What is the price of a private jet rental? This is the most recurrent question we are asked by our clients, friends when we mention we are air charter bróker. “You work with private jet charter?! How much does it cost?” The answer at first sight can seem very easy to tell, an app or a jet cost calculator can help you in having a rough idea. But the eye of an expert of aviation is required to give you the best advice and give you a real precise price for your private jet flight. Our Commercial team is here to help you with that.
There are lots of common belief about that subject, like thinking that this is a privilege that can only afford a few amongst the richest persons on planet Earth.
Several segments exist on the private jet market for a corresponding type of client and needs. To keep it simple I usually compare it with a the car market: a Ferrari has not the same cost as a Citroen C1 and not the same use neither. We will give you more details below.
The Price of a private jet flight depends on several factors:
1. Private jet category:
The private jet category will determine the cost per hour of a flight. For instance un single engine light aircraft ( like a Pilatus PC 12) does not have the same price as a heavyjet equipped with 3 engines ( such as a Falcon 900).
The two main points that helps to know the category of your private jet charter are:
- the number of passengers on board.
- the duration of the flight.
In conclusion, the more passengers on board and the longer the flight is, the heavier and the more expensive the private jet flight will be.
Besides, the amount of luggage and the comfort required on board will also have a significant impact on the cost of your flight. For instance we have clients that prefer to travel with a Falcon 2000 eventhough they are 2 on board and flying a short distance. On the other side, we have passenger very happy to pay less money for a very light jet such as a Citation jet 1 for the same trip.
In conclusion , depending on the size of the plane , the price of a private jet rental can be from 1.800 euros / hour with a small turboproppeller up to 20.000 euros / hour with a Boeing business jet.
Cost of a private jet rental / hour:
- Very light jet up to 5 passengers => from 2.400 euros the hour.
- Light jet up to 7 seats => starting from 2.900 euros / hour.
- Super light jet up to 8 passengers => from 3.500 euros / hour.
- Midsize jet up to 9 passengers => from 4.500 euros / hour.
- Heavy Jet up to 13 passengers => from 6.500 euros / hour.
- Ultra long range up to 16 passengers and 13h30 of flight => starting from 8.500 euros the hour.
These are examples of prices. Do not hesitate to contact our team for more information and obtain a real quote.
2.Duration of the Trip:
Another aspect that has an effect on the cost of a private flight is the duration of your stay. As a matter of fact, if the stay is short ( a few days maximum), the operator can leave the aircraft parked at destination. This means less flying hours for your aircraft, meaning a better price for your private jet charter.
Usually the cheapest private jet flights are usually a day return flight: which means outbound and inbound in the same day. We operate those flights for business meetings for example. Each night spent at destination generates costs for the crew such as hotel accommodation, meals and extra parking costs for the aircraft ( in case the parking is granted).
3. Other technical factors that affect the price of a private jet:
=> the approval of a long term parking has an impact on the price of a private jet rental:
To maintain your private jet parked at destination you need to know in advance if the airport can grant you a long stay parking. As professionals of aviation, Eurosky staff anticipates that kind of technical details to avoid unexpected costs for your charter.
Some airports are heavily restricted during high season (Ibiza, Mikonos airport have the worst procedure in that field), and moving your private jet to the closest airport with parking availability can cost you a minimum of 1 hour extra.
Example of repositioning extra cost for a private flight charter:
- Empty leg Mykonos – Athens -Mykonos : between 3.000 and 8.000 euros
- Empty leg Ibiza – Valencia – Ibiza: additional cost between 4.000 euros and 10.000 euros.
We always anticipates those extra costs in our quotation for private jet rental.
=> the schedule of a private jet flight can change the final price:
The schedule of a flight has its importance on the final cost of private jet rental. First of all , not all airport are 24/7. In those cases, passed a certain hour you can still operate but airport may require an additional fee to remain opened. Fo instance, an airport like Zadar in Croatia has an additional fee ( called OOH: out of Hour) of 250 euros / H. passed 22h00 local.
Secondly, some airports apply an increased fee for the use of their facilities during special dates. Indeed, in London airport, the price for the handling service is multiplied by two on the 25th and 26th of December.
And finally, we remind that some private jet operators apply and extra cost into their rate when they have to operate a night flight. This is mainly the case for operators using Floating base system to set the price of a private jet rental. When you are flying until late, it may result impossible to fly the following morning due to the lack of activity for the crew.
=> Passenger taxes can represent an important part of the price of a private jet charter:
For instance, in Italy you have to pay what it is called the Italian Luxury Taxe. The amount is determined by the distance flown by the aircraft (only for business aviation): 100 euros / pax for each departure and arrival of flights covering less than 1.500 km // 200 euros / pax for each departure and arrival for flights of more than 1.500 km.
As a consequence, a very short flight can have an additional fee of 1.200 euros.
A part from Italia, some other airports apply an amount for passenger taxes that is quiet elevated: uk airports, Ibiza, Madrid, Barcelona to name a few.
=>on board service such as the catering will change the cost of a private jet rental:
In the quotation of a flight, the standard of the operator is always included. This dotation depends on the type of private jet and also on the registration of the aircraft.
In Europe, the standard included goes from snacks and drinks up to a complete VIP meal. Luxury catering such as Caviar or Grand Cru are not included and if you want to include those kind of items, the cost of your private jet charter can increase a lot.
