Experience the ultimate in comfort and convenience on your next Europe Trip
If you are thinking of planning your next trip overseas, consider chartering a private jet to start and finish your trip on the right foot! Providing the highest standard of comfort, customization, and convenience, a private charter allows you to create a memorable and luxurious travel experience.
Advantages of Flying Private
Chartering a private jet is a great option for those looking to maximize flexibility, control, and enjoyment for their Europe trip. Some of the most notable benefits of flying private include:
Convenience. Create a flight itinerary that is most convenient for you by pre-selecting take-off times and end destinations.
Optimal Comfort & Efficiency. With spacious cabins and flatbeds, you can arrive at your destination rested and ready to go! Plus, flying into private airports minimizes wait times once you arrive at your destination.
Stringent Safety Measures. Private charters go through rigorous checks before taking off, and international flights are always audited by ARGUS and Wyvern for safety. In fact, private charters are said to be a safer option than commercial flights!
Popular Routes & Destinations
Another great advantage of chartering a private aircraft is that private jets have access to 10x as many airports in Europe than commercial airlines. This access provides you and your guests with even more destination flexibility and the opportunity to reduce ground transfer and direct routing by flying into smaller, local airports.
Currently, some of the most popular routes for private jets flying from the U.S. to Europe are:
New York to London, 7 hours 10 minutes
Miami to London, 8 hours 30 minutes
New York to Paris, 7 hours 10 minutes
Dallas to Madrid, 9 hours 20 minutes
Los Angeles to Geneva, 10 hours 50 minutes
New York to Nice, 8 hours 5 minutes
With a private charter, you can fly anywhere you like and avoid layovers, long wait times, and the risk of lost baggage.
Choosing The Best Aircraft
Depending on the size of your party and the amount of desired space on the aircraft, there are a few different categories of private jets suitable for transatlantic destinations.
Although the most compact aircraft for transatlantic flights, Mid-Sized Jets do not compromise on luxury and offer stylish interiors and added amenities.

Seating for 10-11 passengers
Range of 3,500 miles

Pricing Structure for Private Jets
Two main cost components dictate the price of a private charter: hourly rates and additional fees.
The hourly rate depends upon which aircraft you select. The average hourly rates by aircraft before any additional fees are:
Mid-Size Jets, $4,000USD / hour
Super Midsize Jets, $5,000USD / hour
Heavy Jet, $6,000USD / hour
Ultra Long Range Jet, $8,000USD / hour
Additional Fees include:
Airport Charges – Includes landing and handling fees which will vary depending on your aircraft and the airport.
Fuel Surcharges – Depends upon your aircraft, the distance traveled, and the current cost of fuel.
Positioning Fees – If your aircraft is not already located at your airport of choice, you may be charged a repositioning fee.
Crew Expenses – May include per diems, meals, and hotel costs if applicable.
Taxes – International flights may be subject to VAT or Goods and Service Taxes.
Private jets charter for peak traveling seasons, or on major holidays and sporting events may experience surcharges due to increased demand.
Opportunity with Empty Leg
An empty leg is a one-way flight taken by an aircraft when it has no passengers. This type of flight often occurs when a private jet returns or repositions itself for its next client.
Discounts up to 75% are usually available on empty leg trips at short notice. For flyers with flexible schedules or first-time clients, discounted empty leg trips are a great opportunity to experience private flying at a more affordable price point.
