What is a Charter Flight?
As we mainly operate scheduled services but offer charter flights as well, you may be wondering whether a flight is scheduled or charter.
Seats on our scheduled flights are mainly offered directly to customers by Jet2.com, and they’re also available through travel agents too. You can find out more about our scheduled flights at www.jet2.com.
In contrast, charter seats are never sold by Jet2.com directly to our passengers. If you’re travelling on a Jet2charter flight, you may have booked your holiday or flight through a tour operator or a travel agent acting as an agent of the tour operator. Alternatively, you may have been invited to travel by a corporate client, or have booked a special trip for a sporting event or any other ‘one off’ reason. If so, you’ll be flying on a charter flight. We provide the aircraft on behalf of our client, who in turn offers the trip or the holiday package to you.
One of the great things about chartering an aircraft is that you can choose where you want to fly to. You can also choose what time you want to fly and what type of service you’d like to provide for your guests. All in all, it’s a bespoke service, tailored to your needs. This makes each charter flight a unique, unforgettable experience for your passengers.
If you are unsure whether your flight is a charter or a scheduled flight, the clue is in the flight number - all scheduled flights have three figure flight numbers, such as LS202 or LS809. Whereas, all charter flights have four figure flight numbers, such as LS2117 or LS6158.
