As Surf Air Europe launches, Private Jet Card Comparisons can confirm that Jeff Potter has left the U.S. unit where he was CEO of the private flight membership company, which has popularized the single turboprop Pilatus PC-12.

Private Jet by the seat comes to Europe
As previously reported, Surf Air Europe last week launched on June 23rd with a single route from London’s Luton Airport to Ibiza, Spain. London to Cannes starts on July 4, and after that Zurich looks like it will join the network in September. The U.S. by the seat private aviation membership provider has been operating since 2013. This demonstrates Surf Air’s confidence in expanding this service into Europe.
Surf Air has launched in Europe, and it has a big opportunity, particularly for Londoners, but it will need to get its act together to make sure it fulfills its potential. Its first flight was last Friday on June 23, according to several reports.
