Set up of our standard private jet pricing
The operating costs or the cost to operate an aircraft generate the biggest chunck of private jet or air taxi costs. The operating costs exist out of 4 different elements:
- The cost per flying hour or lease costs,
- Landing/airport fees,
- Handling fees,
- Pilot fees.
Costs per aircraft flying hour or lease costs
The cost per flying hour or the lease costs constitute the biggest cost part of your air taxi flight. It is based on the agreements we make with our aircraft partners and covers a standard price per hour for fuel, maintenance and hangar costs. The longer the flight takes the higher the total cost will be.
Also included in the lease costs are the repositioning flight costs of your aircraft from its base to the location where you want to board the aircraft. If your flight returns within 2 days we leave the aircraft and crew on location. If we return after 2 days, the aircraft will conduct a double rotation as the aircraft returns to the base. It can happen that an aircraft repositioning flight is not necessary as it’s already based on the same location where you want to board.
Landing or airport fees
Next to the lease cost, private jet and air taxi companies also need to pay landingfees alloing them to depart or land at the origin or destination airport. The amount of these fees depend on the airport you want to land and includes landing, parking, passenger and airport security fees.
Bigger airports such as Amsterdam Schiphol and Paris Airport are more expensive in comparison to smaller airports like Breda or Joigny. This is one of the reasons why we mostly recommend to land at a smaller airports. The price ranges between the 0€ and 1000 €.

Our reservation system knows the fees of every airport where we can land and adds them automatically with the other costs once we make you an offer.
Every airport has its own regulations and own way to welcome the passenger after landing. Sending a shuttle for the passengers and their luggage or the usage of a private jet terminal comes at additional fees. These will be included in the price of your air taxi flight.
Whether handling is obligatory or not depends on the airport. Fly Aeolus’ reservation system takes these costs into account. Handling prices range between 50€ and 100€ per cycle.
