Charter flight costs are determined by a combination of the following factors:

  • The cost of fuel.
  • The number of pilots and crew needed for the private plane charter.
  • The distance flown and route taken.
  • The size of the plane & number of passengers.
  • The type of private plane; small prop up to big private jet.
  • Aircraft availability (where is the plane based)?
  • Is it a once only trip or perhaps part of a regular contract?
  • Type of plane used for private flights (class of travel; economy, business or first class)
  • Is it same day return or is there one or more overnight stays required?
  • Demand for chartered flights (sometimes we need to use a different class or size of plane)

The private plane cost is for the return trip as the plane always returns to its home base.

Also keep in mind the private jet cost is for the entire aircraft, regardless of how many seats are filled. Therefore, to get the per head cost, simply divide the total charter flight cost by the number of passengers.

In business, the phrases ‘time is money’ often rings true and there are many benefits to travelling with maximum efficiency. With a private jet hire, there is never any waiting in airports, check-in delays and there is flexibility with the schedule. As the industry becomes more and more affordable, private jet costs can work out very competitively if travelling with a team. You may wish to take additional team members if there are any empty seats to maximise the value.

What is the cost to book a seat on a private jet?

When renting a private jet, you are hiring the entire aircraft for your journey. It is not possible to pay for a seat only, however you can calculate the ‘seat’ price by understanding the total private jet cost. For example, let’s say you are renting a King Air aircraft and your route has a total private jet cost of $12,600. If you filled all 9 seats, you are looking at $1,400 pp. This figure is helpful to compare the cost of flying commercial (economy, business or first class). In some cases, a private jet can be more cost effective when filling all seats.

It is sometimes possible to share a private jet with another customer. We have done this occasionally for pet owners who have the same route. Please contact us to learn more.

Empty leg flights

Empty leg flights are when a private jet has one leg of the journey without passengers. As an aircraft always returns to its ‘home’ base, we can occasionally offer private jet costs in such a situation at a heavily reduced rate.
