FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES THE CHARTER PROCESS WORK?
After your initial enquiry you will be assigned a personal charter expert who will send you a selection of quotes for you to choose from. Each quote will have a clear breakdown of aircrafts and airports and reasons they have been selected for you. Should you wish to go ahead they will then book the aircraft and send you all the flight details including directions to the terminal and any other important information. They will be your first point of call for any further enquiries you may have up to the flight and, if possible, they will meet you at the terminal. From your initial quote you will be able to contact your account manager 24/7 (if on holiday you will be assigned another account manager to cover) so you can call from wherever, whenever you like.
HOW DO I DECIDE WHICH AIRCRAFT TO CHARTER?
Your dedicated account manager will narrow down your best options from the wide range of aircraft available. Our advice is always based on your needs and requirements when assisting you with your final decision. You can view our aircraft guide for further information.
HOW MUCH LUGGAGE CAN I TAKE WITH ME ON A PRIVATE JET?
You will be told how much the hold can take on your chosen aircraft and can upgrade if you feel more space is needed. This will generally be far more than that of a commercial airline. You may also need to upgrade if carrying things like golf clubs and skis. If travelling with a gun, you will need to provide a license and the gun and ammunition must be kept separate. It is then at the captain’s discretion whether it can be on board.
HOW LONG BEFORE MY FLIGHT DO I NEED TO CHECK-IN?
Using private terminals means that you are able to check-in much closer to take-off than you could on a scheduled service flight. Sometimes you can arrive as little as 15 minutes before the aircraft is due to depart, and in some cases you can even be driven directly to the aircraft for boarding.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK A PRIVATE JET CHARTER?
ACS reservations are made on a case-by-case basis and are handled by private account managers. It’s best to book as early as possible to get your preferred jet. However, with access to over 50,000 aircraft worldwide, we can accommodate most travel needs, even last-minute bookings.
DO I NEED TO SHOW MY PASSPORT WHEN TRAVELING BY PRIVATE JET?
Yes, we always recommend that passengers travel with their passport and necessary visas, even on domestic flights. Private jet customers benefit from fast check-in, customs and immigration clearance for a convenient service.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO CHARTER A PRIVATE JET?
The cost of private aircraft hire depends on a number of factors. These include the type and size of the jet, flight length and route, amount of passengers and which airports you fly in and out of. Find out more about how much it costs to charter a private jet or get a tailored quote for your specific travel needs.
CAN I FLY ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD ON A PRIVATE JET?
Yes, with offices on six continents, ACS arranges private charters to destinations all over the world. In addition to private jets, we offer helicopter and cargo services capable of flying to remote destinations not serviced by commercial airlines.
WHAT’S AN EMPTY LEG FLIGHT?
When a client books a one-way charter, the jet has to be returned to its original airport without passengers, hence the name ‘empty leg’. To avoid flying the jet without any passengers on board, these journeys are often discounted by as much as 75% and are a great way to book spontaneous trips. Find out more about booking an empty leg flight with ACS.
WHICH AIRPORTS CAN I FLY IN AND OUT OF?
Private jets can land in major airports as well as smaller hubs not covered by commercial flights, so you arrive closer to your final destination. Most airports have Fixed Base Operators (FBOs) with luxury lounges for private jet charter customers.
CAN I HIRE A PRIVATE HELICOPTER CHARTER?
Yes, ACS has a range of helicopters available for private charters. Helicopters are more flexible than fixed-wing aircraft and can access remote areas and city centre locations, perfect for short taxi services to office helipads and isolated destinations.
