Apple Vacations Charter Air

  • Q: Is there a difference between charter and scheduled air packages?

    A: The term "charter" refers to aircraft used specifically to fly Apple Vacations customers to many major sun destinations. Our Charter flights are typically non-stop, and you have more time to enjoy in the destination. Typically, charter flight times are better, the package vacation price is less, plus hot meals are served on board with first run movies and better on-time performance overall. Plus, you avoid the hassle of connections and subsequent threat of lost baggage on scheduled service flights. All Apple Vacations charter flights also offer complimentary in-flight meals and soft drinks.

    Another benefit is that your luggage will be removed quickly from the aircraft and will be ready to board your resort transfer once you arrive. Apple Vacations strives to make your vacation experience the best possible, by managing the vacation process from the time you check-in at the airport, until you arrive at your resort. We are there to help you along the way until the time you arrive back home. Apple Vacations also offers scheduled air packages to every major sun destination. "Scheduled Air" refers to the transportation portion of your vacation that includes major airlines with schedules at various times and days of the week. Apple Vacations offers scheduled air packages from over 200 cities nationwide to those destinations where we do not offer non stop charter service; and also to complement our charter schedules to those destinations where we do offer charter service but need additional seats due to high demand. Scheduled air packages give you the most flexibility in departure and arrival times when traveling to a destination.

    Q: Which airline will I fly with for my Apple Vacation?

    A: That will vary depending on where you are departing from and your destination. Apple uses popular USA 3000 Airlines for most of it vacation flights. Additionally, Apple uses other major scheduled service airlines available for the flexibility of daily departures and daily returns.

    Q: What is the baggage allowance for air travel?

    A: CHECKED BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE IS UP TO TWO PIECES TOTALING 44 LBS PER TICKETED PASSENGER; 70 LBS PER TICKETED PASSENGER FOR EUROPEAN DESTINATIONS. Carry-on baggage is limited to one bag per person. The dimensions of the carry-on cannot exceed 45" linear. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT EXCESS/OVERSIZED BAGGAGE MAY BE DENIED AT CHECK-IN.
