This service will enable local residents to go back and forth from Nashville or Knoxville for UT games or students wanting to come home for the weekend this winter.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
Social Flights™ announced today that they will begin regularly scheduled round trip flights to and from Nashville TN for $50. Given the cost of gasoline and the value of time it becomes a better option to fly to these destinations than it is to drive. Bypass the airline terminal and fly on a private aircraft for less than the cost of a commercial airline ticket. The Fixed Base Operation which a private aircraft flies out of is more like the lobby of a hotel, than an airport. Flights can be, arranged on the Social Flights website, http://www.socialflights.com.
Social Flights is authorized by the Department of Transportation to sell individual seats for scheduled charter flights through qualified direct air carriers under their Part 380 certificate.
Social Flights CEO, Jay Deragon stated “We are launching the round trip to and from Nashville or Knoxville in a British Aerospace Jetstream aircraft. This service will enable local residents to go back and forth from Nashville or Knoxville for UT games or students wanting to come home for the weekend this winter. These flights will also serve parties interested in holiday getaways within the scenic areas of Knoxville or Nashville.”
Allen Howell, CEO of Corporate Flight Management in Smyrna, TN stated “CFM is pleased to partner with Social Flights to offer scheduled charter service to communities such as Knoxville and elsewhere. Working with Social Flights we will be looking to expand service to other markets such as Johnson City, TN and Destin, FL or other cities where air service is limited. By using Social Flights technology any underserved market can now create air service on demand.”
Federal budget cuts and constant disruption within the traditional airline industry has created a loss of air service to many communities throughout the USA. Social Flights has created a business model to provide local communities with cost effective air service alternatives anywhere in the USA.
Jay Deragon said, “Technology is disrupting many business models and traditional air services are ripe for change. Social Flights innovation not only changes traditional business models but also re-invents the entire air travel experience. Private aviation provides a much higher quality and improved value experience that we intend on bringing to the many rather than the few.”
Social Flights currently has over 10,000 registered flyers, 90 operators throughout the USA which represent over 500 aircraft available for use. Social Flights has built a technology that enables people and communities to self-aggregate and form their own air service on demand. Social Flights also offers one-way specials, affinity group charter and is expanding internationally
