Choosing Your Travel Wisely: Charter or Commercial Flying?

Watch Tom Cargin, president, and Brittany Jeska, title, at Air Associates, as they discuss charter for business clients.

In today’s fast-paced world, air travel is a mainstay — especially in business. But why choose charter over commercial flights? Ultimately, it all boils down to three key elements: time, convenience and comfort. With charter, you drive the show (except for the actual plane, of course) — your schedule, your needs, your convenience and your efficient and productive travel experience.

Time and Convenience

We all know “travel time” doesn’t simply mean hours moving toward your destination. Crowded terminals, tedious lines, complicated processing — commercial airports eat up time and fuel stress! With charter travel, travel time actually means time in the air. There’s no advance arrival, cumbersome lines, TSA checks or waiting to board. Even luggage is a breeze — with no baggage restrictions or checking, there’s no hassle or risk of lost luggage. And with an itinerary designed for your needs and convenience, you can go where you want, when you want. Choose exactly where to fly (even multiple cities in one day) and depart at the perfect time for your schedule. Say goodbye to anxiously watching flight schedules! Routes are direct, meaning no layovers or frantic connections, and our charter aircraft have access to hundreds more airports than commercial flights, so you can avoid chaotic hub airports and commercial terminals, land closer to your destination and cut transit time from the plane to your endpoint. In other words, you can focus on your meeting and not how you get there.

Comfort and Privacy

Everyone has endured one (or more) of those flights: cramped seats, baby screaming, someone unwrapping an overly fragrant lunch. Compare that to a serene, restful place just for you. With privacy and no distractions, you can do work, conduct discreet discussions and relax. None of the packed quarters, noise or hassle of commercial flights — just traveling in comfort. The experience is also personalized just for you, with service and attention focused on you. All of your needs are covered — even catering en route and arranging ground transportation upon arrival.
