What is a chartered flight?

Unlike a scheduled flight, a chartered flight lets you decide the schedule and the destination – where you fly from and to, and at what time. You can even choose what type of aircraft will transport you. See our Aircraft Guide for more information.

You could also benefit from substantial discounts by taking advantage of Empty Leg Flights.

What is an empty leg flight?

An empty leg flight can help you make considerable savings on the cost of your travel. Whenever an aircraft which has been booked to fly in one direction only, it still has to make a return journey. On this return journey, the fuel and aircrew still cost money – that's why many operators offer discounted fares to fill the seats.

Is it safe to travel by chartered flights?

At IAC, the health and safety of our customers is our highest priority. We ensure that all aircrew meet with strict regulations and bring thousands of hours flying experience. What's more, all the aircraft we use are subject to the same stringent checks and maintenance as on scheduled airlines.
