Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) March 01, 2013
Congressional budget cuts are expected to negatively impact commercial air travel in the coming months, resulting in fewer available flights, higher prices and more delays. Charter Flight Group is offering an alternative to commercial flights by introducing affordable options for executive business travelers. To help alleviate the potential travel crisis, Charter Flight Group is offering a 20% discount on private air charters through the end of May on routes that may involve FAA tower closures, including Santa Monica Tower (SMO), Boca Raton (BCT), Gary/Chicago International (GYY), Trenton Mercer (TTN), Ithaca Tomkins Regional (ITH), and other affected small and midsize airports.
Outgoing Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood warned last week that pending federal cuts, known as a sequester, could cripple air travel if Congress allows them to go forward on March 1st. Anticipated furlough days and air traffic control tower closures would result in commercial flight cancellations, and long delays on the tarmac. Further repercussions from TSA cutbacks would increase security checkpoint and U.S. Customs clearance times.
“We’re encouraging businesses and individuals to investigate jet charter options so they won’t be left stranded if Congress fails to act on these looming budget cuts.” says Charter Flight Group partner, Scott Biondo. “Executives need the ability to fly in and out of cities promptly to meet their tight travel schedules. These FAA and TSA budget cuts are detrimental to businesses. Without doubt, these delays will negatively impact company profits. In response, Charter Flight Group is creating solutions to the budget crisis by lowering private jet charter costs, so that we may better assist displaced business travelers.”
Charter Flight Group serves all airports available to commercial carriers, as well as 6,000 more U.S. and international airports. Its aircraft are maintained in strict accordance with FAA standards and are crewed by professional pilots with superior safety ratings. Private flights can accommodate as few as one or as many as 50 passengers, without the hassle of commercial airline boarding delays. In addition to discounts in tower closure markets, Charter Flight Group is also offering a 15% discount on private flights in and out of these popular charter locations: Van Nuys (VNY) to/from Teterboro (TEB), Van Nuys (VNY) to/from Las Vegas (LAS), San Francisco (SFO) to/from Teterboro (TEB) and Teterboro (TEB) to Miami (MIA).
