Introducing: 5 Private Jet Operators that Partner Charter Scanner
In the private aviation industry, the days of charter brokers and convoluted booking processes may well be behind us. Bringing air charter operators and discerning travellers together through an easy-to-use booking system, Charter scanner – a free service, created by technology and aviation gurus, Wagas Ali and Vladislav Zenov – sources the cheapest available private jet charter flights from its partners’ collective fleet of 3,500 planes. Within 10 minutes, the user is presented with a list of flight options that vary in time and price. While the booking service’s users may remain anonymous until the moment of booking, Charter scanner is fully transparent and shares its list of operator partners. Each of the company’s 150 partners offers an exceptional and personalised service. Here, we introduce 5 of Charter scanner’s partners to provide insight into those companies serving aviation’s latest innovation.
Currently offering 23 private aircraft in its fleet, but with plans to expand to 25 by the end of the year, Air Hamburg may not be the largest private jet operator in the cohort but it offers one of the most refined services. The company was recently the first airline to welcome the Embraer Legacy 650E to its collection, which underpins its dedication to uncompromised quality. The company was officially founded in 2005, but the company’s heritage predates its formation: entrepreneurs Floris Helmers and Alexander Lipsky started out with a humble flight school in Hamburg, but the business soon flourished into a successful private jet charter company.
Based in Austria, GlobeAir first launched its air taxi services back in 2007 and now boasts the world’s largest fleet of modern Cessna Citation Mustang jets – 16 in total. This particular model is renowned for its reliability and efficiency – qualities which permeate GlobeAir’s business. Among the fastest growing private jet charter operators, GlobeAir ensures direct access to 1,500 airports across Europe – many of which are inaccessible to commercial airlines. The airline has exceptionally high safety standards and an extraordinary level of service.
Part of Qatar Airways, Qatar Executive benefits from the experience and knowledge of some of the aviation industry’s leading professionals. Since being founded in 2009, Qatar Airways has grown in stature and reputation to become one of the leading private jet operators in the world, serving individual travellers, businesses, corporations and governments. The operator serves countries across the world, with hardly any location out of reach, and prides itself on its bespoke service and its commitment to excellence. Mr Akbar Al Baker, the airline’s GCEO, describes the qualities that discerns the company from its competitors: “today, Qatar Executive offers its most discerning passengers [many] benefits with an ultra-modern fleet of Gulfstream and Bombardier corporate jets. As part of the Qatar Airways Group, Qatar Executive offers you the exclusivity and comfort of a private jet and the global expertise and proven track record of an award-winning five-star airline.”
With a fleet of over 144 aircraft operating from 80 bases worldwide, Gama Aviation is a truly international private jet operator and provides passengers with the ultimate freedom of movement. Taking pride in the ‘reliable excellence’ that the company offers its clients, the airline ensures versatility, flexibility and reliability – three essential traits of any successful operator. Established over 30 years ago, Gama Aviation is now one of the industry’s leading players and consistently offers a reliable, punctual service. The airline offers its discerning clientele a range of aviation services, including aircraft management, charter, maintenance, engineering design, and FBO & ground-handling services.
‘More time. More comfort. More independence.’ These three commitments are promised by Air Independence, as part of their high-quality aviation service and the company rarely fails to deliver. Founded in 1998 and based in Munich and Salzburg, Air Independence offers owners both German and Austrian registry. The Challenger 604 is the main aircraft model in the company’s fleet, but it also utilises the turboprop King Air 350i.
