Plan European run, following light aircraft's journey? (7,6)


I believe the answer is:

charter flight

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'aircraft's journey?' is the definition.
(flight made by a chartered aircraft)

'plan european run following light' is the wordplay.
'plan' becomes 'chart' (charting is a kind of planning).
'european run following' becomes 'erf' (this might be a standard abbreviation which I don't know about).
'chart'+'erf'+'light'='CHARTER FLIGHT'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for charter flight that I've seen before include "Non-regular air service" , "Air journey arranged for a group" , "Trip in a hired plane" , "Unscheduled journey by air" , "part of holiday package, perhaps" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
