  Charter, as well as regular flights (constant delays).

  Quite a few people are wondering if there is a difference in the protection of rights if the flight was delayed on charter or regular flights. The first step is to understand the terminology.

    What is a charter flight? A charter flight is a charter contract that is provided between the carrier and the tour operator. Such flights do not provide a fixed flight schedule, the accuracy of which ranges from 3 to 5 hours. The bulk of directly tourist flights use this method, still it can be called "beach". The tour operator will be able to help you purchase a ticket for a charter flight; in other air agencies you will not be able to find tickets for such flights. It is also important that the tour operators themselves do not have an interest in carrying out the sale of tickets separately. It will be more profitable to sell tickets in a complex form for a trip, even if it is not too expensive.

    We now turn to regular flights. Regular flights opposite to the charter and are carried out in accordance with a fixed schedule on an appropriate basis, namely year-round. There are corresponding instructions on sales and reservations or registrations on the refusal of the flight, with which you have the opportunity to make an acquaintance at the ticket office. Intergovernmental agreement regulates all international flights.

    Now directly to the air ticket itself. A flight ticket is a contract between a carrier and a passenger. In the contract, the airline undertakes to deliver the passenger and his luggage to the specified place at the specified time, while ensuring safety. The passenger undertakes to pay for the services provided by the air carrier.

   According to the Air Code, the responsibility for any delays or flight cancellations borne by airlinesWhatever flight it is. (Charter or regular). Then from the point of payment between charter and regular flight, there is no difference. In case of flight delays, the airline and only the airline will be obliged to pay compensation or provide certain services for the flight delay.

I want to express my opinion and forward the claim of the company Aiflay!

I will sue and demand compensation for damage, I want to note that I purchased tickets not from the travel agency and not under the contract, and on your site only air tickets. Nobody told me that the flight could be delayed for so long, and without a refund of monetary compensation. Therefore, all the information at the airport I collected, ticket stubs are, clearance of the day at the hotel is. Prepare for court, careless my carriers! By the way, back 24 July also had to get out of nerves, with it already before the deadline, again the loss of time for rest in the hotel, a few hours earlier for some reason and another company. You really better get out of the air transportation market if you do not know how to work with dignity! I'm waiting for explanations and apologies ...
