How to Plan the Perfect Multi-Destination Trip with Private Jets

Mar 7, 2024

Taking a multi-destination trip with private jets has many advantages over trying to book the same trip on commercial flights. For instance, did you know that in the United States alone, commercial airlines are limited to travel to 500 airports, while private jets have access to more than 5,000 public airports and over 14,000 private airports. When it comes to planning luxury multi-stop travel, there are ways to ensure that you have the best experience possible while being cost-effective and maximizing your vacation time. 

A Step-By-Step Guide to Choosing Your Ideal Destinations 

The first item to check off on your list is knowing the locations you would like to travel to, and in which order you would like to visit them. Consider the routing and where the aircraft can land in each location when you create your itinerary and how much time you would like to spend in each spot. For example, you may want to take a cross-country flight from Los Angeles to West Palm Beach, but first make a quick stop in Las Vegas. Flying private provides you with the flexibility to choose from more airports to depart from and land at, as well as a wider variety of aircraft at your disposal.

Choose the Perfect Private Jet for Each Leg of the Journey  

Once you’ve chosen your destinations, you can now begin the process of choosing the proper private aircraft to suit your travel needs. Selecting the proper private jet depends on a few things, like the size of your party and how far each leg of your trip is. For instance, to get from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, you could book a light jet, like a Citation Ultra, which is ideal for short hops. For the next leg of your vacation, from Vegas to West Palm Beach, you would need to at least upgrade to a business jet in the super-midsize cabin class. A Cessna Citation X or Challenger 300 would be ideal for making this approximately 2,700-mile journey. For your return flight to Los Angeles, another super-midsize aircraft would suit your needs perfectly to suit your needs. 

One of the benefits of booking your flights through a company like XO, the world’s premier private aviation network, is the access that it provides to a global network of more than 2,400 safety-vetted private jets across all cabin classes, allowing you to customize your plans even further. This is immensely helpful in instances like the above example, where different classes of jets are needed for different legs. Our Sales teams are available day or night to answer any questions you may have about your private jet itinerary planning, including private jet booking tips.

Luxury Amenities: From Catering to Car Service for Your Private Travel

Now that you have chosen your aircraft, you can enhance the private travel experience by adding enhancements like in-flight catering, car transport, and concierge services. At XO, this is all handled by the Client Services team, who also assist with your day-of-travel needs – greeting you at the private jet terminal, assisting with boarding, and helping you with anything you may need before takeoff. Additionally, XO includes a Cabin Host on many of the large cabin jets on our most frequented routes for elevated service.
