Explore Destinations by Region

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.

Where Do Private Planes Land on Mackinac Island?

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)

Worked with Kerry Hill and as always, she delivered excellent service. First date departure had to be delayed due to a mechanical issue with the aircraft and she kept me well informed. When the revised departure date came, she worked continuously to get a hangar for the aircraft in order to help avoid costly de-icing then next morning. Can't say enough good things about Kerry and Stratos Jet!

5 1 5 06/12/2017

Everything went perfect. great job. Yes I would recommend your company to my friends.

None that I can think of

5 1 5 04/09/2024

All went well on the flight. Great pilot crew both ways.

5 1 5 06/08/2021

Easy to book with a lot of options regarding the type of aircraft needed

5 1 5 12/26/2017

As always the flight and booking process was handled with ease and professionalism. Our pilots were very personable and the aircraft was exactly what we were looking for.

5 1 5 11/29/2023

The folks at Stratos are among the most client oriented firms I work with. They are prompt, polite and always do their best to accommodate me and my guests. Keep it up!

5 1 5 04/13/2017

None. My experience with Strosjets honestly couldn't have been better

5 1 5 10/28/2020

Every aspect was professional, courteous, and reliable.

5 1 5 11/03/2016

Peace of mind!!! My family and I just completed our first charter on a private jet with Stratos. My wife and I have been on a few of our friend’s charters before and I fly regularly on my company's aircraft but this was the first charter of our own. Stratos and specifically Joel Thomas made my wife and I feel that we were in great hands throughout the planning, selection and ultimately flight process. Family loved it!!! Great experience.

5 1 5 09/30/2014

Professionalism and attention to detail come to mind when working with Stratos Jet Charters, Inc. From initial engagement to the jets to take off - they didn't miss a beat. My Employer is extremely concerned with privacy and professionalism and Stratos Jet Charters did not disappoint.

5 1 5 10/24/2023

Although I was not a traveler for this trip, I organized the flight and was the point of contact. The communication and details from our agent made this first time use of Stratos Jet Charters very pleasant. I was able to reach out directly to Steve and he was very patient and helpful with all the questions I had from booking to payment. The memorable moment was with a delay in the departure. Steve sent emails to all but also made a phone call to be sure I was aware. This was so appreciated so I could reach out immediately to the travelers. THANK YOU STEVE AND STRATOS JET CHARTERS.

5 1 5 11/22/2017

Always a pleasure. Happy Thanksgiving.

5 1 5 03/04/2016

We were thoroughly impressed with all aspects of these operations. If at all possible, a method to protect the identity of passengers might be developed (whereby TSA rules are still met). If such a method already exists, my clients would appreciate knowing the details.

5 1 5 04/27/2021

Booking was great, Kyle is wonderful a asset to your company. However the pilots were not. They were not there on time never offered an apology or explained as to why. When questioned they were extremely RUDE. I was told that the Pilots went to eat lunch so they kept myself and family waiting over an hour past wheels up time. I arrived at 12:30 for a 1:00 flight they arrived at 1:30 for a 1:00 flight with BAD attitudes

5 1 5 07/24/2017

Very professional, very knowledgeable - truly care about their clients. Stratos is always very good to work with. When one of their requests come in we know we will be treated equitably, politely, and professionally, as the Operator. The Stratos team is always friendly and thorough. The Stratos Guests are always very good to our Flight Crews, which we appreciate very much. I would highly recommend Stratos Jet Charters. Malachi Mountain Aviation.

5 1 5 02/17/2018

Two thumbs up!

5 1 5 06/28/2013

Garrett did a great job once again. He ALWAYS responds quickly and you can tell he really wants to please. He tried very hard to get us overflight permission and this time he was not able to but I knew that he tried hard. We had the same flight crew as we had last time and we really like them. They are very professional and very friendly.

5 1 5 12/27/2016

As a several time repeat customer, I highly recommend Stratos!

5 1 5 08/24/2018

Everything great but itineraries always change last minute (tail #, terminal) which has caused problems.

5 1 5 01/01/2018

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.

5 1 5 10/06/2017

I was frantically looking last minute for a private jet to transport myself and a family member with early onset memory loss from Minneapolis, MN to Keene, NH. I found Stratos Jet Charters online and they caught my eye. From the first phone call to Eric Bold, the broker, to the landing in Keene, NH, I was completely amazed at how easy it was to book the flight and get the details in order. Eric was super sharp and made the entire booking simple and fast in a very professional way. He was also totally available by phone immediately when I needed to talk with him. Sarah, also, helped us with catering and the passenger manifesto and she was just as competent. The pilots, Jeff and Deanna, made us feel very secure and confident about the flight and our comfort. I feel so fortunate to have found this company and will reach out to them for all of my future private jet needs. Thank you, each of you, and thank you, Stratos!!

5 1 5 04/13/2017

I would like to be able to track aircraft on internet.

5 1 5 05/27/2014

lower cost flights :)

5 1 5 03/01/2019

The flight was excellent, 24 hours prior Sarah helped us with a departure window and the crew and FBO were really accommodating as we were running behind. Really nice Hawker 900XP nice pilots and smooth flight. Cant give enough praise to the Stratos process and ease.

5 1 5 08/03/2022

Daniel was very responsive late into the night and early morning and was able to arrange our flight in hours. Time from first contact to wheels up was less than 12 hours. The FBO's and crew provides were very accommodating and helpful. 5 stars!

