Executive Fliteways has been assisting our clients with aircraft charter solutions for over 38 years. While individuals and organizations that rely on private aviation represent many different professions and locations, they all have one thing in common: the need for fast, flexible, safe, secure and cost effective access to destinations across the country and around the world. In many instances, private aviation is the appropriate transportation solution, opening the door to global commerce for small-community and rural populations by linking them directly to population centers and manufacturing facilities. A majority of our inquiries are individuals and organizations who are looking for air transportation solutions and thus one of the number one questions is how much does it cost to charter a private jet? By contacting EFI at 1.800.533.3363 our aviation professionals can assist you 24/7 by providing you an estimate or formal air charter quote on how much does it cost to charter a private jet by providing some preliminary information that includes:
What is your departure point and destination(s)?
The distance between these two locations helps define the size of aircraft you will need. The longer the distance the larger the size of aircraft you will need, unless you are willing to stop for refueling. The number of people and the amount of baggage you will be traveling with. Very simply, more people and/or more baggage will require a larger, more expensive aircraft. Other items that can affect the price are the departure time and date since prices increase during periods of peak demand. Your return plans are another key pricing element, so if the plane just takes you one way and has to fly back empty you may end up covering the cost of that empty flight.

Benefits of Chartering a Private Jet
The benefits of private aviation are clear: Aircraft charter allows for efficient, flexible, safe, secure and cost effective access to destinations across the country and around the world. Because employees can meet, plan and work with each other aboard business aircraft, productivity en route is greatly enhanced. In many instances, aircraft charter is the best or only transportation option available, opening the door to global commerce for small-community and rural populations by linking them directly to population centers and manufacturing facilities. Aircraft charter allows clients to make a trip involving stops at several locations, then return to headquarters the same day. Hundreds or thousands of dollars can be saved on hotel rooms, rental cars, meals and other expenses that would be needed to make the same trip over several days via auto, train or airline transport.
