NEW YORK, June 28, 2016 – Skyjet, one of the nation’s largest charter jet companies and an aviation industry technology pioneer since 1997, today introduced enhancements to its website, Skyjet.com. Visitors to the new Skyjet.com can now utilize an instant booking feature that empowers them to select the exact type of jet they need from a custom fleet, see the price and book their flight online instantly using a credit card, wire transfer or funds on account. All of the same features that give users such a seamless booking experience on Skyjet’s iPhone app are now available on its website.
“We are an aviation company first and foremost, and so we take pride in making it as easy as possible for people to travel by accessing private aircraft in an on-demand fashion,” said Skyjet President Greg Richman. “Booking aircraft directly through our new website gives people yet another way to gain on-demand access to private aircraft without the hassle of upfront financial commitments and membership fees.”
When users want to book a jet, they can do so immediately with Skyjet Max instant booking. Skyjet Max offers Skyjet.com visitors instant, exclusive charter access to a fleet of aircraft set aside just for Skyjet clients. All aircraft in the Skyjet Max fleet are available in a truly instant fashion since there are no wait times to obtain quotes and no need for jet owner approvals.
Skyjet’s access to this jet collection includes the Nextant 400XT, which Barron’s recently selected as one of its “Finest Five” business jets. No other charter broker can offer instant access to these aircraft.
If visitors to the new Skyjet.com do not see the type of jet they want under the Skyjet Max instant booking option, they may request a traditional quote through the site for a particular aircraft.
“As one of the world’s leading charter providers, we are constantly evaluating how we can best meet the needs of private jet travelers,” said Richman. “Given that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to how people choose to charter a jet, we have taken steps to ensure we are giving them as many ways as possible to access a private aircraft.”
Beyond the new Skyjet.com, those looking to secure a private jet on-demand without the hassle of upfront costs, membership fees or repositioning fees also can access them using:
Richman added, “At Skyjet, we offer a simple promise.
