Private jets come in an array of sizes and pricing options. The average small-size jet will carry between five and eight people while a large-size plane or heavy jet can hold between 10 and 18 passengers.
Prices also will vary according to the size, costing anywhere from $2,500 a flight hour for small-size jets to $4,500 per flight hour for large-size jets.
Mid-size executive jets, which are arguably the most popular according to usage, can hold between eight and 14 passengers.
While it is rare for private charters to be asked for planes carrying more than 18 passengers, some carry a turbo-prop plane in their fleet that can hold between 30 and 45 passengers
