Enjoy Luxury and Comfort
Flying privately means not having to deal with crowded terminals, long check-times and not knowing the person next to you. If you choose to, you can hold a meeting, work, or even sleep on the plane, in a bed prepared by your flight attendant, with nothing to disrupt you. While your experience of comfort depends on the price and kind of air chartering service you hire, most private flights offer luxuries that you won’t experience in traditional commercial flights.
Have the Entire Aircraft to Yourself
Imagine if the only passengers onboard your next flight were those you invited. On a private flight, you can hold confidential meetings in flight, work without interruptions, or spend quality time with your friends and family.
Customize Your Itinerary
Create an itinerary based on your specific needs. While there will still be some rules to follow, your freedom to customize all trip details is a top priority of ours.
Access to a thousands of Private Airports
You can access a remote location or arrive closer to your final destination than a scheduled service would allow.
Enjoy Private Lounges and Terminals
- Avoid queues, unnecessary delays and board the aircraft minutes before take-off.

Choose your Aircraft and its Interior
With access to thousands of aircraft and numerous different aircraft types, we will always source the right jet to suit your requirements.
Avoid Lengthy Layovers
When you are flying privately, there is no need to sleep at the airport or kill hours during layovers. Never miss a single flight. Even if you are late, the chartered plane will be waiting patiently for you.
Have your Furry Friend right beside You
Sending your pet to spend a long flight in cargo can be anxiety-inducing for both of you. TAG ensures comfort for both you and your furry companion, without stress or separation.
Choose Whatever Cuisine You Crave
Even the most luxurious commercial flights can’t offer the kind of food customization you get when you charter a plane. Are you craving that haute cuisine with champagne? Do you badly need some dim sum? No problem. When you fly privately, the menu is entirely up to you— even down to the brand of your tea.

Top Charter Questions People Ask Us
TAG can fly you on any type of aircraft or helicopter, from our own charter fleet or our worldwide network of partners. We select only partners that meet our standards requirements to maintain the same level of operations and customer service.
This will depend on the departure/arrival destination and the airport requested. If there is an aircraft immediately available, a departure within the next 2/3 hours is possible, subject to permit and slot. However, in the case an aircraft has to position to the departure city, it could be much longer. We would recommend contacting us at least 24 hours prior to your departure time in order to have the best options available.
Private jets can generally fly you to more airports than commercial airlines, which can help bring you closer to your end destination. Different airports have different requirements for aircraft and crew, so it will depend on the specific scenario. TAG has a 24-hour, 7 days a week operations team that can support your trip planning and ensure your journey goes off without a hitch.
Unlike commercial airlines, private jets do not consume your valuable time. There are no lengthy immigration queues and quarantine procedures. Arriving 15-30 minutes in advance is more than enough.
For many of our clients, pets are simply part of the family. Unlike commercial flights, your pet will not be relegated to the cargo hold but can be by your side in the main cabin. We make every effort to ensure that pets are as comfortable and safe on every flight as they can be. We have worked on many animal transits and can provide expert advice on all that is needed to ensure their safe and comfy travel.
Having an FA onboard is usually dictated by the size of the aircraft, the flight regulation and crew availability. Anything below a midsize will most likely not have an FA onboard.
VIP catering can be provided subject to the aircraft type, the length of the flight and time of day. Everything we do is bespoke, so there are no menu’s; we tailor every request, even bringing dining from clients favourite restaurants. In case you are travelling on an aircraft that does not have a flight attendant on board, you will be offered a carefully prepared meal tray by top quality caterers. Let us know your preference and we will work on providing the best solution for you.
Any baggage restrictions based on the individual aircraft will be advised in the initial sourcing process and be made clear at the point of booking. Baggage restrictions are subject to different luggage compartment sizes of the aircraft and the weight limitations of each airport operation. Skis and golf clubs may or may not be accommodated. If you have any special luggage requirements, be sure to let us know. We can provide you with details of various space options to account for your travel needs.
