Flying Private

Nalin Gupta is the founder of The Social Network, a social networking group of HNWI  with members from around the globe. Recently The Social Network tied up with JetExpress which runs private charter company within Europe. In an exclusive to www.luxepointindia.com he talks about his fabulous experience of flying private:

I flew in the brand new aircraft Cessna Citation from Poland to Germany. It's a great 2 engine plane and technically as sophisticated and fast as a larger plane. The Citation business jets offer simple and elegant engineering, peerless high performance and are designed to be pilot-friendly. It was a super smooth flight. Taking off and landing at private airports and giving you great comfort with no crowd or lines for anything at all. The luxury of having to not to do the usual and get the absolute luxe experience is what the private jet experience is all about.

The unique size and weight of the Citation Mustang allows Jetexpress to use less congested and smaller airports, bypassing major commercial airports, reducing your door-to-door travel time. As soon as your JetExpress jet has landed you can often clear customs at the aircraft and disembark immediately and transfer to you awaiting ground transportation avoiding lengthy queues and luggage collect ion. It's a feeling of relief as it gives you plenty of extra time to plan and be in time for your apre-scheduled meetings and appointments. Unlike commercial flight you also don't have to arrive hours before your flight and be subjected to long security queues.  You can just arrives ten minutes before your flight and board your jet right away! Just to give you an idea it costs around 10000 euros from Spain to UK to hire a charter for a day. 

The experience is superb and I must add it is the fastest travel experience for short-haul flight. From the moment you book to the moment you land everything is taken care of. As you get seated in the plush interiors and décor of the airport be prepared to be mesmerised by the services offered to you by the expert crew.  Above all it gives the much needed privacy while traveling, comfort of not standing in lines at the airport, easy security checks and having a blast on board with friends and business partners and clients. Private jet travel is simply amazing, I have done it a number of times now and would love to do more and more in future.

Personally speaking the future of private charter of planes is rising. The social network and Jet-express are already in talks with Indian private charter companies for a tie-up as I see the industry filling the gap for those who need to make a dash for urgent meetings or just for a fun jaunt with friends and family to celebrate a joyous occasion.  If you are flying to Marbella be prepared to be seduced with beautiful and delicious gourmet meals dished out by Michelin star chef Dany Garcia in the Cessna.
