How much does a private jet charter cost?

Private jet charter costs can vary depending on different factors, but in general, the smaller the aircraft, the more affordable the hourly rate will be. A turboprop charter starts around $2,000 an hour, while a heavy jet charter costs closer to $10,000 an hour.

The demand to fly on a private jet is increasing as passengers look for an alternative to commercial flying. You could buy a private jet, but a typical private jet price can range from several hundred thousand dollars to millions of dollars. This doesn’t even include ongoing fees such as fuel, staffing, and maintenance.

With a private jet charter service, you can fly on a luxurious private jet without breaking the bank. Private jet charter rates are significantly lower than buying your own private plane, and unless you fly roughly 150 hours or more a year, buying your own private jet just doesn’t make sense. According to Bankrate, with private jet charter rates, you don’t have to pay maintenance fees, crew salaries, insurance, or interest.

To provide clients with a quick snapshot of the costs associated with booking a private jet charter, we put together private jet charter cost estimates from some common routes and aircrafts.

Please note that the private jet charter rates provided through the online private jet cost calculator are estimates only. For a more detailed and accurate estimate, we invite you to speak with one of our private flight advisors by calling 888-593-9066.

How are private jet charter prices determined?

The private jet charter cost is determined by three major considerations:

  • Type of aircraft being chartered
  • Availability of the preferred aircraft
  • Location of the aircraft relative to the departure location and post-flight positioning requirements

Where as the travel details will help us determine the type of aircraft needed:

  • Travel Dates and Route
  • Number of Passengers
  • Amount of luggage
  • Special Needs and Requests

Once we’ve received the answers to those considerations, our private flight advisors can create an in-depth, accurate estimate that explains the private jet chartered flight cost.

Providing clients with in-depth market analysis

We present clients with a range of aircraft and pricing options for a given flight itinerary. Our intention is to provide clients with insights into the operational history of each air carrier, the capabilities of each aircraft in an effort to help them make informed buying decisions

In order to provide clients with the most accurate private jet charter flight cost estimate possible, our flight advisors look at price-determining factors such as:

  • Historical private jet charter rates
  • Standard availability
  • Seasonal costs, like de-icing
  • Landing & airport fees

Our Private Flight Advisors are intimately familiar with each air carrier and can help recommend the right operator as well as aircraft. Stratos has 15 years of STRONG relationships, I have served as the Chairman of the air charter safety foundation and am currently on the ARGUS Business Aviation Consumer Advisory Board.

Are there any additional fees included in my private jet rental cost ?

Firm quotes provided by Stratos private flight advisors are based on a specific aircraft's availability and are considered "all-in" prices, which include all taxes and any other anticipated fees. We bill all expected flight-related costs upfront so that there'll be no surprises.

There are some circumstances, however, in which additional charges may arise unexpectedly and increase your private jet flight cost. During winter, for example, your aircraft may require de-icing or a heated hangar prior to departure. Since this is oftentimes an unforeseen expense, you would bear the additional cost and would see that bill after your trip.

For flight itineraries requiring multiple days on the ground before returning to the 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, incurring additional fees.

If you have an upcoming trip, please reach out to a Stratos private flight advisor today. We’d be pleased to provide you with honest and fair charter pricing. 888-593-9066

How can you fly a charter more affordably?

Flying on a private jet used to seem unreachable for many travelers. However, with affordable private jet charter prices, experiencing this luxury is now more commonplace. If you are looking for ways to make charter flights even more affordable, the first thing you should do is join our Soar Membership program. In exchange for monthly membership payments, you lock in private jet charter pricing for either 6 or 12 months and enjoy other benefits such as flexible cancellations. As a member, when you want to travel, all you have to do is hop on board.

Another way to lower private jet charter costs is by taking a group. If you travel by yourself, you will most likely be stuck paying for every seat on the plane. If you bring friends or family, you can divide up the cost, which can distribute the cost among each traveler similar to a commercial flight. This way you can have more fun and save money.
