There are many benefits to both helicopter and jet chartering. However, there are more times than you would expect that travelling by helicopter is a better option than travelling by private jet.
The Benefits of Helicopter Charters
Helicopter charters offer a level of flexibility not found with most fixed-wing aircraft. The most obvious advantage of helicopters is the ability for point-to-point travel.
Intelligently designed and highly adaptable to address a range of unique requirements, helicopters allow access to remote areas and city centres, with the ability to land at helipads, hotels and even private properties, where space allows, making them one of the most flexible and suitable aircraft types for travel to remote, crowded or difficult to reach destinations.
- No wasted time in traffic jams or getting to airports
- The ideal mode of transport for getting to more than one location in a single day
- Can land anywhere that space allows
When could you use a Helicopter Charter?
The versatility of helicopters means that they can be used for business purposes or for transfers from airports to ski resorts, yachts, events or sports stadiums. Say you have multiple meetings to make, a helicopter is the ideal mode of transport if you need to get to more than one location in a single day.
The Benefits of Fixed-Wing Charter
Fixed-wing charters or private jets also offer a different variety of benefits. They can reach further destinations, have the capacity to carry more people, and can provide amenities that allow a comfier journey, such as a bed or kitchen.
- Capable of making long and short trips
- Eliminate lengthy layovers
- Cuts back on time at airports and overall travel time
- Flexible, leave and arrive when you want to
In short, a helicopter charter is a great way to get around for shorter distances or if you want to get to several destinations in a single day, while fixed-wing charter is best for longer distances.
