Traveling across Europe on a private plane is easy, thanks to a large number of European cities with incredibly modern and extensive airports catering to the private aviation sector.

Europe’s Best Cities for Private Aviation…

Istanbul, Turkey — Istanbul Ataturk Airport

Istanbul is a melting pot of the old and new worlds. Here, light glints off the Bosphorus, the souks offer everything from spices to shoes, Christianity and Islam rub companionable shoulders, architecture, and interiors are bright and enticing, and delicious smells waft through the air at all times of the day and night.

Flying into Istanbul Ataturk Airport on your private jet charter means you’ll be landing in the heart of a city bursting with life and overflowing with things to see and do, taste and touch.

You can arrange for a car service to collect you directly from the terminal or choose to take one of the airport shuttle services that run to and from Ataturk regularly.

If you’re visiting Istanbul, we advise you to do it either early in the spring or autumn, before the crowds of tourists arrive or after they leave.

This also means your stay will be a little more temperate and cool. Take your time in this ancient city and let it unfold its wonders before you.

There’s the Hagia Sophia — one of the world’s most well-known places of worship; the Grand Bazaar — an age-old marketplace full of curiosities; the Basilica Cistern — an ancient and incredibly maintained reservoir featuring incredible carvings, and so much more.

Paris, France — Charles de Gaulle Airport

It’s no surprise that the City of Lights makes our list. Paris is one of the European cities with the most international traffic every year, and it’s a mecca for those with a taste for the finer things in life.

Charles de Gaulle is the premier airport in the city and is more than equipped to handle charter flights of all shapes and sizes, so you’ll be well taken care of when you land.

We advise that you book a private car service to collect you from the airport because there’s nothing better than seeing Paris from the back seat of a luxury vehicle.

Paris holds many delights. There are those of the culinary sort — the patisseries, chocolateries, and many Michelin-star restaurants.

There are endless shopping opportunities from some of the world’s premier brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Balmain.


And, of course, there are the sights of the city itself: The Arc de Triomphe, the Ponts des Arts bridge, and the Eiffel Tower in all its shining glory.

Explore Paris and experience everything this ancient city has to offer.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands — Schiphol Airport

A dose of culture and incredible scenery awaits you when you land in Amsterdam.

Schiphol Airport is known as a gateway to Europe because airlines fly out to 327 destinations in total.

As your private flight circles the city waiting to land, you’ll see the canals the city is so well known for and the bright green fields surrounding it.

In Amsterdam, you can experience a meeting of worlds: the old world is still incredibly present in the architecture and the art that the city is famous for, and the new is present in the sheer variety of travelers that arrive in Amsterdam daily, bringing their own cultures with them.

Experience the works of many of the great masters, from Van Gogh to Rembrandt and Vermeer, and more modern art at any of the city’s extensive galleries.

Experience the Nine Streets — a quirky micro-neighborhood in the heart of the city full of restaurants, boutiques, and gorgeous scenery.

Visit the Albert Cuyp market and get a taste of artisanal cheeses, chocolates, and Dutch street food at its best.

Hop onto one of the many Canal tour boats that prowl through the city’s waterways and see the whole city from the water.

Amsterdam is eclectic, exciting, and visually stunning- take your time to explore it properly.


Traveling to any of these three cities ensures that you’ll have a seamless private jet experience.

Your luxury trip will begin when you board your flight and only end once you have disembarked from your return flight- there will be no gaps in the luxury experience.

Visit Istanbul, Paris, or Amsterdam by charter flight, and you’ll have the trip of a lifetime using private aviation.
