King Air B200 - Best Regional Air Charter Aircraft
The Beechcraft King Air 200 is one of the most popular and comfortable tuboprop charter aircraft that you can fly. With a comfortable and roomy cabin, it's comfort rivals those of the smaller light jets like the Cessna Citation Jets or small Lear Jets. Odyssey Airways is proud to have its Beechcraft King Air B200 turboprop aircraft in its air carrier charter fleet. Odyssey offers one of the newest and most recently refurbished King Air charters in the State of Florida.
The King Air can safely provide private air charter from Florida to the Bahamas, Florida Keys, Mexico, Caribbean and Southeast United States with 6-7 passengers and a lot of luggage. Our King Air B200 is one of the newest King Air's available for charter services in the Southeast United States. Based in the Tampa Bay Area, it is the perfect aircraft for your private air travel needs at prices less than your light jets but offering more comfort than most.
Cabin Size and Comfort
The King Air is best used for trips of about 90 minutes to 2 hours. With a pressurized cabin and cruising speeds of over 300 MPH, the best profile for this turboprop aircraft is about 500-600 miles. The cabin comfort is comparable to the following light jets but at a fraction of the price:
- Cessna Citation CJ/CJ1/CJ2/CJ3
- Learjet 31
- Learjet 35
- Beechjet 400
- Nextant 400
In the turboprop market, the King Air has a wider and taller cabin than most other turboprop and twin piston aircraft available for private aircraft charter. It also has the same ammenities of most light and midsize jets, such as a flushing lavatory, privacy cabin doors, and fully-reclining seats. With the cost-efficiency and cabin comfort greater than the light jets, many of our clients choose to fly on the King Air 200 over a Cessna Citation for a marginally longer flight and at a lower price.
For example, a private flight from Tampa International Airport (TPA) or Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) to Atlanta, Georgia would have approximately the following flight times and costs over the Cessna Citation:
- King Air B200 - 1 hour 40 minutes - $7,000
- Cessna Citation - 1 hour 20 minutes - $8,500
You can save up to $3,000 on a round-trip jet charter flight by just adding a few minutes and being in a roomier more comfortable cabin capable of holding up to 7 passengers and two pilots.
Another example would be a private flight from Tampa Bay area to Key West.
- King Air B200 - 1 hour 6 minutes - $4,850
- Cessna Citation - 1 hour - $6,000
For only 6 more minutes and larger passenger capacity, you can save over $2,000 on a round-trip by booking the King Air B200 over a light jet.
Shorter Runways & More Airport Options
Many of the lighter jets are unable to land at airports of less than 5,000 feet. That's where the King Air B200 can allow greater access to more destinations to get you closer to where you need to go.
One of our most popular destinations would be Staniel Cay in the Bahamas. The King Air can land at Staniel Cay with up to 7 passengers. Other light jets can only get you to Exuma International Airport in George Town.
There are other airport in the Bahamas that are not accessible by the light jets and larger aircraft. That's what helps to make the King Air 200 one of the best charter aircraft.
