While some people may be afraid to contact the jet operator directly, the new luxury jet owner may not realize that there are some benefits of doing business directly with a challenger broker.
I am often asked how it is possible for me to find a plane for my client when they can direct myself easily?
Let’s discuss this question in more detail. A new client who was once called explains the point of pain is to find the aircraft quickly and without all the “complexity” working through the broker.
He wants to know if we have suggestions about how he can do this alone.
Aircraft operator vs private jet broker: What’s the difference?
The first thing I did was explain the difference between aircraft operators and brokers.
Brokers are professionals that match the buyers and sellers together.
They specialize in various types of aircraft, but most importantly they have access to varieties that suit your needs!
The aircraft broker is professional for all types of aircraft. They can offer anything from company turboprops to helicopters, and even luxury jets!
In addition, they have years of experience with each certain type that can be useful if someone wants an aircraft that is not included in your usual repertoire – Say business flights or private jet trips?
When working with an operator, you get access to all available inventory at once, no need to dig a few pages or send a dozen email.
In addition, aircraft operators are usually part of a larger company so they can offer 24/7 global operations through experienced professionals who manage everything from maintenance to fuel and even your arrogance services such as catering.
Operators have existed for decades and have perfected their internal systems to handle complex regulation procedures.
They work every day with a broker so they understand how to negotiate good prices and often can beat a jet broker offer of 5-10%.
The time saved from going directly can be very important if you need a plane in a hurry or emergency appears.
Working directly with operators can be done remotely and through your local sales representatives.
If you like the idea of using your broker but do not want to lose the accompanying personalization services, some aircraft operators will really match their brokerage network so that you get the best from both worlds.
The key to finding a good aircraft broker is to do your research.
There are many people out there who want to take advantage.
Make sure before registering with anyone for the future they can get for what you promise!
The best way to find a good offer on your next plane?
Look who offers it!
The best way to find a good deals on your next flight is with aircraft operators.
Why experience all the problems when they have extraordinary offers just waiting for someone who is smart enough (and lucky))?
Operators understand that not all clients have credit cards or international wire transfers, so they will often receive checks.
They also offer an invoice for you to do through your company if necessary!
Some really offer a monthly billing program that works well for the professional service industry whose clients pay quarterly invoices.
