Though prices are off their lows, charter remains a value. According to SkyNet Aviation Group, Global Private Aviation Director, Adam K. Hasiak “The average hourly charter cost of a midsize Hawker 800XP in North America was recently $3,600, while a sampling of jet cards priced the same or similar jets from $5,700 to $7,900 per hour, plus fuel charges. And while card and fractional programs offer up to four categories of jets, the SkyNet Aviation Group charter fleet has everything from single-engine prop airplanes for fishing trips to executive-configured airliners used by royal families and professional sport teams.”
Hasiak states, “If you fly less than 50 hours per year, need multiple or specialized aircraft types, or have a fractional share or jet card but want the option of using the most economical solution for each flight, you’re a charter candidate for SkyNet Aviation.” Charter has long been considered most cost-effective for roundtrips, as operators charge flyers for the outbound and inbound legs, as well as any positioning fees for ferrying the airplane to them. But as noted above, SkyNet Aviation Group is able to offer one-way or point-to-point fares, changing the dynamic and expanding the envelope of economically justifiable private jet charter.
Also, for critical “gas up the jet now” missions, SkyNet Aviation Group charters often represent the “best solution short of having your own jet and crew on standby.” SkyNet Aviation Group can usually have you in the air before a jet card or fractional share can.
Hasiak mentions, “Your charter provider is the key to the quality of your flight experience, so locate yours before you need to book a trip. I have clients calling me months out from a trip, because they want to make sure they are having each and every option available to them. It truly makes me happy when you exceed client’s expectations. In my former profession as a government lobbyist, I took a different approach with each politician, I use this approach with my charter clients, knowing each and every one has different expectations and ways they like to be taken care of.”
Think about your charter needs in terms of mission rather than aircraft type. Tell a good charter provider what you’re trying to accomplish, and it should be able to suggest a range of aircraft that meet your goals, while giving you wide choice in style and price.
