Time is money and money is time. When your company sat down and did a time and cost analysis on the traveling the employees had been doing it became apparent that booking chartered flights could be more more economical than relying on commercial flights.
The one statistic that really stood out was that business people who flying commercial airlines report at 40% drop in there productivity, according to a 2009 survey. Almost to a person the employees at your company indicated that this statistic about being less productive and commercial flights was true. In fact, one of the major advantages cited in the cost and time analysis report was all of the time that could be saved if your most frequent travelers flew on chartered flights instead of flights going in and out of large commercial airports.
For most companies that have not used private jet charters in the past, the chartered jet quotes are sometimes surprising. Once you take into consideration how much time is spent at large commercial airports waiting in long security lines and for the boarding process, for instance, it quickly becomes apparent that private aircrafts can provide substantial time savings. When the amount of time saved is multiplied by the number of people who do the traveling, it becomes apparent that substantial savings are available:
- 49.7% of the private jet market in the world is used by the U.S. Europe comes in second place at 20.8%
- Smaller jets fly higher and do not have to deal with other air traffic, often making trips faster than the commercial jets which have to fly at at 35,000 feet.
- 335 of all business aircraft flights take off and land at a secondary airport, while 19% of flights are into large commercial airports
- According to a 2009 survey, business travelers are 20% more productive on a company aircraft than they are when they are in the office.
- Although commercial airlines are limited 550 airports, private jets use a network of more than 5,000 airports in the U.S.
- 1.2 million Americans are employed by the business aviation industry, an industry that generates $150 billion in economic activity annually.
In addition to these numbers, the decision to fly by charter is also the decision to fly more comfortably.
