Updated: Mar 27


private jet las vegas

Los Angeles, California, USA, is the most popular private jet destination, with no less than 9 airports: 1 international, 1 general aviation and 7 business. The term "business airports" refers to those dedicated to business aviation and private jets. These may be private flights for businessmen and women in a hurry, or for wealthy families. But there are also medical flights (medical evacuation) and organ transports, which also depend on private aviation.


The United States, a leading destination for private aviation


A land of excess and vast spaces, the United States holds the record for the country with the most airports on its territory, with no fewer than 14,947 airports and airfields suitable for private jets.


International and business airports offer more advanced infrastructures for private aviation than others, with private terminals or FBOs (Fixed Base Operators). These terminals are able to offer a wide range of services to passengers (meeting rooms, catering, bathrooms, concierge services, child and pet care, etc.).


But if there are no airports dedicated to private jets close to your destination, airfields are perfectly qualified to receive private jets. Take-off and landing can take place there, thanks to slots reserved exclusively for business jets, so that these stages of the flight can take place in the best possible conditions and as quickly as possible.

Los Angeles: the most popular private jet destination


Nicknamed the City of Angels, Los Angeles is a throbbing metropolis that vibrates to the rhythm of diversity and innovation. Nestled on the West Coast of the United States, it is the beating heart of the entertainment industry, home to Hollywood, where dreams and realities merge on screens the world over.


But L.A. is much more than just a movie screen. With iconic beaches like Venice and Santa Monica, the city offers havens of peace where the sun kisses the sand, and the waves punctuate every day.


Los Angeles is also a melting pot of cultures, where over 140 nationalities coexist, sharing their traditions, cuisine and art, making the city a living mosaic of human diversity. From world-renowned museums such as the Getty and LACMA, to dynamic and innovative street art spaces, art is everywhere, reflecting the creative and avant-garde spirit of its inhabitants.


Vibrant, diverse and always on the move, Los Angeles is a city of seemingly endless possibilities. So it's no coincidence that Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is one of the busiest airports in the world, thanks to its easy access to the city and its surroundings.

A popular destination for tourists, but not only!


Home or work to thousands of celebrities from the entertainment and film industries, Los Angeles is one of the most popular destinations for private jets. The region boasts no fewer than nine airports accessible to private jets. Each has its own advantages, depending on the needs and constraints of the passengers who use them.
