Bringing the fun and glamour back to air travel, it’s the first
online system allowing passengers to select both private jet and
commercial airline options all-in-one
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–VolJet announces the consumer launch of VolJet.com, a luxury air travel
website that makes flying by private jet more affordable and accessible
to premium air travelers than ever before. It is the first online system
to design itineraries with both private jet and commercial airline
options, delivering increased flexibility, maximum value and the perfect
elite seat to passengers.
“VolJet.com offers those who want to save time and money unprecedented
options to fly on private jets,” said VolJet Co-Inventor, Co-Founder and
CEO Susan Sloan. “Value-conscious consumers now have access to all the
advantages of private jet travel at prices well below typical charter
rates. Most importantly, it’s a quick and easy way to obtain the exact
cost of a flight without wasting valuable time searching or negotiating
Open to all U.S. destinations, VolJet.com:
Creates a new market space for first class travelers who have
considered jet charter cost-prohibitive and/or inaccessible.
Introduces the revolutionary “charter and save” feature for those who
already fly by private jet, but are interested in getting money back
as people join their charter.
Allows premium travelers with similar travel desires to form groups
and share the cost of flying by private jet.
Books each leg of the trip individually, so travelers can mix and
match private charter and commercial airline options.
Provides travelers the freedom to charter their own aircraft or book
flights on commercial airlines.
Requires no upfront charges, membership fees or personal information
to search for flights and fares.
VolJet.com provides a solution for the nearly 40 percent of chartered
aircraft that fly empty or at very low capacity during one leg of a
trip. “No plane should fly empty,” said VolJet Co-Inventor, Co-Founder
and COO Laurence Rabe. “It’s not a good business model, not good for the
community and not good for the environment.”
On a separate portal, Voljet.com’s preferred network of jet operators
can view groups and assign aircraft to flights via a real-time online
system, which increases revenue and drives down costs. Participating
operators are required to meet the highest industry standards for
safety, business ratings and reputation.
Using patent-pending technology, VolJet.com provides access to more than
900 U.S. airports, compared to fewer than 500 when flying commercial.
This means more people can avoid crowded check-in lines, unexpected
delays, long layovers and congested airports, plus arrive at their
destinations on time and rested.
There are four simple steps to booking flights on VolJet.com:
1. Choose – Input desired city pairs to charter, form a group or join an
2. Input – Enter travel details for each leg of the
trip. For the charter and save option, invite others to join.
Review – Review results and options, make selections and reserve.
Commit – Pay for your trip.
Next, travelers can leverage social media and email address books to
post itineraries and gain exposure for others to join and book flights
directly through the posted links. VolJet.com features “buy now”
pricing, with the full amount due at booking. Passengers can also
request special concierge services and amenities from the jet operator.
“Time is precious and once it is gone, you can never get it back,” said
Sloan. “Making the most of time and having fun again while you travel is
what VolJet.com offers. It’s a valuable service for those whose time is
money. Our methodology and system architecture are highly adaptable and
can be used for all types of high-value assets desiring more revenue
through higher utilization, such as yachts and perhaps even a future
space flight voyage!”
While VolJet.com has been designed as a user-friendly tool for public
use, it can also serve as an effective corporate travel tool. It is a
perfect air reservation system to save travel agents, executive
assistants, celebrity managers and corporate travel coordinators
valuable time and money. For more information, visit www.voljet.com
