Why fly charter to the Bahamas?

Choosing to charter a private flight for your party has many advantages over typical “pay-per-seat” airlines:

  • Chartering your own aircraft can be less expensive! With a party of 6-9 passengers, the cost can be shared among your party.
  • No additional baggage fees…you are only limited by the total weight of passengers plus luggage!
  • Shipping Household Goods!?  Many of customers will ship items to our office (or personally drop them off). We’ll store them for you until your departure date.  We will even have seats removed, if needed, to carry larger items over for you!
  • No check-in lines or security shake down!  Our lobby is extremely nice with free coffee and small, but great restaurant!
  • Tailored departure times = more vacation time!
  • FREE Parking! There is not charge and no limit for free parking.
  • FREE shuttle transfer between Fort Lauderdale International Terminal and Sheltair where our planes will be waiting for you ready to go!
  • Personal care and attention from our staff!  We take calls nights and weekends!  Sometimes customers decide to extend their trip in the Bahamas a day or more ~ we’ll accommodate this with no additional charge, schedule permitting!
  • Complimentary cooler of Coronas, sodas, and water!
  • No possibility of lost luggage!
  • Pet-Friendly!! Pets are passengers, too!!  Air Flight Charters is a pet friendly airline! Your pet rides with you in the cabin!  See our FAQ Page for international paperwork requirements.
  • When you arrive at your destination, you’ll use the private flight facility, not the airline terminal. No waiting or standing in line!
  • Medical Emergencies ~ if you have a medical emergency in the Bahamas, we can launch a plane short-notice to come pick you up early!

Our lobby at SheltAir Aviation offers:

  • Jet Runway Café – hot/cold sandwiches, soups and salads, as well as a daily hot meal special (Open Monday – Friday)
  • Complimentary coffee and popcorn while your luggage is being loaded.
  • Duty free goods to passengers traveling outside of the United States.

Additional Services we provide:

  • Car service – Let us make your transportation arrangements for you. We have reliable and safe car/limo services that we use routinely.
