How Does On-Demand Jet Charter Work?

Get an Instant Quote

There are various ways to travel privately, but chartering an on demand private jet is the most flexible and obligation-free one. Charter flights are typically hired on an as-needed basis through a direct aircraft operator (a business that owns and operates a fixed fleet) or private jet brokerage.

On demand charter flights provide a number of distinct benefits over regular airlines. In a nutshell, there is no comparison. Private charter passengers gain back hours in their day but, more importantly,  relieve mountains of anxiety, effectively doubling your return on time and peace of mind. This cannot be overstated. The ease of travel is unparalleled.

The following is a summary of a typical charter flight itinerary:

  • 10:00 a.m. – After rush hour, depart for the airport.
  • 10:30 a.m. – Pull up to the private terminal’s front entrance.
  • 10:35 a.m. — Greet the staff, unwind, and get a coffee.
  • 10:45 a.m. – Board the plane and select your preferred seat.
  • 11:00 a.m. – Departure, relax back and anticipate a lovely flight.

How to Make Charter Flight Reservations

If your charter requirements are infrequent and frequently depart from the same place, you may almost certainly book directly with a local aircraft operator and have a positive experience of on demand air travel.

If your demands are unexpected, if you operate from many locations, or if you occasionally want different types of planes, you may consider calling a charter broker. Learn more about the role of a private jet broker here.


Are charter aircraft processed via the same terminals as commercial planes?

No. The flight on demand operates from completely distinct locations. When booking a charter flight, you will not interact with commercial fliers in any way, and there will be no lineups, parking problems, or pickup/drop-off concerns to consider.

Are Charter flights subject to TSA inspections?

Yes, but not in the manner in which commercial airlines operate. Passenger names must be submitted before departure and must pass through a TSA check. Before passengers arrive at the airport, all names on the manifest are cleared.

What are the prerequisites for charter flights with Customs?

On demand charter flights are subject to the same Customs laws and enforcement as commercial airlines. However, the procedure is simplified. Private flights are frequently authorized on the aircraft, immediately following the aircraft’s taxi to the terminal.
If Customs clearance is required on land, the structure is isolated from the business area, and a designated Customs representative is on hand to ensure a speedy process.
