Aircraft charter, also known as air taxi, is the business of renting (chartering) an entire aircraft. Rather than purchasing individual seats on a scheduled and shared flight, charter clients have access to the entire aircraft and determine the schedule along with the departure and destination airports. This is commonly referred to as Business Aviation, or Private Aviation.
Charter Membership – Jet Cards
Charter Memberships or Jet Cards, are services that provide holders access to different aircraft (private jets, turboprops) at predetermined rates or a fixed number of hours in exchange for a deposit or membership fee.
Empty legs (also known as open legs) are flights on charter aircraft that are scheduled to fly without any passengers. They operate when an aircraft needs to position for another flight or return to home base.
Aircraft positioning occurs when an private jet or turboprop has been scheduled for a charter flight and is away from the departure airport. The aircraft positions to the departure airport in order to complete the schedule.
