Innovative Business Model For Private Jet Charter Booking To Be Showcased At National Business Aviation Association Expo
United States-based ClearJet.net recently launched an online private jet charter marketplace with a unique business model positioned to benefit both jet operators and passengers. The company's goal is to connect charter flight buyers directly with the best matched jet operators. ClearJet.net is a member of the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) and will be demonstrating their new online-based system during the NBAA Expo in Orlando, Florida, on October 29 through November 1, 2012.
In the highly competitive charter industry that garners transactions in the tens of thousands of dollars, ClearJet.net has set out to evolve the charter booking process by making it simple, transparent and direct. For the private jet traveler to locate the jet that will best meet their specific criteria, they submit a single anonymous flight request to secure confirmed flight quotes from multiple safety-rated jet operators.
With private flight options such as fractional ownership, jet time cards and on-demand charters, each having multiple companies offering similar solutions, the decision-making process can become daunting, and buyers lose the clarity needed to make the right choice. ClearJet.net is approaching the industry from a simple and practical perspective by creating a network connected to the top safety-rated jet operators from around the country and then providing their members direct access to those jet operators. The system allows members [charter flight buyers] to anonymously submit flight itinerary requests to the full network of qualified operators, who then respond with quotes that include the aircraft's photos, amenities, flight cost and flight time. The price the operator quotes is the exact price the member sees. Members review the multiple jet options they have received and accept the qualified quote that best suits their needs. When the member accepts the quote, locking in the price and the jet, both the member and operator's contact information is shared directly between the two to complete the booking process.
“We believe ClearJet.net is positioned to fill a growing demand by those who utilize private jets and seek better options and information,“ said Clay Curtis, President of ClearJet.net. “Our members appreciate having such an effective and efficient way to evaluate and select on-demand private flights. We charge a $499.00 fee to lock in a quote, and that is only after the member has reviewed their options. Because it is free to join and submit a flight request, there are no barriers to finding the right jet.” He also points out, “The safety-rated jet operators benefit by receiving direct access to quote flight requests submitted by members. Direct email notifications are sent to the member and operator, making it easy to manage the process, and members and operators can log into their dashboard to review and compare flight options.”
ClearJet.net partners with top safety-rated operators who are seeking to extend their own marketing capabilities and receive qualified leads with no up-front cost until a flight is booked. The ClearJet.net system only sends a direct notification to operators who have a registered jet that can fulfill the request, so each notification sent to an operator is a true opportunity.
Drew Kemp, Vice President of Business Development, said, “Our system allows operators to engage new customers with a minimal investment of their own energy and resources, allowing them to focus on providing quality service to their growing client base. We do the work by having our members' flight requests go directly to the operators for quoting.”
