There are many advantages to choosing air charter for your most urgent shipments. With an air cargo charter, you get:

  • The unique use of an aircraft specifically optimized to carry your cargo. We apply our industry experience to find the right air carrier with the right aircraft for your cargo. If you only need a Cessna aircraft, we won’t book your shipment on a Boeing 747.
  • Fastest Shipping. Sending your shipment by air is the fastest delivery method available.
  • The possibility of a remote point of origin and/or destination. The only way to your destination is a dirt runway or no runway? Many of the air carriers we work with easily tolerate harsh conditions, with little or no supporting infrastructure required. Thanks to Air Freight Service’ global network of carriers, we can ship to and from anywhere in the world.
  • Total shipping flexibility. Your shipment can go to a major airport and end up on a grass field. With no restrictions on cargo size, we can easily handle all these details of the flight so you don’t have to.
  • In-flight tracking. You’ll know where your shipment is – at all times, at all times.
  • Concierge-level customer service. You’ll interact with one dedicated agent throughout from start to finish. Your agent will make sure you have a clear understanding of your options and costs, and then work with you until your shipment is in the right place.
  • 24-hour availability, support and coverage. Your shipment can’t wait during normal business hours, and neither can we.  Air Freight Service is ready to meet your air charter needs with our brokerage services.

How to deliver your cargo

We will find the perfect charter shipping option for your specific needs. Because air carriers offer so many aircraft for charter shipments, it’s easy for us to arrange to transport your cargo in any type of aircraft, from a Cessna 406 to a Boeing 747-400F cargo airliner.

Depending on the destination of your cargo, it can fly on several types of aircraft, landing first at a major airport on a long-haul aircraft, and departing from there on a local short-haul charter.

These are just some of the planes used by air carriers in the Air Freight Service network for cargo charters. If you have a specific aircraft type in mind, your agent will try to work with you to figure out your alternatives.

Shorter range – lighter weight

Despite their smaller payloads and shorter range, these mostly turboprop planes can get where heavy planes just can’t. Some have rough or unprepared fields and can land on very short landing strips, which is an advantage if your job site is in a remote location with undeveloped infrastructure. Although these turboprops are slower than jets, they still travel much faster than any ground transport.

Examples include:

  • Piper PA-31
  • Metro II
  • Pilatus PC-12
  • Cessna 406
  • Embraer Bandeirante
  • Metro III
  • Dassault Falcon 20
  • Shorts SD 360

Medium-haul – medium-weight

The advantages of greater speed, payload and range have made medium-haul airplanes efficient and reliable workhorses. Most are commonplace at airports around the world, especially Boeing and Airbus freighters converted from commercial models. Although jets dominate among them, there are also larger turboprops. Fast, efficient and effective, medium-haul aircraft bridge the capability gap between heavy and light aircraft.

Examples include:

  • Antonov An-26
  • Convair CV-580
  • McDonnell Douglas DC-9 15F
  • Antonov An-12
  • Boeing 737-300F
  • Boeing 737-400F
  • Boeing 727-200F
  • Airbus A300-A600F

Long-haul – heavy

Long-haul aircraft are at the other end of the spectrum. They carry the greatest amount of cargo by weight and volume over the longest distances and are especially needed for international cargo charters. One of the most famous long-haul aircraft is the Boeing 747. It is the only commercially available cargo aircraft with a nose door that allows oversized cargo to be carried and improves the speed of orders. Combined with its unique cargo pallet handling system, it has more payload capacity than almost any other cargo aircraft in the world. When your cargo needs to be “go big or go home,” long-haul aircraft give you the payload capacity and capability you need.

Examples include:

  • McDonnell Douglas DC-8 71/73F
  • McDonnell Douglas DC-10F
  • Boeing 767-200/300F
  • Boeing 777-200F
  • Boeing 747-400F
