Travel Etiquette You Should Know (Even on a Private Plane)

A private jet charter is the epitome of luxury air travel. It gives you flexibility, total control, the best service, and an overall seamless experience. And though this luxurious, hassle-free way to fly is clearly superior to commercial airlines, sometimes it makes people nervous.

But why? Is it because of safety concerns? Not at all, as private jet charters (especially those through Vault Aviation) are tested to the highest safety standards, as are the crew and pilots. But then why the worry about flying?

It’s actually completely normal to have some anxiety when you do something new, because all change (even good change) is stressful. But instead of letting that potential anxiety dampen your amazing flight, we wanted to help you feel more comfortable even before your flight with our top travel etiquette tips.

If you have questions about ground transportation, parking, luggage, or communication, then read on to have them all answered.

Parking Etiquette at Your Private Jet Charter

Did you know one of the many perks of flying on a private jet charter is that you can drive, or be driven, right up to the plane on the tarmac? No more lugging your luggage around or wheeling over uneven brick or stone.

And though this is a lovely perk that many of our frequent flyers enjoy, it can be daunting for a new flyer. Here are the simple steps you should follow in order to keep everyone safe, and your travel experience a great one!

  • Drive your car right up to the plane
  • Set your wheels opposite the jet
  • Engage the parking brake
  • Hop out of your car and hop onto your plane

Of course, some private airports will usher you through their expedited security process and chauffeur you to the plane themselves, but per your request, you can almost always drive right up if you prefer. Additionally, private airports usually have secure parking for your car, so it will be waiting for you when you return.

Bonus; ask your Vault team member to coordinate your ground transportation and parking if you don’t feel like dealing with it – we’re always here to help!

Luggage Etiquette on Your Chartered Private Plane

Another perk of flying with a private jet charter is the extended luggage abilities, however, nothing is unlimited, and weight still plays a factor with almost any aircraft. Though luggage limits depend on the size of your private plane, the average small jet’s luggage hold can afford 7 carry-on-sized, rolling suitcases.

This is fine for a couple of people, but if you have a larger group or a few individuals that are particularly fashionable, or if you are planning a ski trip with lots of mountain gear, you might need to check to make sure your private jet can handle the extra weight and space needed for extra suitcases or gear.

Of course, Vault Aviation will gather all the information about your jet size needs (for both luggage and passengers) at the very beginning of our discovery process with you. But if things change and an extensive amount of extra luggage will be needed, make sure you let your Vault agent know so they can keep your travel moving smoothly.

Communication of Changes, Needs, Etc.

The final etiquette tip for private jet charter travel is actually more for your ease and enjoyment than for etiquette’s sake – and it has to deal with communication!

Any time you need anything, from a change in flight times, location, day, plane, food, or service, you don’t have to run around trying to figure out who to tell. The crew? The airport of your departure or arrival? The pilots?

Vault Aviation makes it simple for you, as we communicate with all of the above, so you don’t have to. Simply tell us your plans, needs, wants, and any changes as they arise, and we will communicate with the appropriate party to make sure your needs are met or your changes are noted.

We don’t want you to spend hours calling different parties – that defeats the purpose of saving time with a private flight! Instead, just communicate everything with us, and we’ll take care of it for you. Because that’s what we’re here for – to make your travel seamless and easy, as we do the legwork.
