MyVipFlight Launches a Web Platform For Its Private Jet Travelling.
MyVipFlight based in Van Nuys, California, has recently manage to launch a web platform that is making travel by private jet more accessible to the general public. On certain routes such as between the Bay Area and Burbank, the cost is about $180 more, per person, than Southwest Airlines Business Select. The difference is, when traveling by private jet, passengers can arrive 15 minutes before the flight, parking is free, bags are free, drinks and snacks are free and the aircraft departs in a matter of minutes.
Disruptive technology? “After filing out the request form on the site, within about 20 minutes you are either given the date and time of a group you can automatically connect with and an option to book and join the flight or, you are told how many others are requesting the same times as you and how many more are needed to finalize a group of up to 8 people and secure the rate quoted to you,” says Mike Bremner, President and cofounder of MyVipFlight.com. “No need to talk with other passengers, the system does everything and walks you through step by step, from inquiry, viewing your options, right up to booking,” Bremner continues. “Not ready to book just yet? Users can subscribe to an email service and be notified of last minute space available that is required to complete a group and send them on their way.”
Their policy seems completely above board, guaranteeing not to take anyone’s payment information until all details are confirmed. They even offer a chance to cancel and receive a full refund if they need to find a charter company and aircraft to fulfill the charter that is different than the one the client was told at the time of booking.
MyVipFlight is very clear about the fact they are a “Bona Fide” agent and representative of the traveler/client for the charter of private aircraft. The first page of their site explains they don’t own, or operate, any aircraft, nor do they have a full time contract with any charter carrier, or airline. They simply provide a platform to connect people who are traveling to the same or similar destinations, and form what the Department of Transportation calls a “Single Entity Charter”, with MyVipFlight as their agent and representative.
Passengers travelling between the Bay Area and Burbank or, Van Nuys and Las Vegas or Phoenix, should fill out the request form that’s available at their site, they may be pleasantly surprised and in for a real treat.
