Private Jets

Imagine flying in an eye-catching private jet featured with ultra-modern amenities. As a first-time flyer, you must be thrilled to be a part of this experience. Maybe, you are feeling slightly nervy about the rules that need to be followed while onboard. Are you wondering about the jet etiquettes (politesse) that need to be followed while flying a private jet? Then, here are some tips that can help you enjoy your flying experience with composure.

1. Dressing chic

It feels good to be mindful of the way you present yourself. And, dressing appropriately for the private flying is appreciated. Flying for business? Then, dressing formally may help.

2. Arrive on time and park appropriately

A commercial flight has rules like arriving around two hours early. And, flying on a private jet this is reduced to around 30 minutes. In the context of time, some private jets may extend flexibility, but arriving on time is valued. Also, remember to use the designated parking area for parking cars.

3. Packing light

Private jets have luggage weight restrictions. So, travel light, pack absolute essentials and bring only one bag (as specified).

4. Carry identification

Flyers do not have to stand in long security clearance lines, but it is necessary to carry identification including a valid ID, or a passport (whilst flying internationally).

5. Drink and eat responsibly

Excited about the food and beverages on board? Treat yourself with food and beverages on the flight, but also be mindful against overindulgence. In case, you are allergic to specific food or have some diet restrictions, intimate the crew in advance.

6. Capture photos respecting privacy

Be discreet while videotaping or photo-shooting your aviation experience, respecting the privacy of fellow travelers.

7. Follow Pet-iquettes

Want to fly with your adorable pets? Then, focus on aspects like grooming of your furry friend, and carrying the necessary documents.
