The following information offers charter flight cost estimates for popular routes based on aircraft classes.

Charter Flight Pricing: How we save you money!

Aircraft Choice: Our professional flight advisors are experienced in analyzing the flight capabilities of individual aircraft to offer you the best private aircraft option for each of your flight itineraries. If the flight time of your requested aircraft is increased due to the aircraft’s operational capabilities and we are aware that an alternate type or class of aircraft will be more cost-effective for your requested itinerary, we will automatically present the additional option(s) for your review.

Type of flight: For each itinerary, we will analyze whether the itinerary will be most cost-effective as a one-way, round trip, or drop-off and pick-up based on flight time, duration of trip, aircraft availability, and more.

Alternate Airports: Our professional team will help you determine the airport closest to your final destination; however, if we determine there is an alternate airport that doesn’t create an inconvenience for the passengers but is significantly more cost-effective, we will recommend the alternate. Variables such as landing fees, ramp fees, fuel costs, etc… vary from airport to airport. It is our responsibility to be aware of how these cost affect you, our client; our priority!

Catering: Your flight itinerary will review multiple options for in-flight catering that may include traditional in-flight catering companies (most expensive) and alternate options such as food delivery services like Uber Eats, Postmates, Grub Hub and more!


What Exquisite Air Charter WILL NOT do:

Exquisite Air Charter is honest about charter flight pricing. Here is what we will not do:

Post-Flight Billing: Exquisite Air Charter is not going to surprise you with enormous post-flight bills for standard charter flight costs. Typically, the only post-flight billing is for special catering that you request, ground transportation we arrange on your behalf, de-icing should it become necessary, and/or billable changes to your itinerary.

Lie About Costs: It seems to be becoming more common for charter companies to market private charter flights as being comparable in price to business class airline fares. Some even suggest it might be lower than coach on some routes. This type of marketing is most offen deceitful. The DOCs (direct operating costs) of a flight make it very difficult to compare with commercial flight pricing. Further, when a private charter cost is significantly reduced, how is this achieved? Most likely by cutting costs that compromise safety. Exquisite Air Charter will never compromise safety for price.

Compromise Safety for Cost: Exquisite Air Charter is committed to passengers and flight safety. The operators and aircraft we work with are very carefully chosen with safety being our top priority. Price never comes before safety.
