If you don’t want to be rubbing elbows with hundreds of others on a commercial airplane, or waiting for hours in lines and security (or on the runway, just to get delayed) then renting a private jet is a great option. But how feasible is it, really?
Let’s find out.
How Expensive Is Renting a Private Jet?
While traveling by private aircraft may still be expensive, it’s no longer an exclusive privilege reserved only for the ultrarich and celebrities. However, the spread in pricing is vast, to say the least, and greatly depends on the size, amenities, and luxury of your plane, as well as the length of your trip.
Basic private jet travel can cost as little as $5,000 for a one-hour short trip on a turboprop or more than $40,000 to have a jet all to yourself for a trip from coast to coast.
It’s true that renting a private jet will cost you more than flying in first-class or business class, but the personalized service and upgraded luxury are worth the cost for many – plus, it is much faster!
Check out these hourly rental estimates for private jets from 2020, when many used private jets in lieu of commercial airlines.
- Light jet (4 to 7 passengers): $3,500 to $5,500/hr
- Midsize jet (6 to 8 passengers): $5,500 to $8,000/hr
- Super Midsize jet (6 to 9 passengers): $6,500 to $9,500/hr
- Heavy jet (10 to 15 passengers): $10,000 to $20,000/hr
