It can be surprisingly affordable, the difference in cost between a private jet and a full fare airline ticket grows smaller as the number of passengers increases.

Seabrook, NH (PRWEB) November 21, 2012

The current cost environment of high fuel and airfares can take a toll on any business. In addition to the tremendous time and productivity benefits private jet travel can offer businesses, executives might be surprised to learn that chartered flights can also better their bottom lines. Chartering is now an affordable alliterative for many companies.

Private Jet Services Group, one of the three largest private aviation charter brokerages in North America, enables organizations to fly groups of up to 72 passengers in better than first class cabins for less than comparable tickets in business and first class on scheduled airlines.

A look at recent business class airfares compared to the cost of chartered planes showed across-the-board savings for groups flying chartered planes near capacity. Savings increased dramatically for overseas flights.

“It can be surprisingly affordable,” says Private Jet Services Group CEO Greg Raiff, adding that the difference in cost between a private jet and a full fare airline ticket grows smaller as the number of passengers increases.

The majority of PJS Group clients are corporations, whose executives “recognize the cost of their transportation is far exceeded by the cost of failure,” Raiff says. And in a world where time is money, chartered planes can add significant value by eliminating hours spent waiting in airports for flights and baggage, unnecessary connecting flights, and even travel to bigger airports that may be out of the way. Private flights also allow travelers to conduct business in the air, in complete privacy.

PJS Group clients receive the benefit of the company’s exclusive relationships with top charter airline owners, a large inventory of empty leg opportunities, and experienced flight analysts, who work with clients to ensure the best value for every single trip.

“When we first engage with a prospective client, we sit down and spend time analyzing how they’ve flown in the past,” Raiff says, “and we’ll put together a report on the state of the industry along with an analysis of the supply of that kind of airplane in the marketplace, then make a recommendation as to how they could fly more efficiently.”

Private Jet Services Group offers clients what it calls a “simple, pay-as-you-fly model: no membership fees, monthly maintenance charges, or quirky fuel surcharges.” Businesses who contract with PJS Group are offered one all-inclusive quotation for each flight.

“The people who gravitate towards transparency are the people who really gravitate towards us,” Raiff says.
