Private Jet to Greece Costs
Chartering a private jet or a helicopter out of Athens International airport has never been easier. With multiple options of private flights with at least 20 helicopters and 15 plus private jets based at the national airport, this seasonal charter service gets very busy during May till October, with June till August being the peak season. Icarus helicopter service also offers empty legs, especially to Mykonos (airport LGMK) and Santorini, Greece.

Private Jet Charter available in Athens
Icarus Jet charter has been present in Athens, Greece, since 2011, and we have curated private jets for hire around the Cyclades Islands of Mykonos airport and Santorini airport. Serving the blue of the Aegean sea and its white villas that dot the hills of these beautiful islands has been a rare opportunity for us. The topography of the Greek islands requires helicopter pilots to understand the weather conditions (gusting winds around the islands) and prepare for safe operations of their helicopters. Besides curating the helicopter flights from Athens, we also have access to private jet flights with Cabin sizes from Very Light Jets, Light Jets, Mid-size, Super-Midsize, and Heavy Jets. Athens International airport is one of the busiest airports in the European Union during the summer times. The international traffic is overwhelming, that the aircraft have to obtain a landing slot for their arrivals and departures. This causes many passengers to miss their connecting flights to the islands of Mykonos and Santorini Thira. The slots issues carry over to the rest of the Cyclades, where the overnight parking for private aircraft is limited. Most of them are asked to reposition to Turkey or airports neighboring Bulgaria and Greece. These added issues with overnight parking result in increased cost of operation for private jets. At Icarus Jet charter, we recommend that after the passengers disembark in Athens from their International flights, they charter a much easier, luxurious, and equally safer helicopter than the airlines. One can arrive fresh at their hotels and villas In Mykonos or Santorini and not lose their luggage in transit. All our private helicopter charter and jet charter trips include ground transportation and airport pick-up from Athens International airport.
Private Jets and Helicopters From Athens
If you are ever in need of a last-minute private aircraft from Athens, Icarus Jet can curate a one-of-a-kind experience within 2 hours of the call out. Please call our direct number at (972) 364-1833, and we will make sure that a suitable airplane is ready for you. However, a helicopter charter from Athens is highly recommended. A private jet charter is the only option because of the number of passengers and their luggage, which imposes performance limitations on a helicopter. For example, a Lear 35 can carry 6 passengers and their luggage from Athens to Mykonos with no performance restrictions, and it can operate 24 hours with no night time restrictions. Helicopters, on the other hand, are not only restricted to the sunrise-sunset operation, but they’re also limited to weight limitations per passengers and their luggage dimensions and weight. If you are traveling with 4 passengers with four large suitcases and carryons and are confident that your international arrival will be within the daytime operating hours of Greece, then we highly recommend that you charter a helicopter around the Cyclades island. Please visit our Jet Charter Mykonos and Jet Charter Santorini pages for more information.
