Airline vs. Business Aviation

There are diverse perceptions about Business Aviation. Traveling by business aircraft is seen as luxury and exclusive. This is wrong!

Business Aviation makes travelling easier, is extremely effective and saves time.

Some airlines also fly to regional airports. But the essential limiting aspect of flying is not the route network but time.

It starts with the extensive journey to the airport and the necessity to comply with the flight schedules of the airlines. Passengers then have to wait at the security checks and at the departure gate. These delays are often greater than the actual flight times and are therefore not acceptable for efficient managers and companies.

Business Aviation is not affected by these things. The airports' infrastructure takes sufficient account of the needs of Business Aviation and guarantees fast and discrete handling.

Compare a typical business trip with our example. In the end Business Aviation saves not only time but also money:
