With low cost airlines like Southwest, Jetblue and Airtrans takeing over the low cost flight business and less people chartering jet in the US, I wonder do US own charter airline still makes a profit? I can only think of one US own charter airline that still in service, and that is Worlds Airways, TowerAir is now gone also ATA is now gone. Some could say the Military still use charter airlines, but lately they been using main stream airlines like NWA to transport troops. So are the days of US own Charter Airlines over?

For air travelers proportionately, the U.S. will never move the numbers that Canada does, where major charter carriers move large numbers each winter to Caribbean and Mexico fun-in-the-sun trips to all inclusive for 2-3 weeks at a time, or over to Europe during the summer months.

Quoting 747400sp (Thread starter):

The main reason NWA is doing more military charters is because now they've gotten ATA out of the way. For the most part I would say it's business as usual for the charter carriers like Omni, North American, etc., with regards to military charters. I'm not too sure about the ad-hoc commercial charters.



ATA - an honestly different airline.

Just wondering, does anyone know what percentage of income does the military contacts account for at World, and Omni?
