When it comes to chartering a private jet, knowing the intricacies of cost can save you a significant sum. But what variables should you consider? This blog delves into how different seasons and geographical locations can impact your private jet charter costs
The Role of Seasons in Private Jet Charter Costs
High Season vs Low Season
Demand skyrockets during high seasons such as summer vacations and major holidays, driving up the cost of chartering. Conversely, during low seasons like late winter and early spring, you’ll find more economical options.
Winter months can sometimes present operational challenges, such as de-icing and longer taxi times, which in turn can increase costs.
