Hey gang, a family member is getting married in Portugal next summer. I joked with her that she has so many people going over from Toronto, that she should look into chartering a jet. Then I got to wondering, what if this could be possible?

So, does anybody have any info? If we had at least 50 people going from the Toronto area (doesn't have to be YYZ) to Porto, would it be possible and feasible to charter a plane? If anybody could point me in the direction of some info (or tell me it's not possible) I'd greatly appreciate it.


But that was when I ruled the world

The second link is for their charter service.



Little airports with the big jets are the best!! Floyd

Just thinking, what plane has ~50 pax capacity and the legs to fly across the pond without stopping? A 737/A320 is going to be too big ($$) and a large business jet too small. You probably want an RJ/ERJ-sized plane, but that would require a fuel stop.


You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.

You want a XRJ specific, they can almost go coast to coast but they might be able to do it. Just a suggestion.

Though this is interesting to look at... I have a really good feeling you can get some really great group rates...I'm sure you can look at the majors, but of course there's also TS that flies the YYZ-OPO route non stop... Im sure you could get some good group rate from them?

Airlines always give good group discount rates, though it may mean calling them rather than doing it online. Our company always fly the staff globally somewhere for our xmas party and we always get a great deal for 40+ people.

Give AC a call, Star Alliance connection through LHR or FRA on to TP.

For a group this size, you need to get in touch with a group travel specialist, a Google search will get you started.

For about 50 people, you can do it non-stop on an ACJ or a BBJ in executive charter configuration from the likes of Air Canada Jetz (A319 - 64 seats), DC Aviation (A319 ACJ - 46 seats) or PrivatAir (BBJ - 48 seats). Baggage space is limited, however, as some of what is normally the cargo hold contains additional fuel tanks. Forget about every guest bringing a kitchen sink as wedding present.

Your other option is to fly commercial with a connection, but be aware that your group is big enough that you would probably have to find an airline willing and able to up-gauge the unavoidable narrow-body leg. I can't see LH giving you half an A320 on FRA - LIS for instance (unless you'd be willing to pay a lot), they'd want to sub an A321 to accommodate the usual summer load on top of your group, and would either charge you quite a lot more, or decline outright, if they were unable to.

Heck, with a group as large as yours, during the summer travel season, some airlines might even up-gauge both legs of the connection.

Definitely do not do this on your own, if you want to consider it seriously.



I've got $h*t to do
