The online tool lets users review hourly fuel burn for dozens of popular private jets and turboprops. They can quickly calculate each aircraft type’s hourly fuel cost and estimated surcharge with current fuel prices.
“For our subscribers and website visitors, many of them are chartering private aircraft on-demand or are members of various jet card programs. With fuel prices spiking and providers implementing fuel surcharges, they have been asking about how much fuel costs for the aircraft they are flying in and what type of surcharges to expect,” said Doug Gollan Founder, and Editor-in-Chief of Private Jet Card Comparisons. “Our calculator enables website visitors to compare estimated fuel costs in seconds.”
The online calculator uses JSSI Conklin & de Decker data, covering fuel consumption for over 50 private jet types. It includes links to IATA’s fuel monitor and AirNav, where visitors can find current fuel prices for their local airport.
Users can compare hourly fuel costs and estimated fuel surcharge. They simply put a per gallon fuel cost in the calculator and select up to five aircraft types.
The estimated surcharge is based on a base price of $2.00 per gallon.
