Paris is one of the most iconic tourist destinations in the entire world. The image of the Eiffel Tower standing tall over the cafes of Paris is a beautiful reminder of how eternal design can be sometimes. or many, it is the ultimate declaration of love to be able to take one’s spouse to Paris. This begs a very important question. Do you want to take your loved one to Paris while waiting in lines at the airport? Surely, the guard frisking you up and down is going to put a damper on proceedings. Then when you are going to be seated right next to a toddler who is hell-bent on making sure that you lose your hearing, you realize that the love of your life does not deserve to have the knowledge of everyone’s body odor. You also have the additional realization that a private jet to Paris is the right idea.
Why You Need To Charter A Jet
Chartering a jet is often considered a big expensive gesture that can only be afforded by the filthy rich. While that may be true to some extent, there is the fact that charter flights can actually prove to be cheaper than first-class flights if you are splitting costs with a large enough group of people. So, ask yourself the question. Would you rather be sipping champagne with another party of four aboard a chartered jet or recording the untold horrors of commercial flights while you see the entirety of your romantic life go down the drain?
Forget the hassle of getting up at 4 AM to go to the airport and then waiting for hours in the lobby. When you are chartering a flight, you get to dictate the timings and you can fly at your own leisure. The level of convenience is simply so far apart that there is no way anyone can truly think that commercial flights are even close to private jets. Imagine that you have to attend a zoom meeting in the middle of a flight. The complete lack of privacy would mean that most of the people on the flight would get knowledge of your company’s trade secrets. While on the other hand, a private jet will afford you the space of being able to stretch your legs and relax all while conducting your business from your laptop. In fact, the beautiful view of the clouds from the extra-large windows is bound to soften the blow when your boss inevitably starts to torment you for one reason or another.
On a private jet, you have the option of tailoring your journey to your needs. You do not need to see all sorts of confusing schedules in order to find the one that makes the most sense for you. You can simply create your own schedule. There’s not even much of a compulsion to fulfill your own itinerary as most charter companies are happy to change your schedule even at the last minute.
It is also true that charter companies have to adhere to safety standards that are even more stringent compared to the ones on commercial airlines. Although it must be said that air travel, in general, is one of the safest means of travel. But when it comes down to the sheer odds of crashing, you are much safer being in a chartered jet compared to commercial flights. In the wake of COVID-19, being crammed onto a flight with dozens of passengers becomes quite an unsafe prospect. The idea of so many people breathing so close to each other in a virtually closed space provides an opportunity for making commercial flights the hotbed of virus transmission.
Perhaps the most important reason is simply how the time is spent. On a commercial flight, you hate the hours that you have to spend. In many ways, it is simply an experience you have to endure. I am a firm believer in the belief that there one has to make sure that there is no experience that one has to ‘endure’. Even in the worst of times, one has to make sure that the time one is spending has a certain degree of quality attached to it. Because if we lose that ability to enjoy ourselves, there’s really not much in life that is worth having. On the other hand, the time aboard a chartered plane is something that one cherishes. Being able to fly over the oceans aboard something that has been put in the skies just for your express need is a beautiful realization. It puts in perspective so many things. It lays bare the sheer scale of the earth and how human effort has been so fruitful in putting people on the moon and letting people commandeer steel birds far into the sky.
Jet Charter To Paris
Private jet charter to Paris is one of the most commonly requested charters. Its popularity is fairly obvious, with people making sure that their loved ones get to experience the very best that Europe has to offer on a special occasion like a wedding anniversary. For married couples, it is a great way to get away from the kids. While we all know that we love our kids very much, they are a constant hassle most of the time and everyone needs some time off from the sheer panic of being in a household with so many kids.
The cost of the charter can depend on a variety of circumstances. Let’s talk about the upper echelons of that experience. If you are going to charter a big jet like the Global 5000 from New York to Paris with its ultra-long range, you are going to have to spend nearly $70,000 on the experience. However, I must mention that this charter is going to be divided among 13 people and the cost per passenger comes out to less than $6000. A slightly smaller jet like the Gulfstream GIV will cost around 65,0000 USD to charter for 14 people, bringing the cost per passenger even lower.
Sights of Paris
There are simply too many places that you have to visit during your stay in Paris. The most obvious one is the Eiffel Tower. It has slowly become the most iconic representation of love in the entire world. They say the very air of Paris oozes love and this tower is one of the primary reasons why that is thought to be so.
The Notre Dame Cathedral is also high up on the list for many people. The Gothic architecture of the church is one of the finest examples of art being translated into the modern world while exceeding its original value. For people who like to pride themselves on their literary knowledge, I would like to mention that ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ refers to this same great building.
The Louvre Museum is perhaps the most definitive museum that you can see in all of France. It is an art museum like no other. In fact, the very building seems like a piece of art that few would be able to master.
For the history buffs among us, the Arc de Trimophe is a great way to pay respect to the people who fought so valiantly in the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars. It represents the toil and turmoil that war brings along. The people who fought and gave away their lives in these wars might have faded away but now this memorial still stands tall and tells the story of the brave ones who perished for values that they considered to be greater than their own lives.
Now, if you have a penchant for the truly terrifying, the Catacombs of Paris are a powerful reminder of our own mortality. This tunnel network now accommodates nearly 6 million bodies of deceased people. It was actually created as a way to counteract the issue of overloaded cemeteries. While it may have been successful in doing that, it leaves behind an interesting legacy that only the brave are capable of exploring.
So, this is a very short guide that talks about why you should charter a jet to Paris. The fact of the matter is that you should not deprive yourself of any experience just because it seems a little bit more expensive than the alternative. Life is short and the money that you will save is only a number in your bank account while the experiences you have will be the true treasure, always in the reserves of your brain.
