How To Fly In A Private Plane And Not Screw Up

Many of us, who are not celebrities, do not have the luxury of flying in private jets when we travel. You may be invited to fly in a private jet by a colleague or head of your company, an Arab sheikh. For those who have never done it before, it can be intimidating. Business Insider spoke with Andrew Collins, CEO at private jet company Sentient Jet for his advice. Collins suggests these steps for your first private flight.

Don’t wait!

Collins stated that Collins was able to reduce the time it takes to complete a business trip of a day by avoiding long security lines and delays.

But that doesn’t mean you have to be there at departure. Collins suggests arriving at least 20-30 minutes before departure, particularly if you are being greeted by a host.

Keep your luggage light

Collins stated that although the capacity of a jet’s luggage depends on its size, many private jets can carry more cargo and less baggage than commercial jets. I recommend that guests traveling on a jet have as few luggage as possible. This is especially true if you are invited to join them as guests and don’t know how much baggage they will be carrying.

Keep your passport safe at home

Although you won’t need to go through airport security, you will still need to have something to identify you, such as a passport, if you travel abroad.

Collins stated that this is a common occurrence and can lead to serious problems.

You can take water and other liquids aboard commercial flights but federal regulations regarding hazardous materials apply.

Be well dressed

“When you’re invited to fly on a private jet of someone, you are representing them. I recommend that guests dress appropriately when they travel as guests. Collins stated that Collins usually wears casual business suits.

You don’t have to be extravagant if you are traveling with family members or close friends.

Do not embarrass your host

I often liken being invited to a private flight to being invited to a dinner party. You have to be responsible. Flying in private isn’t an excuse to drink, so be careful. Collins said.

You should always check with your host before you post anything about your trip on social media. It is a private flight.
