We buy one or the other tour, not least focusing on its value. And the price of the tour depends on which method implements the air tour operator. Charter (no scheduled service) are considerably cheaper cost of leisure. It is a fact. So, to fly or not fly charter? To this question will almost Hamlet somehow responsible. So, let's talk about the pros and cons of charter flights. Between scheduled and charter flights there is quite a big difference. First, regular flights are typically performed by large airlines.
Occupancy of the plane does not play almost no role, ie, in the cabin and can fly two passengers – all flight still takes place. Service on scheduled flights and includes dinner with alcoholic beverages, and the press, and much else. Also, choosing a scheduled flight, you can buy a ticket just to one side, keep an eye on his place in the cabin one of the three classes rely on discounts, etc. In short, unpleasant surprises are likely, will not. But why do most of our tourists still prefer to charter? The answer is simple. The cost of a ticket on a charter flight often 2-3 times cheaper than regular. It is because of this huge benefits tourists are willing to endure inconvenience associated with the charter.
What are the disadvantages of charter? First of all, it is inconvenient and time of departure flight delays. All this is explained by the fact that the planes had to catch the "window" between scheduled flights. Equally important is the weather. If, for example, regular flights delayed due to bad weather conditions, the charter can therefore stay for a few hours. Because many charter flights fly "shuttle" method, ie bring some tourists and immediately pick up the others, most often you will be able to fly back exactly 7, 10 or 14 days (depending on the duration of your tour.) However, the most popular destinations (Turkey, for example) a lot of charters, and the date of his return can be corrected. Service on board too often far from ideal. Only on a few charter flights, you will be offered food and drinks. This should be considered, starting, for example, on vacation with children. Now on to the popular myths concerning the charter flights. Of course, Many of them had a real basis, associated with confusion in the tourist business, who was present at the dawn of the domestic market of tourist services. But, fortunately, much time has passed, and modern tour operators try to conform to international standards of tourist service, including in the field of air transportation. So today the talk about the fact that charters are made on the "crumbling" airplanes, to put it mildly, not correspond to reality. For charter flights using aircraft and major airlines – such as "Aeroflot". Yes, and private scheduled and charter companies are trying to win a good reputation by expanding its fleet and concluding with the travel agencies of a cooperation agreement. For any self-respecting tour operator choose the air carrier – a very serious point of affecting the reputation and profits. Therefore, buying a round, try to rely solely on a reliable company – as a tour operator or airline. Then the charter flight will not disappoint you.
