What does FlyMeNow do?
FlyMeNow arranges private travel on charter aircraft. We have access to thousands of jet planes, turboprops and helicopters across the world. Through us, travellers can quickly and easily book a their own plane or helicopter to and from the places of their choice. They tell us where they're going and when, and we sort it out.
What does chartering an aircraft mean exactly?
It means an individual or group enjoys access to the entire aircraft, rather than buying seats as on a scheduled airliner. The customer sets the schedule, deciding when they fly, where from and on what type of aircraft.
What are the benefits?
The benefits are speed, convenience, privacy and comfort. There are no cancellations or rescheduled flights, and no hanging about for hours at airports waiting for check-in, security checks or baggage handling. FlyMeNow customers are on the aircraft almost immediately and their bags are packed at the same time. They are in the air straight away and arrive as near to their ultimate destination as is possible. Whether travelling by helicopter, turboprop or private jet, they will enjoy a journey of unparalleled comfort.
Won't chartering a plane be hugely more expensive than flying on a scheduled airline?
Not necessarily. Customers might even end up saving money when all costs are taken into account. If you charter a plane, all the seats are yours. Fill them all and the price isn't that much higher than on a scheduled airliner. And don't forget that we can save customers huge amounts of time and money by flying when they want, and not when an airline wants. Business executives can get to their meeting on the continent and back in one day, saving on accommodation and other costs. There is also the possibility of substantial discounts by taking advantage of an empty leg.
What's an empty leg?
It's the return flight of a plane that has been booked to fly in only one direction. It has to fly back anyway, and fuel and aircrew still have to be paid for, so rather than fly empty, travellers can get a hugely discounted fare to fill the seats. Customers can submit a bid to FlyMeNow and we will see whether the charter operators will accept this or make an alternative offer to you.
Is it safe?
Passengers' health and safety are our highest priority. Charter aircrew are subject to strict regulations and have thousands of hours flying experience. All our aircraft are subject to the same stringent checks and maintenance as on scheduled airlines. And don't forget you'll often be flying out of smaller, less congested airports.
Is it easy to book a flight with FlyMeNow?
Yes. We have invested in a groundbreaking website which allows travellers to enter details of their departure point and destination anywhere in the world, their date of travel and preferred aircraft. The website will estimate the cost, and then the flight is easy to confirm by contacting the FlyMeNow Operations Centre on +44(0)207 100 9000. Our charter professionals are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
What sort of aircraft do you have?
We have access to more than 5,000 aircraft available for charter around the world, including private jets, turboprops and helicopters.
Can FlyMeNow arrange more than flights?
Yes. We can help you organise access to major sporting or other events, arrange in-flight catering to customers' specifications, lay on chauffeured cars to take travellers to their final destination point, and recommend the finest accommodation. In other words, FlyMeNow can take care of every aspect of the trip.
