Hi gang,

I tried doing some internet research on this but to no avail. Does anyone have an idea of how much it would cost to charter an Embraer 145 or CRJ for a flight of approximatley 500-700 miles one way. I'm interested in the context or sports/college basketball charters and the difference in flying commerical as opposed to chartering an Express Jet or Com Air.

It seems for college basketball most that charter either use USA Jet, Delta Connection, or Expressjet.

Thanks in advance.

should be doable starting from 8000 USD, but it really depends on from where to where, it might double if they have to ferry it say 1000 miles to the place of departure and then 1500 miles back to the operator's base. Best to contact the airlines you mention, Miami Air, Allegiant, Ryan International etc for a global quotation


nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

One thing to factor in is that schedule airline routes would seldom be a direct flight between two cities. A 500-700 mile direct trip will often involve a 500-1,000 mile trip to a hub airport and a connecting flight of 700-1,000 miles to the destination.

Plus on a charter - the bags are not subject to transfer at a hub. A big deal if the team uniforms miss the connection.

If you want to rent a FedEx A310 to fly some freight around a MEM-AUS-YYZ-MEM trip will cost you in the neighborhood of $150,000.

   Many college towns are not well served by scheduled carriers. Getting to places like Gainesville or Bloomington IN from the other side of the country is not the simplest exercise.

Their aircraft are rather large for use by a basketball team. They are the right size for a college football team though.

Speaking of - wonder what Auburn paid Delta to use that 747 to get to the national championship game. Another one of those 'too much plane' for the team types?

Probably about as much as it cost them to get Cam Newton. Either way, I think that the bowl pays for it rather than the university.

Actually that might not be the case. First, they may have the band and cheerleaders with them, but even if they don't they could still use the plane. Football teams are generally rather large and they are probably taking quite a few extra guys and equipment on the trip plus their corps of coaches, managers, trainers, etc. Plus, they probably allow some boosters to come along for the ride too.

Not too much plane as Wisconsin took two 747s to the Rose Bowl...one for the team the other for the band and bunch of WBs for the fans.

A NCAA football team has roughly 90 players at any given point, plus coaches, trainers.... then through in the Athletic director, his/her staff, plus the college President and a few upper crust admins, all their spouses/mistresses maybe a couple of donors or two..... Typically all of this is paid out of the money the school receives from the bowl itself.

The NCAA clearly disagrees with your conclusion. And, unlike you, they had all of the facts.

In this case, the Auburn 747 carried the football team, cheerleaders, trainers, coaches, coaches' wives, athletic department staff, and university administrators. The Auburn band has 380 members and will travel on a separate plane. The boosters will, likewise, travel on separate planes. The alumni association has chartered a number of planes that will travel from Mobile, Montgomery, Birmingham, Huntsville, and Atlanta to Phoenix. The boosters will travel on those planes as well as on regularly scheduled airline flights.
