The Best Ways To Save Money When Flying By Private Jet
Most people tend to assume that taking a private jet is automatically going to be an expensive option. However, it’s interesting to note that there are actually several ways in which you can save money and still enjoy private air travel. With the rise of today’s shared economy, on-demand jet charters have entered the mainstream. When paired with the latest technology like the JetSmarter App, it’s easy to see how flying on a private jet is increasingly accessible.
 
While taking a private jet is always going to cost more than flying on a commercial airline, it’s still possible to save money when booking your trip. Everyone wants to save money, and nobody should pay more than is strictly necessary for anything – and that includes private jet charters. So, how can your business save money when booking a private flight? Here are some top tips to help you make some price cuts and help to improve the health of your bank balance.
 

Compare Your Options

The first top tip for saving money when booking a private jet is to shop around. No matter what you buy, you should always contrast and compare the options open to you, so make sure you do the same when trying to arrange private air travel. Look at all the dates, departure times and classes of aircraft to find the option that offers you the best value while also fitting around your requirements.
 

Choose The Type Of Aircraft Carefully

There are lots of different types of private aircraft to pick from. It stands to reason that prices will increase according to the size of the aircraft you choose. You should familiarise yourself with the range of every type of aircraft and then book the one that suits your trip. There’s no point in booking and paying for a heavy jet if a light aircraft would perfectly fit the bill. While you’re considering which aircraft to choose, look at its age too. An older private jet will still be very safe and have excellent amenities but will usually be more affordable to charter than a brand new jet.
 

Fly An Empty Leg

 
A great way of saving money on your private jet is to search for deals on “empty legs”. This is a term used to describe an aircraft which is flying empty for repositioning purposes or is returning for a charter which has already been booked. If your final destination happens to be where one of these empty jets is heading, you can get onboard at a lower cost. This is where the latest apps can come in, offering you real-time updates on flight itineraries for empty leg flights.
 

Make Sharing A Possibility

A revolutionary but highly effective way to save money on your private jet charter is to take a shared flight. Numerous companies now offer so-called “crowdfunded” flights, so you can take advantage of their money-saving potential.
 

Consider A Regional Airport

A top advantage of taking a private jet rather than a commercial airline is that you can access many more regional airports around the world. These give you greater choice and often enable you to get closer to your destination, saving you time and money as well as a lower overall cost, since flying into smaller regional airports is usually cheaper than flying into major commercial airports.
 

Know If You Should Be Booking A Round Trip Or One-Way Trip

If you’re going to be in one location for a couple of days, you might find that you get a better price on booking two one-way charters instead of a round trip. Round trip charters incur additional fees to cover the time when your jet is grounded waiting for you to return home.
 

Avoid Travelling At Peak Times

Private jets and commercial flights have one thing in common. Both are more costly to book if you’re travelling at a peak time. Usually, these peak periods occur before or after a major event or holiday. At busy times of the year, private jets have scarce availability, and this means that prices rise considerably. Choose an off-peak time and day to fly to your destination and you could find that you make a significant saving.
 

Flying By Private Charter Needn’t Break The Bank

Although taking a private jet to your destination is never going to be the cheapest option, it can certainly be a good value choice if you take the right approach. Follow these top tips and you’ll find that you can make significant savings on your trip, no matter what type of aircraft you choose or which destination you’re heading to. Saving money is always going to be a priority, so make sure that you put as much effort into reducing the cost of your private jet charter as you do into any other purchase.

    Two Directors Resign from Zee citing Mismanagement
    Two directors Subodh Kumar and Neharika Vora have resigned from Zee's Board, citing laxity in spending of CSR amounts, non implementation of certain decisions of the Board's earlier meetings among others, hinting at mismanagement in the company.
     
    Apart from Kumar and Vora, Zee informed the exchanges on Wednesday that Sunil Sharma (Independent Director) has resigned subsequent to the sale of shares by the promoter group, and reconstitution of the Board.
     
    The two directors had broached concerns like: "Non implementation of certain decisions of the Board meeting held on October 17, 2019 relating to treasury operations and no action on large outstanding from Dish TV and Siti cable for the content supplied by ZEEL".
     
    On the CSR fund issue, the company said that the CSR funds have been allocated in compliance with the law (and this has been certified by the chairman of the CSR committee) and necessary certification obtained.
     
    "A scheduled bank had appropriated Rs 200 crore of the company's fixed deposits towards promoter loans and the management did not take legal action," the directors said.
     
    To which the company said that the issues pertaining to the wrongful revocation of the bank guarantee stand resolved with the company having being secured by the promoter companies and appropriate legal notices were sent to the bank at the relevant time.

    Govt to offer lucrative deal for Air India sale: Puri
    Union Minister for Civil Aviation Hardeep Singh Puri said on Wednesday that he is hopeful that concrete offers will come for Air India's sale as terms for the bid are being revised in a big way.
     
    "Last time the government was holding 26 per cent stakes in Air India but now things have changed...and it seems that buyers will come forward to make offer for AI, the flag carrier airline of India," said Puri.
     
    In an exclusive interview to IANS, Puri said that operating costs cannot be met with existing structure and its high time to sell Air India which at present has one of the most modern fleet in the industry.
     
    "If situation prolongs, a time will come when Finance Ministry will not support us financially. Then we have only one option left... to approach the banks to keep Air India flying," said Puri who also holds the important portfolio of Urban Development.
     
    When asked that earlier the government had invited bid for Air India but the response was not encouraging, the minister said that government has now revised the terms which at present seems quite lucrative. The minister said he is hopeful that offers would come and the deal would materialise.
     
    On being asked about state funding for Air India, Puri said that governments has its own limits. 
     
    "For public sector, for instance steel sector, the government has a revenue base limit. It cannot go beyond a certain point to bail out PSUs financially. Even banks have their own view on this issue. So if you are incurring operating losses over a period of time, then people will say...'isko privatise karo' (privatise Air India)," Puri said.
     
    On the new bid offers, he said the process is on and very soon the bid will be invited.
     
    "Last time we were not privatising it (Air India) 100 per cent. We were holding 26 per cent with the government. But now the terms for bid are being changed," Puri said.

    What did Govt do to S/Shri P. Chidambaram & Praful Patel, former ministers in Indian Airlines Airbus deal ? Why did it merge IAL & AIL
    to save AIL? What did it do when AirIndia Ltd repeatedly promoted employees AFTER DIPAM notified not to do so? Why IAL pay Rs 40K hire charge to taxi agent to keep a SKODA Car in front of Chennai house of last IAL Director Finance Shri Chandrasekhar, so that a family of a prospective groom for his daughter can see it & wrong think that he owns it? It is Killing New AIL before it dies naturally. AIL does not want to give Medical care to Retired employees & Spouses of Deceased employees who PAID FOR IT. It wants to deny travel passes for which it charges Retd & Serving employees, though calling it Free. They are given ONLY if a seat is not filled by paying passengers before a flight starts. THEY CANNOT RESERVE & TRAVEL. They & Govt act as if they lose revenue. They want to stop these after privatising. AIL appointed former Vayudoot & IAL employees who retd in IAL on Contract needlessly like GM Pers in Hq & Chennai.
