New York, NY (PRWEB) August 1, 2007
Remote Lands, Inc. of New York and XJET Ltd. of Bangkok, have announced a strategic alliance that will allow U.S. travelers to experience Asia in the comfort and privacy of a private jet. Together, the two Asia-focused companies will take advantage of the emerging trend of private jet travel by providing turnkey solutions for a discerning clientele to the world's largest and most dynamic continent. Clients can pick up their private jets in Asian hub cities such as Hong Kong or Bangkok after flying commercially across the Pacific. This can be a much more cost-effective solution than flying privately all the way from the U.S. to Asia.
Private jet travel and tourism to Asia are two rapidly growing trends that Remote Lands and XJET plan to exploit. Remote Lands has noticed a marked increase in client interest for travel by private aircraft and are currently arranging journeys via Gulfstream, Challenger, Boeing Business Jet and other equivalent aircrafts. Jeff Dunne, BBJ sales director for Asia, has commented on the future of Asian aviation, stating that "The expected annual air traffic growth rate of 7.4% is one the highest of any region in the world."
XJET is the fastest-growing private jet charter network in Asia. By early 2008, the company will offer up to 25 private jets from bases including Shanghai, Taipei, Macau, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. Their fleet will include light to heavy private jets, including executive airliners for junket-sized groups. Remote Lands is America's only luxury travel designer focused exclusively on Asia and private jet travel in the region. The company specializes in arranging extraordinary experiences in magical destinations and provides insider access to exceptional people and exclusive events.
"Remote Lands strengthens our offerings by allowing us to provide full-service luxury solutions including totally unique activities and experiences throughout Asia," stated Les Merszei, XJET's Managing Director. "We look forward to winning and retaining a very lucrative client base including Remote Lands' network of very high-net worth clients."
"We are very excited to be joining forces with XJET, with one of the largest growing fleets of private jets in Asia," noted Catherine Heald, CEO & Co-Founder of Remote Lands. "Together we intend to dominate the American market for private jet travel to Asia. For those busy professionals who can only spare a few weeks at a time for their vacation, but want to see and experience as much of Asia as possible, private jet travel is the answer."
"There are many fascinating and very remote places that can only be reached easily by air, unless you are willing to endure long and arduous journeys," said Jay Tindall, COO & Co-Founder of Remote Lands. "Private jets can take you directly to far-flung places in China, Indonesia, Mongolia, Bhutan and throughout Asia, rapidly and efficiently."
