Private Jet Charter from Washington DC to Los Angeles
Making plans to swap the Executive City for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood? If the hills of the west coast are beckoning, it may be time to book a private jet charter from Washington DC to Los Angeles. When you soar into the entertainment capital of the world, you’ll have access to more than 100 museums, the infamous Walk of Fame collection of stars, beautiful beaches, the Santa Monica pier, high-calibre sporting events, and so much more.
How much does it cost to book a private jet charter from Washington DC to Los Angeles?
Since the journey crosses the entire country, there are limited aircraft options to pick from. For this trip, you’ll need to hire a midsize jet or larger. The most cost-effective way to get there privately would be by mid-size jet, like the Hawker 800A. A ride in this jet or similar will set you back roughly $33,800. For a super-mid, you’re looking at a cost of nearly $39,000 and for a heavy jet, like the Global Express, you’ll be quoted in the neighborhood of $58,500. However, if you’re hoping for additional concierge services, these estimates will be slightly higher. If these services interest you, we’ll connect you with our Trip Support department. Their sole responsibility is to provide support on additional services, like inflight catering, ground transportation, security detail, and arranging reservations.

How long does a private flight between Washington DC and Los Angeles take?
The distance between Washington DC and Los Angeles is approximately 2,300 miles by air and takes just shy of six hours of flight time. It’s important to note that only super-mid or heavy jets can cross that distance without stopping for fuel. A mid-size jet, on the other hand, will have to make a fuel stop, which will increase your travel time. If you have a tight schedule awaiting you in Los Angeles, we recommend booking a larger aircraft, like the Challenger 300. This aircraft boasts true coast-to-coast performance that’s perfect for blending cost-effectiveness with superior range capabilities. With an aircraft like this, you can skip the refueling stop, putting you in LA less than six hours from your departure in Washington DC.
|Aircraft Type||Distance in ML||Distance in KM||Duration|
|Medium Jet||2304||3707||5.20 hr|
|Heavy Jet||2304||3707||5.00 hr|

Empty leg flights from Washington DC to Los Angeles
Flying nearly coast to coast is an expensive journey. However, there is a way to save on the cost of chartering a jet from Washington DC to Los Angeles: book an empty leg flight. Also known as deadheads, empty leg flights offer all the amenities that come with private aviation at a fraction of the cost. When a carrier is booked for a one-way mission, they’re left with the option of repositioning empty and footing the bill themselves or offering a discounted charter flight to help recoup some of the repositioning costs. When this happens, we’re able to provide clients with deeply discounted flights. There’s just one catch: the jet type/size and departure dates will already be determined. However, these slight inconveniences can be worth the savings, if it aligns with your schedule.
