The thought of quick-turnaround business travel will likely make you feel exhausted and aggravated. Long lines, waiting in ques, traffic at the airport, parking, navigating the crowded terminals – you get the picture. Then, you need to do it all over again the next day for the return flight. No thank you. There’s got to be an easier, less stressful, more relaxing option.
Spoiler Alert…THERE IS.
Have you considered booking a private flight for your business team or company? One-day private air travel may just be exactly what you are looking for. There are multiple benefits to booking one-day private air travel for quick-turnaround business trips. Here are just a few:
1. Cost Effective for the Company
You are likely scratching your head here. How can private travel be cheaper than flying commercial?
Well, it’s all about circumstances. If it is a quick-turnaround trip that could be done in one day through private air travel, you might be surprised. If private travel can reduce an overnight trip to a single day, you may be looking at savings.
Let’s say you are bringing a team of 6 for an overnight trip flying commercial. You need to book roundtrip tickets, 6 hotel rooms, and expense both dinner and breakfast for 6 team members. That all starts to add up quickly.
When travel is done privately and in a single day, you don’t pay for multiple flights, hotel stays, or meals for the entire team.
And don’t forget, saving time is saving money. Your entire team could be back at work, earning – the very next day.
2. Higher productivity
Have you ever loaded up your carry-on for a commercial flight, hell-bent on getting work done, only to meet distraction after distraction and leave the flight with nothing more done than when you boarded? Being productive on a commercial flight is not always an option and it’s definitely never easy.
Private charter flights offer – you guessed it: privacy! There are no unwanted distractions. You have the ability to work as a team without disrupting other passengers and you can discuss private or sensitive information openly as a team.
When on a private charter flight, you can use your time to do meaningful work that you won’t have to do at a later time or date.
Bonus, you can fly when you want. The flight is booked around your schedule instead of the opposite. This means you can choose the time that is most optimal for your team and their productivity.
3. No Lines, Waits, or Chance of Missing Your Flight.
When traveling private, there is no need to arrive at the airport hours early to deal with checking in and long security lines. Executives and their team can arrive immediately before takeoff.
Additionally, when you arrive at your destination, there is no need to wait at the baggage claim. You and your team can simply land and get going.
You can also choose to land closer to your event destination at a smaller airport. There are roughly 14k+ private airports around the country which will, on average, get you a minimum of 20 minutes closer to your final destination. This saves both time and energy.
Another bonus, there is no need for those time-sucking layovers. If your private charter plane has enough fuel, it will go direct.
4. Spend More Time at Home with family
The quick seamless process of one-day private air travel for your business trip will ultimately translate to more time at home with family for you and your team members. You may even make it home in time to tuck your kids into bed and rest your head on your own pillow for the night.
With private travel you also have the option to travel to more than one destination and location within one day. This means you can achieve in one trip what might otherwise necessitate multiple business trips. Less business trips mean more time at home with family.
Ultimately, less time spent on long business trips = more time with your family doing the things you love and making the memories that matter.
