The cost of renting a private jet can vary widely depending on several factors, including the type of aircraft and the length of the trip.

Turboprop aircraft are generally the most cost-effective option, suitable for short trips and regional travel. Light jets offer a balance of speed, comfort, and cost, ideal for mid-range trips with a small group of passengers. Long-range jets provide the ultimate luxury experience, with spacious cabins and the ability to fly non-stop to destinations worldwide, but they come with a higher price tag.

Understanding the pricing differences between these aircraft types can help you make an informed decision based on your budget and travel requirements.

When chartering a private flight to or from Canada, the total cost will include several factors: the make/model and year of aircraft, the routing of the flight, aircraft availability, fuel prices, operational fees and taxes, plus any additional charges for de-icing, catering, Wi-Fi usage, pet cleaning fees, etc.

The most cost-effective plane will vary for each flight, and Jet Charter Canada provides access to every private plane available for your flight in Canada, The United States, Europe, Asia, and any destination around the world.

For example, if you’re booking a light jet that has an hourly rate of $4,000, and want to perform a 4 hour flight, the aircraft rental portion would account for $16,000 of the total charter price; after adding the cost for taxes, fuel, flight crew, operational fees, and other charges, the total charter cost may range between $28,000 and $37,500, with the cost determined based on aircraft, destination, and passenger totals.

Cost to Rent a Piston or Turboprop in Canada

Turboprops are a popular choice for charter flight in Canada, especially for private flights from Toronto to New York.

Many turboprops feature executive configurations and comfortable cabins, often at more affordable rates compared to business jets. They offer ranges of up to 1,500 nautical miles, speeds exceeding 300 mph, and seating for 6 to 8 passengers. Turboprops can also access shorter runways, expanding the number of available destinations for private flights within Canada and to Northern regions of the USA.

The cost to rent charter a turboprop in Canada ranges between $2,000 to $3,000 per hour.

Piston aircraft, offering slightly reduced capabilities and performance compared to turboprops, are available at even lower rates. These aircraft are ideal for short hops within Ontario and British Columbia, with seating for up to 3-4 passengers.

The cost to rent a single or twin-engine piston in Canada starts at around $1,500 an hour.

Cost to Rent a Light Jet in Canada

The Light Jet category includes Very Light, Light, and Super Light Jets, are some of the most frequently chartered planes for private flights to and from Canada.

Very Light Jets (VLJ), also referred to as entry-level or personal jets, are the smallest private jets available for charter, typically seating 4 passengers. Super light jets offer enhanced performance, range, and cabin space compared to standard light jets, with some models boasting a range of up to 1,800 nautical miles.

The cost to charter a light jet in Canada varies between $2,500 and $5,000 per hour, depending on the type of jet.

This category is best suited for individuals and small groups, with light jets offering superior performance and cabin amenities compared to most turboprops, and lower hourly rates than the midsize jets.

When renting a light jet, pricing for private flights from Toronto to Miami starts at around $18,000 for a one-way flight with 4 passengers and a 2 hour 40 minute flight time.

Cost to Rent a Midsize Jet in Canada

Midsize and super midsize jets provide greater cabin space and range compared to light jets, accommodating up to 8-11 passengers in standing-room cabins. They offer cross-country range, making them suitable for flights between all provinces of Canada or to tropical destinations of the Bahamas.

The price to charter a midsize/super midsize jet varies between $4,500 and $9,000 an hour, with some of the latest models carrying a premium due to their capabilities and limited availability.

Chartering a private flight from Toronto to Las Vegas starts at $55,000 each-way in a super midsize jet, with seating for up to 8 passengers and a 4 hour and 45 minute flight time.

Cost to Rent a Heavy or Long Range Jet in Canada

For international flights into and from Canada, heavy and long range jets offer the most range and largest cabins, making them ideal for executive groups, celebrities, and HNWI travelers.

Some of the most iconic private jets such as Gulfstream IV and Global Express are in the Heavy Jet category, with lush interiors that resemble luxury apartments more than an airplane, and seating for up to 14-18 passengers, depending on model and configuration.

While Heavy Jets are ideal for cross country and transcontinental trips, Long Range Jets connect you to destinations like London, Paris, Johannesburg, Tokyo, and Sydney, with even more luxurious cabin offering accommodations for up to 18 passengers.

The cost to charter a long range jet from Canada for international flights will often exceed $100,000 each way, with rates averaging between $15,000-$18,000 an hour, with some models carrying hourly rates of more than $20,000.
