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.

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 07/25/2013

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. 

5 1 5 11/03/2016

Great charter flight with Stratos. They went the extra effort to ensure we had a comfortable jet with the highest safety standard.

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 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 07/21/2019

I worked with Kimberly from Stratos Jet Charters. She was very enthusiastic and helpful. In fact because of her enthusiasm and helpfulness, I chose Stratos over a another company that gave me a slightly lower quote. She answered all my questions and did her best to meet all my requests. The flight was excellent, plane was comfortable and the pilots were very helpful and professional. There was a bit of miscommunication about the hours of customs at my home airport .. and lead to a bit of confusion about the return departure time. Ice for beverages had melted on the first leg, and not all the drinks were stocked according to what was promised. My requests were fulfilled however for the return flight. I'm a coffee drinker, coffee was well stocked, but very little cream available, kinda curdled!!. These are tiny details but better supply of online refreshments would have made the flight perfect!! Beautiful views, no delays, smooth landings, and comfortable seats and lav. Beautiful shiny, clean plane. . the CJ3. Had a great time!

5 1 5 10/30/2017

The Stratos team was very easy to work with, made the entire process quick and easy. Pleasure to work with.

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 06/20/2017

From pre-trip planning to updates via text message on your way to the airport, Stratos had us covered. We made our way from Emirates @ JFK and the FOB transfer was easy. Joel had already updated Julie (my assistant) before we landed that there were long delays out of JFK due to weather. The transfer to FBO was easy and they were expecting us. The plane was comfortable and modern and the crew could not have been kinder. Thank you guys as always for a great trip. Flight was great and the crew took us right past the storms and my one year old son slept the whole trip; a much needed reprieve for my wife and I.

5 1 5 04/13/2017

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

5 1 5 10/25/2017

Good communication

5 1 5 08/27/2019

My experience with Joel and his team a Stratos was great! We had a little wrinkle in our trip when we were diverted from our destination to another airport. It had nothing to do with our flight. There was a disabled plan on the runway. We diverted to the other airport and waited briefly for word on when it would clear. Joel and his team were all over it. They had alternate transportation lined up for us, which, we didn't end up using and ultimately got back on the plane and went to our intended destination. There were no extra charges and we only lost about an hour. Our return trip was fast and uneventful. Stratos helped us find the right plane for our trip and kept us within our budget. Thanks Joel and team!

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 10/28/2015

Stratos continues to exceed my expectations!

5 1 5 03/31/2019

Glenn,
The trips, one to Iowa & the other back to Dulles, went great. 
Everyone did great jobs & made me & my 94 year old Mom feel comfortable & taken care of. 
Glenn & Rachel were especially helpful. 
I would use your service again and will let Glenn know about my next trip. 
Thanks to you, Glenn, Rachel and the very nice/competent pilots.  Ground staff were great too. 
Thank you.

5 1 5 10/14/2014

You can not improve on perfect !!

5 1 5 10/23/2017

Would highly recommend EVERYONE ALIVE! Amazing service. Awesome team, from first call to post flight. Top flight!

5 1 5 09/21/2017

Would highly recommend anyone looking for charters to contact Stratos. Their team was second to none in handling our request from first call to post flight. The CEO was even kind enough to phone me to ensure that we had located our crew at the FBO just prior to departure. I have run multiple aircraft in flight departments for many years and can truly say that its hard to find this level of professionalism in the business.

5 1 5 08/07/2017

We have used Stratos on several occasions for Business and Personal use. The staff and service is superior. We would highly recommend Stratos to or Business Partners, Family and Friends.

5 1 5 06/27/2017

Simon Crhistian did a great job.

5 1 5 12/26/2018

Not sure I could have asked for more. Joel was responsive and delivered exactly what I needed. The two pilots were incredibly accommodating and made the trip very smooth. Thank you Joel

5 1 5 06/28/2013

You did a superb job, and the crew was first rate.  We will be back.

5 1 5 02/01/2017

I wasn’t able to do the survey that is being done by google as I don’t have a google email and don’t want to set up another email account to be spammed to death.However, if I could have done the survey, I would have given Stratos Jets very high remarks and the reason would be because of the dealings I have with Kerry Hill.  As I believe I told you when we met at the S&D last year, Kerry is the best and most considerate person I have ever dealt with from a Charter company.  Not only her flight following in which she keeps me posted on everything from beginning to end but also her attention to all the other details for the reservation such as needs of transportation for passengers, insuring that the catering is ordered and delivered.  She takes a lot of the weight and stress of my shoulders.  If ever I have a question, she is quick to get me the answers I need.In my opinion, she is a very valuable asset to your company.

