What is a charter flight?
Air charter is the complete or partial hiring of an aircraft for private use at a more economical price.
When contracting the service, you can choose between passenger or freight aircraft depending on the volume of the goods and the availability of the flights.
In the case of contracting a full charter in a freight aircraft, you can set the date and time of departure, as well as the option of not making stopovers. In this way, the limitations will be minimal when arriving at the destination.
Benefits of the charter service
Some of the benefits offered by the charter air transport service are:
- There is no limitation on the flight schedule.
- Assured cargo capacities.
- Minimal risk of delays.
- Trips can be made to areas where there are no regular commercial routes.
- As there are no stopovers, the time required to complete the journey is reduced.
- Maximum security through door-to-door tracking of the goods.
- Dangerous goods can be shipped.
At Grupo Marítima Sureste we provide our clients with tailor-made charter flights, adapting to the needs and products of each client so that the logistics operation is a success.
We also carry out express shipments and On Board Courier by plane.

Aircraft Charter Agreement Model
This contract refers to the agreement between the exporter and the shipper for the chartering of an aircraft that does not fly regular air routes, but simply follows the route between the point of collection and the point of delivery. In addition, the entire cargo is usually owned by the same company.
In these circumstances, the exporter leases the entire aircraft so that it is at his disposal to transport the goods.
In this document, the company owning the aircraft, known as the charterer, and the company exporting the goods, known as the charterer in the contract, determine the obligations and responsibilities of both parties regarding the charterer’s use of the entire aircraft for a specific shipment.
It is a temporary contract for the charter of an entire aircraft for the duration of one or more air logistics operations.
The charterer is committed to provide the charterer with a specific model of aircraft, with the crew required for the flight, properly equipped and fuelled, located at the airport of departure. In addition, according to the contract, the charterer shall maintain the aircraft in optimum condition for the duration of the contract.
The charterer’s primary obligation will be to cover the costs set out in the charter contract, as well as other agreed expenses.
