Rent a Jet and Fly Wherever You Like!

Flying in a private jet is still something of a rarity in Poland, mainly because Polish people regard private jets as exclusive to multimillionaires and are unaware that rent-a-jet services are available in Poland.

A chartered jet gives you freedom like no other means of transportation. All you do is make a phone call and an hour later a private jet will be ready and waiting to take you from the airport in Warsaw to any destination in the world. This is the only way for you to meet your business partners in Madrid, Paris and London all in one day.

When you charter a jet, it is you and not the airline that decides when the plane takes off. You can call the pilot and the plane will wait for you if your scheduled meeting takes longer than expected. No such time management flexibility is available from any other form of long-distance transportation. What’s more, a chartered jet can take you to any destination in the world. The only limitation on routes provided by operators of chartered business jets are the technical requirements that the target airports need to meet to guarantee safe takeoff and landing for the jet of your choice.

Customers flying in private jets use special General Aviation terminals which are usually located in separate zones at airports. Security checks at such terminals take place just 15 minutes before departure in a private setting and away from crowds. Some airports even allow passengers to drive up to the plane in their own car, all to ensure the best comfort possible.

During flights, the crew make sure passengers and their needs are well attended to. On board a small jet you are served meals ordered from a restaurant in the city of departure, as per your preferences. Operators of chartered private jets can also see to it that your journey to a business meeting or a vacation resort continues in comfort, and if such is your wish, they can even provide a helicopter.

The largest company to offer chartered jets in Poland is Blue Jet, based in a hangar at Warsaw’s Chopin International Airport. The company has seven jet planes ranging from small six-seaters to long-haul aircraft for 14 passengers.

Jets are mostly chartered for business and private purposes by company owners and managers. Owners of real estate abroad want to fly and reach their property as fast as possible. Owners of yachts on the Mediterranean Sea, in turn, order flights to airports nearest to where their yachts are mooring. Businessmen who have meetings scheduled in several different cities across Europe can save up to several days by choosing to fly in a private jet instead of boarding a scheduled flight.

The benefits of traveling in a private jet make sure the popularity of these services in Poland keeps growing, but Poland still has some way to go to catch up with other countries. The number of private jets registered in the Czech Republic, for example, is double that in Poland and the number of private jets expected to fly in from Russia for the Euro 2012 soccer championships will be so high that Poland has had to launch a special system of landing slots to ensure safe landings and departures and prevent excessive air traffic.
