With more private air travel companies offering jet-like public charters, here are three travel tips for first-timers:
Use a reputable company: With an endless list of companies offering flights and private memberships, it’s critical to book and travel with a reputable company. In the United States, look for a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval.
Book in advance: Although you can book with most private jets on the same day, there is no guarantee you will get the particular jet you want. Depending on your travel needs and commitments, it’s best to book in advance, especially if you want to maximize your workday.
Have proper documentation: Traveling on a private jet does not absolve you from following international travel protocols and procedures. If you are flying to an international destination, you will need to provide a valid passport or obtain a visa.
