Private charter platform PrivateFly, a Directional Aviation company, has appointed Gregg Slow as president for the Americas

The former C-Suite executive with XOJET recently left as acquirer Vista Global merged it with the former JetSmarter

Business aviation veteran Gregg Slow has joined PrivateFly’s senior leadership team to head the U.S. division of the company, which operates from a U.S. headquarters in Boston and a sales office in Fort Lauderdale, with further sales teams based across the country.

The U.S. now accounts for half of PrivateFly’s global flight sales for the U.K.-based provider, according to the press announcement.

Slow brings 19 years of business aviation experience to the newly created role, most recently from his seven-year tenure at XOJET where, as chief client officer, he built the commercial client-facing offering and assisted in the company’s acquisition by Vista Global. Earlier this summer the VistaJet parent merged XOJET and JetSmarter to form XO.

Air Partner adds fixed-rate, guaranteed availability transatlantic jet card pricing

The jet card broker is launching fixed-rate, guaranteed availability between the U.S. and Europe

U.K.-based charter broker Air Partner will announce later today it has signed up six charter operators who will provide more than 50 long-range private jets for new fixed-rate, guaranteed availability jet card pricing between the U.S. and Europe.

With a buy-in starting at just 10 hours, and the ability to refund unused funds, the new offering is likely to have a wide appeal for its target market, particularly travelers who want set pricing but don’t fly enough to make multi-year commitments to key competitors for the route such as NetJets, Flexjet and Vistajet.

The new cross the pond rates connect Air Partner’s existing fixed-rate, guaranteed availability primary service areas for its jet card customers covering the U.S., Caribbean, and Europe. Air Partner is one of the few jet card programs offering fixed rates for flights within both the U.S and Europe.

“Over the past few years, we’ve noticed increasing demand for an improved transatlantic option to better connect our clients in the United States with Europe,” said David McCown, president of Air Partner U.S. “We’re dedicated to continuously creating innovative travel solutions to best serve our customers, and we are pleased to today become the first jet membership program to offer a fixed Trans-Atlantic rate.”

Transatlantic jet card pricing

Beyond a cost of $15,650 per hour with a seven-hour segment minimum, there is a 15% roundtrip discount based on an average of at least four flight hours per day.
