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.
How much does it cost to book a flight on a private jet?
Below is a table of hourly rates for private jets and turboprop aircraft.
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:
|One-way Routing||Aircraft Type||Seats||Flight Time||Estimated Price|
|Los Angeles – Las Vegas – Los Angeles||Phenom 100||4||0:56||$5,300|
|New York – Florida – New York||Hawker 800XP||8||2:42||$16,300|
|New York – Los Angeles – New York||Citation X||8||5:14||$32,350|

In-depth Market Analysis
Your Stratos agent will 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 an 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. 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 flights 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.
