Large Jets – Private Jet Cost per Hour

One of the advantages of private jet charter is paying for the hours you fly. Your private jet cost per hour can easily be used to estimate the cost of a trip, though other tools can give a much more accurate estimate; our booking engine for example can calculate with near flawless accuracy nearly every itinerary you can think of. Large jets account for a major part of the private jet workforce, and have a reputation for being a very comfortable way to travel. Some long ranged jets offer the same in-cabin space and features as long range jets, but lack in range. For domestic trips or even standard international flights, a large jet is usually more than sufficient in terms of range, speed and comfort. Large jets typically cost between $4,000 and $10,000 an hour to charter. Keep in mind that this rate is for actual airtime, and also the airtime for the aircraft to fly to pick you up at your departure location, as well as the cost of ferrying the aircraft back to it’s base are are included in the calculations. Though as previously noted in the previous article about long ranged jets, finding an empty leg is not difficult given enough warning and time to search for a suitable aircraft, in which case, you would only be responsible for the airtime you personally use.

Large jets as a whole have a reasonable hourly cost for charter, while long range jets start at approximately $8,000 an hour, large jets offer that starting at half of the price. Large jets traditionally have a range under 4,000 nautical miles, which is still more than enough for most intercontinental flights as well as nearly every domestic flight you could imagine. Though large jets have slightly narrower cabins and do not allow full sized bedroom suites and full sized lavatories with showers, they still offer much of the comfort and in-cabin amenities as their longer ranged counterparts.
