Ways to travel by private jet
Unless you’re super-rich, for most buying your own private jet would be way too expensive. Not only do you have to spend millions on the jet, but maintenance costs and staff will also add over $500k annual costs.

You could think about fractional ownership- where multiple people own a share of a private jet. You have a set amount of flying hours a year where the jet belongs to you. This is a good idea for very frequent flyers, but most people are not going to use a private jet that often.

So our favourite way of using a private jet is a private jet charter. A private jet charter is basically where you rent a private jet for a flight. It is significantly cheaper than the other options and more convenient- you only book the flight when you actually need it. 

Private jet charters are not very expensive when compared to buying or owning a share of a private jet, so they’re great value for the service they provide. Costs vary for each company and plane. A private jet charter flights cost is around €2000 for an hour of flight. Longer flights may be more expensive for example, an 8-hour flight is around €30,000.

Private jet charter costs can depend on lots of things like the size and type of jet. If you’re looking for the most luxurious plane, of course, it’s going to be more expensive.