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 06/22/2017

Always a pleasure to work with the Stratos Jet crew. You all have great communication with us which makes our life as an operator easier. Great job from Kerry, Sarah, and Trip Support as always.

5 1 5 10/06/2013

While this was the first time between these two cities, we may take this route frequently in the future.

5 1 5 12/31/2010

Great trip!  Keep us informed of empty legs to Aspen

5 1 5 01/08/2018

Always great working with you guys!

5 1 5 12/09/2016

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.

5 1 5 05/09/2014

It was all great. The only problem even though the rental car was right there waiting for us, it had a terrible stale cigarette odor which was most uncomfortable for our journey home. That's not your fault but I would never rent from Hertz again.

5 1 5 12/27/2016

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

5 1 5 04/13/2017

No changes are needed, we were very pleased.

5 1 5 11/22/2016

The Executive Car Service setup was a TOTAL disaster and almost ruined my trip. Chris Fink is awesome, but this man in Jersey was an absolute disgrace. Very disappointed with that firm.The crew stellar. Better than outstanding. I was blessed to have them transporting me on thus very important day trip.Chris' follow-up and communication was outstanding. He is Top-Notch.

5 1 5 05/12/2016

Flight was for an elderly person and the tail number was provided a long time before the flight and I made sure the person flying had all the info written down by someone who could hear and got everything correct. Flyer had that until day before when tail number changed. I had to find someone who could hear me well and right down the correct info for the person traveling so he got it straight in his head and for driver.

5 1 5 11/03/2016

THANK YOU STRATOS!! I have been working with Stratos Jet Charters for almost 3 years now & could not be happier with the services they provide! Working with me on many last minute changes, they are always quick & efficient, extremely professional, genuinely honest & immensely knowledgeable of all products and services they offer. They truly look out for the best interests of their clients. I trust them to always guide me in making the appropriate aircraft choices for our company. I find the ENTIRE team to be THE BEST in the charter aircraft business!!

5 1 5 12/07/2016

Ricky was awesome and everything went smoothly. I will certainly use your services again should a need arise. Thank you for everything!

5 1 5 04/14/2014

we are pleased with the pricing and servicing we are getting

5 1 5 02/05/2018

Always enjoy flying privately. Exciting from planning a trip to booking to flight(s). Predominantly use Stratos. Attentive and personal service. Joel Thomas was a great go to person. All subcontractors that they use have been top-notched. Only critique is I obtained better final pricing of the flight when I received quotes from other charter companies. Seems to be an industry thing about competitive pricing in order to obtain the best price. Yes I would recommend Stratos.

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 01/01/2018

Once again, Stratos Jets provided perfect travel service with competitive prices! We needed to move a family member with memory loss and agitation from Boston to Houston on very short notice. Joel set everything up within 24 hours- a beautiful private jet, cars and drivers at both ends of the trip, a security detail plus catering. I am completely impressed with this company and will use them whenever I need private jet service. Thank you, Joel!

5 1 5 08/06/2017

You guys are great! Keep em coming

5 1 5 12/07/2016

I think you are doing everything I could think of. I feel very comfortable and safe.

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 10/14/2014

For our far flung family, Stratos has been a consistently dependable, and cost conscious alternative to fractional and no-minimum jet programs. For us, safety is number one and cost is number two... Stratos has excelled in both areas. Their response to requests is always prompt and personal.  It is a pleasure working with Stratos.

5 1 5 10/23/2018

From the quoting and booking process to wheels up and down, things could not be better with STRATOS. Joel and his team are amazing and accommodated a last minute return schedule change. They only contract with great companies who have great equipment and outstanding crew. If you are considering Private jet travel I cannot recommend them enough!

5 1 5 01/20/2019

Yes

5 1 5 06/25/2018

Stratos offers the best overall value you can get for private air charter PERIOD. I have done tons of research and cost models and there is no better value.Joel and his team do all of the hard work for you. My family tried Wheels Up, local charter companies and App Based Deadhead charter and they were all really disappointing. All of these option look good but when you compare cost per hour, schedule flexibility and booking Stratos is always a better cost and value proposition. The equipment is always great (this trip was a Citation X with a beautiful brand new interior and every feature possible) and Stratos works around your schedule and exact needs. We have made all types of requests due to my young family and the Stratos staff and cabin crews are always so helpful and accommodating. They never have over sold us and always are sensitive to every need.Most importantly Joel only will put us with great operators. We were in and out of Aspen and safety was the number one concern and he always covers all aspects of the trip but safety first. Again, I can’t say enough about the Stratos experience and team.

5 1 5 08/09/2013

our experience was excellent

5 1 5 03/11/2013

The service was impeccable
