Obviously, private jets don’t land on small grass runways, but the reality is that a private jet has much more flexibility than a large commercial jet in where it chooses to land. Private jets are smaller with shorter landing and takeoff distance requirements, therefore a jet from N-Jet can often take you much closer to your destination than any commercial flight could.
Indeed, not just because of nearness to the final destination, it is more advantageous for our passengers to land at small airports.
Holds and delays — Large airports use flight sequencing to bring aircraft in according to their size, scheduled arrival, and other issues like the amount of fuel remaining. It is quite common for private aircraft to be placed in holding patterns while commercial flights are allowed to land. This can be avoided by using smaller airfields.
Approach and landing — Smaller private aircraft approach and land on runways at lower speeds than commercial aircraft. This can create issues at large airports if a private aircraft is being followed by, say, a wide-bodied aircraft. It can force the smaller aircraft to land and even taxi at higher speeds than normal, which can be uncomfortable for the passengers. Even the longer runways at large airports can be a problem since the smaller private aircraft can be forced to exit the runway far away from their final parking area, creating additional delays.
Parking — Large commercial airfields may not be private jet friendly for aircraft parking, requiring overnight visitors to park the aircraft far away from the FBO. This adds complexity to get the jet ready for its passengers and makes it less convenient for loading and departure the next day.
Customs clearance — Customs procedures at smaller airports are often more efficient and less obtrusive than at large airports. Customs at commercial airports treat all aircraft large and small with the same procedures which can cause delays and less convenience.
Delays leaving the airport — Private jet passengers landing at large airports are subject to the same frustrating delays caused by heavy local traffic often found at these locations. Smaller airfields tend not to have congested roads, offering significant time savings once the flight has landed.
So take advantage of smaller airfields by using N-Jets’s fleet of private jets to get you quickly, safely, and comfortably to your destination. We can fly into many smaller airfields not accessible by commercial flights, travel with N- Jet.
