One of the most frequent questions we’re asked at PrivateFly – whether it’s from a client, the media, or even our friends – is always “how much does a private jet cost?” This question isn’t easy to answer, since there are a lot of factors that go into each private jet flight, including aircraft type and the airport used.

Instead, we’ve decided to showcase five flights we arranged for passengers this week, along with their prices, as insight into the vast array of costs and flight types that happen here at PrivateFly.


One flight we flew this week was for a group of executives from a major oil and gas corporation who needed to fly from one office in London to another in Aberdeen for an important meeting. However, they all needed to get back to London that same night.

This is when private jet travel shines, allowing for quick and flexible flights that can help busy executives maximize their time, even when traveling to different countries. At PrivateFly, we frequently arrange corporate jet charter for various industries around the world, including oil and gas.

The Caribbean season is coming to a close, but the amount of travelers flying to the area hasn’t slowed down yet.

A very popular route for private jet customers, most clients (like this one) take an international airline flight into the larger hub island of St Maarten then arranged a seamless private aircraft transfer to nearby St Barts.

Both landings at St Barts and St Maarten are currently in the running for most stunning airport landing – both providing amazing views of the turquoise ocean. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite by clicking here.

This winter has been rough for those in the Northeast, and we’re seeing a few clients looking for an escape. This client decided to head down to Miami with a few of their friends for some warmth, sun and relaxation.

And since this was a leisure trip, the client wanted to fly in style, but without having to blow his entire budget. Thanks to PrivateFly’s software, which allows customers to compare private jet prices online, this client was able to choose the best luxury aircraft for his budget without any hassle.

Some trips aren’t always very simple to arrange. Instead of getting a flight request from A to B, there can sometimes involve a C, D and sometimes even an N (yes, we have arranged a 14-leg itinerary once!). Complex, multi-leg trips really showcase the unique nature of private jet travel.

A recent flight had three legs for a client, who was coming over to Germany for an event, but was also looking to make a trip to two locations in Italy, before heading back home. The client was bringing along a large group with him, so he needed to make sure they chose an aircraft that could bring them all, plus their entire luggage, without being cramped.
