Whether you’re a professional or collegiate sports team or a group of business professionals, Delta has a number of charter options to fit your travel needs.
PRIVATE OR PUBLIC
The interested charterer should determine if their potential charter need is Private or Public.
SINGLE ENTITY PRIVATE CHARTER is one where the cost of the charter is borne by the charterer (a single entity) and not by individual passengers. Payment is for the entire aircraft, not individual seats.
PUBLIC CHARTER is one where the cost of the charter is borne by each individual passenger. If a charterer is intends to operate a Public Charter, they will need to submit a Charter Prospectus to the Special Authorities Division of the Department of Transportation (DOT). The charterer should access the DOT’s website which contains all appropriate Prospectus Forms for download and filing.
Charter pricing is based upon a number of parameters such as: aircraft type, fuel burn (i.e. gallons per hour), block hours flown, aircraft repositioning (i.e. ferrying) required, ground handling costs and catering costs.
The aircraft type will be determined by the projected passenger count in conjunction with Delta’s aircraft availability.
Taking into account the aforementioned pricing parameters, the average per seat cost is often times more expensive than scheduled service.
CHARTER CATERING & IN-FLIGHT ENTERTAINMENT
All charter pricing will incorporate a catering budget determined by aircraft type and flight distance. Our Charter Catering Specialists will work hand-in-hand with each charterer to fine-tune a menu that meets their needs.
Delta offers a significant amount of in-flight entertainment products to keep you entertained and productive when you’re in the air. A few examples of these products and amenities are: Gogo® In-flight Internet access, power outlets at your seat, access to hundreds of movies,TV shows and games, and a full spectrum of music programming.
Per DOT Regulations, charter payment must be received by Delta prior to the charter departure. Acceptable methods of payment are via a wire transfer or check; credit card payments are not accepted.
