Don’t believe articles that technology is lowering private jet prices. Promises of cheap private jet travel are often based on misleading press releases and a lack of knowledge
Promises of cheap private jet flights invoking Uber analogies and claiming technology breakthroughs that lower charter costs are common themes of uninformed coverage. The articles are wrong. Apps don’t impact how much you will pay. In fact, most online pricing tools for private jets don’t even give you hard quotes. They are simply tools to capture your contact information so sales reps can follow-up.
Much of the charter rates you see online are estimates. And for every slick app, you’ll find if you aren’t familiar with the industry’s ins and outs, it’s easy to make big mistakes when buying private flights. With COVID-19 causing more consumers to shop for private aviation options, if you are serious, buyer beware.
