It's official, your favorite team is heading to the playoffs! Now the real question, what type of private aircraft are you booking?
Booking A Private Jet
It's Monday morning, the conference championship games are over, and your hometown team is officially heading to Atlanta for the big game! As you head towards the office's most prized possession, the Keurig machine, your boss yanks you into their office with an urgent assignment. Today, you are to book a private jet charter for the entire office for the Championship game in Atlanta. Easy, right? Don't panic, we've got your back. Below are a few pointers to get you started, but make sure you connect with your trusted air charter broker before booking that private airplane to Atlanta!
Private Business Jet Charters to Atlanta
You probably have a small office if you're looking at business jets for charter; most business jets max out around 17-19 passengers. There are three main categories you can explore in the business jet market: a light jet (1-8 passengers), mid-size jet (1-9 passengers), and a heavy jet (10-19 passengers). While your private aircraft option may have enough seats for your travel party, does it offer the payload and space required for luggage, more specifically, for your boss's set of golf clubs? Does your private jet have the range to fly nonstop into Atlanta, or is a fuel stop required? If only there was someone that could answer these questions!
Private Regional Jet Charters to Atlanta
Is a business jet too small for your group? No problem, let's take a quick look at what the regional jet market has to offer. While not as luxurious as most business jets, renting a regional jet for private charter on a Part 135 certified operator can be a great option for moving 20-70 passengers. A strong air charter broker will make sure you're fully vetted on the 30 seat turbo-props, 30 seat jets, 50 seat jets, and even the limited 70 seat jet options available to fly your group to Atlanta.
Private Airline Charters to Atlanta
So you made it this far, which means you really enjoy my writing or need information on booking a large group air charter for the entire office - even Susie in accounting can come! While combining multiple private jets of various sizes is always an option, renting a private airliner for your large group will offer the most savings. Majority of airliners start with 150 seats, and pending on the carrier and aircraft, configuration will vary. If having a first class section is important for your private flight, make sure you let your broker know! Speaking of configurations, make sure you ask about those private VIP aircraft if you really want to earn some brownie points with the boss!
Atlanta Airports For Private Flights
Now that you have a general idea of the aircraft types, let's take a look at some of the airports in Atlanta for your private flight. While Atlanta has several airports to offer, depending on your aircraft type you can expect to arrive into ATL (Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport), FTY (Fulton County Airport), or PDK (DeKalb-Peachtree Airport). Large public events tend to increase airport traffic and limit available ramp space for private jet parking. Make sure you connect with your air charter broker early to ensure your ramp space is secured! So what are you waiting for, book that private air charter to Atlanta for the office already!
