The on-demand private jet charter broker is part of Directional Aviation’s OneSky group that includes Flexjet, Sentient Jet and PrivateFly
FXAIR says the on-demand private jet broker is meeting the expectations it set when it launched at the end of July. In its first month, the sister company to Flexjet, Sentient Jet, and PrivateFly said it arranged private jet charter flights to 125 destinations carrying over 800 passengers. It also signed up over 40 clients for its FXAIR Aviator membership program which entails a deposit of $100,000.
“We knew there was a strong business case for a premium operator to enter the charter market, so we felt validated by the high level of interest and bookings in our first month,” said Gregg Slow, FXAIR’s President.
Top origin airports include Teterboro Airport, serving New York City and Palm Beach. Leading arrival destinations were Van Nuys in Los Angeles and Jackson Hole.
FXAIR offers a coast-to-coast flat rate for Aviator members. For flights beginning and ending in states on a U.S. Atlantic or Pacific coastline, clients can fly on a super midsized cabin aircraft for a flat rate of $31,900 when they book a week or more in advance.
FXAIR replaced PrivateFly in the U.S. market, focusing on the premium segment of the on-demand charter market.
“While the rest of the charter industry is focused on the cheapest price and simply processing a transaction, FXAIR is committed to learning about its clients and sourcing the best aircraft for the best price for their mission,” Slow said.
