A guide to private jet charters to New York


New York is famous for its acclaimed museums, world-class dining, designer shopping and buzzing nightlife. The “City that Never Sleeps” is also an important commercial and financial center, so no wonder it’s a private aviation hub. A dozen New York airports – many of them central – can be accessed by private jet.

Conveniently located just 12 miles from Manhattan, Teterboro is the most popular airport for private jet charters to New York. Alternatively, Westchester County Airport is further from the city (33 miles from Manhattan) but convenient if you’re traveling to the business district of White Plains, Westchester County, New York or Fairfield County, Connecticut. The city’s major international airports, Newark, La Guardia and JFK, also regularly accommodate private jets. Other options include Farmingdale, Long Island Macarthur Airport and Downtown Manhattan Wall Street Airport.

ACS has compiled a list of the most popular charter flights from New York and back, so you can start planning your next journey today.

Miami is just a three-hour hop from New York, making it the perfect choice for a dose of weekend sun. Private charters from Teterboro New York typically land at Palm Beach International Airport, which is just three miles from the beach. Private flights from New York to Palm Beach in a light jet such as the Hawker Beechcraft 400 cost from $19,700. Or if you are traveling to Miami with friends and family, you might prefer to charter a luxurious 14-seater turboprop like the Cessna 208 Grand Caravan, which costs from $10,900.

Chicago

Whether you’re a culture-lover, a technophile or a sports fanatic, America’s “Second City” has something for everyone. Located close to downtown, Chicago Midway International Airport is quieter and more convenient than Chicago O’Hare International, the world’s sixth busiest airport. The journey from New York to Midway takes just over two hours in a light jet such as the Embraer Phenom 100, which can seat up to four people and costs from $16,600. Or for more space, charter a mid-sized jet such as the nine-seater Dassault Falcon, which costs from $21,200.

Beautiful San Francisco is the cultural, commercial and financial heart of northern California.

The flight takes just over six hours and costs from $23,100 in a light Cessna Citation II, which can seat up to eight passengers.
