Why Chartering a Private Jet isn’t as Expensive as you Might Think

Estimated reading time: 2 mins

Private jets are among the flashiest aircraft out there. Built to cut tedious corners of the travel experience, the luxury vehicles come with a cost that isn’t as behemoth sized as most might assume. While they are certainly emblematic of rewards and riches, the private jet is increasingly becoming more affordable and accessible in unison. There’s no way around it – air travel is being redefined.

It sounds absurd, but chartering a private jet can fit within many household budgets if the bookers go about things the right way. Using the right companies and the correct arrangements all factor in to the final cost, which can be much lower than many would anticipate. For once, it pays to have more sense than money, and often the same rewards can be reaped in result!

Splitting Costs

On the surface, private jet chartering can seem like an unachievable dream, a fantasy that’s just out of arms reach. There’s too many zeroes tacked on to the price, and it could likely only be affordable by not eating for a few months. After all the calculations and daydreams, it’s probably not worth it in the end, right?

However, this thought process isn’t entirely watertight. By travelling alone, the expense can be expected to tally up high, but with a few budding companies in for the ride the cost can be cut quite cleanly. Ultimately, with a few friends tagging along, that hefty prices can be whittled away to a few thousand pounds each, just like any other holiday!

Tactical Timing

Every holiday season, the flight industry undoubtedly experiences a boom. Whether with their families or best buddies, people want to spend their limited time off flying all over the world with their loved ones. It’s understandable, but not entirely cost-efficient when booking flights around this time.

Unavoidably, the time of year effects the costs majorly, with some private jets cheaper on a February half term than to book a flight with BA, a baffling prospect. Still, it pays to be strategic with any sort of large scale investment, so chartering a private jet in a quieter period will likely afford a lucky discount.

Empty Legs Flights

Planes can be packed, with the aisles filled with all kinds of irritating factors; snorers, loud talkers, loud coughers, even just people breathing noisily. The long-haul flights are the worst, testing the patients of all buckled up to endure a few hours of pure, punishing hell.

However, empty legs flights are a great workaround. No matter how far around the world they go, sooner or later a jet must call in at home just like everyone else. When this time comes, flights fill seats with the empty legs scheme, which allows discounted flights in this situation for a one-way trip! Ultimately, it’s cheeky and exciting, bypassing the faff all others will endure!
