We designed JetCombo.com to give the traveler the benefit of the low rates offered on major airline routes and the convenience of virtual door to door service, as the general aviation component can literally pick up or deliver travelers to their neighborhood airport.
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 6, 2007
BusinessJet Class announced today the launch of JetCombo.com, a new Internet site where passengers can book both commercial flights and private airplanes. A true enhancement over current booking processes, JetCombo.com allows users to inter-connect airline and general aviation flights providing the user the benefits of both and opening up the opportunity for travelers to access 5000 airports nationwide instead of just 500 commercial hubs.
Michael Thomas, Chairman of BusinessJet Class and a twelve year veteran in the on-line travel space declared, "We designed JetCombo.com to give the traveler the benefit of the low rates offered on major airline routes and the convenience of virtual door to door service, as the general aviation component can literally pick up or deliver travelers to their neighborhood airport."
Founder and President of BusinessJet Class, George J. Khairallah, pointed out, "Currently if someone wants to travel to a destination that is say 200 miles from the nearest commercial airport, the last leg of the trip will likely have to be a four hour drive. Now, with JetCombo.com, a traveler need only enter the city name of their true departure and destination points. JetCombo.com will then offer the optimal routing by combining commercial and private."
This is a product for the "Next Generation" traveler who defines value with a triple bottom line: save money, save time, and protect the environment. In addition to offering very low airline fares and private charter rates and enabling passengers to save significant amounts of time otherwise spent in airport lounges or waiting for flights, JetCombo.com adopted the unique strategy to display the carbon emissions for every flight. Customers can purchase optional carbon credits with their flight to make their trip "carbon neutral."
"We all know that sending 70% of US travelers through 30 airport hubs is not a sustainable solution", continued Khairallah. ''More than wasting travelers' precious time, Air Traffic congestion burns thousand of gallons of fuel needlessly. JetCombo.com utilizes a database of aircraft and operators that includes thousands of small jets and hundreds of small props capable of serving rural areas with small airports, at lower cost and lower environmental impact than airliners. This provides an excellent opportunity to establish feeder services, especially on short routes where it has become difficult to sustain adequate frequency of scheduled operations.''
''We have a long way to go to achieve our vision for the future of air travel,'' said Thomas. "This project is collaborative in nature. We are offering solid distribution technology as a starting point. Our next step is to find the right airlines and industry partners to make the operational aspects of this product as seamless as they should be."
