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.
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.
Aircraft charter rates vary by size of aircraft distance location weather flown etc. For instance an advertisement agency may charter a flight to an island with no proper landing runway or an oil company may charter a helicopter to fly surveyors to an oil rig on the sea - here depending on the risk factor prices may vary. But as you will notice you probably wouldn`t get a Lufthansa or a Delta flight to that uninhabited island or that oil rig leaving you with no other option but to charter an aircraft.
