Recently, Smart Business sat down with Lea Williams, president and CEO of Georgia Jet, to discuss the benefits of flying with a charter company.
Why fly charter?
There are many reasons to fly charter. The most significant is productivity; the best use of your time. Whether for business or leisure, Georgia Jet can make the travelling you do more efficient and effective. There are three basic elements to this productivity advantage: time, control and peace of mind.
First, Georgia Jet puts time back into your pocket with every trip. Georgia Jet is a virtual “time machine.” We can originate your trip from any of more than 5,000 airports throughout the country (commercial flights only service about 500 airports nationwide). This allows you to depart from a nearby location and arrive as close as possible to your ultimate destination — minimizing commuting time and eliminating the need to slog through tedious security checkpoints and sit around in a crowded departure waiting area. These time-savings alone are reason enough to choose the charter advantage.
Second, Georgia Jet puts real meaning into the word “control.” We travel on your time schedule — not someone else’s. Imagine the convenience of making out-of-town business trips with your entire team in a single day — out in the morning and back that evening. Our aircraft becomes your flying conference room — coordinate, strategize and plan while en route to your meeting. Running late? No problem. We’re not going anywhere without you! Absolute control of your schedule can mean the difference between closing a deal or not closing a deal — ahead of your competitors; and doing it in time to still make that dinner date with a different client of equal or greater importance in another city or back home.
And getting to and coming from the aircraft is a breeze. In most instances you can drive right up to the aircraft, load up and be on your way within minutes of arrival at the airport.
Need to recap that important meeting with your team while it’s still fresh in everyone’s mind? Not a problem if you’re all together in your own flying conference room at the end of the day. Ultimate control over your schedule and agenda is reason enough to choose the charter advantage.
And finally, Georgia Jet can provide you with unparalleled peace of mind. In these days of heightened security, you will always know who is on the aircraft with you. You can rest assured that your conversations and computer screen are not privy to anyone beyond you and your selected traveling companions. No more worries about flying with an “underwear bomber” or screaming babies. Forget about some stranger sitting behind you coughing on the back of your head for two hours. Arrive rested and ready for that important meeting or critical negotiation. Peace of mind is reason enough to choose the charter advantage.
What makes flying Georgia Jet different?
Georgia Jet has only one objective — making your travel the best it can be. We can handle every aspect of your travel, beginning with our fleet of first-class aircraft and 24/7 dispatch services, following through with true concierge-style service and flight following personnel.

Who flies Georgia Jet?
Our customer base ranges from celebrities in the sports and entertainment industries to business travelers to vacationers — anyone who wants to manage their time better. With the ability to work within their schedule, we can get them closer to where they need to be — when they want to be there — and get them moving to their next destination or back home at their convenience. We are a time multiplier.
And yes, we see quite a bit of leisure travel at Georgia Jet! It seems that, once a business executive or celebrity realizes the value of the charter advantage, taking the whole family along just seems like the right thing to do!
