How much does it cost to rent a business jet: what decides the price ?


  • The number of travellers
  • The number of pieces of luggage

On-board services

  • the comfort
  • the catering service
  • special requests (WiFi, berths etc).

The Schedule

  • departure and return dates: you want to take off for a weekend? During the week? During the holidays?
    length of stay: do you want to make the round trip during the day or stay for a few days?
  • timetables: private aircraft flights take place outside the schedules generally used by commercial airliners.

The private jet rental fare will be more economical if you choose to make a return trip within the day. Why is this? Airline operators ground the aircraft at the destination if the duration of the appointment is short. For a longer stay, the aircraft leaves empty at its base, which affects the final price.

The crew

  • number of pilots and hostesses on board
  • travel expenses: depending on the destination and the length of the stay, you will be responsible for the costs related to the crew (hotel nights, return flights, empty or not, etc.).


  • airport fees: these are multiple and include the landing tax, parking, hangar, the fee due to the airport, passenger transfers, services offered within the aerodrome…etc.
  • the costs of care and maintenance of the device
    the fuel

Charter a private jet necessarily generate costs related to airports and their maintenance.

La destination


  • the distance between the departure airport and the destination: flight time
  • destination-related taxes such as Italian taxes, VAT etc.

Depending on the elements mentioned above, the price of the rental will vary. Our experts will define the type of private aircraft that suits the client’s request. Indeed, business aircraft have their own characteristics, more or less adequate to the desired requirements. It is also this essential element, the choice of jet, which determines the price of a rental.


The type of private jet

The price of the jet rental also depends on the items listed here:

  • size: adapted to the number of passengers (passengers and crew) ;
    hold: volume of luggage to be transported;
  • range: depending on the desired destination, we will choose among the different models of private aircraft. The category of the private rented jet and its cruising speed will influence the cost. Indeed, a very light jet is more suitable for short journeys within a range of 2,000 km than a heavy jet, which is more suitable for a long-haul flight ;
  • comfort: the level of comfort and services required according to your needs (catering, cabin layout etc) guides us to a type of jet from our available fleet.
  • Age of the aircraft.


Other technical elements change the price of a flight, such as obtaining a night hangar. Some airports are very busy in summer but are nevertheless small, as is the case with small business airports such as Figari, Saint Tropez, Ibiza or Mykonos. These airports have very tightly controlled operating processes which we, as air brokers, take into account in order to prevent any misunderstandings about the rates for our clients. Indeed, if the jet cannot park for one night due to lack of space, the captain will take the aircraft to a nearby and less congested airport. This will result in additional flight costs, which will increase the rental price.

An essential element: the AOC (Air Operator Certificate)

Business aviation brokers will search for you the most suitable aircraft for the trip you wish to make. AEROAFFAIRES only offers private flights by TPP (Public Passenger Transport). These business flights only involve private jets or helicopter transport operated by airlines with an AOC (Air Operator’s Certificate). It is a necessary and compulsory licence to fly in complete safety. Previously, this certificate required two engines for two pilots. In 2017, however, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) will officially allow commercial flights on board single-engined aircraft with guaranteed safety, such as the Pilatus PC-12 or the TBM 850.

In short: what is included in the price of a private jet trip?

In concrete terms, what does the price of a business trip consist of? Schematically, a private flight ticket can be divided into several parts:

the cost of renting the aircarft

the remuneration of Flight Crew (PNT): crew members and pilots

costs related to airport charges and services

services on board (meals, bed linen reservation, etc.).

These elements make up the overall price of your ticket. The cost of hiring the aircraft naturally takes up a large part of the fare, as mentioned above.

When we charter a private jet flight, it is not entirely appropriate to speak of “ticket price”. By definition, flying in a private jet implies a global privatisation of the aircraft and therefore of all the passenger seats. Thus, the cost of renting a jet is linked to its size: the more seats it has, the higher the rental price. Several ranges of aircraft exist. This is why booking a flight aboard a 4-seater Citation Mustang will be one of the most economical options on the market. Conversely, renting an aircraft with a more spacious and luxurious cabin will be more expensive.

Let’s take a Paris-Nice charter flight as a reference to compare prices:

  • For a flight in a light private jet with 3-7 seats, count 5,050 €.
  • For an intermediate private jet flight with 6-14 seats, count €10,050.
  • For a long-haul private jet flight with 6-20 seats, count 13 750 €.
