What's the difference between Air Charter & a Commercial Airline?
Air charter is the business of renting an entire aircraft i.e., chartering) as opposed to individual aircraft seats (i.e., purchasing a ticket through a traditional airline). While the airlines specialise in selling transportation by the seat, Southern Airlines focus on individual private aircraft and itineraries, urgent or time-sensitive cargo, air ambulance and any other form of ad hoc air transportation.
