Passenger Information for Jet Charter Flights with Altitude Aviation


Passenger Information

Altitude Aviation wishes to advise you of the following tips and safety information to avoid any inconveniences prior to or during your charter flight.


It is recommended that passengers arrive at the Airport 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure, especially if the charter itinery is time critical.

The flight times given in charter quotes are usually the expected flight time in the air (assuming nil wind). It is generally prudent to add at least 15 minutes at each end of the flight when planning your itinerary loading/unloading bags, boarding and taxiing.

Passenger/Baggage Weights

For business jet aircraft, passenger weights and baggage are usually less critical than other general aviation aircraft, however the aircraft can still be limited in terms of payload weight and physical space available, particularly on longer sectors or operations into short airfields.

For corporate jets and larger aircraft, standard passenger weights are normally used by the flight crew in calculations.

Aircraft are generally designed to have a trade off between payload (passengers and freight) able to be carried and fuel. Often an aircraft will not be able to carry its full seat capacity due to fuel requirements and weight limitations.

Fuel Stops

Sometimes the aircraft may have to stop for fuel enroute. This would generally add about 30 minutes to the trip, however is a good opportunity to get out and stretch your legs.

If the aircraft is heavily loaded, more fuel stops may required than if a lighter load was carried.

Additional Information

Smoking is not permitted on aircraft.

Dangerous goods (such as aerosols, paint, matches, gas stoves, firearms/ammunition etc ) are normally not permitted onboard aircraft and must be declared to your flight crew prior to loading/boarding to ensure the safety of your flight.

For further information, please contact our charter managers who would be more than happy to discuss any issues with you to ensure the safety and efficiency of your charter flight.
