How much does a private jet from Vancouver to San Francisco cost?

The cost to charter a Vancouver to San Francisco private plane depends on your travel preferences. A private charter can cost as little as $8,500 up to $26,200 depending on the type of aircraft you choose. The departure airport, availability of preferred aircraft, and time of year travelling can all affect the cost of charter as well. One of the most cost effective ways to travel between these two cities is by turboprop or very light jet. For this trip, we recommend the Citation Mustang, which costs around $9,000. For a more comfortable experience, a super-mid or heavy jet is best. We recommend the Gulfstream G200, which will set you back around $17,000.

How long does a private flight between Vancouver and San Francisco take?

The average flight time between Vancouver and San Francisco is roughly 2 hours and 30 minutes; however, that timeline can change depending on the capabilities of your charter. Though the distance between the two is only 800 miles, the speed at which the aircraft flies makes all the difference. For example, a very light jet that travels at a speed of 390 mph may make the trip in 2 hours and 30 minutes, while a larger aircraft that can reach up to 590 mph can complete the journey in just 2 hours and 10 minutes. If your travel time is limited, book a private jet charter and skip the long line-ups and wait times that come with flying commercially. Once your flight it booked, you’re free to show up just a few minutes before the scheduled departure time. And once you arrive in San Francisco, you can disembark your plane and walk straight across the tarmac into a waiting chauffeured car.

    Empty leg flights from Vancouver to San Francisco

    On average, a Vancouver to San Francisco empty leg flight can go for 25 to 75 per cent less than the normal price. This translates to big savings for jet charter passengers. However, booking an empty leg flight requires some flexibility on the passengers’ behalf. In order to take advantage of these deals, travellers won’t be able to select the departure airport, choose which jet to charter, or determine the departure or arrival time.
