How Much Does a Private Jet Charter Cost?

Stratos gives you two convenient methods to find pricing for private aviation

For many, private travel is a pragmatic necessity. However, the choice often boils down to one simple question: How much is a private jet charter? Stratos offers two great purchase options to assist clients in procuring the air travel solutions that fit their needs and budget: On-Demand Pricing and Fixed-Rate Pricing.

On Demand Pricing

In-depth Market Analysis

On any given day, rates for on-demand charter flights fluctuate on a trip-by-trip basis as pricing is determined by three predominate considerations:

  • The type of aircraft being chartered
  • Availability of the preferred aircraft
  • Aircraft location relative to your intended departure location and post-flight positioning requirements

As you can see, with on-demand pricing, it can be difficult to find an exact answer to that critical question: ‘how much is a private jet rental?’ However, we’ve put together standard pricing for some common routes and aircraft to give you an approximation of what to expect for private jet travel. Please note that the prices provided by our Instant Quote Calculator are estimates only. To receive a formal quote, we invite you to talk to one of our expert air charter associates directly by calling 888-593-9066

We present clients with a range of pricing options for a given aircraft category. The lower end prices would be indicative of more moderately priced aircraft, while the higher end prices reflect aircraft featuring enhanced performance capabilities and/or a broader range of inflight amenities. Our intention is to provide clients with clarity when choosing aircraft within their preferred aircraft class so that they can make informed buying decisions.

In order to provide clients with the most accurate estimates possible, our Stratos agents utilize the most advanced cost calculator available on the market. We look at price-determining factors such as:

  • Historical rates
  • Standard availability
  • Current fuel costs
  • Wind direction, which varies by trip

Book with confidence knowing your agent will diligently analyze all available aircraft in the charter market and identify the best-positioned aircraft, giving you the flexibility to choose your preferred aircraft at the best available price. We’ll also review any other available cost-saving options with you, such as taking advantage of one-way charter flights (also known as a deadhead flight or empty leg flight) to accommodate your travel itinerary.

For example, we may find that the most cost-effective approach is to utilize multiple aircraft for your round-trip itinerary. Our market search may also uncover an aircraft similar to your choice that needs to be moved along your proposed travel route. If so, chartering it could effectively eliminate or reduce fees such as:

  • Aircraft Repositioning
  • Daily Minimum Usage
  • Overnight Fees

All-in Private Jet Prices

Firm quotes provided by Stratos Jet Charters are based on a specific aircraft’s availability and are considered “all-in” prices, which include all taxes and any other anticipated fees. Unless, of course, you change your requested itinerary during your trip. We bill all expected flight-related costs upfront. That way, when you ask us ‘How much is a private jet flight?’ there’ll be no surprises waiting for you when your trip is over.

There are some circumstances, however, in which additional charges may arise that are out of Stratos’ control. During winter, for example, your aircraft may require de-icing prior to departure. Since this is an unforeseen expense, you would bear the additional cost and would be billed after your trip.

For flight itineraries requiring multiple days on the ground before returning to your trip’s point of origin, overnight fees and daily minimums may be required. When these fees become cost prohibitive, or the selected aircraft has been scheduled for other charter service during the dates of your travel, the aircraft may return to base.

Please let us know if you have an upcoming trip, and we’ll be happy to provide you with firm pricing and any available cost-saving options.

None, excellent service

It was great working with Joel he was involved from beginning to end in every aspect of the trip.  We look forward to many trips together. Thank you.

5 1 5 07/03/2019

Always great teamwork

5 1 5 02/02/2017

Kerry absolutely gets an A+ in customer service. Very well run jet service company.

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 01/24/2018

As the assistant who actually booked the trip and made the plans for my employer and her family, I must say that the experience was a new one for me. That said, the unfamiliar process was made much simpler thanks to the knowledge, expertise and patience of my rep, Christina Nesbit. She was extremely informative and helped thru each step of the process, reassuring me that the passengers were getting the most appropriate plane for their needs.I will double check to be sure there isn't any additional feedback I am missing, but to date I was told that the flight was a pleasurable one and they were appreciative and impressed that the President came to greet them pre flight as well.Thank you, Shari

5 1 5 02/07/2018

Smooth across the board as always. Thanks for the trip.

