Differences Between Scheduled & Chartered Flights
Air travel is preferred by most savvy travellers as it is faster and safer then other modes of travel. There are many services available today because of the abundance of scheduled and charter flights. But how different are these from each other?
Airco Aircraft Charters Ltd. offers charter flight services from Edmonton to Calgary and other destinations. Our fleet of all-weather, twin-engine aircrafts depart on the most appropriate time, day and location for you. Whether it’s for work or leisure, you can always count on us to get the job done right.
What Are Scheduled Flights and Charter Flights?
A scheduled flight means the air carrier sells single seats to individuals until the aircraft is full. A scheduled service operator offers flights on a regular basis be it hourly, daily, or monthly schedules. The departure times are fixed and so is the routing. Flight details are very static and standard.
A charter flight is quite different from a scheduled flight. A charter flight does not follow a schedule set by the air carrier. The customer sets the schedule to meet their needs. Essentially a charter is when a person or a company rents an entire aircraft for a very particular purpose. The departure times and final destinations are set as per the individual agreement between the hirer and the aircraft company.
In Canada both charter operators and schedule service operators must meet the same safety standards and they must follow the same strict regulations. The only difference between scheduled services and charter services is the personalised service and flexible itinerary.
