Why is JetAhead different from Chicago private jet charter?
Unlike private jet charter flights, JetAhead allows travellers to be flexible with their schedules when using a private jet to fly to/from Chicago – or any other destination. Chicago private jet charter can be restrictive and costly in terms of cancellations and schedules, whereas with the JetAhead program, a light jet to/from Chicago is allocated to you for the day/s booked.
This means that you can travel freely wherever* you want to go, on your schedule. There is no waiting around for the aircraft to complete other trips, so you can experience virtual private jet ownership with zero stress – while saving money the further ahead you book.
How does JetAhead work?
Unlike a charter flight, JetAhead allocates an aircraft to you for the day/s booked. You pay a fixed day rate cost for the rental of the aircraft – just as you would for renting a car. Then everything else, such as where you fly and the fuel you use, is paid in arrears, according to actual costs.
We don’t add fuel surcharges, either. You pay the actual costs associated with flying the aircraft.
Simply let us know around 7 days before your allocated day where you want to go. Even then, if you want to add in/remove a stop and/or change your schedule, you can. If you want to leave earlier, or depart later, no problem. The aircraft will always be on standby, ready to fly when you are.
How much does JetAhead cost?
For the most up to date fuel pricing, you can speak to one of our private aviation experts. However, the further ahead you book, the less you pay. So if you know your schedule for the next 6+ months, why not book an aircraft now and save thousands of dollars?
As we mentioned above, you pay a fixed day rate for the aircraft, and then all variable costs are paid in arrears.
