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.

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 02/02/2017

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

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 11/22/2017

Always a pleasure. Happy Thanksgiving.

5 1 5 05/23/2014

Nothing. Meagan Brower was outstanding! She was very informative and kept me updated on every aspect of the trip

5 1 5 12/07/2016

The Stratos team has always been highly professional, accommodating and easy to work with to plan and execute our trips. Additionally, their commitment to safety and utilizing experienced crew members puts us at ease to know every trip we book is not only enjoyable but very safe. Couldn't recommend them more!

5 1 5 09/02/2012

Everyone involved was courteous and helpful in getting a last minute emergency trip arranged. However, the premise for using your services was to be GUARANTEED ARRIVAL by a SPECIFIC TIME. Neither the departure nor arrival was anywhere close to what was promised. Hence, our reasons for hiring Stratos to take us became unnecessary and a wasted expense

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 03/26/2018

Yes. Good. Good. Yes

5 1 5 06/07/2016

Nothing, Heather is amazing as always and the reason I will continue to fly with you.

5 1 5 01/07/2014

Pricing to be competitive with Marquis etc.

5 1 5 03/31/2019

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 08/06/2017

You guys are great! Keep em coming

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 05/10/2013

Ricky was wonderful to work with and answered all our many questions!

5 1 5 12/24/2016

You did great. Garett was great, ground transportation was clean, easy and on-time and seamless. It was a good trip and I have already asked for another quote. Don't know if I will use it depending upon cost as this next one is purely personal. But I would like to.

5 1 5 02/07/2018

This was a last minute medical request. Joel, who I have worked with in the past took time away from his vacation to assist me with a fight that met my needs exactly. He’s friendly and professional and a credit to any organization!

5 1 5 07/19/2017

The Stratos Jet Charters team provides a seamless & excellent experience from beginning to end. They are a forward thinking company that puts the customer first and never disappoints with any trip or itinerary. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

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 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 06/11/2018

KERRY HILL WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO HELP ME WITH THIS TRIP FOR MR. SOLLBERGER. SHE IS PATIENT AND KNOWLEDGABLE AND WAS MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP SEE THAT MR <REDACTED> ARRIVED SAFELY ON THE GROUND AND AT HIS HOTEL . I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT KERRY'S EXCELLENCE. THE FLIGHT AND CREW WERE EXCELLENT AS WELL.

5 1 5 10/05/2017

Our company jet had a mechanical problem and we had a very important meeting that our passsengers had to make. Joel was able to locate and reposition an airplane for us in a matter of two hours. Our passengers were able to make their meeting and were very pleased with the aircraft/crew that was selected. Good work.

5 1 5 01/17/2018

Flight great.. flown Stratos about 10 years... better than what I hear + have experienced thru friends. Professional & responsive. Book it!

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 12/18/2017

Everyone was great

5 1 5 01/01/2018

I thought Stratos was professional and easy to work with. We didn't have any problems or communication issues whatsoever. It's really nice when we don't have to deal with 10 different people to coordinate a trip.

5 1 5 06/28/2013

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

5 1 5 07/17/2014

Your company really cares about it's customer and made us feel so comfortable and confident. I would recommend your service to others.

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 01/20/2019

Yes

5 1 5 04/10/2013

Everything was very good, however, I am disappointed that I was quoted one price and was charged another.

5 1 5 04/03/2018

Everything worked out great. Working with Stratos was seamless. When the Trump TFR foiled our plans on both the outbound and inbound legs, Stratos was proactive in finding the best solution for us and minimized the disruption to the timing of our itinerary while also remaining flexible to our schedule as well. Joel could not have been easier to work with, finding us the best options at the best prices.

5 1 5 03/01/2019

The flight was excellent, 24 hours prior Sarah helped us with a departure window and the crew and FBO were really accommodating as we were running behind. Really nice Hawker 900XP nice pilots and smooth flight. Cant give enough praise to the Stratos process and ease.

5 1 5 06/12/2017

Everything went perfect. great job.Yes I would recommend your company to my friends.

