How to Choose the Right Charter Aircraft for Your Group?

Undoubtedly, flying privately in a group is a memorable experience. But, of course, not everybody has the same needs and preferences. You won't need the same if you're travelling in a particularly large group as if you're flying in a small group, nor if you're travelling for leisure purposes or if you're flying with a large orchestra for your next concert. So, how to select your plane properly? Here are some aspects to consider:

  • Size: Here, you must take into account the number of passengers of your group flight, but also your luggage and the space you need. For instance, if you’re a band touring around the world, apart from space for your crew and band members, you’ll need enough storage space for your instruments and equipment.
  • Flight distance: This is another factor to consider when you’re chartering an aircraft. Thus, if you’re flying a short distance, you’ll probably prefer a smaller aircraft, as it could be more cost-effective, whereas if you’re flying long distances, a larger aircraft could be a better option.
  • Needs, preferences and requirements: Do you need to arrive at your destination pretty fast? Would you appreciate extra personal space? Do you want a luxurious cabin with ample legroom? Is in-flight entertainment a must for your group? Considering everything you want and need before hiring your charter flight is also important.
  • Your budget: How much do you want to spend on your next charter flight? Having this quantity in mind will be of great help in finding the best charter flight deal for you.
