Getting to Germany

Germany has some of the best airports in the world so you should be able to find one near the place you want to visit. That said, no matter if you’re travelling for business or pleasure, you may want to consider chartering your own flight to Germany. This gives you several advantages outlined below:

  • Check-in times and custom control is greatly reduced so waiting times are kept to a minimum.
  • You are not affected by industrial action.
  • Comfort levels are far higher on a private jet than on a commercial flight. Even first or business class can’t match it.
  • You can charter flights internally so you see more of the country thanks to reduced travelling times. Although Germany is well served by train and a massive autobahn network, it is far quicker to charter a flight to get from one place to another.
  • You’ll probably find a closer smaller airfield closer to your destination to use.

There are a lot of advantages of travelling by chartered flight.
