How it Works Chartering a Private Jet

Chartering a Private Jet one journey at a time is the most flexible aircraft access method available.

Private Jet Charter

At Velocity, we provide private jet charters ensuring that you can reliably reach your destination on short notice and with maximum flexibility. Charter the perfect aircraft for your journey with as little as 4 hours of notice

If your annual flying time is less than 25 hours, opting for on-demand private jet charters is the most cost-efficient and adaptable way to travel privately, whether for business or personal trips. Frequently, individuals with jet cards, fractional ownerships, or whole aircraft ownerships also rely on on-demand charters as a supplementary option to guarantee the availability of an aircraft.

Chartering a jet for individual trips represents the most flexible method of aircraft access available in the market. Clients can customize their specific charter flight on a per-trip basis and as needed, without any long-term commitments or obligations.

Charter Your Private Jet Wherever, Whenever

Chartering a jet on an as-needed basis offers unparalleled freedom and control over your travel. No other flying method provides the same degree of flexibility as arranging flights on a per-trip basis. With ad-hoc private jet charters, you encounter no blackout dates and can often fly at the last minute, accommodating almost all scenarios.

While chartering a jet as needed typically offers unparalleled flexibility, there are exceptions. For instance, arranging a last-minute flight at 2 am from a remote location on a Saturday night during peak holiday seasons may be challenging due to limited availability of aircraft and crew.

However, on-demand private jet chartering also allows you to capitalize on one-way specials and empty-leg flights when they align with your schedule, potentially offering substantial savings. As you’re not committed to a specific operator or aircraft, you have the freedom to choose the best option for each trip.

Significant discounts are sometimes available for last-minute charters if the aircraft is already heading in your direction, sometimes saving up to 75% compared to standard rates. At Velocity, we provide access to an extensive selection of private jet empty-leg flights through various air charter platforms and communities.

With a 2-hour call out for pilots, we often can have you airborne with as little as 4 hours’ notice, and our record time is 45 minutes from call to takeoff. Once the charter is confirmed and paid for, the aircraft is readied for immediate departure.

Private jet charters offer unique benefits not available through other travel methods like whole or fractional ownership or fixed hourly jet cards. While these alternatives also provide quick travel options, none match the ease and flexibility of a single private jet charter.
