Flexible pricing options lower the barrier of entry for private jet travel and offers cost-effective alternatives to membership programs.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 8, 2004 -- Executive Charter Services (ECS), a
leading private jet travel company today announced a guaranteed pricing model to
compete with membership and jet card programs. ECS offers guaranteed pricing
with no long term commitments, no monthly management fees, and no up front
“Although membership and jet card programs lend a perceived level of sophistication, we believe straight forward, guaranteed pricing is a smarter alternative for the end user," explains Kevin Godlewski, President of Executive Charter Services. “It's amazing to me that people are willing to hand over $50,000 to $100,000 for a travel card that ends up costing them more per flight hour in the long run."
Starting immediately, ECS will offer unrestricted access and guaranteed pricing of $2,300 per hour for light-jets and $3,350 per hour for mid-sized jets with a 2.5 hour daily minimum. Unlike other programs, prices include Federal Excise Tax, Segment Fees, Overnights and Landing fees.
A price comparison between ECS and a leading membership program concludes that clients who fly 25 hours in light jets will do so at a cost of $57,500 with Executive Charter Services and $71,250 with other programs. In most cases ECS uses the same jet network as other companies, yet the price tag is significantly lower. Even the most discerning travelers can recognize the benefits of a pay as you go model.
Several ECS clients--who include A-list celebrities, athletes, political figures and businesses--will benefit from the new guaranteed pricing model, including Mark Hampton--who uses ECS about 50 hours annually--to jet high profile speakers to events across the country. “It’s really the best of all worlds. We get access to world-class jets, nationwide availability, amazing attention to detail and the price is right,” explains Hampton.
In addition to guaranteed pricing, ECS clients receive concierge services, frequent flyer rewards and a private travel manager at their service 24 hours a day--services typically reserved for membership and jet card programs.
All aircraft used by ECS have been subjected to intense scrutiny and inspection by one of three independent aircraft-auditing firms. Light Jets include but are not limited to Beechjet 400A, Citation Encore, Lear 35, Premier I and Citation II/SP. Mid sized jets include but are not limited to Citation Excel, Hawker 800XP, Lear 60, Astra SPX, and Hawker 800.
Executive Charter Services (ECS) is a leading provider of private jet charter for distinguished travelers nationwide. With access to more than 1,500 Part 135 safety audited jets, ECS has one of the quickest response times in the industry. For more information visit www.execcharter.com or call 866.FLY.EXEC
