Charter FAQ

Which airport(s) does evoJets use in San Francisco?

As one of our most important charter hubs, we can accommodate departures and arrivals in every San Francisco airport in the Bay Area.

San Francisco International (SFO) is a popular option but can be very expensive compared to smaller alternatives due to high landing fees and fuel prices. Oakland Metro (OAK) and San Jose (SJC) are typical charter alternatives not only for improved cost, but also for lighter crowds and traffic.

We can also fly in and out of smaller regional alternatives like Palo Alto (PAO) San Carlos (SQL) and Hayward Executive (HWD).

Do you offer small aircraft for charter flights between LA and San Francisco?

Yes. evoJets has an enormous network of piston and turboprop aircraft in San Francisco that are perfect for short hops around the LA and San Francisco. We also offer compact light jets which are great for this popular route.

These aircraft are considerably less expensive to operate than traditional jets, and are just as safe and convenient.

Do you offer individual seats or shared flight service to San Francisco?

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.
