The fixed rate jet card program is the first from the on-demand charter broker and can cut travel time to the slopes by half, adding two extra days of skiing
For a guaranteed fixed price of €6000, groups can fly between London and Geneva in a six-seat Nextant 400XTi, any date or time they choose. Travelers will benefit be able to cut their travel time to the slopes by more than half compared to flying commercially. The fixed rate program runs December 1, 2018, through the end of February targeting the popular winter route for both business and leisure travelers. PrivateFly says it hopes by offering the fixed rate, it will draw first-time private fliers.
The fixed price offer of €6000 (Euros) applies to flights between London Luton and Geneva, using a Nextant 400XTi private jet, seating up to six passengers. This represents over a 30% discount on usual market pricing, which according to PrivateFly would be at least €8500 to €10000 each way for this or an equivalent aircraft.
Customers heading to the slopes can also opt for a private helicopter transfer from Geneva airport, directly to their ski resort, which can save hours of ground transfer time. From Geneva to Meribel for example, this would be €2,350 (working out at an additional €392 per person for a group of six).
Adam Twidell, CEO and co-founder of PrivateFly said, “Private jet pricing between London and Geneva usually fluctuates over the winter, due to high demand and lower availability. But we are excited to have secured exclusive pricing on a fleet of Nextant 400XTi aircraft for our customers, which will cost €6000 each way – whatever date or time the customer wants to fly.”
He continued, “We know uncertainty around pricing can be a major barrier to new private jet users entering the market. By making the price clear and simple and offering this discount for a limited period, we’re hoping we can introduce new customers to the benefits of private aviation, as well as offering excellent value to those who’ve flown before.”
PrivateFly says the fixed priced flights will include the usual benefits of on-demand private jet charter including scheduling based on your preference of departure time, a 15-minute check-in; use of the private terminal, plus catering and drinks included onboard.
Private jet customers can be on the slopes in Meribel or Val Thorens in just two hours and 15 minutes after arriving at the airport in London if adding a helicopter transfer or under 4 hours if traveling from Geneva by road. This compares to a best-case scenario of six to seven hours by an airline.” For more information or to book visit www.privatefly.com/winter6000
