New York, NY (PRWEB) February 21, 2008
Imagine traveling anywhere in the world without the hassles of flight cancellations, inconvenient layovers or long delays. JetCombo.com (http://www.jetcombo.com) introduces a revolutionary and seamless way to fly that minimizes the travails of air travel and maximizes efficiency. With the use of new technologies, JetCombo.com taps into the broadest selection of private and commercial air-transportation services, allowing users to combine both for the optimal travel experience.
"In the U.S., the airline hub-and-spoke system jams over 450 million passengers a year through 30 airports, forcing millions of people to sit and wait for the 'next flight', sometimes for hours on end," says co-founder George Khairallah. "JetCombo.com redistributes air traffic to the other 5,400 public airports in the U.S. - so that flying from Groton to Greenville is an actual possibility - utilizing different types of airplanes and new options in a way that is both practical and efficient."
Mining a database of aircrafts and operators, including thousands of small jets and hundreds of small props capable of serving rural areas with small airports, JetCombo.com opens the skies for travelers, combining private and first-class commercial jet service in a single itinerary. Users simply enter the city name of their true departure and destination points, and Jetcombo.com delivers the most efficient route.
With a nod to environmental efficiency, JetCombo.com is the only online booking service to display the carbon emissions for every flight. Customers also have the unique option to purchase carbon credits to make their flight "carbon neutral." JetCombo.com also offers users the option to offset the unavoidable emissions caused by their flights by contributing to projects that reduce an equivalent amount of pollution. At http://nextgen.jetcombo.com, JetCombo.com provides an open platform for users to discuss and debate current issues in the aviation community, as well as access the most recent aviation news and statistics.
"Similar to cell phones, which originally were priced at thousands of dollars, this new concept in travel is following a trajectory from the exclusive to the commonplace," says Khairallah. "The fact is that 98 percent of the population lives within twenty miles of an airport. What is considered only a luxury travel option will soon become available to all."
JetCombo.com is the brainchild of George Khairallah and Michael Thomas, both seasoned technology and travel service experts who have proven track records in the online and offline industry. Khairallah began in air travel at a large airline wholesale travel agency and started his own online booking company, BusinessJet Class. A native of West Africa, Thomas was also a first mover in online travel services, founding OneTravel.com in 1995, Fare.Net in 2005 and BookingWiz.com shortly thereafter. With JetCombo.com, Khairallah and Thomas combine their expertise in a shared vision that opens air travel to all rural areas, providing the convenience of virtual door-to-door service.
