How Much Does It Cost To Charter A W/B?

Sat Dec 24, 2011 3:36 pm

I was wondering, if any body her ever charter a plane, more so a wide body? If so, how much does it cost to charter such a large jet? I know sport teams and the US military does it all the time.

Depends on the route and how long the aircraft will be sitting around for unused. We chartered a BA 747 to go BHX-MIA return and it was in the hundreds of thousands (£) IIRC.

Don't forget every day its sitting around waiting for the return flight its not earning money so the airline want to make that money back too.
Next flight: Feb 2012 - BHX-CPH-BHX - SK MD87 / CRJ900

Very much variable on factors like trip length, origin/destination, aircraft type etc... Even if you want a one way you may end up paying for a return if the aircraft has to fly back empty.

I chartered a Cargolux 744F PIK to SYD back in June and the price was well north of USD 500k.

Cheers from Brisbane,

Here's an article about Delta and their charter operation.

A line from the article said a widebody military charter to Afghanistan was $1.3 mil.
