Embassy Charters - Getting Your Mission Off The Ground

If your embassy requires the services of private chartered aircraft for use in its diplomatic mission, Air Charter Team's brokers are ready to help ensure the success of your mission! Our professional staff will work with your team, ensuring that even the smallest detail on your charter travel arrangements is handled to your team's complete satisfaction.

  • International Clearance: There are a multitude of regulatory issues that affect chartered international flights. Air Charter Team has direct experience in working with the private carriers in securing operational clearance from foreign governments when there is a need to operate a flight into a specific airport or country.
  • Confidentiality: It's not uncommon for an embassy's diplomatic missions to require complete confidentiality. Air Charter Team provides a level of privacy not available with scheduled airlines. We understand the need for privacy, and we will work with your Embassy personnel to maintain all details related to your mission's flight operations in the strictest confidence.
  • On Site Representation: Air Charter Team will provide a representative on site (and at times on board) to coordinate and manage flight operations, providing your Embassy personnel with a level of comfort in the knowledge that all details will be attended to for your chartered flight.
  • World Wide Network: Air Charter Team's network of charter management firms stretches around with the world with offices in the United States, Great Britain, France, Spain, Hong Kong, South Africa, and Australia. This extensive network gives your embassy travel department access to a wide range of aircraft, anywhere in the world, at a moment's notice, something commercial airlines simply can't do.
  • Security and Safety: Now more than ever, security is a concern for all travelers. Air Charter Team verifies the security clearance and safety and training records of all the flight crews we charter planes with through a third-party firm. If your embassy's diplomatic mission requires an added layer of safety, Air Charter Team can contract additional security for you. Learn more about our stance on safety.
  • Schedule Flexibility: Private air charters provide a level of schedule flexibility and service that is just not available with scheduled commercial service. Your diplomatic mission's schedule and service levels can be custom-tailored to fit your exact needs on a charter flight. Private air charters also offer access to many more airports around the world than are available via commercial service.

Testimonial from Luxembourg Embassy:

The Embassy was very pleased with the service and the pricing it received from Air Charter Team. From the beginning to the end of our charter flight experience, the staff at Air Charter Team was very professional and responsive to our needs and requests. We were concerned about a number of operational issues, i.e., clearance into the international airports, and Air Charter Team was able to work with the operator to obtain the authorizations we needed. We were pleased with the attention to detail given by Air Charter Team. We would highly recommend their charter broker services to the Embassy community.
