Navigating the process of booking

We are already noticing that clients are using private jet services in place of first-class or business-class scheduled flights. Many scheduled flight routes have been canceled as travel restrictions have cut demand, and it's likely to take time for scheduled services to recover as travel requirements increase. Private charter offers a reliable alternative with the control and convenience of your own personal aircraft arrangements, so you have peace of mind that you will get to where you need to be and you'll have access to routes instantly as they open up.

With 60 years of experience in aircraft charter and industry-leading aviation safety & security solutions, Air Partner is the perfect choice for your first private jet charter.

If you're looking for a more secure alternative to scheduled flights and are new to flying privately, we have put together a simple guide to help you navigate the process of booking.

1. Send your inquiryWhen inquiring, it is helpful to include the date, departure times, route, number of passengers and number of bags. In the current circumstances with various travel restrictions in place, we may ask for information about your citizenship and visas. Our team is highly experienced and will advise you on any travel documentation needed to meet country requirements.

2. Choose your aircraft
We will search the market to find the best solution for your flight and present you with a number of options to choose from. During these uncertain times, we can help you plan ahead and stay updated with any current travel restrictions, so you can book ahead with peace of mind.

3. Book your flight
When you want to confirm and book your flight, your Account Manager will provide you with a contract to sign. We will then send your passenger brief detailing the route information. At this stage, we will request the passengers' passport details and discuss on-board preferences with you. All the details for your flight, including landing slots, handling and on-board dining are managed by us.
