How do Hourly Charter Rates factor into Renting a Private Jet?

The hourly charter rate of a private jet is multiplied by the flight time, but does not cover the entire cost to charter the aircraft.

The hourly rate of a plane only covers access to rent the aircraft, while things like fuel, taxes, and other operational fees and charges such as catering or Wi-Fi usage are added to the rental price to complete the entire charter cost.

For example, if you’re booking a light jet that has an hourly rate of $4,000, and want to perform a 1 and a half hour flight, the rental portion of the price would account for $6,000.

When adding the fuel costs, taxes, operational fees such as pilots, landing fees, ground handling and FBO; as well as any additional services such as catering or internet, the total charter cost may range between $10,000 to $15,000, depending on routing and passenger/baggage totals.

Executive turboprops available for charter come in single or twin-engine configurations and look similar to piston aircraft with one major difference – the engine. Turboprops are powered by a jet engine, offering increased levels of speed, reliability, and fuel efficiency.

Light jets are the ideal category for individuals and smaller groups booking a private flight, with higher levels of performance and additional cabin amenities compared to light aircraft and turboprops, and better rates than larger business jets.

The cost to charter a light jet ranges between $2,500 and $5,000 an hour, depending on the type of light jet – the category contains 3 types of aircraft: very light jets (also known as entry-level), light jets, and super light jets.

Very Light Jets (VLJ) are the smallest private jets available, with seating for up to 4 passengers, while super light jets offer additional room and longer range than standard light jets, with some models able to cover up to 1,800 nautical miles.

Midsize jets provide enough range to travel across most areas of Mexico with larger, more luxurious cabins with several models in this category offering standing room.

The average hourly charter rate for midsize and super midsize jets range between $4,500 and $9,000 per hour, with some of the newer, most advanced super midsize jets carrying premium costs due to their capabilities and popularity.

Their interiors resemble a small luxury apartment, with a variety of seating arrangements including captains chairs, divans, and even beds for overnight travel. Many large jets offer conference rooms for executives to conduct their business mid-flight.

The cost to charter a private flight on newer, larger jets in this category can quickly climb into the 6 figures, with rates starting at around $8,000-$15,000 an hour and some models as high as $20,000 or more per hour.
