Frequently Asked Questions - Charters
This is very dependent on the destinations, aircraft used, flight distances and passenger numbers involved. It is important to remember that when chartering, you are paying for the exclusive use of the aircraft on a specific date and routing.
Although there are multiple airports across Southern Africa that can be utilised, not all are suitable for every aircraft type or passenger load. The destinations must comply with all relevant safety, security and operational requirements and we must be able to provide suitable ground support for the charter operation. We do not however charter any of our aircraft into unsurfaced airfields.
For charter purposes, we presently offer the following:
- 12 seater Cessna Grand Caravan
- 29 seater Jetstream 4100 turbo prop
- 44 seater Embraer ERJ-140
- 98 seater Embraer E-JET 190
It is best not to leave charter arrangements for the last minute. Securing aircraft, crew, airport slots, permissions and a veritable host of other ancillary services required for such operations can take time to plan and procure.
The aircraft and crew used for charter are the same aircraft and crew that operate on our scheduled services, and are thus held to the same stringent maintenance and training standards laid down by both local and international authorities such as the SACAA, IATA and ICAO.
