How to Bring Ski Equipment On Board

Private jet charter offers much more flexibility when it comes to luggage and cargo.

As long as the aircraft has the appropriate dimensions, passengers can easily bring their ski equipment on board – without worrying about extra fees or unsafe handling in general cargo.

De-icing Concerns

While skiiers wish for fresh powder, colder temperatures can often cause an aircraft to require de-icing.

De-icing refers to the process of spraying special fluid onto an aircraft so that ice doesn’t form & settle on the exterior in cold climates.

Costs can vary for de-icing procedures, and indeed can add up very quickly. Protect yourself (and your flight!) with the PrivateFly De-icing Waiver.
