Air Taxi

Are you looking for a private travel solution that is comfortable, convenient and affordable? AEROAFFAIRES offers air taxi rental where you can reduce the cost of private flights by travelling in small private jets.

What are air taxis?

Air taxi companies came about in the early 1960s to fill a gap between regular commercial aviation, VIP charter flights and aeroclub offers in tourist aircraft. These companies wanted to democratise business aviation by offering private jet hire based on a low-cost model. The profitability of air taxis is due to the large number of flight hours, between 400 and 600 hours, per month.

As one of the smaller jets, an air taxi is the most cost-effective option for getting around quickly and cheaply over short distances. They are economical and fast, making them perfectly suited for business trips. Taxi aeroplanes are usually either 4-seat private light jets (Very Light Jet) or propeller planes (turboprop) that can land and take off on short runways. This means increased flexibility as flights can connect to more than 3,000 airports in Europe compared to 300 for airliners. You and your group will therefore fly direct to the closest airport to your final destination.

Why charter a taxi aircraft with AEROAFFAIRES?

Perfect situations for an air taxi:

  • A quick one-day round trip to a city not served by commercial aviation and scheduled flights
  • For a one-day circular flight visiting several branches all over Europe
  • Flights to an airfield with a short runway such as Saint Tropez, Andernos les Bains or Gstaad
  • An urgent direct flight (factory visit, crisis management, etc.)
  • Staff transfers for one-off industrial projects or for sports matches

How much does an air taxi cost?

There are two types of taxi jet available to hire: turboprops such as the Pilatus PC 12 (propeller), which is ideal for short distances, and faster private jets such as the Citation Jet Mustang or Phenom 100 for medium distance flights.

Hiring a jet taxi costs between 1,900 and 2,400 euros per hour excluding tax for a flight with four to six passengers (VAT is 10% for domestic flights, flights abroad are exempt).

Prices are calculated based on a minimum flight time of two hours (a round trip) and the airline will incorporate start-up costs and airport handling charges. If you are located in a remote or isolated area away from an aircraft base, you will be charged for an empty flight from its base to your departure destination.

In a taxi plane, the price is a flat rate no matter the number of passengers and you have the luxury of choosing your take-off times. In the event that you need to change your plans because of delays or traffic, you have the possibility of postponing your departure time at no additional cost, however, the return flight must be made on the same day. On your arrival at the airport, the boarding procedure is much less restrictive than commercial flights, you just need to arrive ten minutes before take-off time.
