Strangers on Private Jets – Kyle Patel, Director of Charter

Strangers and Private Jets: Good Combo?


My name is Kyle, writing you today about my thoughts on shared/group/shuttle private jet flights.

First and foremost, thank you for reading, I appreciate your time and value your opinion! Please don’t hesitate to let us know what it is or how we can help.

Sharing Chartered Jets – Wonderful Concept

I’ve recently read some covered articles on other jet companies which offer “shared” charters and “shuttles.” Unfortunately, none of the articles actually had much good to say. Because of this, I’m writing here.

Let me be the first to say, I love the idea. It’s a wonderful idea that 14 to 18 likeminded individuals can hop on an aircraft and have a great trip together. Maybe get some networking done, great conversations, socialization, and maybe save a few bucks. A cruise comes to mind when I think of this – awesome!

Contrary to the idea, I’ve recently heard about a lack of availability, discomfort, rude passengers, and a few other things I won’t mention.

Unfortunately, when put in practice, it seems that it has not been able to produce the results we’d like – after all, we are talking about private aviation here.

BitLux Values

Here are some of the top fundamental values that I had (and still have) in mind when it comes to BitLux and our service:

  • Safety
  • Efficiency
  • Reliability
  • Privacy
  • Convenience
  • Communication
  • Consistency

With taking all of these things in mind, the idea of jumping on an aircraft with people you do not know, working on things that are your business, your family, your time, and your hard spent dollars, doesn’t quite align with what I believe to be a private and top-notch service. I am a firm believer that a “jetsharing” business model is a bit self-defeating in the private aviation space. While a beautiful Gulfstream GIVSP may have several seats and plenty of space, but that doesn’t mean it will be comfortable at full capacity.

The Resolution

With this being said, I believe that you, the client, deserve all of the fore-mentioned values – in their entirety. This is why each BitLux client gets 1 on 1 service from our staff.

Does this come at a price? Absolutely. Jet charter to travel for business or pleasure can range anywhere from $2500-$15,000 per hour. But, let us be clear, these are your hours! Hours that you set! With the people you want and to the places that you want to go. If you’d like a quote, feel free to do so here.

The keyword here being, you, and that’s what we’re all about.
