What is a Cargo Aircraft Charter?


In General, there are two types of cargo aircraft flights:


1. A Scheduled Service Flight, the more common of the two, is a flight performed by an airline according to a published scheduled of departures and arrivals for which cargo hold space is sold. This is comparable to a city bus traveling the same daily route, with the bus being equivalent to a scheduled aircraft and cargo hold space being equivalent to a single seat.


2. A Cargo Aircraft Charter Flight, the service Air Charter Authority specializes in offering, is the utilization of an entire aircraft, on one or multiple flights, where by the aircraft type, origin and departure airports are chosen based on a clients requirements. Charter is equivalent to a city taxi picking one up from an airport and taking them to their home. Charter flights require much more care than most scheduled flights.
