There are many misconceptions about business aviation and private jets. Private jet travel is not just for celebrities or footballers! And it can be quite affordable and sometimes even more cost-effective than flying commercially. If you’re looking for a cost-effective solution, consider renting small business jets that offer great value for money. While there are many options for travelling by private jet at lower cost, such as empty flights or group flights for example, AEROAFFAIRES presents a selection of the cheapest private jets for hire.


However, it is important to distinguish between public and private transport. This list of cheap private jets obviously only includes business jets for public transport, and not for tourist or leisure aviation (private transport).


The Piper Seneca


The Piper Seneca PA 34 is a twin engine aircraft. This aircraft is one of the lightest aircraft available for hire. Although it is not widely used in business aviation, it is quite possible to book it. The cost per hour is approximately 450€. Add to this the cost of the crew and you get a very good rate for the 6 passengers that can travel. This jet is very efficient over short distances. Indeed, its flight autonomy is 1350 km. You can then fly without worrying about connections such as NantesGeneva, or Paris – Lyon.



The Diamond DA 42


It is one of the smallest private jets available for hire. The Diamond DA 42 carries 3 passengers in its cabin. It has a range of 1800 km. This allows it to fly short regional distances. The advantage of small private jets and business aviation in general is that you have access to 10 times more airports than in commercial aviation. With the Diamond DA 42, fly from Clermont-Ferrand to Saint-Malo for example! The cost per hour on this business aircraft is from €500.

The Citation M2


From aircraft manufacturer Cessna, the Citation M2 provides fast, economical and efficient travel. The cabin interior is spacious and stylish. It accommodates up to 7 passengers for a maximum distance of 2,900 km. This small private jet is widely used due to its reliability and safety. In addition, the Citation M2 is the successor and expanded version of the renowned Citation Mustang! The M2 has all the improvements and important points of the Mustang. The more people on board, the lower the price of the private jet and the cheaper the flight.

From Paris to Ajaccio: from €6,750 (from €965 per person)

From Paris to Geneva: from €4,200 (from €600 per person)

The Citation Mustang


The Citation Mustang is one of the most popular private jets in business aviation for short haul flights. Such an aircraft is a safe bet and proves an undeniable quality-price ratio.

  • What is the most expensive private jet ?

    The most expensive private jet currently available for purchase is the Gulfstream G700, which has a price tag of around $75 million. The G700 is Gulfstream‘s latest and largest business jet, with a range of 7,500 nautical miles and the ability to seat up to 19 passengers. It features advanced avionics and technology, including an active control sidestick and predictive landing performance system, as well as luxurious amenities such as a master suite with a shower, a dining area, and an entertainment system. Other expensive private jets include the Bombardier Global 7500 and the Dassault Falcon 8X, which have price tags of around $72 million and $59 million, respectively. These figures are quite far from the prices of the cheapest private jets we just introduced you to.

  • What is the fastest private jet ?

    The fastest private jet currently in production is the Cessna Citation X+, which has a maximum cruising speed of Mach 0.935, or about 717 miles per hour. The Citation X+ is powered by two Rolls-Royce AE 3007C2 turbofan engines, each of which produces 7,034 pounds of thrust.

Other fast private jets include the Gulfstream G650, which has a maximum cruising speed of Mach 0.925, and the Dassault Falcon 8X, which has a maximum cruising speed of Mach 0.90. Of course, with such performances, these aicrafts are far from being the cheapest private jets.
