Private Charter Flights to and from Los Cabos

BY: LISA VAUGHAN

Contrary to widely-held belief, U.S. commercial airlines are still running on a reduced schedule to and from the San Jose del Cabo International Airport that services the state of Baja Sur.

Another option for flight travel to Los Cabos to consider is a private charter. The Private Terminal is located at the San Jose International Airport on the same level as Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 that services commercial airline carriers.

One private charter flight option is EvoJets. The team at EvoJets is experienced and dedicated to their clients and colleagues during this unprecedented period in private aviation. Their team is working around the clock, fielding non-stop inquiries and arranging as many flights as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have responded to COVID-19 with additional safety protocols. They ensure all operators are performing mandatory deep disinfecting of aircraft between passenger legs. Crew and passenger distancing is limited or there is no interaction between passengers and crew. There is also limited or no interaction between crew and airport personnel. There is vehicle ramp access for plane-side drops for passengers, airport permitting. In the airport, there is a reduced fixed-based operator (FBO) access. Passengers are allowed into FBO for essential services only. FBO is an organization granted the right by an airport to operate at the airport and provide aeronautical services such as fueling, hangaring, tie-down, parking, aircraft rental, aircraft maintenance, flight instruction, and similar services.
