Virgin Charter just announced the launch of its Charter Member Program, which offers members an invitation-only marketplace for selling, purchasing and booking charter flights on private aircraft. Great for those of you who opt for private air travel and killing the environment, although Sir Bronson will surely find some way of running charter flights off of garbage a la Back to the Future sometime soon. Charter Members will have exclusive access to post trip requests or submit quotes for private charter services. In February, Virgin Charter will expand the Marketplace to allow access to all buyers of private charter.
Virgin Charter has selected more than 100 of the industry’s best charter operators including Aerojet Services, Avjet Corporation, Clay Lacy, DB Aviation, ExpressJet Corporate Aviation, FlightWorks, Hop-A-Jet, Jet Source, Key Air, Segrave Aviation, Sun Air Jets, The Air Group, and XOJET, as well as key professional buyers of private charter to be the first to experience the Virgin Charter Marketplace. Virgin Charter is specifically designed to meet the needs of a wide range of buyers including corporate travel departments, travel agents, brokers, and individuals. Buyers and sellers who wish to be invited into the system may also apply online at VirginCharter.com or by visiting the company at NBAA in booth 1228.
To purchase a charter trip, Charter Members go online, locate available aircraft, negotiate pricing, and manage their entire trip over the Internet. Charter Member Operators make their inventory available to a large international customer base without changing the way they currently do business.
