Benefits of Charter Flights
Charter flights are not included in the main flight schedule, but our compatriots know firsthand about their advantages. Usually charters from St. Petersburg organize during the “high tourist season”, when the demand for airline tickets to various destinations, including to Portugal, is noticeably increasing.
It is important that direct charters are an opportunity to quickly and comfortably get to holiday destinations, where there are no regular flights without transfers and connections. Until recently, Petersburgers and other residents of the North-West region had to get to Portugal “on the crossroads” via Moscow, Riga or airports in Finland. It was required to leave home in advance, especially if it was necessary to cross the border, where there are often lines.
If the flight departed early in the morning, then travelers had to spend a sleepless night at the airport of departure or spend money on the hotel. In addition, there are not many direct flights even from all of these cities, so travel time is increased by waiting at transit airports. So it turned out that before a tourist gets from St. Petersburg to Lisbon, he is already exhausted and he needs to “come to his senses” in order to feel like a “rest”. After all, not every person, especially the elderly or burdened with a family with kids, is ready for such a long trip to the airports of Europe. There, of course, it is quite comfortable, but who wants to waste precious days of vacation or vacation in vain?
Another advantage of charter flights is their lower cost than regular flights. According to experts, the price of a ticket for a charter flight is on average 57% lower than for a regular flight. And it happens that the cost of a charter is 3 times more profitable than flying a regular flight.
Opponents of charter flights are frightened by overbooking (this is when there are more tickets sold than seats on the plane), the possibility of replacing the aircraft and delaying the departure time. However, you should be aware that the airline or tour operator undertakes obligations when selling a ticket, so the passenger will be delivered to the destination. It is because of overbooking that the type of liner can change, and the exact time of departure becomes known a few days before departure. In any case, passengers are advised to check in on time, but this also applies to passengers on any scheduled flight.
