Here in the United States as well as in many other places all around the world, there are many reasons to fly – and flying is incredibly common because of it. From flying to visit family members to taking business trips to simply going on vacation, there are many reasons to utilize air travel. After all, it’s quite efficient and fast, a faster way to travel than really any other form of transportation that is currently out there, making it a great way to travel the world – or even just a few hours away.
But flying via a commercial airline has, in many ways, become far less than ideal. For one thing, it’s crowded and cramped and often far too busy (depending on a number of factors, such as the time of year you are flying, as well as the time fo day). From navigating security to waiting for your baggage, there’s a whole lot of hurry up and wait involved in flying out of any major commercial airport, and a multitude of things that can go wrong. For instance, lost package is far more common than many people actually realize, and even though most airlines are willing to compensate people for their lost baggage, losing a suitcase or even multiple can throw a wrench in the scheduling – and the overall enjoyment – of just about any trip, no matter why the trip is being taken, for business or for pleasure.
In addition to this, the actual fight itself can be less than agreeable, especially if you are flying economy. If you’re flying for business, it’s unlikely that you’ll find the ideal place to work on any given commercial airline. In fact, the average business passenger finds that their productivity will drop by as much as 47% throughout the duration of the flight, something that can be difficult to recover from even after the flight has ended.
Fortunately, private flights have become a more viable alternative than ever before, especially here in the United States. After all, there are more private jets and other such private aircraft charters here in the United States than ever before, with more than 11,200 of them registered by the time that the year of 2011 had drawn to a close. In the more than five years that have passed us by since, there are even more private flights being taken than ever, a number that is only likely to continue to grow and to grow in the years that are to come.
But why have private flights become so widely utilized? For one, they’re much better for concentration, particularly for those who are flying for business purposes. In fact, it has been found that employee concentration will rise by as much as 20% in comparison to the typical office setting when working on private flights. This is far more ideal than the considerable drop in productivity that is faced when a commercial flight is taken instead.
Aside from this, avoiding crowded and busy commercial airports is much easier to do when flying on private flights instead of in commercial ones. This is true due to the fact that private flights can fly into secondary airports – and, in fact, as many as very nearly 35% of all private flights taken for business purposes will choose to fly into a smaller airport instead of a large commercial one. This can avoid many of the problems and hassles faced at your typical commercial airport, something that is more than ideal for the vast majority of people here in the United States.
At the end of the day, it’s likely that private flights can be beneficial for people of all ages, of all purposes, and for all destinations. Private flights provide many pros and far fewer cons than traditional commercial airlines, as taking a private flight allows you to avoid things like the potential for lost baggage and even crowded airports all throughout the United States in and of themselves.
