Traveling for Thanksgiving By Private Jet

The week of Thanksgiving is one of the busiest weeks of the year for air travel – and the closer “Turkey Thursday” gets, the more difficult the travel experience can become.

Search For A Flight

Typically, private jet charter provides you with effortless and seamless air travel – allowing you to book a flight even an hour before you want to take off! However, when it comes to busier travel periods, it is wise to consider booking your flight ahead of time to ensure you get the flight you want.

Thanksgiving is known as a time to return home to family, but for many Americans – it can also be a chance to go on vacation.

During the week of Thanksgiving, Florida tends to see a big surge in flights, with Miami and Orlando providing the most popular destinations. After Florida, both Las Vegas and Honolulu are other popular flight destinations during Thanksgiving, as travelers look to get a little sun while eating their turkey feast.

Non-warm locations that see a surge in air travelers over Thanksgiving includes New York City, Seattle and Denver.


Traveling for Thanksgiving is an interesting time, as travelers are often traveling at two different times. Either they’re leaving the week before Thanksgiving, and enjoying an extended holiday, or they can only come for a day or long weekend; traveling as close to that Thursday as possible.

When it comes to traveling for Thanksgiving by private jet charter – the best policy is to plan ahead when it comes to booking. This simply ensures that we can secure the best times and aircraft for your flight requirements – as it will be a busier time than usual and could give you less options the closer to the date you book your travel.
