Some other examples of prices come from Avinode, which powers a charter marketplace for brokers and operators and gathers a large amount of data on pricing. Their recent data shows the average price per hour for return trips, for various aircraft. As noted above, these rates can vary depending on when you fly, where you fly and if your flight is one way or return, plus landing fees, ramp fees and any repositioning can all add to the costs. Always ask for a fully inclusive quote from your broker or operator.
Would highly recommend anyone looking for charters to contact Stratos. Their team was second to none in handling our request from first call to post flight. The CEO was even kind enough to phone me to ensure that we had located our crew at the FBO just prior to departure. I have run multiple aircraft in flight departments for many years and can truly say that its hard to find this level of professionalism in the business.
WE were told to go to First Aviation Services terminal at Teterboro but our plane was at another terminal so we wasted over 45 minutes trying to find our aircraft and our agent was not at all helpful. In fact he told us someone was coming to pick us up and they never came and we had to find someone to help us get to the terminal our plane was located at. The agent asked us for our rental car info but when we landed in Naples the rental car was not at the terminal and we had to find a ride over to the other side of the air field to get our rental car. The flight was great but the handling of the pre and post flight were below normal and not what I am used to when I fly private.
Stratos was so easy to work with. Kerri was so understanding of a couple itinerary changes we had to make to ensure a safe, smooth flight. As our charter ops director, I sincerely appreciate when our customers realize that our decisions are in their best interest. Though not always ideal, we always provide our best option given uncontrollable variables such as weather, winds, etc. Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job.Any feedback you have would be greatly appreciated in return!
My experience with Stratos has been very good since I started booking jets several years ago. Joel and his team provide excellent service and followup at every stage. We recently had a flight where the incoming plane had a mechanical and they were able to replace it with a comparable one within just a few hours. Our original take off time was only missed by less than a half hour. The Stratos team communicated with us all along the way and everything was fine. The pilots are very good at what they do and the ground organization is thorough and efficient. I would recommend them to a friend.
Il n’en fut pas toujours ainsi. Pendant longtemps le secteur de l’aviation privée fut considéré comme limité et offrant peu d’options. À la fin du siècle dernier, l’aviation commerciale était celle qui regorgeait de nouvelles idées. Aujourd’hui, le marché des vols domestiques commerciaux aux Etats-Unis est écrasé par quelques poids lourds qui contrôlent plus de 80% du marché ; l’innovation provient maintenant du secteur privé de l’aviation.
Flight was for an elderly person and the tail number was provided a long time before the flight and I made sure the person flying had all the info written down by someone who could hear and got everything correct. Flyer had that until day before when tail number changed. I had to find someone who could hear me well and right down the correct info for the person traveling so he got it straight in his head and for driver.
Le cojetage, c’est pratique – surtout si vous volez depuis ou au départ de la Suisse. Le problème, c’est que vous ne trouvez pas forcément le vol qu’il vous faut à l’heure qu’il vous faut. Que faire si vous souhaitez voler régulièrement en jet privé et que vous n’avez pas les moyens (ou l’envie) de subir à vous tout seul le coût de l’appareil – comptez 2 millions d’euros pour un petit jet de 4 personnes sans compter l’entretien, les pilotes, les frais divers… ?
D’innombrables plateformes digitales ou applications de réservation tentent d’automatiser les services de courtage. Ces plateformes ont une connexion directe avec les opérateurs. Ils déjà donnent des prix estimés et offrent à grande échelle. Ainsi les prix sont souvent plus bas que chez courtiers. Le service personnel des courtiers est absent sur les plateformes digitales.
As the assistant who actually booked the trip and made the plans for my employer and her family, I must say that the experience was a new one for me. That said, the unfamiliar process was made much simpler thanks to the knowledge, expertise and patience of my rep, Christina Nesbit. She was extremely informative and helped thru each step of the process, reassuring me that the passengers were getting the most appropriate plane for their needs.I will double check to be sure there isn't any additional feedback I am missing, but to date I was told that the flight was a pleasurable one and they were appreciative and impressed that the President came to greet them pre flight as well.Thank you, Shari
Depending on who you believe 30-to-50% of all private jet flights are ferry flights. However, that doesn’t mean they are necessarily dirt cheap. Magellan Jets, which sells jet cards and on-demand charter also offers empty legs, and while you have to contact the company for pricing, it says rates start at $3,000 per hour. Airstream Jets enables visitors to its website to download a list of active empty legs and while most of the 13 listings were for the next two weeks, there were flights posted through mid-November, one an empty leg in September on a Gulfstream G-IVSP from New York to London for $49,900. Another broker quoted the same date and route at $92,000. Even more attractive was a G500 charter this weekend from Palermo, Italy to New York for $35,000. Quotes for a non-empty leg charter that I received from another broker for random dates in August started at $111,000.
Il n’est pas le dernier à parader, surtout depuis qu’il est champion d’Europe avec l’équipe du Portugal. Il paraitrait que son jet vaut 19 millions d’euros. Une peccadille pour notre star du ballon rond qui ne fait même pas bouger son brushing d’un pouce au moment de sortir le carnet de chèques. Car la vedette est coutumière du fait, lui qui a déjà une collection de voitures à faire pâlir de jalousie un patron du CAC40.
