The Minimum Cost To Charter a Private Jet in Medellín
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 usually calculate their fixed costs, plus the variables and added a small additional margin. In Medellín, the cost per flight hour can vary from US $ 700 – US $ 800 for a turboprop aircraft, such as Caravan Grand, to US $ 4,400 – US $ 6,000 in the case of super midsize private jets. Ultra-long-range jets (rented from abroad), such as the Global or Gulfstream G550, cost even more, with hourly flight rates from $ 7,000 – $ 11,000.
To calculate the total cost of the flight, we 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 possible additional costs. There is also a minimum cost that will need to be considered.
