Group charters

Whether your group charter is for business, pleasure, entertainment, or crisis situations, 26AVIATION has access to commercial aircraft ranging from regional turboprops to full scale airliners, to suit the group size and expectations of the passengers on board. 

While you dictate the route and agenda, the 26AVIATION team is on hand to safely and seamlessly coordinate the entire schedule from start to finish, ensuring your trip exceeds all expectations. From airport transfers to accommodation bookings, airport handling and landing slots, we will manage every aspect of the charter flight itinerary.

Complete customisation of the entire journey comes as standard, from bespoke check-in experiences and branded cabin designs to tailored in-flight services, custom catering and on-site representation, will make your group charter a truly memorable experience for all on board. 


Group charters offer the ultimate customisation options for travellers, irrespective of group size. The advantages of short notice bookings, round the clock assistance, unlimited airport pairings and bespoke schedules are just a few of the perks that group charter clients enjoy. 

It has been well documented that COVID-19 has greatly affected commercial travel with route disruptions, long delays, and flight cancellations being the “new normal”. Many of these inconveniences are eliminated when engaging 26AVIATION to manage your group charter. 

Every group charter flight that 26AVIATION is entrusted with, comes with the option to enjoy the following benefits:

Commercial travel has been disrupted dramatically since the arrival of COVID-19. Fears of contracting the coronavirus have sent confidence levels plummeting and these fears are magnified for many who choose or need to fly. Contagious touchpoints at the airport and on board a scheduled flight are staggeringly high. Organising a group charter can reduce these to a degree due to the following strategies which 26AVIATION incorporates into every group charter: 

  • The aircraft is completely sanitized before group boarding using approved disinfectants.
  • All the passengers on board are known to each other, ensuring track & trace capability.
  • Crew in flight precautions such as additional hygiene methods and social distancing.
  • Group luggage does not come into contact with third party luggage at any point 
  • A dedicated check-in aisle and ground transport is organised for your group.
  • VIP terminal availability at selected airports, minimising touchpoints.
  • The level of PPE used (such as visors or masks) is based on your preference.

Each strategy serves to limit contact with third parties, both on board and at the airport, so as to minimise the risk of contracting the virus whilst in transit. 

All strategies are complemented by a full, pre-flight COVID-19 risk analysis performed by 26AVIATION reviewing all mandatory & advisory guidelines.

Like sporting events, concerts and music festivals are held the world over and host some of the most talented musicians and bands, many of whom travel with their instruments and other delicate equipment.

These could include full business class configured aircraft cabins, VIP airport transfers, VIP check-in and a VIP terminal for the privacy and security of our client/s.
