Helicopter Charters With Air Charter Service

With more than 30 years of experience and unrivalled access to aircraft throughout the UK, we are experts at providing rapid helicopter charter solutions tailored to your unique requirements.

When to charter a helicopter

Perfectly suited to business and leisure travel, helicopter charters offer flexibility not commonly found with fixed-wing aircraft. Intelligently designed and highly adaptable, helicopter charters are ideal for point-to-point travel, getting you directly to your desired destination.

Helicopters can land and depart from remote UK locations, busy city centres like London, and crowded or otherwise difficult-to-reach destinations. Helipads, hotels, private properties and even yachts are all accessible, so whether you’re travelling for a holiday, conference or event, our helicopter charter specialists can get you there quickly and in style.



Skip the traffic and arrive in style for an event with a helicopter charter. From the Cheltenham Festival to Glastonbury, we can arrange a helicopter to collect you from a location near you and take you right to the heart of the action.

Take a look at some estimated helicopter charter costs for some upcoming events and book early to ensure you beat the rush. If you don’t see your event listed, we can still get you there. Simply contact one of our team with your requirements and we’ll take care of the rest.

How much does a helicopter charter cost?

The cost of a helicopter charter is subject to a variety of factors, such as the size of the helicopter, the length of the flight, and when you’re looking to fly. Naturally, the more passengers, the higher the cost. Contact our helicopter charter team to receive a no-obligation quote.

How many passengers can travel in a helicopter?

The most popular helicopter to charter in the UK is an AW109 twin-engine helicopter which can accommodate up to six passengers. We can also source an H145 or AW139, which can fly up to nine passengers. If you have more passengers than that, we’ll arrange for multiple helicopters to fly the same route.

What is the luggage allowance for a helicopter?

This depends on the type of helicopter and the number of passengers flying. As a rule of thumb, we advise one 10kg soft-sided bag per person. This can be increased if, for example, you have a six-passenger helicopter with only one passenger.

What happens if there’s bad weather?

Helicopters are subject to weather but they aren’t just for sunny days. Their ability to operate in adverse weather depends on several factors, including the severity of the conditions and the type of aircraft. For example, twin-engine helicopters are equipped with advanced navigation systems which can better handle challenging weather situations. Our team will keep you informed of the weather in the days leading up to, and on the day of, your flight and will work with you to rearrange if necessary.
