JetSuite Expands Service To The Northeast
IRVINE, Calif., June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — JetSuite, the world’s most experienced Phenom operator, continues to expand with the announcement of new service in the Northeast and a revolutionary booking methodology offering guaranteed price quotes online. Since it’s 2006 fleet launch order for Embraer Phenoms, JetSuite now offers service to hundreds of airports throughout the Northeast’s major metropolitan areas such as New York, Washington D.C., Boston and Toronto. To date, JetSuite has flown over 20,000 Phenom hours, representing more than 24 million passenger seat miles.
“Our mission is to make private air travel accessible to more people than ever before,” explains JetSuite CEO Alex Wilcox. “Expanding our services to the Northeast brings us to the biggest market in the world.”
With its national expansion, JetSuite will capture discerning private jet customers throughout the Northeast, adding service to hundreds of airports including Teterboro (TEB), Martha’s Vineyard (MVY), Bedford (BED) and Westchester County (HPN). Exclusively flying a fleet of brand-new Embraer Phenom 100s, JetSuite operates the most spacious, fuel-efficient jet in its class, allowing the company to offer some of the most competitive fares in the industry while maintaining the luxury and benefits of private air travel.
Timed with the Northeast expansion, JetSuite is also announcing a revolutionary booking methodology on their completely redesigned website, making it the first private aviation company in history to quote a price online – and guarantee it. The new Jetsuite.com website introduces an unprecedented level of transparency and consumer-friendliness to the world of private air travel, “de-mystifying private jet pricing once and for all,” Wilcox adds.
JetSuite offers three levels of membership at low, hourly rates (see table below) to which airport fees are added based on elements including local cost of fuel, fixed-base operator fees, government charges and the average cost of positioning to the airport. Consumers will be able to easily compare various fees on the new JetSuite.com to determine the best airports for their trips. JetSuite’s lowest airport fees can be found at low cost airports in the Southwest and Northeast United States. As the company continues to grow, airport fees will go down in other areas.
