Certified Charter Broker

The ARGUS Certified Charter Broker Program was designed to identify the very best Air Charter Brokers in the industry.

As a broker, when you subscribe to the Certified Broker Program, you will receive an independent, unbiased, fact-based assessment that confirms you meet or exceed industry best practices. Certified brokers must have documented policies and procedures in place which adhere to applicable regulations, industry best practices, appropriate insurance coverage, and management of the fiscal responsibilities inherent to this line of business.

As part of the ARGUS Certified Broker Certification, a broker will provide documented proof of these requirements and will undergo an on-site audit, once every two years, utilizing our Charter Broker Standard to prove their compliance with industry best practices and applicable regulations.

As a customer, if you are using an ARGUS Certified Broker to arrange your charter, you can be assured that they will have a robust due diligence program to select safe operators that will meet your needs for your flight.
