How to charter a private jet?

If you want to charter a private jet to/from Velana International Airport, you need to submit an application by phone or e-mail.

Please indicate the following information in the application:

  • The final destination. Based on it, the operator will choose the nearest airport and business jets that can land there;
  • The number of passengers. We offer jets with a spacious cabin and luggage compartment for long-range flight;
  • The purpose of the trip. We need to know this information in order to choose the jet with the right equipment. For example, if you travel for work, we will offer you the jets with satellite communication and a working area;
  • Desired departure date.

 

Based on these data, the air broker chooses a few jets (usually, 3-4 options) and sends you an offer in the form of a presentation with the photos and calculation of the flight price. Once you’ve made a choice, we will draw up a contract with all information about the flight organization. Each customer is assigned a personal aviation consultant who will monitor all stages of flight preparation. You can contact him/her 24/7 if you need to change your departure date, route, or solve the document problems.

Cost of a private jet to Velana airport

The price of a private jet charter is calculated based on:

  • Type of flight. Very light jets cost about 10000 $ per hour, while the price of mid-size jets starts from 20000 $ per hour;
  • Flight range. However, short-haul flights cost almost the same as long-haul flights. This is related to the features of the use of the airspace and jets;
  • A number of passengers. Each passenger involves additional costs for meals and terminal service;
  • Duration of parking at the airport. Some customers charter a jet for one-way flights, while others rent a jet for a term of 2-3 days to several weeks. Thus, the longer the jet stays at the airport, the more you’ll have to pay for its maintenance;

 

The price of the charter includes additional services. “Private Jets” is ready to arrange catering and transfer, select and book accommodation and rent a yacht or a jet. You should discuss all services with the personal aviation consultant before signing the contract.

History of the airport

Hulhulé Airport was opened on 19 October 1960. It is located on Hulhulé Island, nearby the capital island Malé. The first runway built on Hulhulé Island was made of slotted steel sheets (it was about 900 m long). In 1966, it was upgraded to a new and improved asphalt runway.

The airport received its new name (Male International Airport) in 1981. In July 2011, it was officially renamed as the Ibrahim Nasir International Airport in memory of Ibrahim Nasir, 2nd President of Maldives. In 2017, the airport was rebranded as Velana International Airport, referring to the family house name of President Ibrahim Nasir.

The large-scale reconstruction of the airport started in 2014. In 2018, another 2.500 m-long runway was opened. And in July 2019, a new apron was put into operation with three E MARS stands, one C stand and two E stands. The new seaplane terminal in November 2019. The construction of the new passenger terminal with a capacity of 7 million people, is scheduled to be completed by mid-2022.

The airport currently has two runways (3.200 and 3.500-meter-long) that occupy almost the whole island. The adjacent seaplane base has four runways for servicing seaplanes. Apart from the international terminal, the airport has a domestic and a seaplane terminal.
