Why THE ARTS choose LunaJets as their private jet charter of choice

The Arts is a niche sector, encompassing the leading lights of opera, dance, ballet and music, as well as jazz, theatre and musicals.

At LunaJets, we look after key figures of world-renown that offer their wonderful creativity and artistic flair to the world, and we ensure that leading troupes, entourages and whole theatre, musical and dance casts are catered for as they travel and tour the world.

Private jet travel is a guaranteed way to ensure that world-class artists, ballet troupes, musicians, opera singers and performers - not to mention orchestras, ensembles and their precious instruments - travel in a manner that preserves their physical and mental condition, and reduces stress and down time.

At LunaJets, we understand the special imperatives for world-class singers, performers and professional dancers to maintain optimum physical health, and believe that private jet travel is the ideal way for these treasured artists to travel in peak condition, and arrive rested and relaxed.

Air quality and circadian lighting

Perhaps one of the primary concerns for musicians and singers is staying well and preserving their vocal chords. Air quality in the cabin of a private jet is superior to that of a commercial aircraft, not least because private passengers are not travelling with a crowd of other people; this alone greatly reduces the chance of being exposed to bugs and viruses, or catching a cold or sore throat due to poor air conditioning and air filters.

Fresh, filtered air keeps performers at their peak

In a private jet, the cabin air is particularly fresh: it is recirculated and refreshed with air every two minutes, avoiding stale air that can cause a dry throat or stuffy nose. Many private aircraft are fitted with HEPA filters, to ensure optimum freshness in the cabin. Furthermore, on longer flights, many Global and Large jets are equipped with circadian lighting, which mimics natural daylight and night, ensuring that passengers get restful, quality sleep.

High comfort for peak performance: beds and bathrooms for your performers

On longer flights, our exceptionally comfortable global jets means that your performers can truly rest and enjoy beds, bathrooms and showers to remain in peak condition. For example, these can be found typically found on the ultra-long-range Bombardier Global 7500 or the sumptuous Gulfstream G650 aircraft - the leading business jet.

  • The Global 7500 is extraordinarily spacious with four living spaces and a separate resting area for the crew.

  • The G650 is ideal for luxuriously transporting larger groups on longer-haul flights and even the most distant destinations.

Luxurious seating configurations within the cabins of many of the LunaJets private jets enable passengers to stretch and move during the flight, to rest comfortably or to use these areas for meetings and discussions.

Tour managers and music directors have the peace and quiet to plan in the cabin

We keenly understand that these logistics can quickly become stressful, which is why we invite music directors to make the most of the luxurious surroundings of the private cabin to check on last minute details, and even make telephone calls and stay connected to WIFI. Rest assured that superlative technology is available on-board, with superior connectivity in all cabins.

Access luggage during the flight, such as music, instruments or a change of clothes

Luggage can usually be accessed mid-flight, providing useful access to sheet music, instruments or a change of clothes.

Less travel, more time dedicated to rehearsals and rest

Performers with a hectic schedule can leverage the convenience of private jet travel with LunaJets to get a head start on their schedule. Private jet travel is particularly stress-free, so musicians and groups could easily travel to their next destination, after a performance, without experiencing the fatigue of regular commercial flight. This means that if they finish at the Opera de Paris, the entourage could easily fly into London in preparation for the next day, saving valuable time that can be better used in rehearsals.

On your schedule: planes wait in case of delays or rehearsals that run over

We also understand that those working in the arts work to an intensive schedule packed with rehearsals and opening nights. Your LunaJets’ aircraft is dedicated to your schedule, and pilots and crew are at your disposal. This means that if rehearsals run over schedule or performers or your cast is severely delayed, your aircraft simply waits. If you need to re-route, you can change course mid-flight.

An extensive network of accessible destinations and fleet of 3,800 aircraft

With a fleet of over 4,800 aircraft, LunaJets’ network of jets extends across the globe. We cater to international flights within Europe, and have luxurious aircraft to carry a whole cast on a long-haul trip to destinations in the USA or Asia. Charter a private jet with LunaJets and comfortably fly in a key team to a longer-haul destination, and still arrive refreshed and ready for world-class performances. For exclusive engagements in private venues such as a personal estate, chateau, resort or in far-flung locations, we have exceptionally reliable aircraft that can land on short runways, ideal for urban areas or island landing strips.

Helicopter transfer for onward travel to urban concert halls or private venues

When time is of the essence, LunaJets can also provide onward transfer by helicopter charter, ideal when transporting key figures to a central city destination or to a private location, such as a hotel, private estate or country house opera venues. Helicopter transfer is particularly useful in congested urban areas or for direct access to key venues such as a theatre district or opera house.

“Helicopter transfer is particularly useful in urban areas and direct access to venues such as a theatre district or opera house.”

Consult with your LunaJets representative if special or group meals are required, or if you wish to order in from your favourite, trusted restaurant. LunaJets can cater to specific dietary requirements, such as halal, vegan, dairy and gluten free or vegetarian options.
