Can You Beat Jet Lag by Hiring a Private Jet?

Jet lag, also known as time zone change syndrome or desynchronosis, occurs when people travel rapidly across time zones or when their sleep is disrupted. But flying via private jet may help you fight jet lag.

Whilst jet lag is temporary it can interfere with your day in many ways:

  • Tiredness
  • Drowsiness
  • Lethargy
  • Anxiety
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea

Whilst these symptoms are not dangerous, it can affect your overall wellbeing and can have a devastating impact on your holiday or business trip.

There can be several factors that can cause jet leg, lets look at what you can do to avoid them and how a private jet may help:


By adjusting your sleeping pattern quickly, you can avoid jet lag. Experienced flyers may prepare for a trip several days before by gradually altering their sleep patterns; going to sleep an hour earlier or later each day.

Of course, this is not a solution for everyone with busy schedules so perhaps adjust your watch before you land which should help you change your mindset as you prepare to adjust to the new time zone.

By travelling on a private jet, overall, you should have a much more relaxed experience and you will often find reclining chairs and beds to help you get to sleep much easier. With larger size aircraft you may also find you have your own bedroom suite where you can completely unwind.


We all have an internal body clock and some external factors can confuse the body clock such as light.

If we cross into another time zone, it may be light when our bodies were not expecting it. Light is one of the key elements we use to decide if it is day or night.

You may find that people find wearing sunglasses helpful to regulate the amount of light that comes into contact with their eyes.

State of the art private jets will often feature high-tech lighting which helps you combat jet lag something you will rarely find on commercial flights. On commercial flights you can often be expected to be woken up by internal lights.


Ideally you want to fly in an aircraft that has low cabin pressure as this applies less pressure to your heart and lungs. The main symptom of jet leg is fatigue, a comfortable temperature, regular hydration, and optimal cabin pressure can help.

Generally speaking, private jets have lower cabin pressure compared to commercial airlines and offer more control over temperature and humidity increasing the chance of a much more relaxing flight for you.
