The recent launch of PrivateJetShare.com has opened up an online global network enabling travellers to book individual seats and empty legs on private jets at affordable prices to and from destinations worldwide.
Private jet users conscious of the current financial climate can share travel costs with members and equally first class commercial travellers can now afford the luxury of a seat on a private jet. Whether jetting off to St Moritz for the Snow Polo or a meeting in Moscow, using PrivateJetShare.com saves executive time and reduces previous costs associated with private travel. PrivateJetShare.com will open up private aviation to a wider audience, creating a network of like-minded members and affiliates.
Private Jets have long been viewed as an exclusive and privileged way of travelling only accessible to the elite. This innovative service offered by PrivateJetShare.com utilises available seats (and empty legs) on private jet charters to provide affordable connections with all the benefits and luxuries of private travel. Members can also charter a jet and share the cost with fellow members by posting available seats and empty legs online. Members that have registered an interest in this route are notified of new posts via e-mail or text message.
Alex Hunter, managing director of PrivateJetShare.com,
“Private jet users can now avoid the expense of hiring an entire aircraft by being able to offer members the opportunity to share their luxury cabin space – it`s a trading platform for private jet seats with a first rate service to match.”
You can Register free online at PrivateJetShare.com to gain access to a detailed schedule of flights. Once members find a seat they wish to buy or want to post their own seats for sale there is an annual fee of £300 paid with the first booking. Members then enjoy all the perks of private aviation – more airports to fly to and from, private terminals – no queues for security and immigration and no lost baggage.

Interesting concept. Whilst we haven’t trialed this service, the idea sounds like a winner in the current financial climate.
