If you would like to know more about how our Air Taxi concept works or if you’re not sure whether it’s worth to charter a private jet?

Private jet customers fly with a private jet to many different cities which are among the most popular summer destinations in Europe are Ibiza or Nice. To avoid security and check-in queues at major airports, the private jet is a great solution. With an air taxi, you can choose your own departure point, destination and departure time. You can also stay one night or the whole week.

Also in winter, commercial airlines are not providing direct connections to these destinations. A private jet or air taxi therefore becomes the perfect solution.

Private flights to Ibiza Airport

Ibiza Airport is the international airport serving the Balearic Islands of Ibiza and Formentera in Spain. It is located 7 km southwest of Ibiza Town. The airport has multiple private jet terminals allowing you to arrive 15 minutes before departure to your private jet.

What are the opening times of the Ibiza Private Jet Terminal?

In summer the airport is opened 24 hours a day. In winter there are different opening times. From November 1st until June 21st the airport is opened from 06:30 to 23:00.

We recommend you to book your private flight to Ibiza in summer as early as possible. In the high season private jet parking spots at the airport are limited due to the high amount of private jet arrivals. Some private jet companies even park their jets at Ibiza for the summer time due to the high demand for private jet travel.
If you choose to fly with a private jet into Ibiza the summer months, expect higher charges for repositioning the aircraft and park it at another airport.

What to do at Ibiza?

You cannot leave Ibiza without having joined a DJ party. You will find the coolest beachclubs of Ibiza at the “Playa de Ses Salines”, “Pikes hotel” or the “Playa d’en Bossa” with the “Ushuaïa beach hotel”.
