INTERNATIONAL AIR TRANSPORT ASSOCIATION (IATA)
IATA is an international trade association which represents over 240 airlines, including the majority of the world's major carriers, including British Airways, Virgin and Emirates. Based in Montreal, Canada, with executive offices in Geneva, Switzerland, IATA's primary role is to help formulate industry policy and standards, while offering support services to all airline activity. The 3-letter airport code on your LunaJets' flight confirmation is the IATA identification code, the same as you see on your luggage when traveling commercial.
INTERNATIONAL CIVIL AVIATION ORGANIZATION (ICAO)
The ICAO is a specialized United Nations agency, based in Montreal, Canada, which serves to determine the official codes and protocols of international air navigation and the global aviation industry. It is not to be confused with organizations, such as IATA, as these are trade associations that represent specific interests. ICAO airport identification codes are 4 letters long. Our LunaJets headquarters airport, Geneva, is called LSGG in the ICAO's nomenclature.
An itinerary is a detailed plan of the stages of any journey or route, often in the form of an official flight document. LunaJets' skilled team of Private Aviation Advisors will find you the most affordable solution on the market, however complicated your itinerary may be.
Jet streams are narrow, high speed air currents that are found at high-altitudes of our atmosphere. These winds generally flow in a westerly direction and are found in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
Like Fractional Ownership, Joint Ownership allows unrelated parties to purchase a portion of an aircraft. The main motivation of joint ownership is the capacity to share the costs of the aircraft which no one party needs full-time use of. However, due to the fact that these owners generally pay a fixed monthly maintenance fee as well as an hourly fee, this results in it being more expensive than having LunaJets organize individual on-demand flights.
LARGE BUSINESS JET
This is a category of Business Jet to which aircraft such as the Embraer Legacy 650 and Dassault Falcon 2000 belong. Jets which fall into this category are generally capable of accommodating between 8 and 14 passengers and can complete up to 8 hours of uninterrupted flight. The LunaJets team has expertise in all Business Jet categories to find you the most suitable and best-value option on the market.
A layover is when, after arriving in a location, a length of time, often a night, is spent there before setting off again to a new destination. For the aircraft, the concept entails it spending this period of time away from its home base airport. Your personal LunaJets advisor can easily provide layover flight services and fulfill any of your other flight requirements, using professional experience to determine the most cost-effective and efficient option available.
A leg is a single segment of a journey between a departure location and arrival location. A complete journey may be divided into a number of legs for various reasons, such as for refuelling or a layover.
Lift is one of the four forces acting on an aircraft during straight-and-level unaccelerated flight, along with drag, weight and thrust. Lift is a mechanical aerodynamic force that is generated by every part of an aircraft but mostly by the wings. It directly opposes the weight of the aircraft and is produced due to the plane's motion, acting in a perpendicular direction to the direction of motion, serving to keep the aircraft in the air.
Those Business Jets which are classified as Light Jets are generally considered to be capable of accommodate between 5 and 8 passengers and of flying for up to 3 and a half hours. Due to their often excellent combination of value and performance, aircraft in this category are extremely popular for intra-European flights. LunaJets has access to all types of aircraft category, enabling us to provide you with the ideal jet to suit your journey.
LONG RANGE BUSINESS JET
Long Range Business Jets are categorised in this way due to a variety of features. They are often around the same size as Super Large Jets but differentiate themselves from this category due to their greater range, as their name suggests. Jets in the Long Range category, such as Bombardier's Global 6000 and the Gulfstream G650, can comfortably seat upwards of 10 passengers and travel non-stop for up to 13 hours. Every class of aircraft is available to LunaJets expert team so that we can advise you as to which is the best for your journey.
