Business Aviation Education from Aargus Air Charter Volume 1, Post 6
Unlike the scheduled airlines, where you buy a ticket for each person, business aviation is priced for the aircraft. Think about it this way. If you have a six-seat business jet, or an eight-seat turboprop, you’ve got all the seats for your use.
The price is the same no matter how many of the seats you fill. Many businesses make it a matter of procedure to try and fill all the seats. That’s not always possible, of course. If one or two people must go somewhere right away, some seats may stay empty because no one else at the company needed to go along or could fit a trip into their schedule.
But when trips are planned several days in advance, which is often the case, it’s pretty easy to fill all the seats, if that’s what your company wants to do. A senior executive who’s visiting a plant may order the plane; but folks from accounting, human resources, internal audit, or purchasing may also need to visit the plant…and could be asked to help fill all the seats.
Between company email and the internal “grapevine” you will have no trouble at all finding people who would much rather go on the “company plane” than the airlines, even if it means re-arranging their schedule!
