COST TO CHARTER A PLANE TO/FROM CHICAGO
One of the most common questions we are asked is, “How much does it cost to book a private jet?” The simple answer is that it depends on a number of different factors, such as the distance traveled, the size and type of aircraft used, and the time you require the aircraft for.
Every journey is unique, which means there is no standard as to what a private jet charter flight may cost. However, to give you an idea, you can access our live quoting tool to price out your charter route(s). We have also included some steps you can take to make your private jet experience more transparent
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE COST OF PRIVATE JET CHARTER?
It is important to understand what is included in your private jet charter quote. Although a reputable private jet charter company will talk you through your options and the associated costs to keep you on budget, we have provided a list of what you typically get included in the price:
HOURLY RATE: This is the hourly cost incurred by operating the aircraft. For short flights aboard larger jets, the operator may require a minimum charge (usually 2-3 hours).
PERMITS: Payable when flying over countries outside of the US. Additionally, some airports, during special events, may require a Prior Permission Required (PPR) number before arrival.
LANDING, HANDLING, AND PARKING: These fees are charged by airports and depend on the weight and size of aircraft.
CATERING: Included catering will vary depending on the size of aircraft and the duration of your flight. A light jet may only be able to provide snacks and soft drinks, while a heavy jet equipped with a full galley will more likely serve a full meal. Similarly, if your flight is short, there may not be sufficient time for a full catering service. Any specifically requested items or meals may be provided at an additional cost.
OUT OF HOURS: Only select airports operate 24/7, although some airports may charge out of hours fees to extend their opening hours for arrivals or departures during the night. Similarly, if you need cabin crew overnight, or to stay in a destination overnight, this will add to the cost. However, if we are aware of the details of your itinerary, we will include this in the price quoted.
REPOSITIONING FEES: If an aircraft is located outside of your departure city the plane will need to reposition to the airport that is being utilized. Under normal circumstances the aircraft that is being used will be in your region. This flight is also referred to as a deadhead and is charged at a subsidized rate. A reputable charter advisor will present aircraft with the least amount of repositioning.
WI-FI/PHONE: Depending on the aircraft, use of Wi-Fi and the phone on board may be included or charged according to usage, per minute/MB. Your aircraft charter consultant will be able to confirm this at time of quoting.
HOW CAN I GET THE BEST PRIVATE JET CHARTER PRICE?
