Depends on cost, location, size of aircraft, capablities of aircraft, where you are flying it to, if it is a one-way or round-trip and crew requirements.

Usually for a large aircraft, you probably would be looking at upwards of $5000-55000 and hour, plus other costs.

If you look at smaller jets, you can lease a Hawker 800 for $2245 and hour, plus crew costs (if the crew needs to stay overnight) and repositioning costs.

I was thinking more along the lines of a 727/737 size and flys around 5 to 6 hours a day round trip in the US.

Depending on utilisation, route, etc an L1011 will cost between US$7,500 and US$10,000 per hour.

The L-1011 was about $33,000 per hour. I put in a request for a charter with 300 passengers to leave Houston IAH on May 13 and fly to Melbourne, FL and return on May 17. The total cost was quoted at $165,272 USD, plus tax, or $551 per passenger.
