Turboprop aircraft are perhaps the most economical option for charter airplanes. Due to their lower cruising speeds, turboprops are slower than jets, though this disadvantage is offset by their ability to land almost anywhere. Additionally, the ubiquity of turboprops means that travelers can often avoid the unnecessary (and costly) repositioning of a larger aircraft.
