How Much Does a Private Jet Charter Cost?
So what does it cost to charter a private jet? In general turboprop and very light jets like King Air 200 and Citation Mustang cost from $1,500 to $3,000 per flying hour; light and midsize jets such as the Phenom 300 and the Citation XLS range from $4,000 to $6,500 per flying hour, while super-mid and large private jets like Challenger 300 and Gulfstream G650 range from $7,000 to $13,000 per flying hour.
Hourly Rates For Charter Aircraft
Aircraft categories differ not only by size, capacity and flight range but also the cost per hour of chartering them. Below you can see the price ranges for each category Stratos Jets offer.
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.

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.