5 1 5 02/26/2018

Pre trip work up seemed very professional. Crew had plane positioned on time and assisted with loading. Just my wife and I and two dogs. It was the dogs first flight so we had some concerns but the crew did a great job in getting them aboard and settled down. flight was uneventful and all worked as planned. No issues at all. Very good

Same on return flight except we arrived a good half hour early but crew jumped to task and loaded us and dogs promptly for return. Only item worth mentioning was during climb out to altitude both my wife and I heard numerous bumping sound on both sides of fuselage up and down the sides and top. We have owned our own planes and owned shares in jets through Flight Options and chartered often over the years and we have never had this type of noise. It almost sounded like rivets coming out or random bird strikes (which I knew it was not). I mentioned it to the co-pilot and he told me to report it so maintenance could be sure to check it out. Said it may be a maintenance issue on an older aircraft but a first for me. After attaining altitude the noise did not reoccur. All else went according to schedule and the pilots were very professional and assisted on and off with dogs and luggage. I would use again this service. Thank

Joel Thomas:  Hi William!  Thanks for the opportunity to serve you and your wife.  We are always grateful when our clients take the time to offer feedback.  We reached out to Chief Pilot of the air carrier you flew with regarding the noise you mentioned and here is what they said:  "Frequently you'll hear noises that sound like that and its just the airplane expanding as altitude, temperature and humidity change.  Its actually very common."  Looking forward to working with you all again soon!  All my best

5 1 5 10/22/2018

I like the new summary sheets you are sending, information is the key and they work. Have always loved running for you guy, you make it easy. Thank you for all you do and it is our goal to keep the relationship growing. Thanks Team! Jim

5 1 5 10/18/2013

It was a perfect flight!

5 1 5 12/31/2010

Great trip!  Keep us informed of empty legs to Aspen

5 1 5 04/05/2014

You did great. Garett was great, ground transportation was clean, easy and on-time and seamless. It was a good trip and I have already asked for another quote. Don't know if I will use it depending upon cost as this next one is purely personal. But I would like to.

5 1 5 10/18/2012

My only complaint with Stratos is that Initially, I did not received the lowest price quote.

5 1 5 07/12/2013

We had quite a number of issues booking this trip, which resulted in add'l work and follow up for me. As broker these issues should have been handled / caught prior to making a proposal. I believe I had to sign 4 different revised quote sheets for this trip! Also the final signed sheet stated we would land in LFMD on the return leg. Hence we booked transportation for pick up at LFMD. However flight landed in LFMN. This caused add'l stress and expense for no reason. I have only now seen that the last itinerary link showed an arrival at LFMN - but I never opened this one since all previous ones, including the contract reconfirmation showed LFMD. As for the aircraft itself: it was one of the oldest ones I have ever flown. The door / separation to the toilet / luggage area was broken (not the lock but the entire frame!) and the toilet was not accessible due to a lot of "stuff" (amenities, water bottles, etc.) being thrown in / stored in the area. Overall cleanliness was not superb either. Finally, the catering we requested was not available / not complete. Breakfast (eggwhite and sausage!!) was cold and wet and the fruitplatter had molded grapes; no ice bucket, nor champagne glasses were present. On the return leg, fruitplatter was nice but again no ice bucket nor champagne glasses were present. As a matter of fact, the soft drink container was not even replenished w new ice!! So overall - yes, we flew from A to B but the service experience was disappointing.

5 1 5 08/24/2018

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

5 1 5 05/03/2017

The low approach over Newport was terrific....CAD even stopped talking. Have a nice w/e....David

5 1 5 12/13/2016

Garret has provided excellent service and is attentive and easy to work with. The pilots on this trip were EXCEPTIONAL at dealing with our needs and providing service with the passengers needs and schedule. Very high compliments to the whole team for this flight.

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 07/07/2014

Keep up the good work

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 06/12/2017

Joel and the team at Stratos Jet Charters were great. Even on short notice, Joel was able to charter a plane for me in California and made sure that it was a smooth process the whole trip. He was readily available when I had several last minute changes to the itinerary. Highly recommend.

5 1 5 06/19/2017

Since day one, Joel and his team have been providing us with great customer service and always meet or exceed our needs. They are impeccable in their constant communication, which includes everything from quotes to flight status, and all in between. They are very accommodating to all requests, even the last minute ones. Sarah with trip support has carefully and flawlessly helped with all requested travel arrangements, from car rental to car service. It is hard to find a company these days that is genuine and understands the importance of truly great customer service, and this company and all members of the team, have this! It is very refreshing. I would recommend this company to anyone who has ever thought about trying Jet Charters or has done so for years, it will be a change for the best!

5 1 5 12/28/2013

None that I can think of.  Great flight