5 1 5 11/29/2018

I made all of the arrangements for the charter flight for my boss and his family. I worked with Joel Thomas personally, who took the time with me to show the jet options available, all the while considering my boss's medical issues and care requirements. He emailed a jet comparison guide with photographs to view side-by-side so that I could make a wise and informed decision, and walked me through them over the phone. He was determined to provide the best possible experience for everyone. Joel made it all so easy, and it was clear after conversations with him that he has a heart for people and genuinely cares about their needs. I ordered in-flight catering, over the phone, which could not have been any easier. The food was plentiful and exceptional! My boss called me the next day asking that I inquire as to who the local caterer was that supplied the food, as he wants to make sure that we use them in the future. They staged all of the food on beautiful white platters that looked classy and elegant, as though it was all prepared for red carpet guests. And every selection was freshly prepared that day and over the top in flavor! The pilot was very nice and personable and clearly cared about the comfort and safety of his passengers. The plane was extremely comfortable and very luxurious. The seating was perfect for the six of them and their cat, Molly! I received a call the next day from my boss's grown daughter, and all she did was rave about how it was first class all the way! She said I always do such a great job. LOL! It was Joel and the Stratos team that did all the work! My part was easy! Ohhh, and Joel also went out of his way to arrange for ground transportation upon their flight's arrival. I can say from personal experience over the years, that flying does not get any better than going first class with Joel Thomas and his team at Stratos Jet Charters. I want to thank them for making me look like the best assistant ever!!

5 1 5 01/19/2018

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 02/10/2019

As always great coordination. I was not on the flight but rather my family and Stratos arranged everything. Even with a winter storm, my wife being delayed, De-icing and two sick kids on-board, Stratos updated me while I was over seas and I knew everything was handled without any issues. The pilots we super kind and accommodating and it made for a wonderful trip. All ground transport, catering and logistics went flawlessly and the Stratos team even arranged my ground transport meeting them from a commercial flight. I cant say enough about the team and their personal pride and care for my family. Thank you again!

5 1 5 02/25/2012

Everything was perfect - nothing to improve. Many thanks to Richard Gomulka for his assistance - he was great!

5 1 5 01/27/2019

We were so very pleased with the planning, follow up and service. Do not waste your time or money looking anywhere else.

5 1 5 09/10/2012

First time flying on a private plane. Knowing the exact layout inside & manner of boarding. Originally inquired about a Lear jet 35 & then confirmed a citation ll. Not a problem for me & my husband but for the 102 year old traveling with us was difficult to board as initial step into plane was 18 inches & the crew had to find a step stool. Steps were little and required several people to board & inboard her. The crew of Lance & Meagan were exemplary & would fly with them anytime

5 1 5 07/03/2019

As always, Kerry did a great job for us. Very happy with aircraft interior, performance and crew.

5 1 5 12/19/2018

From start to finish Glenn was great. He accommodated our various changes and handled everything professionally. The flight was perfect. Pilot and co-pilot were great.

5 1 5 11/21/2018

HI Heather, I just wanted to let you know that the trip was fabulous. Everyone was especially excited about the trip to and from Florida on the jet. The pilots were very friendly and professional. We will definitely be using your service again. The G200 was the perfect aircraft for us also. Thank you again for your help in arranging such perfect transportation.

5 1 5 08/06/2017

You guys are great! Keep em coming

5 1 5 10/30/2017

Joel and Stratos are amazing! He made sure our flight was tailored perfectly and was very responsive and always available for contact. They catered specifically to our needs with late notice. The pilots were fantastic and patient, especially considering we had three animals and arrived 10 minutes before take-off. They provided the smoothest flight in the Hawker we’ve ever taken. Stratos offered transportation to and from; the boarding process was welcoming and convenient. We will only fly privately with Stratos Jets through Joel and his team. Thank you guys for everything!

5 1 5 06/23/2017

We have used Stratos for the past two years to handle our travel plans and enjoy the ease and attention to detail our trips have been handled with.

5 1 5 01/20/2014

I do not know what more anyone could have done. The service was nothing short of amazing from everyone involved. The trip was for my ailing mother to attend my brothers wedding. If it had not been for all of you this would not have been possible, and for that we are truly greatful!

5 1 5 07/03/2019

We truly value our relationship with Stratos Jets and appreciate their business. They are organized and communicate well making sure all of the trips we do together happen seamlessly. We look forward to a long lasting relationship, thank you again for selecting our team and aircraft for your clients!

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 08/24/2018

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

5 1 5 06/29/2018

As always, your staff is a pleasure to work with, and are very good with their communication, etc. I (of course) wish we didn't have the snafu with your client cutting the trip short, only to change his mind - costing us an additional 3 hours of flight time (approx. $10,000) - since we cancelled a trip with another operator to accommodate his request to leave early. I think there should have been a consideration for a 2 hour cancellation fee or something there. We understand that this wasn't Stratos Jets' doing - but I believe your client should have been penalized in some way as he was informed we had another trip and he told us to cancel it to accommodate him. This was very disappointing (and financially detrimental) for us, especially as we had lowered the cost of the trip (in addition to removing all minimums) prior to booking. The only way it made sense for us to do that was to fly while sitting transient.

