If a flight is affected by adverse weather (such as fog at the destination), you will be given
the option to delay the flight until the weather improves or you may instead wish to fly to an unaffected airport near to your destination, if available.
When you arrive at your destination airport, you will be met by a handling agent who will take you to the terminal building, where you can meet your onward transportation. If required, Baron Aviation can organise onward transportation for you.
The charter briefing, which you will receive when you book your aircraft, will contain details of where to report to, including telephone numbers and crew contact details. Of course each airfield is different- but the general rule is that you should aim to arrive 20 minutes prior to your planned departure time.
When you book your flight you will be asked for any specific catering requirements you might have. Dependent on the type of aircraft you are chartering, different levels of catering can be arranged.
When you book a private aircraft, you decide who will be on the aircraft with you.
Cabin pressurization is the active pumping of air into the cabin of an aircraft to increase the air pressure within the cabin. It is required when an aircraft reaches high altitudes and the outside air becomes thinner, containing less oxygen. All jets and turboprops have pressurized cabins.
All the medium to large business jets have fully enclosed toilet facilities. Light jets, turboprops may offer limited or no toilet facilities. You will be advised of the facilities available on your aircraft during booking.

The operator possesses a valid Air operator`s certificate (AOC)
The aircraft is flown and maintained to DGCA standards.
The aircraft is comprehensively insured to industry-accepted levels.
Tickets are not required on executive charter aircraft. All we require is a list of passenger names the day before you travel. On international flights we sometimes need additional information such as passenger nationality, date of birth passport number and Valid Visa. In all cases, you will be advised of the passenger information we will require well in advance of your flight.
No, we always provide transparent pricing that includes all costs. Generally, prices will only change if you request a different itinerary or if you ask us to reschedule your flight, requiring the aircraft to land outside an airport’s published operating times. This would usually incur an watch hour’s extension charge.
You will always be advised of any changes to the charter price before you have to make a binding decision.
No, your price is based on chartering the entire aircraft and will therefore not change as long as the number of passengers does not exceed the aircraft’s available seating capacity or the maximum payload for your chosen route (thus requiring an alternative aircraft to the one originally quoted).
