Private Jet Charter V First-Class

All posts

Chartering a private jet is definitely the ultimate in luxury travel. Although flying private and first-class may seem similar, they are significantly different models of air travel.

With a private jet, you can explore the world with complete convenience and without the hassle or worry of commercial flights. This allows you to maximise your time at your destination and minimise the number of hours you spend travelling.

Keep reading to learn more about the differences between taking a private jet and flying first class.

Flexibility and Time Saving

The saying "time is money" exists for a reason. After all, time is the one commodity you cannot buy. For many, the flexibility of flying via private jet is one of a kind as it offers the option to plan trips at the time most suitable for you. Furthermore, in most cases, you have access to airports closer to your destination, minimising potential delays. Since private jets offer meeting facilities, business matters can be scheduled while travelling. By contrast, first-class flights run on an airline's schedule and offer very little in the way of truly private and secure business meeting capabilities.

Hassle-Free Check In 

First-class passengers can enjoy deluxe treatment upon check-in. The majority of luxury airlines offer suites and lounges with spacious and comfortable seating areas, premium sleeping rooms, and shops. Nevertheless, first-class passengers still have to conform to airport protocol involving waiting for standard security screenings and for everyone to board since they are still part of a commercial flight. 

Imagine skipping all those annoying stages and simply driving right up to the aircraft to board just before your flight. Those who want total privacy and wish to avoid crowds and chaos in airport terminals need to use a private jet charter. By flying private, passengers enjoy the luxury of quicker security and customs checks and can arrive in as little as 10-15 minutes before the flight. You can even avoid long walks and be driven straight to the jet. These are just some ways private jet flights make getting into the sky and your final destination easier and quicker.  


Privacy is one of the main benefits of private jet charter over first class. When flying commercial, you will still have other passengers, in close proximity to you throughout your journey. Even the best first-class seats with dividers give you only slightly more privacy than standard-class seats. If you need to hold a business meeting or plan to work while on board, you will definitely appreciate the comfortable space and privacy the private jet can offer. If you are just looking to relax in luxurious surroundings, a private jet is in a class of its own. 

Customisation and Meal Services 

Luxurious travel is the name of the game. Both chartering a private jet and flying first class offer an exceptional experience. Top-quality customer service comes guaranteed with both options. Delicious food and drink come as standard, but choice and customisation are where the service differs. 

As a First-Class passenger, you can submit your dietary requirements in advance, but you are restricted to what is on the menu, with no customisation option. Private jet charter is bespoke; you can request anything you wish. SHY Aviation's global team always wants its clients to experience unforgettable moments. When booking a private jet, you choose the entertainment, food, interior, and much more. This is because you are in control. Moreover, you can celebrate the special moments in your life on board with tasty drinks, beautiful gifts, and customised decorations. Those are perks that make deciding between a private jet or first class that much easier. 

Pet-Friendly Services 

When thinking about first-class vs private jet travel, one thing to consider is whether you want to bring your pets. Even when you have booked the best first-class seats, your pets will not be allowed to accompany you. A flight can be a distressing experience for them, and this trauma can be lessened on a private jet charter by the calming presence of their owner.

We know that furry friends are part of the family, and SHY makes every effort to ensure that their travel is as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. Just provide us with all your pet's up-to-date documentation before travelling, and we will make all the arrangements for you.
