Business Aviation Education from Aargus Air Charter Volume 1, Post 17
If the airlines don’t serve a city you need to visit regularly, you owe it to yourself and your company to investigate using business aircraft on a regular basis. Chances are, if you’re going to a city frequently, so are others in your company.
Did you know you could set up a corporate shuttle? While you might have thought you needed to fill a regional jet to have a shuttle, the fact is you can set one up for as few as three passengers using an aircraft the right size for the trip.
Even if the airlines can get you there, how difficult is the trip? You can fly to only 23 cities from Grand Rapids non-stop on the airlines. That means at least one connecting flight each way to go anywhere else.
The commercial airlines service about 500 US cities. To get anywhere else, you’ve got to drive…and that’s after making a connecting flight to the closest commercial airport. Business aviation serves 5,000 cities because business aviation uses all the public airports…not just the ones served by the airlines.
