What does the price for a private jet trip include?

The price of renting a private plane or a private jet can be broken down into 2 parts:

  1. Bare boat aircraft chartering
  2. The piloting service of the professional pilot or crew (commonly known as the cabin crew or PNT)

The estimated price of a trip in a private aircraft may vary according to the following factors:

  • The model of the aircraft selected (the rental rate will not be the same depending on whether you choose a 4-seat turboprop or a 9-seat private jet)
  • The distance of its transport (The platform’s aircraft are distributed between more than 90 airports/airfields, which sometimes involves transport time to the place of departure. The longer the journey, the greater the impact on the aircraft rental rate)
  • The length of the flight
  • Variations in the cost of fuel
  • Airport taxes (variable depending on the airport)
  • Overnight accommodation for the pilot if the rental is spread over several days (this is why a one-day round trip is cheaper than a three-day round trip)

OpenFly was born from the desire to save time for company directors and their teams. Simplifying travel, helping people to meet, facilitating business exchanges, opening up isolated territories: this is the primary ambition of our company. Since 2017, the OpenFly portal has been connecting professionals and private aircraft owners/airlines/professional pilots, so that they can organise their business trips by themselves with complete flexibility. The portal acts as a marketplace and lists more than 250 aircraft: planes, private jets, helicopters, etc. with 2 to 8 seats. The rental offer proposed by OpenFly is exhaustive and accessible..

To achieve this, we have endeavoured to make private aviation, a mode of transport that combines numerous advantages such as speed, flexibility, safety and meeting the travel needs of professionals, accessible to the greatest number. The services offered on the OpenFly portal are priced lower than most of the traditional business aviation players. On OpenFly, you can rent private aircraft from airlines but also aircraft belonging to private owners who have decided to make them available for rental.

The OpenFly marketplace brings together the best rates for renting jets and private aircraft.
