What are the other options?
Most people, even the rich and famous, can’t afford to buy their own private jet so Instead, let’s see what the costs are to charter a private jet.
While renting a private jet is considerably more expensive than flying on a commercial flight, it is still much cheaper than buying a private jet. Flights on private jets are chargeable by the hour, and prices vary depending on the size of the plane, flying time and the number of people on board.
The typical cost is between £3,000 and £16,000 per hour to charter a private jet. Hiring a plane for a weekend can run £250,000 or more. However, unless you spend more than 200 hours a year flying, renting is probably a better option than buying. That way will you avoid many of the yearly maintenance costs.
What else should you consider?
Consider why the choice to fly private is an option; is it because long wait times are an issue? All commercial airliners work on a set schedule, and whether you’re travelling first-class or back in economy, you’ll all arrive at the same time.
Commercial passenger aircraft operate out of principal airports and, because of their size, these commercial planes have to wait to use the larger runways. Holding patterns always mean congestion and anyone who flies regularly knows just what it’s like to remain on the runway or in a holding pattern for ages, this can be time-consuming and very annoying.
Private jets, however, can access thousands of airports across the country. They can use shorter runways, fly on less congested routes, and leave exactly when you want them too. You set the schedule, and that means faster flights.
The combination of these things is adding up after all time is money.
