Chartering A Private Jet For The First Time

14 February 2023   Monmouth Jet Center

Chartering a private jet for the first time is very exciting! We’ve all dealt with flying commercial and the many hassles that it entails – needing to be there at least two hours early, struggling to find a parking space, standing in endless security lines, and of course the inevitable flight delays and cancellations that can really interfere with your travel plans. When you charter a private jet you have the privilege of circumventing all of those inconveniences, and once you fly private, be warned that you’ll never want to go back to flying commercial again! Here are some important things to be aware of when chartering a private jet for the first time. 

Locate The FBO 

A FBO is a fixed-base operator, which is a designated area within the airport specifically for private flights. While larger, commercial airports often have FBOs, you may find it easier and more convenient to fly via your local executive airport where there won’t be as much traffic. FBOs are usually located in a separate area of the airport, allowing you to bypass the long security lines. 

When you charter a private jet you’ll receive an itinerary that tells you which FBO you’ll be departing from, as well as where to find it. If it’s your first time flying private it may seem a little confusing, so don’t hesitate to contact the airport if you have any questions. Your FBO might also have designated parking for you to take advantage of.

Remember Your Identification 

Just because you skip the security lines when you charter a private jet doesn’t mean that none of the rules apply. Everyone who is boarding the aircraft must show valid identification, and for international flights a valid passport is required. 

We recommend making a list of everything you need when packing for your private flight, and be sure to put your identification at the top of the list. You’d be surprised how often first-time private flyers forget to bring their ID! If you don’t have your ID, unfortunately you won’t be allowed to board the aircraft. 

Pack Accordingly And Enjoy Your Flight!

While it’s true that you don’t have to check your bags when you charter a private jet, it doesn’t mean that you can turn up with three oversized suitcases packed to the brim. Private jets often have less space than commercial planes, so it’s best to ask the person you’re chartering your jet from about luggage limitations. While you can bring liquids onboard a private flight, you won’t be allowed to bring universally-banned items including sharp objects, any flammable substances, firearms, or any other type of weapons.

What is an FBO airport?

5 October 2021   General

A fixed base operator (FBO) airport is an airport that has granted permission to an organization (a FBO) to use the airport to provide a variety of services, including refueling, aircraft maintenance, hangar space, pilot training, and more. FBOs are commercial companies that operate on airport property, and they often enhance the scope of services the airport has to offer. In this article, our team will discuss the advantages of FBO services and how they differ between private and passenger aircrafts. 

Important services FBOs provide 

Depending on the size of the airport in which they’re located, FBOs provide a range of important services and amenities for both private and commercial aircraft, pilots, crews, and passengers, including:

  • Fueling services
  • Parking
  • Custom hangar space
  • Taxi and shuttle services
  • Private jet charters
  • Flight lessons
  • Aircraft repair and maintenance
  • Lounges for pilots and crew
  • Baggage handling

… just to name a few!

Private versus passenger aircraft 

FBO airports work with private jet charters to provide hassle-free passenger security screening, so you won’t wait in long queues. FBOs also handle boarding and baggage delivery, while many have restroom facilities, showers, lounge areas, and concierge services for pilots, aircraft crew, and passengers. For the ultimate flying experience, some FBOs provide in-flight catering, making sure your every need is taken care of while you’re in the air. 

Passenger aircraft also utilize services at an FBO airport, including taxi and shuttle services, airport lounges, long-term and short-term parking, WiFi, and restroom facilities. 

Airport amenities at FBO Airports

Waiting in an airport is much more comfortable when you have access to a range of amenities. At FBO airports, you’ll commonly find free WiFi, restroom facilities, lounges where you can rest and recharge, and light refreshments. Amenities for pilots and airline crew often include all of the above plus shower facilities.

Ground handling at FBO Airports

Ground handling includes a range of essential airport services, including sorting and delivering baggage, ramp handling for boarding and deplaning, managing passenger check-in, fuelling the aircraft, and cleaning. Ground handlers often go unseen but their roles are critical, and airports cannot function properly without them.
