Rising Airline Fees Show Yet Another Reason to Fly Private

AOL Travel reported on their blog on August 13th about the rapidly rising fees for airline travel. Did you know some airlines are now charging you for carry on baggage and at least one airline is now charging more for seats closer to the exit of the aircraft—ostensibly to make the boarding and de-boarding process quicker. At Magellan Jets we know that you don't want to have to worry about endless fees and charges tacked on after the face. We always quote you all-inclusive pricing so you know up front how much your charter flight will cost. Voyager jet card members take it one step further by including complimentary ground transportation and catering! When you book empty legs with several passengers you can sometimes fly for less than the cost of first class tickets (not even counting bag fees, seat fees, and booking fees!) Live chat with us, call us at 877-550-JETS, or email us at [email protected] for more information!

We’re beginning to sound like a broken record. It was just in May that we last examined the extra fees increasingly imposed by airlines, and they are at it again. New fees, part of a practice dubbed “unbundling,” include peak travel surcharges, fees for standby, early boarding, and seat assignment, many sneakily hidden in the overall fare. The Department of Transportation estimated that now airlines present passengers with more than 100 additional fee options. So what do you need to know before you book?
