Private jets, on the face of it, are a hassle-free luxury. But dig a little deeper and you discover that, while some aircraft are indeed luxurious, the means of booking them has historically been far from hassle-free. The concept of being able to charter a jet to meet bespoke travel needs was developed with efficiency in mind – to get travellers across the world as quickly as possible. And it’s true that, once booked, private jets provide a seamless means of getting from A to B. No airport queues; no waiting in line to pass through security; no hassle. Stratajet was founded in 2011 by Jonathan Nicol, a former RAF fighter pilot, turned computer scientist, and they boast the most sophisticated technology in the private jet industry, making it the only platform capable of filtering through millions of calculations in mere seconds to return all the available aircraft for any given…

Flying on a jet offers the experience of cradling you in comfort, luxurious surroundings, whilst receiving top service and furthering the olfactory experience, fine Michelin-starred chef prepared food enjoyed with a glass of champagne. There’s more going on than meets the eye with this experience – there is science at play and a multi-sensory experience happening. NetJets are Masters of Champagne, and they’d like to take you on a journey. Every taste of your Champagne triggers a fresh new flavour sensation, amplified and enhanced by sensory cues taken in from your surroundings. When you’re on a jet, it could be anything from the soft lighting in the cabin or the quality of the air around you to the soothing jazz playing in the background. Before that delicious syrup hits your palette, your experience has been defined by your environment. When you’re drinking your in-flight Krug Grande Cruvée, you’re doing so…

In 1986, the founder of NetJets was looking for a convenient and flexible way to fly so he considered buying a private jet. In weighing out the matters of ownership, the freedom made sense but where costs and responsibility were concerned, it did not. He then considered co-ownership however, there were even more issues. Managing the schedules of his intended co-owners proved impossible and there was still the issue of hiring pilots, hangar the plane, and managing its maintenance. All barriers at the time which also presented an opportunity. In this concert of need, discovery and analysis was the seed for a new concept in jet ownership that both fulfilled the desire for access to private jets with all the benefits also eliminating the hassles and unreasonable expense – the concept born was “Fractional Ownership”. Happy Owners and Grand Expansion In an interesting turn that speaks volumes of the business…

A day spent traveling can be taxing and tiring but it often doesn’t compare to the effects that we suffer after the flight is complete and we’ve reached our final destination. Jet lag can be a problem for any traveler who is crossing through more than one time zone. It is the result of our internal clock, referred to as circadian rhythm, being disrupted and causing symptoms such as sleeping problems, emotional and mental upset, disorientation or digestive issues. Imagine how wonderful it would be to arrive revived? There are some solutions which seem to help with the symptoms. Melatonin and Reducing Jet Lag Melatonin supplements are thought to help with jet lag since it is the hormone melatonin which regulates our circadian rhythm on a regular basis.  When we cross through time zones and experience light during periods of normal darkness and sleep our bodies regulating system is thrown…
