Then think again! It all comes down to the five W’s – Who, What, Where, When and Why?
A light jet that seats between four – six people can be hired for between £1,500 – £3,000 per hour plus landing and handling fees. When you divide the total price between the number of passengers, the cost is very doable!
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost very much comes down to your specific requirements. The five W’s – Who, What, Where, When and Why?
Who will be flying – just you, your small executive team, a small group of Customers/Clients, large groups or family and friends?
What is the purpose of your flight? To get from A to B more quickly and efficiently, to conduct business meetings inflight, to attend multiple business sites, to take your family on holiday?
Short hops over to Europe, Intercontinental or Long Haul/Transatlantic flights?
What time of year are you travelling? Will you have to factor de-icing costs? Airport holiday surcharges, Early/Late or Arrival/Departure surcharges?
To minimise the risk of contracting Covid19 by avoiding passenger transit lounges and commercial airlines, to utilise smaller airports and avoid major hubs, or simply to have the flexibility in your travel schedule?
By breaking down the Who, What, Where, When and Why Flyconnex can determine the most cost-effective solution. Most of their clients fluctuate between using Very Light jets (VLJ) through to Midsize jets. Unless you are in the know about private jet travel, you are probably not aware of just how cost effective this mode of travel can be.
