What are Charter Flights?

I've taken charter flights a few times and can recommend them if you are looking to save money and willing to put up with the possibility of being inconvenienced.

For ease of illustration, I will use Homeric Tours out of NY who is one of the larger charter companies specializing in travel to Greece. Homeric offers tours, cruises and flights on commercial airlines to Greece. The also offer Charters. They have set up a contract with a company that owns the planes(last year it was North American Air, before that TowerAir and they have a new company that they lease the plane from this year-but I'm not sure who it is).

Homeric now has a plane-and they don't have to worry about flying it or maintaining it-just getting people on it). Their flights are scheduled to fly once a week in each direction from June to August, but charters can run as many times a week, or for the full year....depending on the demand.

So that is all a charter is.... a plane leased by a company to fly to the destination of it's choice.

How are charters different?
