How much is an air charter delivery?

To know the price of an air charter delivery, many parameters must be taken in consideration:

  • Flight distance (pickup and delivery places)
  • Flight availability
  • Mission complexity (delivery time, shipment nature)
  • Quantity to deliver (weight & dimensions, number of packages)

For a load of less than 2 tons, consider a budget around €10,000 and €15,000. For more capacity, budget around €30,000 and €35,000. For an exact price and a tailor-made solution, contact us or fill out our online quotation form.
