Had a look earlier and they said they will have details on all the qualifiers soon. It could come in very handy for Georgia depending on the prices

If they get organised and come up with trip details in plenty of time they should fill a few planes for each trip like Passport used to do. If they leave it to the last minute they will pick up late bookers and day trippers.

If they charter a flight to Georgia, surely they could offer a package before schedule flights are released.
Hope they offer a 2 or 3 night package

I am going to guess a charter to Georgia will be at least £700.

It was the same again in 2013 but hopefully the Black can get a bit closer in 2014!

Did I read on here its about £60,000 to charter a flight.

 

Works out about £300pp on a 200 seater.  :blink:

I understand that it not only depends on how far you travel but the parking fees for the aeroplane at the destination airport. If a plane has to sit about for three days waiting for the return journey the price can become too expensive for a charter.
Think that's why an in and out trip like the one on offer to Poland may be the way forward,but I reckon no one would want to travel all the way out to Georgia for a day trip.

The charter company would look to have the plane working... Think more like a City link bus wi wings. Drop off and pick up 3 days later. 


i believe only Smarties have the answer..............

That was my thinking but when we went to ukraine with passport in 2006, the plane stayed at the airport.

The reason i know this was that we went out drinking with the cabin crew.

Good point. We all tend to plan out the booking of trips and await flights etc becoming available. If they could be in ahead of this it would make everything so much easier.
