Private Jet Travel: Understanding the Options  

October 2003 



Key Areas to Consider When Evaluating Block-Frax 

•  Whether usage will be lower than the 50-hour typical Fractional minimum 
•  Typical travel patterns 
•  Speed of aircraft chosen (as some fees are driven by flight time) 
•  Size and age of the affiliated Fractional network 
•  Service level guarantees 
•  Up-front payment 
•  Carry-forward allowances 
•  Potential limitations on downgrades and, especially, upgrades 
•  Whether a rewards program is offered 

"Chartering a plane, either directly from a charter company or through a charter broker, is often the most cost effective way to fly private."
