The benefit of flying with an air charter service provider is that your flight will never be delayed unnecessarily. This allows you to avoid the frustration of sitting in an airport waiting lounge and seeing your scheduled departure time come and go – a not uncommon occurrence. Your charter flight may be delayed if there are weather conditions or other circumstances that could make it unsafe to fly, however you will be kept fully informed at every step of the process and will never be left wondering as to the current status of your flight or estimated flight time.
We fly into hundreds of different airports and airstrips. Most of these airports are serviced with bathrooms, waiting areas, and other customer service facilities. Some of the smallest airports will have basic amenities. However, part of our role at Corporate Air is to assist you with all aspects of your flight.