5 1 5 08/14/2017

As always, the folks at Stratos Jet Charters did an outstanding job responding to a short-notice requirement for supplemental lift for our flight department.Their staff is always focused on the customer needs and preferences.Through their proven performance, they have become my "go-to" solution when the need arises.

5 1 5 01/12/2014

MY agent did a great job. Due to the immediate nature of the flight, we didn't compare to others but he was very quick to respond.

5 1 5 02/12/2014

This was a fantastic trip and our family will remember the rest of their life. Wife says it is the only way to travel via air. Everything was handled perfect

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 07/25/2017

Its always a pleasure working with Stratos Jets. I work with Joel and Kerry a majority of the time and my experiences have been great. The communication is clear and we work through every scenario available to provide the right aircraft for each mission. I look forward to continued growth of our relationship together.

5 1 5 01/06/2018

As the operator, this client showed great brokerskills. Precise emails and everything was provided shortly after requested. Would love to work with StratosJets again soon.

5 1 5 08/13/2012

Pilot did a terrible job of synchronizing the engines. It was bad enough at one point that the two guest passengers were worried we would need an emergency landing. I have flown on Hawkers for 15 years now and never had that experience. Crew was very nice, but the pilot needs some instruction. It was very disconcerting.

5 1 5 07/24/2017

The Stratos Jet Charter team provides a seamless & top notch experience from beginning to end. They are a forward thinking company that puts the customer first and never disappoints with any trip or itinerary. I recently booked a short flight from Orlando to Boca Raton on a Falcon 2000EX and could not have been happier with the service and attention to detail that was provided for my wife, myself and the rest of our companions. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

5 1 5 09/19/2013

None, Ricky Gomulka takes care of everything, and I honestly like dealing only with him everytime I call. Very hard working and goes over and beyond for me.

5 1 5 01/17/2013

I can't think of anything that wasn't handled perfectly. We'd like to extend a special thanks to the crew who were extremely helpful in loading and unloading the equipment.

5 1 5 08/23/2013

Kevin is great to work with. I'll call him again. the aircraft crew were great.Thank you for making this trip so easy for us.

5 1 5 05/03/2018

Stratos arranged a private jet to Toronto for me last minute. Everything went well and the Challenger 300 was very nice. Thank you

5 1 5 12/11/2016

Passenger stated that the jet's 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.

5 1 5 02/17/2014

Everything was perfect !Thanks to Ricky !

5 1 5 06/15/2017

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.

5 1 5 12/06/2012

I had an exceptional time with outstanding service and crew!

5 1 5 11/25/2018

The whole team is always professional and great to work with. You can tell there's a lot of integrity and experience in the company. Thank you folks!!

5 1 5 09/13/2017

Recently booked a jet for 11 people from my organization to continue operations during hurricane Irma. As business owners know, operations do not cease during a disaster and customers must continue to be served. Stratos Jet Charters booked the aircraft we needed within an hour of reaching out. Our team was able to continue business operations in NYC seamlessly. Much appreciation to Joel and his team for fast action!

5 1 5 03/15/2018

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.

5 1 5 03/01/2018

Wonderful! Plan to do it again. My wife and I had no idea that such a level of GREAT service was available.

5 1 5 02/13/2017

Stratos takes the complicated process of private air charter and makes it simple. They have helped me through the process and Joel even turned down my offer for purchasing a Pre-paid Jet card because he advised that it would not be a good fit for my home airport and family lifestyle. I shortly became a client after that because that experience was indicative of the company's overall honesty and great ethos.We have Chartered with Joel on multiple occasions and always get the the 3Gs of private air travel - Great Safety, Great Plane & Great Price.Stratos is a great company and they put your safety 1st and make the process easy. You can text or call them at anytime and their response time is amazing. You truly feel special. Flying on chartered planes is something we really value and keep very personal and discrete. Joel assists us in keeping the experience special and within our schedule and budget.I recommend Stratos to friends who have jet cards, fractional ownership and 1st timers alike. If you are considering charter, the 1st call to make is to Stratos. They never pressure you and value the relationship. I can not say enough about this team - A great experience!

5 1 5 03/26/2018

Yes. Good. Good. Yes

5 1 5 03/31/2019

As always great coordination. I was not on the flight but rather my family and Stratos arranged everything.
