Never even thought about chartering a plane? Here are 5 big reasons to change the way you travel:
1. Enjoy complete flexibility
Unlike commercial airlines, chartered planes are completely at your beck and call. This means that the flight itinerary can be fully tailored to you. Need to fly out at 6am? Want to fly on somewhere else that evening? No problem. What’s more, chartered planes are not restricted to set flight routes or airports. If the small, out-of-the-way airport in rural France is closer to your pitch, then that’s where the chartered plane can take you. Charter planes can land at more than 7000 airports worldwide.
2. Make lost baggage and missed flights a thing of the past
Never experience the frustration of a lost bag again. You can put your luggage straight into the hold yourself, so you know where it is at all times. And as for missed flights? Well, if the plane is flying only for you and your team, you can be assured it will wait! Win, win.
3. Bypass a lot of airport hassle
Sure, your passport will still be checked but you can forget about lengthy security checks and removing shoes and belts. In fact, you can board your plane within minutes of arrival at the airport. Some airports even permit your car to drive right up to your waiting plane.
4. Travel in luxury
Why make do with limited leg room, lurid colourways and uninspiring food when you can have super-reclining chairs, sleek interiors and gourmet cuisine. At Simplexity, we work with some of the finest plane charters in the business, so you can always expect to fly in complete luxury.
5. Catch up on team strategy… in the air
The best thing about a private charter? It’s private! No sports-mad fans pestering your team for autographs. No rival opponents eavesdropping on your game plan. You can talk strategy, relax and get your head in the zone – without interruption.
