By booking an aircraft through AU Aviation Passengers agree to these Terms and Conditions.

A charter quote is not a confirmed reservation. All reservations are on a first come first serve basis and subject to aircraft and crew availability at the time of booking. Upon acceptance of terms and conditions listed herein, this document becomes a legal and binding contract between the two parties.

Daily Minimum Charge for domestic charters is 2.0 hours per day. Quote reflects estimated trip times. Actual trip times may vary due to air traffic control, weather, or other factors and will be charged accordingly. This quote does not include additional charges for catering, ground transportation, ramp fees, de-icing, hangar, flight phone, additional pilot standby time or any other miscellaneous charges, which will be billed at actual cost.

All prices quoted herein are accurate on the date quoted, are subject to change without notice, and are valid for 30 days. A credit card is required to confirm the aircraft and crew for requested dates of charter. Payment in full is required upon reservation of all international trips as well as trips that quote a total cost of more than $10,000. For all other trips, full payment is due one business day in advance of the trip. Domestic trips must be canceled 24 hours prior, and international trips 72 hours prior, to scheduled departure time, or the customer will be billed 50 percent of the estimated quote. If incurred, all additional expenses such as listed above will be billed to the client.

The Flight Quote is based on fuel costs as of the booking date. AU Aviation reserves the right to charge a fuel surcharge amount due to any increases in cost of fuel between the booking confirmation and the departure date. Passenger shall pay AU Aviation on demand any such difference in amount of the increase in fuel cost.

AU Aviation reserves the right to cancel any flight due to weather conditions which can only be determined the day of the flight.

Your aircraft has been scheduled for a specific departure time. Please be aware that the aircraft may be booked prior to your departure and after your scheduled arrival time.

A surcharge may apply for the replacement aircraft. If a substitute aircraft is not found within 12 hours of the booking being declined, both parties will be released from their obligations under these Terms and Conditions
