2023 is shaping up to be a big year for business travel. Flying by private jet charter is an increasingly attractive option for companies and corporations returning to travelling for business.

The past few years have been challenging for the aviation sector, which in turn, across the industry there has been a significant decline in business travel. However, the private aviation sector is poised for a comeback bigger and better than ever. 

According to the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), almost nine in ten suppliers (86%) expect that spending by corporate customers in 2023 will be much higher (26%) or somewhat higher (60%) compared to 2022. 

Air Charter Scotland has built a reputation as one of the most reliable private jet operators in the UK and is the preferred private jet operator for some of the world’s largest businesses. We are committed to doing everything possible to exceed all expectations. 

1. Enhanced Safety

Safety considerations are driving many individuals and companies to look to private aviation for their business travel requirements. At Air Charter Scotland, we’re committed to doing everything possible to exceed all expectations for your clients. 

We pride ourselves on our safety record, managing a fleet of business jets with bases in Glasgow, London Luton and Malta. We have a dedicated and experienced team operating under the strictest of regulations overseen by the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority, Transport Malta and the European Aviation Safety Agency. As an operator of public transport flights, we meet the same safety standards as Europe’s largest airlines, and we strive to better them.

2. Flexibility for even the most complex schedule

Of course, safety considerations are just one factor that is driving the return of business travel for the private aviation sector. Many business travellers are also looking for the convenience and flexibility that private aviation provides when it comes to scheduling and routing.

With Air Charter Scotland, our dedicated team will tailor private flights around even the busiest of schedules to ensure your clients get where they need to be when they need to be there.

3. Privacy

Travelling by private jet is a seamless process and offers a level of discretion and security that is unattainable on commercial airlines.

With Air Charter Scotland, your clients can enjoy the privacy and security of arriving at convenient FBOs as well as luxury lounges so they can prepare for their departure. Our FBOs provide VIP facilities with luxury lounges that boast the latest in technology for entertainment and communications. With a smooth transition from car, to lounge to aircraft, we put convenience and privacy at the forefront of the journey.

4. Business can continue with no distractions

Distractions and the lack of privacy on a commercial flight can become a real challenge when trying to continue with business in the air. Air Charter Scotland operate a variety of corporate jets on our two worldwide (UK and EU) AOCs – from business trip ready light jets ideal for three-hour bi-leisure trips to long range aircraft ideal for routes to New York or the Middle East.

5. Sustainability

Like others in the private aviation industry, we have placed sustainability at the core of our business. We made the decision to offset all of our flights, meaning our flying is now helping to support a hydro power water project located on the Du River in Hubei Province in China and also supporting our private jet clientele to reduce their carbon emissions. 

We are working with leading climate consultancy and project developer South Pole and we continue to progress towards a sustainable business future by investing in programs to address their operations’ emission, while channelling critical finance to climate action projects that reduce CO₂ from the atmosphere.

To further limit their environmental impact, Air Charter Scotland continues exploring additional Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) procurement opportunities worldwide and monitoring the development in this area. Produced from sustainable resources like waste oils and agricultural residues, the use of SAF in its neat form can result in a carbon emission reduction of up to 85% compared to conventional jet fuel.

A business partner you can rely on

All of these factors and more are contributing to a renewed interest in private aviation for business travel. We understand that timings, logistics and sustainability are essential for business travel and our team can manage every detail for your flights and requests.
