Private Jet Card Comparisons adds fuel calculator component
A new online fuel calculator tool lets users review hourly fuel burn for dozens of private jets and turboprops, and quickly calculates the hourly fuel cost and estimated surcharge with current fuel prices.

Private Jet Card Comparisons, the buyer's guide to private aviation programmes, has added a jet fuel cost and surcharge calculator free for visitors to its website.

The online tool lets users review hourly fuel burn for dozens of popular private jets and turboprops, and quickly calculates 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 programmes. 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,” says founder and editor-in-chief Doug Gollan. “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 surcharges by simply putting a per gallon fuel cost in the calculator and selecting up to five aircraft types.

The estimated surcharge is based on a base price of $2.00 per gallon.
