While it may seem a bit unlikely that a recording superstar and actor, with feature films like Independence Day and Little Man Tate, would have much in common with a name to be reckoned with in the world of women’s golf, but it seems they do. They both cite the same reasons for their love of flying by private jet time.
Harry Connick Jr. and Private Jet Charter Benefits
In a recent Business Jet Traveler interview, Harry Connick Jr. revealed many of the reasons flying by jet is so appealing to him, citing the time savings as the most valuable benefit, but also the convenience of private jet travel since private jets can land in airports traditional airlines simply do not service.
Harry Connick Jr. lives in Connecticut with his wife and children. However, he works all over the country, (frequently in LA for American Idol) and makes frequent visits to his childhood home of New Orleans. This grueling schedule makes flying via private jet a tool that allows him to work all the things he needs to into his day.
After all, this is a man who wears many hats, including:
- American Idol Judge
- Philanthropist (as a driving force behind the Musicians’ Village in New Orleans to help bring music back to The Big Easy after Hurricane Katrina devastated the region)
So, what kinds of jets does Harry Connick Jr. prefer? According to the interview, the types of private flights he takes vary according to the network or studio he’s working for, but usually take place on a GV, Hawker 800XP, or a Citation X.
Of course, fans are always welcome to charter flights to Harry Conick Jr. concerts. Here is his upcoming tour schedule to make scheduling your private charter jet flight even easier.
