At Access Jet Group, we’re committed to creating a private airplane charter experience that’s customized, comfortable, and safe for all. But we also give special consideration to travelers with disabilities to ensure you can enjoy the same level of comfort, safety, and enjoyment as other travelers in your group.
If you’re hesitant to request a private airplane charter because you or someone in your group has special needs, know that we are able and willing to accommodate you with professionalism and discretion.
Here are five reasons why disabled persons choose a private airplane charter versus flying commercial:
1. More Privacy
One of the biggest reasons why anyone chooses private air charter is to enjoy a higher level of privacy throughout the trip. On a private jet, you’re not sharing seats with strangers and don’t have to wait for 100 or more passengers to get off the plane before you do.
Business executives choose private air travel when they have sensitive documents to review during the flight or important phone calls to make. They don’t have to worry about seat neighbors peeking over their shoulder while they try to take care of business.
That same level of privacy exists for those with disabilities. With fewer people on board, you can enjoy more peace and quiet and ensure that every need will be attended to in a timely manner.
2. Greater Convenience
Think back to the last time you flew on a commercial airliner: the walk from the parking lot to the check-in area, the length and wait time of the security line, the walk from security to your gate, and the time it took you to board and finally take off.
Many sources suggest that you arrive at the airport at least two hours early to accommodate for delays and travel time. It’s no quick trip going from your car to your gate, and for people with certain disabilities, this alone is enough to leave them exhausted before their flight even begins.
Flying private gives you the advantage of using smaller airports, where parking is a breeze and your terminal is within view the moment you arrive. You don’t have to wait in line to board your aircraft, security lines are nonexistent, and you don’t have to worry about getting lost along the way.
3. Easy Boarding
For passengers in a wheelchair or those with other mobility issues, boarding a private jet is relatively simple. You can be driven directly to the loading area, where security will screen you for boarding without having to get out of the car. Airport crew members are ready to assist you with boarding as soon as you’re ready.
4. Special Accommodations
No matter what you need to travel, a private air charter can accommodate better than a commercial flight. From wheelchairs to walkers, the Access Jet Group team will find a private jet with enough storage to accommodate your gear. We can also arrange for ground transportation once you arrive at your destination.
If you have a service or emotional support animal, you can bring them along for the flight. Most animals and breeds will be able to sit with you; however, some dogs and most cats may be more comfortable in a pet carrier.
Our goal is to make your entire flight experience worry-free. Let us know how we can help.
5. Better Security
Travelers who choose private airplane charters are subjected to the same high level of security as commercial travelers. However, the difference lies in the fact that smaller airports have adequate staff to accommodate security procedures, particularly for individuals with disabilities.
For example, if you’re in a wheelchair, security staff will come to you for your pre-boarding screening. You won’t have to leave your wheelchair and won’t be subjected to discomfort or embarrassment. Once you pass the screening, you can take your time boarding the plane at your convenience.
