Take to the Skies

ams-aviation-caribbean-cayman-reallifeTravel in 2017 seems to have taken many steps back, and what was once a good experience has turned into a gruelling multi-hour slog.

For the elite traveller this can be easily corrected, often for a much better price, and always in a convenient manner that is quicker and more civil.

When travelling by private aircraft parking lot to aircraft engine start is generally only 10 minutes, including customs and immigration, and you set the departure/arrival times based on your schedule, not the airlines'.

Of course not all trips make financial sense to be performed on a private aircraft, however when an analysis is performed many find that trips can indeed cost less than commercial air travel.

Generally, if flying Business or First Class, and with a party of four or more, then private aircraft travel can be of a similar cost or even less than commercial transportation. When one considers the time and hassle factors associated with commercial air travel, private is the sure winner.

One and two-day business trips flown private can also be more cost effective for companies when one factors in flexibility: trips can be same-day or single-overnight-events, and allow for more colleagues to come along.

When business travel can be conducted in a single day companies save on the cost of accommodation, per diems and meals. Not only is the team out of the office for a single day, private air travel creates an environment for higher productivity as the team travels quickly and without hassle allowing them to arrive refreshed, all of which further compounds savings.

Most business trips within the Caribbean, Bermuda, or the BVI’s can be conducted in a single day, allowing team members to leave after breakfast with the family and be back in time for dinner or bedtime.

As an example, a team of four or up to eight people could make a Cayman to Jamaica four-hour business meeting in less than five-to-six hours total travel time for about US$6,000.

An experienced aviation professional is able to analyse individual and company travel needs and travel history, advise as to which trips can save money and time, as well as provide a spreadsheet of parameters and options that outline when it makes sense to choose private flight travel.
