There are many advantages that go along with using private aviation rather than traditional commercial airlines when flying. One of the biggest benefits has to do with security – in more ways than one. These are a few ways private jet travel is the only way to go if convenience and expedience are important to you while traveling.
Skip the Long Waits in Security Lines
This does not mean, by any means, that flying via private jet is less safe than commercial aviation or that any corners are cut; much to the contrary. Since you and your guests (coworkers, friends, family, etc.) are the only ones, other than your flight crew on the flight, you don’t have to worry about the potential security risks of others on the flight. Security lines are not necessary as you will usually be taking off from a different facility than commercial flight passengers. This facility is called an FBO (fixed base operator) and it is typically small and remarkably uncrowded.
Why is Skipping Security Lines so Beneficial to Passengers?
Security checkpoints located throughout commercial airports are time consuming and inconvenient. You have to empty your pockets, take off your shoes and jacket, and remove your devices from your baggage. Long lines can even cause people to miss their flights. It’s a hassle that either requires passengers to arrive several hours ahead of time, wasting either more time or run the risk of missing a flight (and all the hassle that goes along with it). Neither prospect is exactly attractive.
Yet another benefit of private jet travel is that your jet will not leave without you. Whether you are a few minutes late (or a few minutes early, for that matter), your jet will be ready for take off when you arrive. That is something commercial jets are unlikely to do for the average passenger.
For business travelers, in particular, saving time saves money. All the time that is not wasted going through security checkpoints or waiting to board the plane afterwards is no concern on private jets. And neither is the anxiety and frustration associated with them.
Other Security Benefits of Flying Private Jets
It is not just the security lines that are so bothersome to many passengers when it comes to security. It’s also the rules and regulations. Flying on a private jet restores your freedom to pack full-sized moisturizers, shampoos, and conditioners.
You can even wear the shoes of your choice because you do not have to worry about getting them on and off quickly at security checkpoints. You don’t even have to worry about wearing practical or comfortable shoes. You can opt for mile-high heels without paying a hefty and painful price for doing so.
