20 April 2023: Our private jet team is about to get the party started with a long lineup of private jet bookings for international DJs, chart topping bands and even national orchestras this summer.

Having earned the reputation for being the music industry’s preferred private jet charter specialist, we’re ready to fly these artists to perform in destinations across the world including Los Angeles, Mexico, Ibiza, Dubai, Belgium, Holland, Goa, France, Switzerland, Slovakia and Denmark, to name just a few.

Whether it’s a last minute booking, a delayed gig, a change within the entourage, specific dietary requests or the desire to bring a beloved pooch onboard, nothing is too much trouble for Smart. We  have, afterall, been providing a fully bespoke private charter operation, which accommodates personal touches on the most desired executive jets, for the last 18 years. 

James Gregory, Head of VIP Charters, said: “We always look forward to music charters; it’s fun, it’s exciting and you never know who you are going to be working on a charter for. Every request is different, depending on what the tour manager needs for their artist(s). My team will always source the perfect private aircraft option at the best rate possible. I am very experienced in working with short time frames and frantic touring schedules, which can change in an instant and can include multi-stops in one day and frequent passenger changes. We love the challenge and always ensure that our clients get exactly what they want”. 

Taking all the stress out of travel, including baggage allowances, branded cabins, in-flight dining and luxury airport transfers, Smart guests always travel in comfort and style.
