Holiday Travel Tips - Busiest Days to Fly

When planning your holiday travel for the months of November, December and January, there are a few crucial dates to keep in mind.

The most popular holiday travel dates (indicated on the calendar above) are expected to be:

-November 21st, 22nd, 25th, 26th and 27th
-December 16th, 17th, 18th, 26th, 27th and 28th
-January 1st and 2nd

  • Due to the increased demand for private flights, the system can be strained. AircraftFBOs, pilots, flight crews, caterers, and ground transportation all are affected and planning ahead becomes essential. Because of the increased demand for private jets around the holidays, prices can jump. Booking earlier ensures you get the jet you want at the best price.
  • Weather can also play a critical role in how many flights are available during this time of year.
  • The majority of people chartering private jets are flying in the same direction during the holiday season. Generally, we see an increase in traffic heading north to south, but some the most popular destinations are Florida, Colorado, the Caribbean and New York.

So what does this mean for you? If you are planning to travel in the next few months, we highly recommend that you book your flights promptly to ensure the best optionspricing and aircraft are
available for your trip.
