FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (H3)
AIR CHARTER. What does chartering an aircraft mean?(H4)
Chartering an aircraft means renting it for your exclusive use. When you charter an aircraft with Elevair you are in control! You take off at the time you want and fly to the destination of your choice. Of course, you enjoy the same flexibility on the way back.
COST. How much does it cost to charter an aircraft? h4
The price of each flight is determined by the departure and destination locations as well as the various charges that we must pay: flight crew, fuel, landing fees, ramp fees, navigation services, etc. When we give you a quote for your flight, the total price always includes theses charges. There are no hidden fees! Is charter cheaper than a commercial flight? When you charter a plane with Chrono Aviation, the entire aircraft is at your disposal. Thus, the number of passengers does not affect the cost. From as little as four passengers, a charter flight often becomes more economical than a commercial flight. And because you determine the flight schedule, you have the option of returning home in the evening to save hotel and meal fees.
ONE WAY FLIGHTS. Can I charter a one-way flight?
Of course! Note that the cost of a one-way flight is about the same as that of a round-trip flight because the aircraft must always return to or originate from its base. The price reflects standard flight departure / arrival from our private VIP facility (Mapiex Fixed Base Operation) at Panama City’s Albrook Airport or from the private Signature Flight Services facility at Tocumen International Airport if specifically mentioned. Rates are for the full charter, not per person, and for one way point-to-point transfers. Therefore there will be one deadhead / positioning flight for each segment.
AIRPORTS FOR DEPARTURE & ARRIVALS. What airports do you fly out of?
Our standard flight departure / arrival for clients is from our private VIP facility at the Mapiex Hanger at Panama City’s domestic airport, Albrook Airport. This facility has direct street access with AAC Security Screening which means within minutes you can be from your transport and into our VIP Client Lounge for your seaplane pre-flight briefing. Or when arriving you can be into your hotel transport minutes after the seaplane arrives.
If you are arriving or departing on an international flight at Tocumen Airport we can offer our VIP Meet and Assist services or special departure services and your seaplane arrives and departs from the private Signature Flight Services facility.
We can also operate into the Panama Pacifico Airport, Pedasi Airport, David Airport or the Bocas del Toro (Isla Colon) Airport. Each has varying levels of services available so please contact us for details.
