Public Charter flights are a way of providing air transportation services that are subject to USDOT regulations. These federal regulations provide enhanced consumer protections over airlines operating under FAA 121 by specifying minimum contract terms and imposing requirements for handling of passenger funds.
The United States Department of Transportation advises passengers that:
“Charter flights can provide excellent value, and they often operate nonstop in markets where scheduled flights would be less direct. In addition, many charters don’t have all of the restrictions of scheduled service discount fares, e.g., advance-purchase, stay over a Saturday night, stay no more than 30 days, etc. Finally, most charter fares are not “capacity-controlled” like scheduled-service discount fares; every seat on the airplane is usually available at the advertised fare.“
