If you follow American football or any sport for that matter, you know that during the season teams have a full travel schedule, traveling from city to city for games. With demanding schedules, teams must be on time, rested, and ready to play on game day.
While these travel demands may justify chartering a large commercial jetliner, or even owning a large jet, all teams depend on privately chartered aircraft to accommodate their team’s intensive travel schedule.
What are five ways American football clubs benefit from chartering on-demand private jets?
- Private jets can accommodate large groups. Clubs typically charter large aircraft from commercial airlines to accommodate the team, support staff, press and other individuals that travel with the team. An on-demand private charter is ideal for added flexibility for VIP members who are traveling with the team or for special cargo.
- Getting to the game on time, well-rested. In recent years, even with the large size of commercial airliners, the number of individuals who travel with American football players during the season has increased substantially, making airliners crowded and uncomfortable. Private jets can accommodate up to 19 passengers, providing comfortable space for passengers who need to travel separately from the main passenger group.
- Cabins are configured with privacy zones. Private jets are all about efficiency. Teams can utilize cabin zones to rest or conduct pre-game strategy sessions in privacy. Players and staff arrive at their destination rested, rejuvenated and ready to win. After the game, passengers enjoy a comfortable cabin with professional, courteous crew, customized catering and a pleasant flight to their next destination.
- Customized catering. Private jets offer customized meals prepared with seasonal, local and organic ingredients. Passengers enjoy the finest organic, locally sourced options with an extensive menu of well-balanced and wholesome meals for Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free diets.
- Personalized service and seamless ground transportation. American football clubs benefit from experienced charter coordinators who deliver seamless end-to-end white-glove service, from helping clients select the right aircraft for their custom mission profile, customized catering, to seamless ground transportation.
