Private jet charter safety & service

When you fly with PrivateFly, you couldn’t be in safer hands. Our Group Safety Officers – based in Europe and in the USA – report directly to the senior executive team at Directional Aviation, which has maintained an industry-leading safety culture over decades of international operations.

Our Group Safety Officers define and maintain our rigorous safety standards via a continuous process of auditing and certifying all our aircraft operator suppliers. This now includes assessment of COVID-19 protocols and mitigation strategies. Read more: PrivateFly’s safety policy.

Service is at the core of what we offer and in addition to our expert flight advisors, we offer a dedicated, 24/7 Client Services team. After a flight booking is made, this team works with the operator, airport and all other parties, arranging your catering, ground transfers and every other detail to ensure your flight is seamless and the best possible experience.

We maintain exceptional service levels, and many of our clients come back to us flight after flight, and refer us to others. We are proud to have hundreds of client reviews collected via the independent review platform Trustpilot. Read more: PrivateFly reviews.

Fly your way: How PrivateFly works

PrivateFly offers three different ways of flying by private jet: On-demand charter; the PrivateFly Jet Account; and the PrivateFly Jet Card.

With our on-demand private jet charter service, you book an accredited private charter aircraft, for a specific trip. The price given is for charter of the whole aircraft.

Search for flights

You can search for instant price estimates online or ask our flight experts for quotes. Either way, we’ll give you a range of market options for your trip, from our accredited network of private jet charter operators – who quote and compete for your trip via our unique technology platform. This includes priority access to premium aircraft from our family fleet – those operated by our parent group Directional Aviation.

PrivateFly Jet Account

For those who fly more often, we also offer the PrivateFly Jet Account and the PrivateFly Jet Card.

The PrivateFly Jet Account allows you to put funds on account with PrivateFly, so you benefit from seamless booking, enhanced terms and earn ‘fly further’ credits every time you fly.

The PrivateFly Jet Card offers fixed hourly rates and guaranteed availability on a defined fleet of premium operators and group-owned aircraft, with preferred terms and service. You can fly in Europe and in the US (via our sister company Sentient Jet).  

PrivateFly & sustainability 

4Air Sustainability ratingPrivateFly is committed to a long term sustainability program, and every flight includes a 300% carbon offset as standard, at no extra cost.
