BLUE STAR JETS REVOLUTIONIZES PRIVATE AVIATION INDUSTRY, WITH INTRODUCTION OF THE SHAREAJET EXCHANGEAs a response to the ever-evolving needs of their clientele, Blue Star Jets, one of the world’s largest private aircraft charter brokers, presents the June 2009 launch of the world’s first online social networking site for travelers seeking to fly privately, while minimizing costs— the ShareAJet Exchange.
As the first site of its kind, the ShareAJet Exchange will introduce travelers to flying privately together, helping clients connect with other flyers planning trips to similar destinations and arrange to share flights aboard a specific private aircraft. If a trip to the desired destination is not posted, clients may also upload their own travel plans with the aim of matching that with another traveler. Such a public, socially-interactive marketplace allows for clients to plan trips together, while also testing out various aircraft that may assist in determining a preference. The ShareAJet Exchange will prove ideal for consumers, travel agents, flight departments, jet charter companies and corporations seeking to save costs on business travel, while also opening the private aviation industry to commercial flyers, as it provides a savings of up to 50%.
This past fall, as the economy suffered a significant downturn, Blue Star Jets’ clients began inquiring if they could share private aircrafts flights in order to lessen costs— jet-setters are seeking to maintain their luxury lifestyle, while embracing a sense of frugality. As these requests grew, it became evident that Blue Star Jets possessed the volume to launch such a program. Holding access to an extensive network of private aviation operators, the Blue Star Jets team of travel specialists negotiates competitive pricing for every flight; in turn, with such savings components in place, the ShareAJet Exchange slashes an already lowered cost, resulting in unprecedented pricing for the private aviation industry.
This summer, Blue Star Jets expects an increase in demands for flights, from Southampton to the South of France, as the travel season hastens. Additionally the popularity of major travel destinations during specific times throughout the year – Los Angeles during award season, England for the Wimbledon Championships and Royal Ascot, Switzerland for Art Basel, France for the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival, and St. Barth and South Florida during the holiday season – will prove essential for travelers seeking to match itineraries with other flyers.
As Blue Star Jets granted travelers unmatched access to the private aviation industry through its centralization of the charter business, eliminating the need for fractional jet ownership, the ShareAJet Exchange will once again lower the barrier of entry for travelers into the marketplace as it brings down the costs of private aviation by up-to-50%. For example, a private aircraft flight on a Gulfstream jet from New York City to Los Angeles is currently around $25,000; through the ShareAJet Exchange, that price could be as low as $16,000. In addition to being financially smart, the ShareAJet Exchange also keeps with environmentally-conscious efforts, as carbon emissions are lessened through shared flights. ShareAJet Exchange opens the private aviation market to travelers who have previously solely flown commercial, as this Blue Star Jets program helps to lower private aviation costs, so that they rival the price of a first-class commercial aircraft ticket.
As a subsidiary of Blue Star Jets, ShareAJet Exchange has the capability to review and manage Part 135 Carriers, each meeting the most stringent of standards of the Federal Aviation Administration, while continuing to offer quality services to clients, as ShareAJet Exchange users will also benefit from all Blue Star Jets luxury travel partnerships. Launching internationally, available aircraft will include, but are not limited to, Gulfstream, Falcon, Jumbo and Citation X jets, as well as helicopters, and Turbo Props.
