It’s amazing what you can do on a mobile app. Order meals, book taxis...and charter a plane.
The New Airvel App
Booking taxis was time-consuming and unreliable – Uber and other apps simplified the process while also making it more personal.
Mobile apps are changing how we eat, whether it’s booking a restaurant table, counting the calories, or a Sunday night takeaway that only requires a few clicks.
Now you can book a private air charter through Airvel’s mobile app. It’s the fastest way to fly private, brought to you by the world’s leading booking engine for air charters.
The Airvel app is completely free to use and always will be. Yep, no upfront membership costs or cards. You just pay for the flights you need, when you book them.
What! Wait? Chartering a Plane On Your Mobile?
Most aspects of your life can be managed on your phone. So why not all your private air travel needs?
The private jet brokers aren’t happy of course. They’ve been cut out of the system, turned redundant by a contemporary way of doing things.
Jet card operators are also resistant and understandably so. When you can book an unrestricted choice of aircraft without any upfront costs, a 100k 15-hour jet card isn’t such a good proposition.
There are plenty of others within the industry who really don’t like the Airvel App. It puts power in the hands of the customer, taking it away from the secretive club that has traditionally dominated the private jet industry.
At Airvel we believe that air charters are not for the super-rich and famous. They are for the everyday. The luxury of private jets is saving time. So just like ordering a taxi on a mobile app, you should be able to charter a plane.

Booking and managing your charter
Booking and paying for a charter is also done through the app. Once a flight is confirmed you can share the itinerary with others as well as request changes. All aspects of the flight can be managed through the app, but you also have a direct line through to a concierge should you need assistance.
Sharing the cost of the aircraft with others
Regulations had previously made it difficult to book an air charter and share the cost with others. Airvel and the Airvel app has a solution to this.
Through the app you can share trip details with other passengers. Each passenger can then pay for an individual seat by entering their payment details. Once all the seats have been paid for the aircraft is booked.
Common Questions We’re Hearing About the Airvel App
So I don’t need a jet card?
No. There is no need for any pre-investment or any minimum number of flying hours. With Airvel you only pay for the flights you need. All you need is a debit or credit card to pay for the flight you book.
What aircraft are available on the app?
The App provides you with an unrestricted choice of aircraft for every flight. Most air charter customers find they need a different type of private jet for each flight they take, dependent on the distance traveled and the number of passengers. By searching all the possible options you’ll find a deal that is best for your specific flight.
Is it safe?
All charters booked through the Airvel app are FAA Part 135 charters. This ensures minimum safety standards and is the same governance applied to all air charters in the US, regardless of where or how you book them. Airvel also implements additional safety measures that go above the FAA minimum.
After I request an aircraft what happens next?
When requesting an aircraft your details are sent to the operator, who will confirm price and availability. Airvel does not own any aircraft. Instead, we connect travelers with operators. This naturally means there is a lag time between requesting an aircraft and a confirmed booking. We always aim to keep this to below four hours. Airvel will only request payment after price and availability has been confirmed. You will need to pay for the flight in full for the booking to be confirmed.
What if something goes wrong?
Through the app you have direct contact to an Airvel concierge. You can easily switch from mobile app to mobile telephone, whether it’s to make changes to the flight or request an air charter that is more complicated than most. By going through the app you can also alert the pilot if you’re running late or something isn’t right.
At Airvel we believe that everyone can fly by private air charter. It’s not a luxury. It’s a convenience, helping you save time and achieve more in your week – whether that’s getting business done or getting an extra night at home with the family.
Air charters remove unwanted layovers, taking you direct at the time that suits you. And getting somewhere at the time you want isn’t much different from taking an Uber, even if the distances are on a different scale.
So what’s next? We’ve got a number of enhancements in the pipeline as private air charters have now gone mobile.
So download the app and realize the full benefits of private air charter.
