The aircraft charter industry supports global manufacturing and distribution, business and entertainment every day of the year, all over the world. Whilst the world now seems very well served with over 100,000 scheduled flights per day across the globe, there are still people, groups or goods that need to travel via another mode.

Aircraft charter enables the end user to bespoke their requirements exactly whether it be for executive aviation, large passenger group or freight.

Book an Aircraft Charter…

Executive aviation clients may charter because:

  • There are no suitable airline services for their date / route / time
  • They want to conduct confidential business in the air and use their time productively
  • They require privacy / discretion owing to their profile
  • It’s more cost or time efficient for the number of passengers / routing
  • They need to get somewhere quickly

Large passenger groups may benefit from chartering because:

  • There are no suitable airline services for their date / route / time
  • They are travelling for a specific event such as a product launch or sporting competition
  • They are travelling for a specific itinerary such as a cruise ship / vacation package / other seasonal charter
  • They are travelling for a professional event such as conference / incentive charter
  • They require urgent evacuation from a crisis zone
  • Charter allows point to point travel from smaller local airports significantly reducing travel time and overall costs

Cargo logistics businesses may consider charter because:

  • There are no suitable airline services for their date / route / time
  • The freight is oversized or especially valuable or dangerous / specialised / perishable goods
  • It is being transported at a seasonal peak and there is no scheduled freighter capacity
  • It is being transported for a particular schedule and needs to stay together, ie band freight or plant moves
  • It is being transported at short notice for urgent production line continuity or aircraft / ship spare parts
