Private Jet Charter Cost Estimator

If you’re looking to charter a private jet, but unsure how much a particular trip will cost, the best thing to do is to get a direct quote from our team. Many people think that the online or app-based jet cost estimators they find are the best prices they’ll see. That is furthest from the truth in this world.

How it works?…

Most of the automatic price jet cost estimators simply pull jets from a national database where operators have uploaded them with a specific hourly minimum cost. This gives brokers and websites the ability to create these automatic jet charter estimators that show how much instantly. They simply pull that data based on your search needs while the app marks up the price 15-30% from what we see typically.

While it’s great you get a price instantly, in the end you’ll pay more. This is a fact. How do we know this? We own and operate our own private jet charter and turbo-prop fleet based in Miami and Boston. We also use the same broker network if needed to book planes for our customers when all our jets are booked, and we need to find our customers a plane.

How much does a private jet cost to fly?

If you’re looking to charter a private jet, it’s a great idea to acquire some estimated costs for the overall price. The type of jet you fly on determines the price as well as other factors like the distance flown and maybe even what airports you’ll fly into… international fees, taxes, landing fees, or even requests to land as some airports are private and for members of certain clubs in their area.

The cost of a private jet charter is normally based on an hourly rate. Although the cost of a chartered flight is based on different factors, prices generally range from $2,900 hourly for a light jet to $12,000 and up hourly for larger private jets. Remember, these are approximate and vary on all sorts of factors.

What’s involved in private jet charter costs?

Here are some of costs that determine how much you’ll pay when chartering a private jet:

  1. Pilots and staff payments – The longer your destination, the more you have to compensate your pilots and staff for their time. The bigger the private jet is, the more staff it may need.
  2. Insurance Fees – Private jets have large insurance bills, and this is factored into the price you pay. Some celebrity travelers end up requiring higher premiums…essentially, you’ll pay more if you’re famous.
  3. Fuel – One of the most obvious running costs is your fuel consumption. Depending how far and how long, this needs to be factored in.
  4. Maintenance – As you might know, jets have very high maintenance costs to keep them safe, operational and ready for flights.
  5. On-board facilities – You probably enjoy the on-board catering, drinks, and other such amenities. These will most likely be included in the price.
