We are able to save our clients 20-50% on private jet charter compared to industry leading jet travel cards using our proprietary auction system.
Portsmouth, NH (PRWEB) May 27, 2010
Today Charter Auction announces its strong sales growth for private jet charter out of New England, particularly in areas such as Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Sales on these two islands are up 38% over last year for the first quarter of this year and are up 50% for the month of May. This trend is expected to continue throughout the summer as businessmen and affluent clients return from their southern winter retreats.
“Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are two of our best departure locations. We have really focused our efforts at being competitive with these markets and the efforts have paid off. Sales have been strong and we expect them to get even better as our clients return to their summer homes,” says Brandon Ferrante, Director of Customer Service at CharterAuction.com.
Charter Auction has attributed part of this boom to its strong affiliations with both NBTA and ASTA. “Our ability to build a relationship with travel agents and travel planners has broadened our exposure and given us a enormous boost in lead generation.” Travel agents and travel planners rarely venture into the private jet charter market on behalf of clients because it’s expensive and complicated. Charter Auction has pioneering this relationship by making the system easy and efficient. Now travel professionals can get 6 competitive quotes in 6 easy steps!
“This strong sales growth has been great. We have focused our attention at getting our clients the best possible pricing using our aircraft locator technology in conjunction with a reverse-style auction. It’s a system that no one else in the industry utilized and it’s been very effective at allowing us to offer the most competitive pricing in the business,” says Brandon.
Martha’s Vineyard is the third largest island off the East Coast of the United States and is home to more than 15,000 year-round residents. The island is considered one of the ultimate summer destinations as the population swells to well more than 70,000 people during the summer months. Martha’s Vineyard can only be accessed by boat or aircraft, via Martha’s Vineyard Airport, making it a premium location for Hollywood celebrities and the wealthy tourists.
Nantucket is located 30 miles south of Cape Cod. The island is another unique summer colony. The standing population of 10,000 people soars to approximately 50,000 people during peak summer months. This island is also home to many of the rich and famous. This island is serviced by the Nantucket Memorial Airport on the southern most part of the island.
Charter Auction is an online private charter marketplace where business and luxury aircraft are sought out using a revolutionary aircraft locator technology. These private jet operators are then entered into a proprietary auction system in which independent operators compete for each charter request. Clients are then presented with up to 6 quotes in order for them to choose which aircraft, at which cost, is right for them. Charter Auction has also founded its own safety check system, SAFEPASS, which exceeds the regulations set by Part 135a of the Federal Aviation Administration. This allows Charter Auction to offer great prices, without ever compromising safety.
