How sports clubs can maximise their members’ time by chartering a private jet for tournaments, retreats and events.

Whether you’re an exclusive golf club, an elite team of runners or simply a group of enthusiastic sporting friends, why not consider chartering a private jet to transport members to your next sporting event, tournament or wellness meetup?

At LunaJets, the costs of hiring a private jet for your group may come as a pleasant surprise, and there are myriad benefits that you may not have thought of, from easily transporting bulky and valuable equipment (sports clubs, elite bikes), to members arriving rested and refreshed, and ready to bring their A-Game.

Sports enthusiasts and those who passionately embrace wellness know that it doesn’t get much better than jetting off somewhere new for their favourite sport.

Whether it’s conquering a top-tier Masters golf course, trying out exciting new running trails or getting to a secluded beach to achieve those sunrise asanas, a getaway that includes sport is sure to get members fired up and excited.

Sports holidays: arrive with passion and a purpose

Sports holidays are unique in that everyone arrives with a purpose: each individual not only has something to do, they usually come away with a real sense of achievement at the end. What’s more, sporting breaks give people quality time away from the busy-ness of life to really focus valuable time on improving their game, skills or technique. All of these are key reasons to really make the most of a group sports trip, as they can significantly propel members forward, and take their practice up a level.

Given the real appeal of organising sports groups abroad and the significant benefits they bring, why not make the most of your sporting break for your club, resort or team and consider travelling to your destination by private jet, with LunaJets?

Forget the fear of lost or delayed valuable sports equipment Chartering a private plane from one of the many high-end aircraft in the LunaJets fleet absolutely guarantees your sports club trip will be a success. Private aircraft travel not only represents the epitome of luxury and comfort, but ensures a wonderful, hassle-free experience. This is particularly relevant when transporting premium sports equipment, such as golf clubs, high-end bicycles, skiing equipment or even climbing gear, which we know adds up to thousands of dollars per item. Group members will want to know that their precious equipment, which is not only valuable, but is highly personal to them, is safe and secure at all stages of their journey. Travelling by private jet guarantees safety and security of equipment as it is placed in the plane at the same time as passengers, and it can even be accessed mid-flight, if required.

With a private jet, you keep an eye on your sports equipment

When you travel by private jet, you will always have an eye on your luggage or specialist equipment. At a private air terminal, there are no lengthy security queues or time wasted waiting. Check-in typically takes around 15 minutes, and you will see your luggage stowed in the hold of the LunaJets’ aircraft. You can even access your equipment or luggage in-flight, if desired.

A well-planned sports trip to sharpen skills and technique

By practising your favourite sport in a new place, whether within your home country or abroad, club members or friends can challenge themselves in new conditions, adapting to new terrain or different weather. Adapting to new environments will sharpen your overall skills, deepen your practice, not to mention adding a renewed and reinvigorated dimension to your favourite healthy hobby.

Some of the benefits of taking club members to a new destination abroad include:

  • Optimum temperatures: enjoy different - perhaps more reliable - weather, such as cooler or hotter temperatures in which to play your sport (tennis or running, for example).

  • Inspirational landscapes: yogis can be inspired by new mountain or ocean landscapes to enhance their practice; climbers will also be thrilled at new terrains.

  • Extend the season: skiers can seek new slopes or extend the season by flying to higher peaks and glaciers.

  • New challenges: climbers can challenge themselves in new terrains.

  • New conditions: sailing groups can literally try out new waters!

Private jet travel is ideal for challenging terrains and hard-to-reach areas

For skiers and climbers in particular, chartering a private jet can get you to remote or hard-to-reach areas. It can also be combined with helicopter charters to get you closer to your destination or difficult-to-reach areas. We encourage you to call on LunaJets’ experienced agents who can offer and advise on concierge services, such as hotel or restaurant bookings, as well as helicopter charter and accessing out-of-the-way mountain resorts.

Did you know? Some remote areas are accessible by specific aircraft, which can land on difficult terrain, mountainous areas, or short runways. View the capabilities of the Pilatus PC-24, for example, a fantastic “off-road” plane.

Do I need a large group to book a private jet?

No. Even if you just wish to fly a small group, you will gain time and may even make cost savings by coordinating everyone’s flights to the destination. Once you have a date in mind and know the size of your group, please call LunaJets to discuss the best private aircraft options for your party.

  • Browse the LunaJets fleet.

  • Compare private aircraft with our Jet Comparator, which displays different private aircraft types, sizes and passenger capacity.

What if my passenger numbers change - will I need to change my aircraft choice?

If your passenger group size changes, call your LunaJets representative: we can organise another small aircraft to depart at the same time and transport your extra guests, or change your booking to that of a larger jet, or a smaller aircraft. LunaJets agents are available 24/7, and are totally dedicated to superior customer care, offering ultimate flexibility and responsiveness.

What are the hygiene measures onboard a private jet?

Depending on which private aircraft you select, the cabins will offer a variety of high-tech air recirculation systems or HEPA air filters that remove the cabin air while removing allergies, viruses, and germs. Your team will likely feel more at ease knowing that they are not sharing the space with numerous other passengers and that they are avoiding crowds at commercial terminals because crowded environments are a likely vector for the transmission of viruses and colds. Travelling by private plane is a lot more comfortable and hygienic in terms of reducing bacterial risk and exposure.

Read our dedicated article on private jet cabin air quality.

What if members in my team need to travel at different times?

Depending on the size and needs of your passenger group, LunaJets can easily arrange either for two separate aircraft departing at different times to transport passengers, or for the aircraft to execute two or three return trips.

Is food available on the LunaJets aircraft?

If you’re travelling with a sporty, health-conscious crowd, you will want to know what menu and snack options are available. Catering options onboard are as numerous and diverse as the LunaJets fleet of aircraft, although do note that Light/Very Light jets typically do not have galley kitchens on board, thus snacks and meal options are restricted on these types of aircraft. You can ask your LunaJets consultant to prepare something special, bring or request your favourite healthy treats onboard, or order from a nearby restaurant. Once you know the type of aircraft your group will be travelling in, you can decide the types of meals you will opt for onboard.

Who oversees our flights and travel coordination?

Your LunaJets representative will act as a single point of contact for your flights, and inform you well in advance of the check-in times and documentation requirements. LunaJets provides a luxury vehicle as standard from your guests’ home or hotel to the private airport terminal, as well as providing luxury vehicle transportation for your onward journey, as standard.

How cost effective is it to hire a private jet with LunaJets?
