With first class commercial airline prices at an all time high, G6 AVIATION reveals how it is actually more cost effective to charter a private jet to New York, when travelling as a group with family or colleagues.

New York is one of our most requested transatlantic private charter routes, and it fully delivers on its as reputation as the 'The City That Never Sleeps' with its amazing attractions and vibrant night life.

From November 8th, fully vaccinated passengers from the UK and Europe will be able to fly to the US, and, with access to over 3,500 private aircraft there's never been a better time to charter a jet to get you there in superior comfort.

How much is British Airways First Class one-way to New York?

At time of writing, a British Airways First Class seat from London Heathrow to JFK is £9,457, (based upon departing Monday 8th November 2021) therefore, the total cost of a group of 8 would be £75,656.

Although BA will provide fast track security clearance through Heathrow T5, and access to private lounges, First Class passengers are still required to check-in at least one hour before departure, and if you are running late don't expect the aircraft to wait for you!

If you normally fly first class with a commercial airline, standby, you are going to be pleasantly surprised about the cost of private jet chartering!

How much does it cost to charter a private jet from London to New York?

The flight time between London and New York is approximately 8 hours depending on the type of private aircraft chartered, and, of course, the jet streams.

For this comparison we have selected a Legacy 650 from one of our recommended operators.

The Legacy 650 is a highly advanced long range jet, offering largest-in-class cabin, galley and luggage capacity, great for larger groups to dine or rest in comfort. It boasts a state-of-the-art sound system, premium berthing seats and impressive low cabin noise, ensuring it attends to all of your needs.

One of the main advantages of private jet charter is that as the client, YOU decide the time of departure to fit around your schedule. Purpose-built private terminals allow complete privacy and a quick transition from arrival to boarding your aircraft. Special arrangements can also be made for your driver to access the apron directly, thus avoiding terminal buildings to allow for swift boarding.

Each passenger's personal dietary preferences will be catered for, and a bespoke menu will be created for the flight. Of course this includes an open bar too. Your dedicated Flight Attendant will provide outstanding service during your flight.

This aircraft is pet friendly, so your dog (or cat) does not need to be left behind, and can travel with you in the cabin, as long as their pet passport and vaccines are up to date.
