Large Group Charter

Mon Feb 28, 2005 7:08 am

I'm working on a hypothetical business travel proposal, and I am curious if someone could educate me on the costs of airline charter for large groups of people. Specifically, what would it cost to transport 40-50 passengers on a regular basis, within the U.S? In addition to the airlines, I understand that companies like Blue Moon Aviation cater to large groups (are their others?). Since I am not yet in a position to need their services (and I don't want to waste their time), I have not yet gone directly to the source for these answers.

Is there someone out there that could tell me what it costs to charter a comfortably equipped airplane from the airlines? From a charter company? What kind of contracts need to be signed? What is included? What's not? What kind of aircraft are generally used? Do other businesses with large groups charter the airlines, or do they just own and operate their own large jets?

A lot of questions. Any information with which I could better understand my options would be appreciated.

Thanks.
