Easter Weekend by Private Jet
March is behind us and this year that means that the Easter weekend is almost upon us.
Regularly one of the busiest weekends of the year, we often see a surge in interest as people all over the world look to enjoy the first substantial break of the working year by escaping abroad for a well-earned break. This includes families planning holidays with children freshly home from school, those working in a corporate environment looking for a rest after the busy end of the financial year, and individuals looking to make the most of any remaining snow in the Alps before packing their skis up for the season.
It’s an interesting time of year, with many seeing Easter as the point at which winter transitions to spring, and we can all begin to look forward to the long, warm summer months ahead and put those cold dark evenings behind us. This sense of transition is emphasised by the varied enquries we regularly see for the Easter break. As mentioned, many are clinging on to the prospect of one last hurrah with a trip to the ski resorts of Switzerland, Austria and France, whilst others are determinedly looking forward, throwing off the shackles of winter as soon as they can and heading to the sunnier climes of the Cote d’Azur, the Costas and Balaerics, or the dusty yet enchanting Marrakech.
Given the high demand commercial airlines see at this time of year, with millions heading through Europe’s major airports, prices for any remaining seats – even on budget airlines – are often measured in the many hundreds, if not thousands of pounds.
Chartering a private jet for the Easter weekend is therefore a very realistic and viable alternative, with any discrepancy in price more than compensated for by the speed, efficiency and comfort offered, as well as the ability in most cases for private jets to travel direct to airports much closer to your final destination, and to which commercial airlines are simply not able to go.
This is even more so the case if one is able to take advantage of any empty leg flights that we are able to offer (see our regularly updated schedule of available empty legs here..)
