A perfect place to escape and unwind, Mackinac Island is a unique Michigan destination due the fact that no cars are allowed on the island. Instead walk, bike or hail a horse–drawn carriage to explore the island’s eight-mile loop. Take in the charming Victorian village, where you can shop for curios and sample some of the island’s famous fudge.
Visit Fort Mackinac, built during the American Revolution, or just relax by the shores of Lake Huron.
How Much Does it Cost to Charter a Plane to Mackinac Island?
While the size and type of the Mackinac Island charter plane both play a factor when determining the cost of booking a flight, you can also look at the most commonly flown routes to come up with an estimated cost. Because of the small runway on Mackinac Island, it requires a small plane to get there and most of those come in from the closest airports, including some major airports. (No commercial airlines fly to the island.)
Some of these routes include flights to and from Mackinac Island from other parts of Michigan including Oakland County, Gaylord, Ypsilanti, Traverse City, and Lansing. Flights from Chicago to Mackinac Island are also common. Milwaukee to Mackinac Island is a frequent route. Even flights from Cleveland to Mackinac Island can work.
Mackinac Island Jet Charter Information
Renowned as the “Jewel of the Great Lakes,” Mackinac Island is located in between Michigan’s Upper and Lower peninsulas, and has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing getaway. Traveling to Mackinac Island is like traveling back in time. Completely surrounded by Lake Huron, the island is accessible only by ferry or turbo-prop plane. It features a narrow, eight-mile loop that is the only U.S. state highway where automobiles are not allowed. Named as one of the “10 Great Places to Get Your Feet Back on the Ground,” by USA Today, cars have been banned on the island since 1898, although some emergency vehicles are allowed. Instead, the island’s 500 or so residents and many visitors get around by walking, biking, or enjoying a leisurely horse and buggy ride. While the ferry shuts down in winter when the lake freezes, visitors can still visit in the snowy months by air and enjoy activities such as snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and fat tire biking.

Popular Things to Do in Mackinac Island
Located at the Island Ferry Dock is Mackinac Island’s Victorian village, where you can sample the island’s famous homemade fudge, shop in the many retail businesses, dine on fresh-caught freshwater salmon, steelhead or lake trout, and enjoy a cocktail at the Grand Hotel, famous for being the site of the film Somewhere in Time, starring the late Christopher Reeves. The village is also where you can embark on a carriage ride to get to the historic Fort Mackinac and Mackinac Island State Park, which covers most of the island and features trails, forest and the limestone Arch Rock formation. Built by the British in 1780 during the Revolutionary War, Fort Mackinac is a walled cluster of military buildings on a coastal bluff. In the 19th century, it served as an outpost of the United States Army and was the site of two battles for control of the Great Lakes during the War of 1812. For a cultural activity, why not visit the Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum, which has local works, including Native American art, maps and 19th-century photos. The island also plays host to a number of annual events that draw plenty of interest, including:
- Mackinac Island Lilac Festival (June)
- Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac (July)
- Fudge Festival (August)
- Island Halloween Weekend (October)
It requires careful planning in order to book Mackinac Island charter flights, as certain aircraft (mainly turbo-props) have the runway capabilities to land at the local airport. That’s where Stratos Jet Charters’ experience comes into play. Our charter agents will guide you through the flight planning process to ensure your aircraft:
- Features the amenities you require

Kyle from Stratos Jet was great to deal with... quick responses....great service....great prices....A+ experience
Stratos Jets has always been a great company to work with, very friendly staff.
With our family of 8 we we flew with speed and comfort from a blizzard ridden north to Florida. Commercial airports were still dealing with cancelled flights and major delays...we felt very fortunate.
Thank You very much. Our experience from the beginning to the end were handled with such care and consideration. Felt very comfortable and am very glad that we chose you.
Mr. <name removed for confidentiality> is extremely upset and disappointed with Stratos Jets as the plane had mechanical problems on take off which delayed the trip by 5 hours. It was his wife's birthday and the entire family had a full day of sightseeing arranged which had to be cancelled. The trip was very costly and he feels he is due back some compensation. Thank you, Etta G.
Steve made sure we had everything we needed. The travel arrangements were made easily and were efficient. 3 friends and myself had our first experience with flying private with Stratos. The food provided was delicious, the limo and transportation was perfect, and the entire experience was well worth the money. A special thank you to Pilot Dan! He was very helpful and made sure we were comfortable. Definitely a memorable experience. Stratos is my go to place when flying private from this point forward.
Thank you for making this very easy for us!! I look forward to a long relationship with Stratos Jet Charter!!
Randy was great. He helped with every aspect of the trip including time changes and catering. Both crews we had were great as well. Explaining, loading and unloading baggage, considerate and very polite. I would definitely use your service again.
Our company jet had a mechanical problem and we had a very important meeting that our passsengers had to make. Joel was able to locate and reposition an airplane for us in a matter of two hours. Our passengers were able to make their meeting and were very pleased with the aircraft/crew that was selected. Good work.
Would definitely recommend to friends! Joel went above and beyond to get us home after hurricane Irma came through Florida! Joel was in a lot of communication with us due to the high air traffic that day! Can't wait to go through Stratos jets again!
I booked a flight for my good clients and amazing service from pre departure to arrival. Friendly staff and always easy to reach. My clients left sunglasses in the plane and they are already on their way. I will use you for sure again. Thanks again.
There is no way to improve on what Garett did for us in our time of personal tragedy. He responded with excellence, compassion, thoroughness etc. He went over and above for an absolute stranger in tremendous need. I can't say enough about the job he did. God bless Garett!!!
