As used in this part, unless the context otherwise requires:

(2) The advertising states that the charter is open only to members of the organization referred to in subparagraph (1) of this paragraph, or only to members of a subgroup thereof.

This part shall apply to all air carriers (other than Alaskan air carriers and air carriers certificated for supplemental air service) who hold currently effective certificates of public convenience and necessity issued by the Board pursuant to section 401 of the act. § 207.3 Scope of authorization.

Charter trips and other special services may be performed by air carriers, subject, however, to the limitations and regulations set forth in the part.
