Private Travel Tips and Exclusive Island Partnerships
Located just off the coast of Cape Cod sits the idyllic islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. These charming destinations offer a serene summer escape for many NetJets Owners. From the moment our Owners book a flight to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard, we offer personalized, private travel tips and recommendations to assure their travel experience is exceptional.

Below are some of our recommendations for flying privately to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

Private Flights to Nantucket & Martha’s Vineyard

While the entire NetJets fleet can fly in to and out of the Martha’s Vineyard Airport (KMVY) and the Nantucket Airport (KACK), crosswinds can present unique challenges. Nantucket Memorial Airport is less impacted by crosswinds because it has two runways, but Martha’s Vineyard Airport only has one runway, so it’s more restrictive on windy days. In a crosswind-restrictive scenario, NetJets Owners have the benefit of accessing the largest fleet in private aviation to help assure there are no unforeseen impacts to their travel plans. Our Flight Operations Team recommends that our Owners fly the Cessna Citation Latitude in a crosswind scenario, as it has the best crosswind performance in our fleet. Also, NetJets Owners have access to our in-house meteorologists who can provide insight and adjust flight timelines to work around the weather.

Private Jet Travel Tips

Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard are popular destinations for our Owners in the summer months (June—August) when coastal islands often experience morning fog. Early morning flights are often thwarted by this issue, so we typically discourage early morning flights to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. If, however, an early departure from the islands is necessary, we can position an aircraft the evening before to assure on-time performance. 

Ground transportation can be limited on these island destinations, especially during busy holiday weekends. Our Owner Services Team always books Owner reservations as far in advance as possible to assure availability. It’s also important to note that the Martha’s Vineyard Airport will be starting a yearlong major construction project in the fall of 2018, so flights around that time will likely be impacted.
