As countries are reopening their borders for travelers, we can expect more changes to the requirements for entry including: mandatory COVID-19 testing, health declarations or new visas. If you’re planning an upcoming trip, or are just curious about which countries have opened up to tourists and what their requirements are, the International Airline Transportation Association put out an interactive map regularly updated with the latest travel information.
The IATA interactive map is a great tool to use while planning to find each country’s entry requirements early and prepare. You can click on any country on the map and find what you need about COVID-19 related travel restrictions, what is required to visit the country and whether you’re eligible to do so.
Another tool to use while travel planning is travelbans.org, which provides continuously updated information on travel restrictions.
Whether you’re off to a business trip in New York or
a weekend of fun under the sun in Florida, private jet travel is by far the
best and most convenient way to get to your destination.
Right now, you’re probably thinking, “There’s no way
I can afford that,” or something around the lines of, “I don’t think it’s for
me.” Well, guess what? Private planes are no longer exclusive to
multimillionaires and celebrities. Jet charters are becoming increasingly
popular among business people, families, and frequent travelers alike.
While flying private can still cost you a few
thousand dollars, the cost of chartering a private jet today is nowhere as
expensive as it was a few years ago. And since there’s more competition in the
industry now more than ever, jet charter service companies have since become
more generous in offering discounted deals! If your schedule’s quite flexible,
you can even book an empty leg flight for almost the same price as a
Private jet travelis an
excellent way to start your trip, especially if you’re flying with a group.
Here are some of the best reasons why you should fly private when you can.
1. You save more time.
The thing with flying commercial is that you always have
to rush to the airport hours before your departure schedule. Arrive at the
boarding gates with just minutes to spare, and you’re almost sure to miss your
When you fly private, though, you don’t have to worry
about your plane leaving without you! While the crew would appreciate it if
you’re 10-15 minutes early, getting there on the nick of time – even a few
minutes late – shouldn’t be a problem.
2. You have full control of your flying schedule.
For most of us, time is a luxury. When you have a lot
of things and responsibilities to take care of, whether at home or at work,
every minute matters.
One of the primary advantages of chartering a
private jet is having the freedom to set your own flying schedule. Just in case
something urgent comes up at the last minute, and you have to delay or reroute
your flight, you only have to inform the flight crew so they can make the
necessary schedule or route changes for you.
3. You get to skip the long lines at the airport.
The crowded airport, snake-like queues, and many
security checks before getting to the boarding gate are more than enough to
dampen the spirits of just about any traveler rushing to catch their flight.
With private aviation, though, these are the least of your worries!
The stress-free check-in and boarding process sans
the long lines will surely kick-off your journey on a high note.
You can depart and land closer to your destination.
Unlike commercial flights, where passengers are
herded through busy and crowded airports, clients of private jet service
companies have the advantage of boarding their flights from private terminals
Because private jets are significantly smaller in
size, clients have more airstrip options to choose from. They can leave from
airports that are closer to their location and land in terminals near their
5. You don’t need to worry about your luggage.
Don’t you just hate dragging 40kg of luggage (or more) to the check-in counter? That is why it’s such a hassle to bring bulky items like strollers, sports equipment, and heavy bags with you when flying commercial. Even worse, they sometimes get lost during the trip and may take days for the airline to recover!
When you take a private jet, you don’t have to deal
with those types of stress. Not only is your luggage with you the whole time;
you can also drive your vehicle right up to the plane, so you don’t have to lug
or carry anything.
6. You receive an unparalleled level of service on
The difference between the services onboard private
and commercial jet can completely alter your in-flight experience. That is to
say; they’re worlds apart.
The inside of the private plane is tastefully
designed and furnished – elegant but cozy. Most important of all, there’s more
than enough legroom for you to stretch and recline your seat, which is a luxury
during long-haul flights.
‘Need anything? The flight crew is at your beck and
call, always ready to offer you impeccable, top-tier service.
7. You can use the travel time to be more productive.
Have you ever wondered why business people
almost always fly private despite the cost? It’s because private jet travel
also benefits productivity. The discretion and privacy that private charters
offer allow passengers to spend the entire flight however they please. Whether
you want to go over pending paperwork, hold a video conference with partners,
host a meeting or close business deals during the flight, you absolutely can!
You have access to in-flight catering and entertainment facilities.
Boredom is a common problem during long flights, but
not when you’re on a chartered plane. With in-flight Wi-fi and some of the best
and the latest entertainment amenities, you have plenty of options to keep you
busy while sipping on a flute of champagne.
Are you in the mood for a party in the skies? All you
have to do is tell the crew. The in-flight catering service would be more than
willing to whip up a feast for you. You can even call them in advance to plan
the menu and inform them of your special diet needs and restrictions.
9. Your pets get to travel in comfort with you.
Do you hate the idea of having to put your pets
through a grueling flight inside the cargo area of commercial planes? Fly
Chartered flights are known for being pet-friendly, which
means your fur babies can also travel in style and luxury in the cabin with
Nothing beats the personalized travel experience that
private jet travel can offer. Expect five-star service from the moment you
board the aircraft until you land at your destination. Pricey, yes. But worth
