Charter Flights

Another option for flying into Cancun or Puerto Vallarta is a charter flight. Often, wealthy individuals or tour companies will charter a private plane to fly directly into popular vacation destinations like these. When the flights aren’t full, they sometimes try to sell the extra seats to the public to cut down on the costs.

The rates charter flight seats are sold at fluctuate depending on the season and demand. Much of the time, the availability of these seats is not known until very near the departure date, sometimes only a few weeks or a few days out.
How do you find out about these tickets? Most of the time, they are sold through connected travel agents, so make sure to inquire with yours. There are also some sites online where extra charter flight seats are listed, such as on JetSuite’s Suite Deals page and Air Partner’s Empty Legs page.
