How much does a private jet cost?

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

  • The cost of fuel.
  • The number of pilots and crew.
  • The distance flown and route taken.
  • The size of the plane & number of passengers.
  • The type of private plane; small prop up to big jet.
  • Aircraft availability (where is the plane based)?
  • Is it a once only trip or perhaps part of a regular contract?
  • Type of plane (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.
