- Private Jet Charter San Francisco
San Francisco seems to be an ever-increasing preferred location for private jet charter travelers to visit. To better assist our customers in navigating some of the current hot spots, we decided to do some research and ask current customers their opinions . We’ve narrowed down some of the greatest luxury hot spots that private jet charter travelers prefer in San Francisco.
First and foremost, let’s talk about hotels… Because a good number of our customers tend to visit San Francisco on business, we seem to have a consensus that one of the favorite hotels is the St. Regis San Francisco in the financial district!
We gotta eat!! So where? Rumor has it a great breakfast/brunch can be found at the Lazy Bear. While not cheap, nor is the food! In fact, it is quite exceptional… exactly what you’d expect the discerning private jet traveler to eat while in San Francisco, at home, or anywhere else!
What about dinner… not only does Old Skool Cafe serve amazing food, specializing in soul food, but it is run by at-risk youth who are learning some great skills in the restaurant industry and it is keeping them focused and off of the streets. We opted to happily patronize this restaurant because we believe in what they are doing and want them to succeed in continuing to make a difference in the lives of at-risk youth in San Francisco!
San Francisco area airports:
Most people are quite familiar with San Francisco International Airport:

However, this airport is quite expensive to fly into and not the preferred airport. Metropolitan Oakland International tends to more convenient and more cost effective in most instances.

Teterboro Airport is one of the best airports available to private jets. As early as 1919, Teterboro was servicing Fokker. Later, in 1926, Colonial Air Transport became the first private company delivering mail and… you guessed it! They were at Teterboro! In 1949, Teterboro was purchased by the Port Authority and subsequently leased to Pan Am World Airways. That lease lasted approximately 30 years but was eventually turned back over to Port Authority. Since re-establishing full responsibility for the airport in 2000, Port authority has spent nearly $175 million in renovations, upgrades, and expansions and it now serves as a relief airport to the New York area. Most importantly, unless you have a connecting flight out of JFK or La Guardia… Teterboro will typically be the most convenient airport available when flying into the New York area. In fact, Teterboro is home to nearly 50 large cabin aircraft – including Gulfstreams, Challengers, Global Expresses, and Falcons that are available for private jet charter. Naturally, people come and go frequently within the New York area but it might still be surprising that approximately a quarter of a million private jet charter flights begin or end at Teterboro on an annual basis. Why? Convenience! Teterboro airport is easily and conveniently accessible to and from the city of New York by way of the George Washington Bridge. The fees at Teterboro are low in comparison with JFK and La Guardia (we think those two raised their prices to keep us private jet lovers out of there so because they are already overwhelmed by the commercial carriers – wink! wink!).
We look forward to assisting you with your next aircraft charter flight to the New York area by way of a private jet at Teterboro airport.
