Private jet charter rates vary by size of aircraft and are rented on a per hour basis. Typically there is a 2 hour minimum rental for each aircraft. The amount of passengers needed for your trip will determine your aircraft size as well as your destination. There are many factors that go into the price of chartering a private airplane. Some things to consider when comparing rates for private jets:
- Size And Year Of Aircraft
- Brand Or Type Of Jet
- Amount Of Miles To/From Destination
- Time Of Year Traveling
- Fuel Costs
- Pilot Costs
Empty seats on charter flights or “Empty Legs” are another popular way to travel by private airplane. Empty leg flights are one-way flights that have been booked with no return flight scheduled. This allows passengers to get a discounted single trip flight for substantially cheaper hourly rates.
