A Lesson on Charter Rates....
Should you plan on flying out to Bimini (or any other destination) and
returning on the same day, the aircraft will stay on the ground in
Bimini (or any other destination) for up to one hour and thirty minutes
free of charge.
you desire that the aircraft remains on the ground in Bimini (or any
other destination) beyond the "free" one hour and thirty minutes, with prior arrangement,
the aircraft can remain on the ground for up to 4 hours at our waiting
rate of $100.00 per hour. At the conclusion of the four hour
period (after one hour and thirty minutes "free" and the two and one
half hours at $100.00 per hour) the aircraft will depart for Ft.
Lauderdale with or without you!
Should you desire the aircraft to wait on the ground longer than 4
hours, aircraft schedule permitting and with pre-arrangement, it will be
necessary to charter the aircraft for the whole day at the minimum
daily rate equivalent to the basic charter rate for the aircraft "times"
4 hours, plus fuel surcharges for the actual flight time, plus ground
handling fees and expenses up to the four hours. If actual flight time
exceeds the four hour daily minimum, you will be responsible for all
flight time and expenses in excess of the four hour minimum.
This would allow you the time you need to fly to the island, conduct your business, and return to Ft. Lauderdale on your schedule, and the only requirement is that the aircraft must arrive in
Bimini after official sunrise (Nassau time) and depart Bimini for Ft.
Lauderdale before official sunset (Nassau time).
an alternative to paying the minimum daily rate, should you merely wish
to be picked up at a later time that day, or on another day, you will be required to schedule and pay for two separate charter flights.
People who travel out the the islands on one day and travel back to the U.S. on another day require two separate charters.
