When making the decision to fly private there are a variety of pricing options to consider, for example, purchasing charter hours in bulk (commonly referred to as a ‘jet card’) or fractional jet ownership. For 25 years, Schubach Aviation has operated ‘on demand,’ meaning our client have access to our fleet of private jets on a trip-by-trip basis— which is often the best value for our clients, offering the same benefits without investing significant capitol upfront. Read on for a breakdown of the advantages of on-demand air charter:
Flexibility – Enjoy the broadest options of jet types (with the ability to select the best suited aircraft for each mission) and dates of flights, with far fewer time restrictions. Most on-demand charter operators can also work with just a few hours of lead time for a flight while most card programs require 24 hours notice to book a jet.
Value – Pay for exactly what you need, when you need it rather than a large, non-interest earning, initial deposit. At times, the ‘true’ hourly rate of on demand charter flights can be half that of jet cards.
Fewer Fees – No extra fees (or restrictions) associated with peak travel times or ‘wait time’ should you be delayed on your way to the airport, to name a few.
Transparency – A clear understanding of what your flight will cost upfront. The initial quote you receive will include all fees (minus special catering and ground transportation).
Safety – There is something to be said for the peace of mind that comes with familiarity with the operator who is conducting your flight, its safety rating and records and culture.
Personalized Service – Pilots are solely available for your flight and 100% attentive to your needs. Over time, operators get to know your family, your preferences and the services that will give you the best fight experience possible.
