 Charter airline - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the context of mass tourism, charter flights have acquired the more specific meaning of a flight whose sole function is to transport holidaymakers to tourist destinations.
Although charter airlines typically carry passengers who have booked individually or as small groups to beach resorts, historic towns, or cities where a cruise ship is awaiting them, sometimes an aircraft will be chartered by a single group such as members of a company, a sports team, or the military.
The economics of charter flights demand that the flights should operate on the basis of near 100% seat occupancy, and the standard of seating and service may be lower than on scheduled airlines (though this is by no means always the case).

 Aargus Air Charter - On-Demand Charter - Passenger and Cargo
We cannot say that a passenger would never experience an unexpected delay on a charter, as we are subject to the same air traffic and mechanical regulations as the airlines, but we do not face many of the other delay factors that they are subject to.
Air charter costs are based on miles flown, not the number of passengers, enabling us to fly three or more for the same cost as one.
The charter aircraft experience also "puts you in the sky" much more vividly that an airliner; instead of that little 9"x11" view of the world (if you have a window seat) you get in an airliner, you have almost a 320° panoramic view of the flight.

Callahan said the charter service's customers include business travelers and those who may be traveling to vacation homes, which represent 25 percent of the company's business.
The charter service also manages aircraft for owners who may not be using their aircraft regularly, managing Federal Aviation Administration "red tape" and doing maintenance, Callahan said.
The charter planes are vital to the airport, because, for example, the Nashville-based charter buys 600 gallons of fuel from the Lancaster airport, a lot more than the 20 to 40 gallons most of the small planes at the airport require.

 CNN.com - Charter airline barred from releasing Jackson tapes - Nov. 26, 2003
Mark Geragos, lawyer for pop singer Michael Jackson, obtained a temporary restraining order Tuesday against a charter airline that he said secretly videotaped Jackson and him talking on board one of its planes and shopped the tapes to media outlets.
Jackson spokesman Stuart Backerman said the tapes were made Thursday while Geragos and the singer flew from Las Vegas, Nevada, to Santa Barbara, California, where Jackson surrendered to authorities on suspicion of child molestation and was released on $3 million bond.
The restraining order issued by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Yaffe prohibits XtraJet, the airline Geragos said placed the cameras aboard the plane, from releasing the tapes until a hearing in December on a permanent injunction, according to a statement from Backerman.
