching to private flights for all your future travel.
