Charter Flights – Premium Cabins Are Good Value

Charter Flights sometimes come in for criticism but I personally think that this is unjustified. Charter flight companies have had to adapt to the changing market conditions over the last few years and as competition has got ever fiercer the charter airlines have fought back by giving you the option of booking a Premium Cabin upgrade. Upgrading to the Premium Cabin can make much more sense as the cost is far cheaper than flying Business Class or in BA’s World Traveller Plus.

Most charter flight companies offer a Premium Cabin on their long haul routes which means you can fly in relative comfort for a reasonable price.The Premium Cabin on a charter flight will normally include either a 34 inch or 36 inch seat pitch, depending on the airline. In addition, you will normally be able to use a dedicated check-in and you will get better food on-board your flight as well as better in-flight entertainment. In many cases you will get a higher luggage allowance or the cost of checked-in bags will be included in the cost.

Prices can vary for a Premium Cabin upgrade. On a long haul flight it can cost up to £250 extra per person return but when you compare this extra cost to the price of an upgrade on a scheduled flight you will find that this is a lot cheaper. In addition, we often get special offers on cabin up-grades and prices can sometimes be as low as £50 extra for the premium cabin. Thompson flights, Thomas Cook flights and Monarch Airlines all offer cabin upgrades so just ask your travel agent to get you a price. 

Also, don’t assume that budget airlines are always the cheapest. On many routes charter flights compare favourably with the price of seats on a budget airline so make sure that you shop around. Here at Global Holidays, we can compare fares from charter airlines, scheduled airlines and budget airlines which we can search in only seconds so it is worth giving us a call.
