    Cost of Renting a Jet in Mexico

    The cost of a private jet charter is determined by the following factors:

    • Cost per flight hour;
    • Airport landing fees;
    • FBO (VIP terminal);
    • Overflight charges;
    • Overnight stay costs;
    • Others, inc. in-flight catering or Wi-fi.

    In Mexico, the air carriers would additionally distiguish between a ferry flight fee (empty leg) and full flight fee (with passengers on board). A 4% tax rate is applicable to all charter flights in Mexico.

    The operator figures out their full charter rate utilizing a quotation system, such as Flapper. Great savings can be found on long-haul flights, and quotes for shorter flights (under 2000 km) are often substituted with a minimum trip fee. An hourly cost might vary from $1.600 – $2.200 for a turbo-prop, such as King Air to even $11.000 – $17.000 for a luxurious ultra-long large jets. The margins are small and vary from 5% to 15% for last-minute requests.
