Flying on a private jet for business travel is a must. Not only do you arrive at your destination faster, but you have the privacy to be productive even while in the air. The speed and flexibility of on-demand charter also mean that you can book last-minute flights and still be in the air within hours of your booking.

In order to make the most out of your corporate private jet charter, however, you should keep the following considerations in mind. New to JetLevel Aviation? Signup for our daily newsletter.

#1: Consider Fleet Size

When you’re selecting a private jet charter company, look at the size and variety of its fleet. One of the major advantages of chartering instead of purchasing a corporate jet is that you can choose the size and type of jet you actually need for a particular journey. When you own the jet, you would need to use the same aircraft for a short flight with fewer passengers as for an international flight with a larger group, which can save you money. Chartering offers flexibility and choice, but you’ll need to make sure the charter company you’re using offers what you need.

Essential considerations for corporate jet travel include assessing the size of the group to determine the most suitable aircraft, understanding the range required for your destinations, and ensuring the jet can accommodate specific travel needs or preferences.

#2: Consider Your Group Size

If you have a large group that needs to travel to the same destination for business reasons, then commercial travel can be extremely inconvenient or even downright impossible. However, not every private jet charter company will have access to the size of aircraft that you would need to accommodate such a large group. For example, JetLevel can offer heavy jets that can seat up to 50 people or an airliner for even larger groups of up to 250 people.

Jet size also plays a role in the distance you’re able to fly. Charter companies with smaller aircraft won’t have the same range as ones offering larger heavy jets.

Chartering a corporate jet offers flexibility and efficiency over ownership. It allows businesses to select aircraft that fit their exact needs without the long-term financial commitment of owning a jet.

#3: Consider Destination Options

Some private jet charter companies only fly to certain locations. If your company has business needs all over the country or all over the world, a limited selection of airports isn’t going to meet your needs. JetLevel, for example, highlights certain locations that are popular with our clients, but we can book private jet charters almost anywhere in the world you would like to go. When you choose a charter company, make sure that they have the flexibility and reach to get you where you need to go.

4: Consider Your Group’s Needs

When you charter a private jet, you can make special requests for certain arrangements or accommodations. These can range from catering to anything you might need to conduct business during the flight. Before you book your private jet charter, consider what you might require so that you can ask the agent or concierge if they can meet your needs.

When choosing a corporate private jet charter, consider the charter company’s fleet size to ensure availability and variety for specific travel needs. Safety records and operational standards are paramount for security and peace of mind.

#5: Consider Other Transportation Needs

When you fly, you’ll also need to consider how you’ll get to and from the airport. Look for a private jet charter company like JetLevel that offers concierge services. The concierge can arrange ground transportation to ensure your group’s timely arrival on either end of the flight. A concierge can also help arrange hotel accommodations for you and your group.


Chartering a private jet for your corporate travel has many advantages over flying commercial or purchasing your own jet. You have the flexibility to charter the size and type of jet that best suits your needs for each corporate trip no matter whether the group is small or large. Private jet charters are also customizable for your needs.
