If you often need to make flights on short notice or have an unpredictable schedule or planned route the total access that ownership provides is its own greatest benefit. With your own private plane there is no minimum call out time no concern that all the charter aircraft are booked when you need to make a critical flight. Even jet card and fractional ownership programs may take hours to sometime days during busy time periods like holidays to make an aircraft available.
For those who use the charter frequently there are a few options. One will be to opt for something like an annual pass become a card holder member which will allow for lot of added benefits cost wise. But take into account the membership fee` here as well. The other option will be to share the ownership of a craft like in time share. But this will include the aircraft maintenance cost as well and as you will be a part owner it is possible for two owners to demand the use of the craft at the same time. And always read the fine print especially for hidden costs like cabin crew in flight snacks etc.
This was the return journey home from our 12-day visit to Argentina which was booked several months in advance redeeming reward points from our Air Canada Aeroplan frequent flyer account. Given the great distance and long journey time from Canada down to Argentina comfort was a priority. So we decided to splurge treating ourselves to Business Class reward tickets. We actually boarded the flight at its origin at Ezeiza Airport in Buenos Aires Argentina for the short two-hour hop across the Andes to Santiago Chile.
