Why Do Charter Quotes Vary so Much?

Many variables are juggled when it comes to pricing for each charter flight. Chartering a plane is a bit more complicated than simply renting a car for the weekend. Sure, most charter companies have the ability to easily provide you a charter price from their website, but there is more that comes into play than simply calculating a quote. Working with the right aviation professional is vital in obtaining the most value on the best aircraft for your needs.

Here are a few variables that determine your final quotes:

  • Flight Itinerary – The dates you travel on, your airports of departure & arrival, and any stops on the way creating a multiple leg flight can vary the price quote. Prices also increase during peak travel dates.
  • Aircraft Type- The length of your trip, the amount of passengers or luggage, could change what type of plane is required.
  • Aircraft Amenities– Special requested amenities such as Wifi, custom catering, or flight attendant can also vary your quote.
  • Fuel Prices– This factor changes daily and varies between airports.
  • Additional Fees– These are fees such as cleaning fee for soiled planes or de-icing during cold and snowy months.