Other than the expected 12/26 ATC "hold" , we enjoyed another perfect flight!; great crew, great equipment and a most pleasant ride!!
In every aspect of my travel experience my trip was perfect. My exchanges with Anthony we're great, the planes we're beautiful and on time
We recently flew on an International flight to the Bahamas with Stratos and the whole experience was top notch. From the flight support & customer service to the pilots and overall flight experience, our trip through Stratos was absolutely seamless. We highly recommend them!
Steve Stogner set everything up perfectly. The crew PIC:Sean Jensen and SIC: Paul Theriot were the absolute best. If you want the best experience ever, request this crew. Made everything, from arriving at the airport to departing the destination airport a wonderful experience. Moser Aviation must be an up and coming company, as they sure hire great people
Very much enjoyed the trip. Glenn was helpful in coordinating every facet of the trip and answering all questions. We greatly appreciated all of the effort.
Stratos responded to our request for a flight to leave Anguilla before the flights in and out were stopped. We called Thursday night for a flight on Friday (borders closed at midnight Friday). Response was great ! All aspects ...the agent (Glen) kept in constant contact making sure of all the details with constant updates. The pilots ...Brian and Richard were great...real pros and very friendly. Made sure our flight was comfortable and safe.
Would definitely recommend Statos Jets. Always know Kerry Hill is doing her best for us.
My only complaint with Stratos is that Initially, I did not received the lowest price quote.
After our plane developed mechanical problems and a night of discomfort and doubt, Kyle was able to find a plane and a crew at last minute to save my wife's 60th birthday trip. We arrived a little late but we arrived! You are the best Kyle.
Easy booking/cost effective/always takes care of all problems
Our VP's had a wonderful trip and great experience. Your staff is professional, welcoming, easy to work with and I look forward to working with them again. Thank you!
It’s always a pleasure working with Stratos jets! Your team always seems to be on top of everything. Thanks again for another smooth trip.
Amazing customer service and overall experience from my first contact with Kimberly. Stratos truly delivers what they promise!
Great charter flight with Stratos. They went the extra effort to ensure we had a comfortable jet with the highest safety standard.
I will definitely use Stratos Jets again and will recommend the company without hesitation. It has been several years since I have chartered a jet and this process was very easy and friendly.
I do not think there is anything else that could have been done to make our flight enjoyable. The crew, Vincent Jordan and Nicholas Gambino, were very professional, extremely courteous and if we were to charter another flight in the future we would love having them as our crew.
Always a pleasure to work with the friendly staff. The communication is concise and timely. Looking forward to future bookings!
Passenger stated that the "jet interior was shoddy and showed that the jet wasn't well taken care of." Said crew was nice. Stated no coffee available although I had specified de-caf to be provided and followed that up with company client services requesting same.
everything went very well in all areas.Thank you .
The company I represent was in a crisis situation where we needed to get halfway across the country within a matter of hours. The only available commercial flight was sold out and nothing would get us there in time. After doing some research, I found Stratos Jet Charters and called Joel at around 7 in the morning. He answered right away and were at the airport two hours later. Because it was a high stress situation in a short amount of time, I called Joel and his team countless times in a two hour window; they remained extremely professional and kind. Plus, Joel was able to get us an extremely competitive price, especially considering the short notice. I highly recommend using Stratos Jet Charters and know I will definitely use them again.
Garett is the best!
Always a wonderful experience with Stratos: great flight crew, excellent catering menu, comfortable plane.
You can not improve on perfect !!
Anthony went above and beyond to make certain that our trip to the Bahamas went off without a hitch. The team coordinated everything including ground transportation. Anthony stayed in contact each leg of the trip to make certain that we had everything we needed. I highly recommend Stratos Jet and will certainly use them again in the future.
The Stratos team was very easy to work with, made the entire process quick and easy. Pleasure to work with.
I thought Stratos was professional and easy to work with. We didn't have any problems or communication issues whatsoever. It's really nice when we don't have to deal with 10 different people to coordinate a trip.
It is always a pleasure working with the Stratos Jets team. Communication is always prompt and neatly organized. Thank you for your business. We look forward to our next trip together.Regards, Kelly Ferrese Executive Airlink, Inc,
As usual, Anthony made the entire experience wonderful. He was expeditious in finding options for our trip and maintained continuous communication. The flight and support he provided were excellent.
As a several time repeat customer, I highly recommend Stratos!
Our passengers wish to extend a sincere thanks to your staff. We however advise that you do not have permission to use Michael's name in their advertising or promotional material as to be endorsing your product. Thank you again. We look forward to working with you again in the near future.
Stratos Jets has always been Organized and on point through the booking process. Their clear communication has always made it possible to execute each trip smoothly and as planned. This consistency has made them a trusted and pleasant company for us to work with. True honest business people! Thank you!
This experienced exceeded my expectations in every way. The booking process, follow up, attention to detail, urgency and ease of communication were all excellent. The pilots were friendly, prepared, professional and prompt. The plane exactly as described and needed. I will definitely use this service again.
Yes, was a smooth process
None, excellent service
I spent 5 hours waiting for my Delta flight at the Nantucket airport Sunday afternoon. They ended up canceling my flight at 6:30pm. The Delta agent informed me that the earliest flight I could get would be sometime on Tuesday. I had a dinner Monday night and an extremely important meeting on Tuesday in Indianapolis. I could not miss either the dinner or the meeting. I texted Anthony at 6:30pm on Sunday night asking if he could help me get to Indy by 5pm the next day. He and his team went into action and we secured a flight at a decent price that night. Everything went well and I was able to make my dinner and meeting.
