The impression that air charter is an expensive alternative to scheduled air services is a misunderstood generalization!
When considering cost factors such as flexibility, convenience, exclusivity and travelling time saved, charters can be cost effective, given the ever increasing pace of business and meeting deadlines.
Whether on a business trip, a private vacation or group incentive, time is always of the essence – to do and see more in the limited time available.
For the business executive avoiding the normal airport formalities, whilst travelling in luxury, affords time to be utilized more effectively. Using the most suitable aircraft types, airfields less congested, compared to busy airports, time and money can be saved.
The family or travel party on a private vacation wants to get to their selected special destinations quickly and safely to enjoy the experience.
Likewise, incentive groups, whether 40 or 400 guests, have very limited time available with many activities planned at several destinations. Typically these destinations include Cape Town, with the nearby winelands, the various wildlife areas for a safari/bush experience, Victoria Falls, Livingstone and Namibia.
Geographically these areas are far apart, making air travel the most suitable option. Although scheduled airlines fly to the major cities or towns nearby, their operating times are fixed and associated with the normal standard service. The possibilities of tailor-made air charters are infinite, contributing to an overall satisfying experience albeit, a business trip, private vacation or group incentive.
