Air taxi

An air taxi is a for-hire passenger or cargo aircraft which operates on an on-demand basis.

In the United States, air taxi and air charter operations are governed by Part 135 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR), unlike the larger scheduled air carriers which are governed by more stringent standards of FAR Part 121.
