All of the above reasons are valid reasons as to why celebrities utilise a private jet charter service. You will often find that the cost for the charter (unless they are travelling for their own reasons not relevant to business) does not cost them money directly because the company that requires them to fly where ever they are going will foot the bill. Many business people also have this luxury – some businesses operate their own jet that they charter to their employees at will. Because the costs of flying the jet are tax deductible it may seem like a better option than constantly purchasing plane tickets for employees. It also allows them to fly their employees (the same applies to celebrities) to where they need to go without having to wait around a terminal.

Utilising a private jet charter service is also a means of travelling in style. Many commercial private jet charter services have quite luxurious planes. These planes come with their own flight attendants and are often serviced by world class chefs. Many also have a wet bar on board. For the discerning celebrity this may be the only way to travel. It also means that they retain their privacy when travelling – away from the prying eyes of the public and paparazzi. Who can blame them for wanting to utilise a private jet chartering service in this regard? If I were a celebrity and needed to get someone I would certainly opt to travel in this manner. However, it is not only celebrities that can utilise such a service.
Anyone can use a private jet charter service – although the cost may be a bit too much for everyone, it is still a valid form of travel regardless. Many professional pilots have opted to start their own charter service because it allows them to work flexible hours (as long as the person using the service is not too demanding) and affords them the ability to work for themselves. As a business opportunity, it is a great one for those qualified to do the job. Of course you sometimes see celebrities or those who have the ability to fly using a regular commercial airline, but I am sure most of them would prefer to use a private jet charter service.
It is good for travelling business people who can’t rely on a schedule set by a commercial air travel company. It is also a comfort thing. You don’t have to share your space with a bunch of people or put up with nagging (or worse – crying) children.
