If you’ve never flown on a luxury private jet, you’ve never known the unparalleled comfort and convenience that such an experience can bring. There’s a reason why many high-net-worth individuals never go back to standard commercial air travel once they’ve experienced private jet amenities for themselves.
But just what are those amenities, and are they common on every private jet? Read on to discover the answers to these questions and more.
what are private jet amenities?
In a nutshell, private jet amenities are the special inclusions, experiences, or features available to private jet guests and passengers. Ranging from consistent Wi-Fi access to top-notch food and beverage provisions while on board, private jet amenities make your aviation experience much more special and comfortable compared to traditional air travel.
But don’t just think of private jet amenities as little goodies or bonuses you see when you board your aircraft. In fact, they’re part of an experience that begins long before you first set foot on your private jet.
In many cases, the amenities available on a particular type of aircraft may impact whether one plane or another is right for your needs. For instance, if you want to travel with a much larger group of people and ensure everyone is comfortable, a plane stocked with amenities and features for such a trip—like delicious food and ample sleeping space—sounds perfect for your plans.
Remember—the more details you share with your provider about your needs and expectations for your trip, the better they’ll be able to match you to an aircraft that makes your flight seamless and enjoyable.
what are common amenities when you fly private?
Since amenities can make all the difference between one flight and another, Magellan strives to provide memorable experiences and best-in-class amenities with complimentary services. Here are some of the things you can expect when you become a Jet Card Owner and start taking advantage of our world-class private aviation services.
private terminal access
For starters, flying private means you’ll have access to an exclusive, private terminal. One of the least enjoyable aspects of air travel is having to deal with bustling lines, busy airports, long security checkpoint waits, and the increased health risk of being around so many people.
Things are different when you invest in private aviation. Instead, you get access to secure terminals that only you and your fellow passengers may use.
In certain cases, you can drive right up your plane, exit your vehicle, and hop on board for a quick flight wherever you need to go. Private terminal access helps exemplify the luxurious and personalized experiences we provide all of our clients.
Even better, private jet providers can oftentimes arrange for ground transportation to or from your home or workplace to your aircraft. Ground transportation makes it easier for you to stick to your busy schedule without needing to worry about driving yourself to your waiting aircraft.
On top of that, Magellan Jet Card Owners are members of the Emerald Club and thus receive further discounts and extra benefits. Emerald Club members can enjoy ground transportation across 90 percent of North America’s FBOs, or they can opt to have a vehicle delivered within 50 miles of their office locations.
Ground transportation removes a lot of the headache and hassle from air travel. How many times have you worried about getting to the airport on time while juggling business meetings and phone calls? With this private jet amenity, you’ll never need to do that again; you can focus on what matters, like making sure your family has a great time or setting up your business operations while you’re away while our team delivers you to your destination safe and sound.
Once you’re on the plane, the amenities really start to show their value. Magellan Jets clients benefit from high-quality, in-flight catering. If you have an appetite for a light sandwich, a more substantial snack, or even a multiple-course meal, we can accommodate you (plus provide quality beverages ranging from champagne to bourbon to wine and more).
Entertain yourself or pass the time with magazines, newspapers—our Guest Experience Department is ready to go above and beyond to handle any request. If you prefer cuisine from your favorite restaurant nearby, we can order food from there and deliver it to your plane.
Whatever you need, we can provide it. As a Magellan client, you need merely ask, and we will ensure that your plane is stocked with the food and beverages you prefer throughout your travel plans.
comfort and relaxation
Of course, private jet amenities are nothing without adequate comfort in which to enjoy them. That’s why the seating for private jets offers unparalleled comfort, providing you and your fellow passengers with plenty of room to stretch out your legs or adjust your position for maximum enjoyment and rest. Oftentimes, the seats on private jets also swivel, turn, and float out. This adjustability provides a level of comfort that is simply not accessible on commercial aircraft.
The jets we offer to our clients feature interiors designed to look like the high-quality apartments, hotel rooms, and other accommodations that our guests are used to. And, depending on the layout of your private jet, you may be able to recline and relax on couches, duvets, beds, and other comfortable surfaces.
There’s no need to worry about comfort on long flights, either. With private jets from Magellan, you’ll find accessible, spacious lavatories with extra room to move around. Certain jet models even include showers, full-size bedrooms with queen-size beds, lounges, business rooms— ou name it. If there’s something you need, there’s a private jet that offers it as an amenity.
wi-fi access and state-of-the-art technology
Sometimes, you need to get work done while on the go. That’s why many of the best private jet amenities include Wi-Fi access for high-speed Internet connections and state-of-the-art technology so you can tackle work in between your destinations.
Choose a plane with an office in the sky, and you can use phones, telecommunications software, and much more. Many private aircraft even have adjustable work tables that pull out from the sides. Designed for your comfort, these tables can be easily stowed away when you aren’t working. It’s a perfect way to hold meetings and ensure that business runs smoothly while you are away.
Alternatively, you can enjoy tech amenities and entertainment systems to stream your favorite TV, movies, and music straight to your private jet lounge or bedroom. Unlike the flights you might be used to, private jets offer highly pressurized, very quiet cabins and rest areas, so you experience less jet lag and can sleep soundly over longer flights.
Certain jets even offer temperature controls so you can custom-tune temperatures across several different zones or rooms.
We understand that many of our high-net-worth clients are extremely busy, which doesn’t always leave enough time for special occasions in life. That’s why Magellan’s amenities include onboard experience delivery.
Have a birthday you want to celebrate? Want to make sure your spouse knows you remembered your anniversary? Or are you treating your child to a college tour?
In these instances and more, we can personalize your experience by offering special foods and beverages, decorating your plane according to the event, stashing an anniversary gift in a secret space, and much more. If you’re flying for a special occasion, all you have to do is tell Magellan Jets’ Guest Experience Team, and we’ll work to make your flight a special and memorable one. That’s our guarantee.
