    Renting a private plane in Colombia can be one of the most rewarding experiences in life, and even, as several of our clients claim, the best experience of their lives.

    The rental of a private plane has great advantages, saving time while emphasizing safety, comfort, and above all the experience of having an exclusive flight. Although it is an exclusive service, price wise there are several preconceptions that with the new faces of this business are no longer so true.

    How much does it really cost to rent a private plane? Can you quickly book your own ride using an Uber-style private aviation platform? Here, we tell you.

    The Minimum Cost of Renting a Private Jet in Colombia

    The cost of a private jet rental is a derivative of a number of factors, among which the most commonly used variables include:

    • The estimated cost per hour or per km / mile traveled;
    • The cost of airport landing fees;
    • Ground service costs or FBO (Fixed Base Operator) related to the management and use of the private jet terminal;
    • Overnight costs;
    • The minimum flight or travel fare.

    To get the value of 1 hour of flight, operators will normally calculate their fixed costs, plus the variables, and add a small additional margin. The cost per hour can range from $ 700 for a turboprop aircraft to $ 11,000 for large intercontinental aircraft.

    To calculate the cost of the flight, the operator will take into account the total number of flight hours that exist from the point of departure to the point of arrival, plus the costs of attention on the ground, taxes, gasoline, and if there are additional costs. There is also a minimum cost that will need to be considered.
