XOJET Announces $25,000 “All In” Transcontinental Rates
XOJET, the private aviation company that has led the way in providing simplified pricing as part of its commitment to outstanding customer service, announced it will now offer fixed-price rates starting at $25,000 for one-way transcontinental flights between preferred airports serving major U.S. cities including: New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco and San Diego. Fixed-price rates for flights between more than 4,000 additional airport pairs serving designated East and West coast metro areas are also available.
The "all-in" rate includes ground transportation in both the departure and arrival cities, catering and unlimited in-flight worldwide calling. Clients will not pay repositioning fees, hourly rates that can compound with weather or air traffic delays or face fuel surcharges, as is common in the industry. In addition, with XOJET's all-new fleet of Citation X jets, the fastest civilian aircraft available, New York to Los Angeles flights average under four hours and thirty minutes.
"Private jet travel is supposed to make flying simple and stressless, yet pricing for private aviation is often complicated and confusing, with an array of middle men, add-on fees, mark-ups and hidden charges," said Adam Komack, chief marketing officer of XOJET. "Our fixed-price transcontinental rate with a bundled service package provides direct, simple and transparent pricing for travel on XOJET's brand new fleet of company owned and operated business jets. Simplified pricing is one of many examples of XOJET's commitment to delivering the best possible private aviation experience - from the moment our clients book their flights to the time they arrive at their final destinations."
Preferred airports at which the $25,000 rate is available include: Teterboro (New York), Northeast Philadelphia (Philadelphia), Bedford (Boston), Manassas (Washington, D.C.), Van Nuys (Los Angeles), Henderson (Las Vegas), Oakland (San Francisco), Carlsbad (San Diego), and Deer Valley (Scottsdale/Phoenix).
"XOJET's relationships with preferred airports and fixed base operators make private transcontinental flights as cost effective as possible and minimize ground time and air traffic delays," added Komack.
Even lower rates are offered on late evening flights. Rates are subject to availability, and other conditions apply. Federal excise taxes are additional.
Founded in 2006, XOJET has quickly become one of the world's fastest growing private aviation companies, built on a unique business model that combines private jet ownership, leasing and on-demand travel and a singular focus on providing the highest level of customer service at every point of the client's experience. Backed by TPG, a leading global private investment firm with over $50 billion of capital under management, XOJET recently secured $2.46 billion for fleet expansion.
XOJET offers an all-new fleet of Citation X planes - the fastest civilian aircraft available - and fewer members per jet in its Fleet Exchange Membership program, providing for guaranteed availability and unprecedented customer satisfaction. The company's award-winning, in-house safety and maintenance program rivals the world's best commercial airlines, having earned the highest ranking in four key categories - more than any other operator - from Aviation Research Group. XOJET's fleet is expected to reach 127 aircraft worth $3.1 billion by 2012.
XOJET has also been named a Robb Report "Best of Private Aviation" winner, one of Inc. Magazine's fastest growing companies, and among the best places to work in the Bay Area. For more information, visit www.xojet.com or call 888 759-6538.
