Year In Review 2023

We look back at our most popular stories and news items from a remarkable year of travel

What a ride! It was an amazing year in review 2023 for Global Air Charters thanks to the dedication of our incredible staff and the loyalty of our wonderful customers worldwide.

It was a year that was characterized by many setbacks in the industry: volatile business practices from the industry’s largest operators, more frequent air traffic control delays, and the continued nuisance of illegal charter companies.

Despite it all, Global Air Charters opened several new avenues for steady growth in 2023, including new partnerships with a luxury Caribbean concierge service and two different safety standards alliances, and the launch of our own Part 145 Repair Station.