5 1 5 06/22/2020

Nice, easy and prompt communication. Pleasure working with your team

5 1 5 06/11/2018

KERRY HILL WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO HELP ME WITH THIS TRIP FOR MR. SOLLBERGER. SHE IS PATIENT AND KNOWLEDGABLE AND WAS MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP SEE THAT MR <REDACTED> ARRIVED SAFELY ON THE GROUND AND AT HIS HOTEL . I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT KERRY'S EXCELLENCE. THE FLIGHT AND CREW WERE EXCELLENT AS WELL.

5 1 5 06/19/2017

Since day one, Joel and his team have been providing us with great customer service and always meet or exceed our needs. They are impeccable in their constant communication, which includes everything from quotes to flight status, and all in between. They are very accommodating to all requests, even the last minute ones. Sarah with trip support has carefully and flawlessly helped with all requested travel arrangements, from car rental to car service. It is hard to find a company these days that is genuine and understands the importance of truly great customer service, and this company and all members of the team, have this! It is very refreshing. I would recommend this company to anyone who has ever thought about trying Jet Charters or has done so for years, it will be a change for the best!

5 1 5 12/15/2020

Anthony was amazing! He was compassionate, detailed, attentive, proactive and so many other things that I could not begin to put into words for our complicated travel situation. The flight crew was amazing for the journey and ground crew and the ops crew saved my family. I can never put into words how much I appreciate Anthony and the Stratos Team. We will never think of using another charter company for any of our needs! Thank you so much!

5 1 5 05/05/2018

Joel was extraordinary in helping me with options when a connecting flight was cancelled and I had to scramble to get to my destination on time. He was available late into the evening to help me and ultimately I made my appointment.

5 1 5 03/27/2018

As always, Joel and his team made this a seamless trip. We enjoyed every moment from booking to take off and landing and everything in between. Thank you!

5 1 5 05/01/2020

Joel and his staff made a family loss so much easier to deal with. They are like family and they have my business whenever I need it and they’re available.

5 1 5 04/13/2017

No changes are needed, we were very pleased.

5 1 5 12/21/2021

Zach and Leslie were very responsive and easy to work with.

5 1 5 03/23/2023

This was our first time using private air travel. Anthony made the process as smooth as can be, sailing through a few hiccups with ease. He was literally *always* available for questions or concerns. I cannot imagine going through the procedures without someone as focused and knowledgeable as Anthony. He is a shining example of the lost art of good customer service. Looking forward to our next flight with Anthony and Stratos Jets.

5 1 5 05/15/2023

great from start to finish!

5 1 5 09/22/2021

Especially impressed that you were able to find us a rental car when there were none available in the entire area. You guys are wizards. The flight was comfortable and the pilots competent and professional. Thank you for helping us make this trip happen.

5 1 5 11/03/2020

Glenn and his team at Stratos were amazing. Unfortunately, the operator provided last minute communication of a delay that caused problems on the arriving end of the flight. The operator was aware of the delay the night before and failed to inform Glenn (and in turn, me). The drive from the San Jose, CR airport to my final destination was incredibly dangerous due to my having to drive at night. The stress of travel was significant to begin with. The poor communication and the delay into the final destination caused another whole level of stress which is understood when you travel commercially, but not when you spend $17K on a private jet charter.

5 1 5 03/27/2013

All good. I would like info on best, fastest way to charter jet for my next trip to India. I'm not wealthy, & run a small business. My work is only to benefit impoverished people internationally. My website is www.lesindiennes.com. I must travel regularly to India yearly for my business. I wonder if your company alo cares about these people? Is it possible to use your services for this business travel? Can you advise me to a NY company that is more suitable to my needs. I answered your questionnaire. I look forward to your advice, & to learn how much your co. Is concerned with the plight of these people's? Best Mary

5 1 5 01/01/2022

Our original plane had maintenance issues and we were upgraded to the only plane available. It was such a beautiful ride, we upgraded for our return trip. Everyone at Stratos is professional, customer oriented and a pleasure to deal with. I will continue to use their service.

5 1 5 03/02/2017

Everything was first class even though we not only left one of our bags on the plane but lost a wallet on the return trip (not on the plane), Matt Machokas was very helpful in assisting us in helping to resolve our problems. All pilots were great. Matt also arranged a flight for us because of a date issue I made with the return flight. He assisted in finding another plane to be sent so that we did not have to wait another day.

5 1 5 12/21/2021

The level of service provided by Stratos is very high. Glenn and team continue to listen and understand our needs and organize excellent service. The latest provider was the best so far. Thank you team.

5 1 5 01/27/2019

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!

5 1 5 06/07/2016

Nothing, Heather is amazing as always and the reason I will continue to fly with you.

5 1 5 04/20/2023

I would recommend Stratosjets to anyone. This was not an easy booking for a number of reasons, but Kerry Hill and the Support staff provided THE best customer service I have ever experienced for ANY service or purchase. If there were more than 5 stars as an option, I would give them more. Bravo!

5 1 5 06/14/2017

Great Trip Support Team We love working with Stratos Jets! They are fast to respond, reasonable to work with, and their brokers and trip support team are very detail oriented which leaves little room for error. I would highly recommend them!

5 1 5 09/18/2022

Flight was very nice. And the pilot, Scott Gustafson, was very professional and friendly. He did a great job with our luggage and talking about the plane and our flight. Great pilot.

5 1 5 12/22/2020

We had a great flight and would definitely recommend this to a friend. Thanks to Anthony for his attentive, personal service. Rgds, Michael
