5 Tips to Extend the Summer in a Private Jet

Although we’re almost back in the swing of work & school, summer isn’t quite over  yet.

In fact many of our customers ask to arrange last minute flights to make the most of the summer-style weather before really settling in for the fall.

Here are some tips for a soft landing to the end of summer.

1) Avoid the Crowds

One of the advantages to private jet travel is the access it gives you; not just to ten times the number of airports & destinations, but on a variety of aircraft too.

Avoid massive crowds with similar ideas in mind by using smaller airports closer to your departure & destination.

For example – use Teterboro Airport in New York City to avoid the chaos at LaGuardia or JFK or Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles instead of LAX.

2) Island-hop with Ease

A big trend we’re seeing this summer both in the Americas and certainly in Europe, is the use of private jets to hop from island to island.

When the mood hits, change your Greek scenery in Mykonos for fresh pizza in Sicily, or check out the nightlife in Ibiza; by private jet, the transfers are seamless and comfortable.

Particularly for those with a planned holiday in the sun, consider an extension by choosing an island destination ready for take-off.

3) Enjoy a Spontaneous Flight

Unlike commercial airlines, private jets don’t need to be booked months in advance; in fact, half of our overall bookings happen within a week of the flight and 10% of those are with only a day’s notice.

So while you may not have fully let go of summer just yet, there’s always the possibility of a last-minute escape.

4) September is Still Hot

While peak summer travel is usually between June, July, & August, usually September still sees lovely weather at your favorite hotspots.


An added bonus – many of the summer-saturated airports will have calmed down a bit to offer even more flexibility for your departure & arrival.

5) Take Advantage of our City Pairs & Cross-Country Offers
