ABOUT AIR CHARTER COSTS

A single passenger traveling from Grand Rapids, MI on a private air charter flight to Chicago's O'Hare Field on a charter flight might spend $500 to $1100 on an airline round trip ticket purchased less than 7 days in advance. If two or more persons are traveling, the total cost would of course the multiple of the single passenger airfare.

EXAMPLE ...

A charter flight can fly this party (of 3 people for this example) in a light twin-engine aircraft to Chicago for $1400 round-trip (includes 6 hours on the ground). Landing fees NOT included). The savings become evident when at least 3 passengers are traveling and even greater if more travelers are considered. Regardless of whether there is one passenger or four, the cost would be the same: $1400. This example of a charter flight yields a break even point when compared to airfare with the airlines with these three travelers, but the tremendous conveince remains even at 1. This formlua applies equally well to most regional destinations. There are, however, many reasons other than cost to choose private air travel. Click here for a free quote

PRIVACY AND SECURITY WHEN USING CHARTER FLIGHTS


By using private charter, you are riding with only those persons in your group. This eliminates many types of potential security problems that corporate executives may find concerning. Special equipment and other items that you may not be able to carry or do not feel comfortable checking through airline baggage can travel securely with you on an private charter flight. A private flight also eliminates all of the uncomfortable and inconvenient processes of the commercial airports. Commercial flights require additional time involving airline preflight processes as well as security screenings that involve waiting in long lines, removing your coat and shoes, going through x-rays and pat-downs, and bumping elbows with strangers. The experience is often very tiring, unpleasant and stressful. Private air charters allow travelers to board at their convenience while still maintaining high standards of safety through the vastly simplified TSA 12/5 Program. No more lines, long delays or hassles. Just get in, and takeoff! You can also rest assured that Aargus Air makes sure that all flight crew, pilots, attendants and ground personnel are experienced, certified and follow the highest standards. When on a private jet charter, passengers can conduct business on a laptop or conference call, etc., without having to worry about who might be looking over their shoulder or listening in. In addition, there are various amenities the airlines cannot offer that create a relaxing environment conducive to your comfort, allowing you to focus on your important tasks..  Learn More ...

CONVENIENCE OF PRIVATE CHARTER

SAVE TIME WITH CHARTER FLIGHTS

Although some of our our aircraft are slower than commercial jet airliners, on a regional flight, our point-to-point time en route can be shorter. When our passengers arrive at the airport for a charter flight, the charter flight generally leaves immediately. No ticket lines, no baggage check-in, no waiting to board and no push-back.

In the example abve under the heading "about charter costs", the Grand Rapids to Chicago trip would have our hypothetical passengers halfway there by the time a commercial airliner requested takeoff clearance from the tower. It cannot be said that a passenger would never experience an unexpected delay on an air charter, as we are subject to the same air traffic and weather issues as an airline, but they do not face many of the other delay factors that commercial airlines are subject to. The approximate time the party would take from arrival at Grand Rapids Airport to exiting the airport in Chicago would probably be well-over two hours on a commercial airline. A charter can do it in one. For the business traveler this could mean a shorter day because getting there quicker also means coming home quicker, The time saved becomes even more significant when compared with a destination that on a commercial airline flight may require a connection through another city. Our aircraft options include planes that travel at the speed of a commercial airliner, and lesser aircraft that are more cost effective and practical for shorter, regional flights.  Learn More ...

CHARTERING OFFERS MANY MORE AIRPORT OPTIONS

The large size of today's commercial jet aircraft preclude them from landing at 80% of the airports in the USA. Many of these fine smaller airports are located in the same small towns that are the final destination of many travelers.     Learn More ...

THE INTANGBILES OF AIR CHARTER

Also, the charter aircraft experience also "puts you in the sky" much more vividly than an airliner. <    Learn More ...
