We do not pricing on individual seats – when you charter an aircraft with evoJets, the entire plane is yours and you may use as many of the seats as you wish, with no variation in cost.

While we do not have a formal shared flight program, we are more than happy to facilitate shared flights between parties if both are amenable.

Which airport do you use in Ft. Lauderdale?

As one of our most important charter flight hubs, we can accommodate departures and arrivals in every Ft. Lauderdale airport. The most economical option is usually Ft. Lauderdale Executive (FXE).

If you are flexible on the airport(s) you are able to use for your trip, the aircraft options and pricing will generally be more competitive. Aircraft are often heading to/coming from Miami, so if you can use a Miami alternative like Opa Locka Executive (OPF) that will often save on cost.
