Paying for a charter flight is similar to purchasing commercial airline tickets; you are expected to pay in full before your scheduled trip. Payment can be made by credit card, bank transfer or direct billing for qualified clients.

If you are thinking that renting a private jet is comparable or slightly more expensive than flying first class on airlines, it is NOT. Some private jets can cost more than a commercial jet because they are equipped with the latest safety equipment, avionics equipment and services available today.

Its cost can range from as little as 4 to 6 million for a small Jet to more than 100 million for a large Jet depending on the aircraft. So get ready for the impact of the sticker, the saying we hear most from new customers is "I don't want to buy the Jet, I just want to rent it"

Most private private flight companies require a minimum time of two hours of flight per day. You will also have to pay the cost of returning the plane to your base if you are booking a one-way trip or traveling to multiple destinations. If your flight includes one night stay, you may have to pay the crew's expenses.

Customers who charter a private jet pay for the time the plane is actually in the air, along with airport usage charges, taxes, other optional fees and services such as Catering, flight phone, and ground transportation. Most operators have a minimum daily use requirement, with the standard two hours flying per day.

For one-way trips or trips from multiple cities that do not return to the same city, the operator incurs the cost of returning the plane to its base, so customers must pay for that return flight time. For overnight trips, the additional costs of the crew? The expenses per night are included in the price of the trip.

For trips of more than one night, the distance traveled will determine if the plane will wait for you at your location or return to its base and then fly back to pick you up at the end of your trip.
