Before my flight
How much luggage can I bring in a private jet?
It really depends on the type of aircraft you're booking, we recommend one standard bag per passenger:
e.g. 76cm(30")x40cm(16")x30cm(12") up to 23kg(50lb).
Since private jets don't have overhead storage, please limit cabin baggage to 5kg.
If you're planning to bring a lot of luggage or are unsure, please talk to us before confirming your booking.
How early do I need to be at the airport?
We recommend you arrive to the private terminal 15-20mins before departure to avoid any delays
What details do I need to provide for my flight?
After confirmation and at least 24 hours before the flight, we need to receive the names and passport details of all passengers flying.
Given the current COVID-19 restrictions, there may be some additional forms or declarations to be filled and signed. We will inform if any exist for your destination.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept all mayor credit cards, cryptocurrencies and bank transfers. Visit our payments page for more detailed information.
When do I need to pay for my flight?
All payments must be cleared before take-off.
Are private jets safe?
Our trusted operators have their aircrafts go through rigorous safety testing and checks and are certified by third-party organisations specialised in safety.
Private jets have the flexibility to land in many more airports and are usually better equipped to avoid, or even fly above bad weather, than commercial airlines.
How does Venicejets® ensure safety?
Because we consider safety the most important aspect when we offer an aircraft, we only consider options from operators that are certified and can prove they meet the top industry safety standards for both aircraft and crew.
What other safety advantages are there to flying private?
There is a great health and safety advantage. When flying private, most of the times you will depart and arrive from private terminals, which means speedy security controls and far less crowded spaces, and private waiting areas, reducing the risk of contact with other people from 700 "touch-points" when flying commercial, to less than 20.
How does parking work at an FBO?
Most private terminals have parking available, also, ground transfer vehicles can drop you off right in front of the entrance of the terminal where the handling agents will greet and take your luggage.
Please talk to us for information on a specific destination.
Can pets fly on a private jet?
Private jets are pet-friendly. Most operators accept pets on-board but please talk to us if you're planning to bring a pet on your trip, before booking.
Some countries have additional requirements and restrictions for transporting pets through borders, please contact us for advice.
What are empty legs?
An empty leg is a one-way flight that is available when an operator needs to position the aircraft from one location to another to pick-up the next client and can be purchased for a fraction of the price of a full charter.
We offer empty leg bookings however, because of the nature of the flight, they are subject to change or be cancelled on short notice.
In the case of a cancellation, you will receive a full refund.
