As a result, we have closed all global charter destinations through May 4, 2020.

We are working diligently to assist all our customers. If you have a reserved charter departing within the next 6 weeks, rest assured we are reaching out to you directly. If your charter departs outside of the next 6 weeks, we ask that you refrain from calling at this time so that we can assist customers with immediate needs.
