Surf Air Reaches 2,000 Member Milestone

Nation’s First Private Air Travel Club Welcomes 2,000th
Member and Increases Fleet Order

, the nation’s first all-you-can-fly private airline,
announced today it has reached a significant milestone in its growth
story—selling its 2,000th membership. This marks a
significant year of expansion for the company, adding service to
numerous key new markets, increasing to 80 peak daily departures
throughout California and adding eight new PC-12NG aircraft to its
fleet, with an additional two to be delivered by year end.

“When we started out this year, we had 850 Members, six planes and
service to only six markets,” said CEO of Surf Air, Jeff Potter. “With
the tremendous response to our innovative offering, we are proud to be
celebrating the addition of our 2,000th Member – exceeding a
doubling in membership in just nine months. Also due to this response
and substantial increase in Members, we are announcing that we are
exercising our 2016 Pilatus PC-12 option positions and accelerating
deliveries throughout the year. This means by the end of 2016, we will
be more than doubling the size of the Surf Air fleet.”

Surf Air is geared toward frequent regional business and leisure
travelers, providing a hassle-free flying experience in the company of
an inspiring Member community—which serves as a networking platform in
the sky. The company’s membership is a mix of C-level executives,
entrepreneurs, tech start-ups, celebrities and athletes that need quick
and easy access throughout California’s western seaboard. By utilizing
the membership club model, the company is able to offer the private
aviation experience and offer it at affordable rates, demonstrated by
the fact that 80% of the current Members’ previous mode of travel was
commercial aviation rather than private aircraft.

Notably, their 2,000th membership went to David Ritterbush,
the newly appointed CEO of Pop
, who made the decision to become a Member of Surf Air so he
could create a more seamless transition between work and home.

“I decided to join Surf Air for the cumulative value that is offered. My
office is in LA and my home is in the Bay Area and I needed a way to
move between the two that offered the greatest convenience and
reliability,” said Ritterbush. “Surf Air allows me to commute up and
down the coast without the traditional hassles associated with air
travel. The additional concierge services is an added bonus, so far
everyone has been incredibly Member-centric.”

Surf Air’s recent expansion is making a larger membership base possible.
The company is scheduled to receive seven additional PC-12NG aircraft as
part of the original 15 aircraft order placed in March 2015. They have
also exercised options on nine additional deliveries for 2016, an
increase in two additional aircraft vs. their original order to
accommodate their rapid growth. Having recently expanded to Napa,
Monterey and Sacramento and with the addition of Palm Springs on the
horizon, Surf Air will serve 10 markets by end of year with additional
market expansion to come in 2016.


Surf Air is the nation’s first private air travel club offering
unlimited monthly flights. Geared toward frequent regional business and
leisure travelers, Surf Air provides a hassle-free flying experience in
the company of an inspiring Member community. Its growing fleet of
executive private aircraft operates from convenient private airports in
the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles Metro Area, Santa Barbara,
Truckee/Lake Tahoe, Napa, Monterey and Sacramento and Las Vegas,
(operated in partnership with Advanced Air). Service will begin soon in
Palm Springs, and additional locations to follow. For more information,
