One of the most frequent questions we get asked is “how much does it cost to hire a private jet?”. Private jet pricing consists of several different factors all of which have to be considered when calculating each trip.
Below is a list of the variables and a brief explanation of each cost associated with chartering a private jet;
– Number of passengers – taxes, catering etc. for each passenger
– Distance of the flight – how long will the aircraft be flying for?
– Size of the aircraft – how much does the aircraft cost to fly per hour?
– Re position involved both before and after the trip – is a ferry flight required?
We take the stress out of hiring a private jet by providing you an all in price every time we quote and providing trip support right up until you land.

When a private jet is flying back to its base with no passengers on board, either after a one way trip or flying to another airport between trips, the cost is partially paid for by the previous flight, this is called an empty leg. Empty leg flights can offer significant savings of up to 75% to our customers who are looking to hire a private jet. Visit our empty leg page for more information.
