Icarus Jet has launched an all inclusive international trip support package for midsize private aircraft starting at $499 per leg, aimed at private jets with a maximum take off weight of 16,631 to 47,999 lb. The package includes guaranteed parking, permits and discounted fuel prices.

This offer comes just a few months after the company successfully launched its initial $99 per leg trip support package for light private aircraft, aimed at international routes operated by small private jets of less than 16,630 lbs MTOW.

“With transatlantic flights hitting all time highs, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to launch our second trip support package this year. We are also seeing private and corporate flight departments increase demand towards the end of year and early 2023, a strong development that supports the need for an all inclusive and tailored international trip support package,” says founder and president Kevin Singh.

The Icarus Jet package offers flight coordination, planning and tracking, crew service, ground handling, overflight and landing permits. Furthermore, there is no mark-up on handling fees, guaranteed, and there is access to a global network of parking locations for aircraft of all sizes in almost any airport in the world as well as highly competitive fuel prices to allow clients save between three and seven per cent in fees annually.

“As a part of our trip support procedure, we always certify that a flight is within the regulations and that the aircraft, crew and passengers are safely allowed to operate in a specific airport. Our team of dedicated professionals ensures that the aircraft can handle the performance requirements of the airport, runway specifications, weather conditions, while also confirming that rescue and fire-fighting services are available and well equipped for the aircraft, among other variables,” says managing director of trip support Mark Daroy.

In early 2023, Icarus Jet plans a customisable international trip support package for heavy jets with a MTOW of 48,000 to 100,000 lbs, with the aim of supplying the increasing global demand for long range transatlantic flights by pilots, owners and corporate flight departments.
